GameChat – Twins @ Tigers, 6:05pm

It’s getting to be that time of year where little that happens before the game truly affects much what will happen DURING the game. So, we have a pretty normal lineup today and Deduno hoping to continue his improvements on the mound. The Tigers lineup is always a good test!

[EDIT] The game is currently under a rain delay – which could be extensive. But if the weather allows at all, they’ll get the game in tonight because there’s just not much season or travel time left. Current estimates have the heavy rain arriving about 6:30pm CT and the game POSSIBLY starting approximately 8-8:30pm. *crosses fingers*
