It’s exhibition baseball (not to be confused with Spring Training baseball)!
Tonight the Twins visit the Braves in Hotlanta. Both teams appear to be using the DH, to that’s something the Braves fans don’t see a lot of!
The game is on the radio in the Twin Cities, but I don’t think it’s on FSN. I believe it may be on the MLB Network, but it’s also apparently going to be on MLB.tv online (I hope).
This one still doesn’t “count”, but we’re getting closer Twins fans!

Going to put up a GameChat for the game tonight, too, for anyone inclined to stop by.
Not a good way to end this game, but at least it doesn’t count. I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more offense out of this lineup that’s supposed to be so good, too. Nice few innings by Blackie (4 IP, 1H, 1BB), facing the minimum number of hitters thanks to a couple of double plays.
Better luck Wednesday!
