The Twins play tonight on Fox Sports North at 6:05 p.m. The 13-11 Twins will welcome JJ Hardy, Brendan Harris and the Baltimore Orioles to Hammond Stadium for one of their final tune ups of the year. Gardy has said that we are likely to see the Twins’ A lineup tonight. To me, that would be something like:
Denard Span CF, Tsuyoshi Nishioka 2B, Joe Mauer C, Justin Morneau 1B, Delmon Young LF, Jason Kubel DH, Michael Cuddyer RF, Danny Valencia 3B, Alexi Casilla SS.
That looks like a pretty strong lineup to me, a lineup that could score a lot of runs over the course of a season. It will be fun to watch them for six or seven innings and then get the chance to see some minor leaguers get some time. One of those minor leaguers scheduled to dress with the Twins is Minnesota native and Minnesota State-Mankato alum Mark Dolenc.
Throughout the game, I will be answering your questions in a Live Twins Chat starting at 6:00 CST. I have been doing these for several Wednesdays of late and it will be fun to do in-game. So, if you want an e-mail reminder for the chat, to participate in the chat, or to read the transcript later, Click Here.
It will be a lot of fun to watch the Twins and talk about them as well.
