The big news today was that the Twins reached an agreement with Nick Gordon, the 5th overall pick in last week's draft, on a contract. His career will eventually begin in Elizabethton.
The other news was that Kendrys Morales had had enough watching and started the game at DH before getting pinch ran for late in the games.
RED WINGS REPORT
Rochester 1, Gwinnett 2
Brad Nelson's home run to dead-center field in the 4th inning cut Gwinnett's
The Twins remain in the 7th slot for the 2014 MLB Draft if the season ended today. It will be an interesting six weeks as only four games separate the 4th pick from the 15th pick. The Twins are currently 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs (who would pick 4th) and only 2.5 games behind Colorado (who would pick 15th).
The Red Wings announced this morning that OF Antoan Richardson would be activated and UTIL Brian Dinkelman would be placed on the DL with a quad strain.
First off, huge props to everybody involved in the investigation in Boston. An unfortunate event followed by an around-the-clock story, ending with very few fatalities. Those in Boston and the surrounding areas will finally be able to sleep peacefully tonight.
Back to baseball..
The Twins are postponed again, making today their third consecutive off-day. Now I can understand postponing a baseball game for snow or sleet, but tonight’s forecast is “chilling and windy”.
