GameChat – Blue Jays @ Twins, 6:10 pm

I’ve been so wrapped up in college football today, I almost forgot there was a Twins game tonight.

It’s “Deckstravaganza” at Target Field tonight and there are a number of famous, infamous and notorious Twins social media types enjoying the game from the Budweiser roof deck at the ballpark.

I’m not sure what that has to do with the game itself, but I hope they are all having a good time.

P.S. Per the Strib’s LaVelle E. Neal III’s pre-game blog post, Kernels’ hitting coach Tommy Watkins has joined the Twins’ coaching staff for September. Tommy’s a great guy and it’s terrific that he’s getting this opportunity! – JC
