    ST Game Thread: Twins v Orioles, 3/14/14 @ 12:05pm (and @ Yankees, too)

    Greetings from Florida. Wish I could be at today's game but other duties prevail. It's a nice sunny day here today but a bit breezy; temps should hit 80 today. What is it in Minnesota today?

    Orioles:
    Paul, RF
    Weeks, 2B
    Urritia, LF
    Pearce, 1B
    Clevenger, C
    Reimold, DH
    Schoop, SS
    Berry, CF
    Almanzar, 3B

    SP, Chen

    Twins:

    Presley, CF
    Suzuki, C
    Mauer, DH
    Willingham, LF
    Plouffe, 3B
    Parmelee, 1B
    Mastroianni, RF
    Escobar, 2B
    Bartlett, SS

    SP, Pelfrey

    Okay, here we go .......

    And up north v the Yankees we have ...

    Twins:
    Hicks, CF
    Dozier, 2B
    Kubel, DH
    Arcia, RF
    Colabello, 1B
    Ramirez, LF
    Romero, 3B
    Pinto, C
    Santana, SS
    SP: Gibson

    Yankees:
    Ellsbury, CF
    Roberts, 2B
    Teixeira, 1B
    McCann, C
    Nunez, SS
    Flores, LF
    O'Brien, DH
    Williams, RF
    Segedin, 3B
    SP: Phelps

    And, more to discuss ... two threads for games being played at the same time gets complicated so put all game stuff here.

    Whew, Suzuki in the second spot. It's just a spring lineup, but that's an indictment of the three guys batting 7-8-9, all of whom have skillsets suggesting leadoff or second but none of whom have as yet forced their way up there their based on performance. Mastro's my adopt-a-prospect guy from a couple seasons ago so I'll forever root for him but I'm losing hope at this point; Escobear is the one who has a chance.

    I just got home for a quick lunch and turned the game on. I noticed the Rays and decided (conditioned actually) to just pretend I was watching the Rays instead.

    Pinto and Santana with back to back rockets vs the Yankees. Single for Pinto, double for Santana. Nice to see them making some really solid contact.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    Spring is a confusing time. I thought the Twins were playing the Yankees, and Hicks was leading off.

    Oh wait. They are, and he is. Split squad.

    So. Mistakes can happen in an overly rich environment like that. I don't think it phases anybody.

    I just added the lineups for the Yankee game, too. Two games, one stop shopping.

    Bartlett with another well hit line drive that's run down in the LCF gap. The man can not buy a break.

    The Pirates are playing the Phillies. That could be an interesting one too. Can you please add their lineups? Looks like it's 4-2 Philly, in the 6th. Manhsip did well in his 4 innings.

    Actually was Flores who ran Bartlett down in LCF, but whatever.

    Eric Ferris just dropped a bases loaded blooper on the chalk in RF that bounced in to the seats for a ground rule double.

    Could have used a couple of those runs at Hammond.
