I really do have to admit that I’m looking forward to the point in the season where I might actually be able to WATCH some baseball instead of wish I was somewhere other than work….
The only roster notes I have kept track of for today are that Gardy would rather not use either Swarzak or Roenicke – being careful. And Scott Diamond is supposedly still “on target” for a Friday appearance.
|Hicks, CF||Gordon, LF|
|Mauer, C||Escobar, A, SS|
|Willingham, LF||Butler, DH|
|Morneau, 1B||Moustakas, 3B|
|Doumit, DH||Perez, S, C|
|Plouffe, 3B||Hosmer, 1B|
|Parmelee, RF||Francoeur, RF|
|Dozier, 2B||Cain, CF|
|Florimon, SS||Getz, 2B|
|Correia, P||Santana, E, P|
Sadly, or perhaps luckily, I missed the last two innings while trying to get my butt out of the office… We had a good thing going until Correia hit the wall. Then things didn’t go so well. I will give Kevin credit in the fact that his wall came in the 8th inning which I think is pretty darn good at this point of April.
After some craziness at the plate involving a blocked stolen base by Florimon, he got a spike to the thigh but says he’s ok. The official call about DeVries appears to a strained pronator – supposedly nothing terribly serious – but as Seth Stohs pointed out: the last two Twins players to have that injury were Anthony Slama and Kyle Gibson. :/
Since we haven’t yet been able to win the first game of a series but then followed up with wins enough to follow, let’s see what the boys can do for us tomorrow!
