Congratulations baseball fans – the off-season is over and you have survived to begin again!
We Twins fans don’t see action until tomorrow but regardless, it’s a good day to be a baseball fan.
Here’s the schedule of games that will be played today:
|All times Eastern. Subject to change.|
And in another piece of just general news, I received this notice from Tinger this morning:
“All these years we’ve been calling C.C. “Captain Cheeseburger”. They just said on ESPN that he dropped 25 pounds this winter by cutting Captain Crunch out of his diet. We’ve been going about this all wrong! I think that’s a solid reason for a name change.”
Given the long history many of us have with the Captain Cheeseburger moniker, and given the general distrust I have for C.C.’s ability to maintain this supposedly lower weight – afterall, who can actually tell? – I will accept BOTH names as appropriate nom de plume. I wonder if C.C. has an opinion on the cut mouth situation??
[UPDATE] Two former Twins played today and had records I thought worth noting.
A) Pat Neshek recorded his first National League Win for the San Diego Padres tonight. I couldn’t be happier for him.
B) Livan Hernandez pitched his 4th Season Opener for the Washington Nationals – and recorded his 4th Loss. Ouch.
