    Spring Training Game Thread: Twins @ Cards, 3/19/14 @ 12:05pm (CDT)

    I'm not sure who will be watching/listening today after last night, but it's a new day and life goes on. And it's only ST after all, so here we go.

    Twins:
    SP, Gibson

    Aaron Hicks (S) CF
    Jason Bartlett (R) 3B
    Chris Colabello (R) DH
    Oswaldo Arcia (L) RF
    Wilkin Ramirez (R) LF
    Chris Parmelee (L) 1B
    Josmil Pinto (R) C
    Eduardo Escobar (S) 2B
    Pedro Florimon (S) SS


    Cards:
    SP, Martinez

    Matt Carpenter (L) 3B
    Kolten Wong (L) 2B
    Matt Holliday (R) DH
    Allen Craig (R) RF
    Yadier Molina (R) C
    Jhonny Peralta (R) SS
    Matt Adams (L) 1B
    Peter Bourjos (R) CF
    Stephen Piscotty (R) LF


    Let's play ball!

    Who are the other pitchers for the Twins listed for today? Haven't seen it yet. It makes no sense to me that Deduno is never scheduled to start. It makes me think they want him to start the year as a reliever so they can have one left handed starter - Diamond.

    I didn't see who else was slated to pitch today. Personally, I think Deduno is headed for the pen, at least to start the season, but we'll see.

    Looks like Gibson plus Deduno, Thielbar, Hoffman, Tonkin (in some order on the last 4).

    I hope Gardy just loves understatement.

    If we don't need a fifth starter for awhile in April, it could be that Deduno is on a different timetable to get stretched out and will be in the pen regardless the first couple weeks. By the time we need a fifth starter, he'll be ready to go.

    I still think Gibson will be the 5th starter, but then what do they do with Diamond? Stick him in the pen, too? Dunno. But I just don't think Deduno will last as a starter but maybe on occasional spot starts.

    Pretty clear these Cardinals announcers know nothing about the Twins. Nice first inning for Gibson. Not being behind Many-nothing really helps.

    Nice DP by the Cards to end the Twins half of the 2nd. Pinto fooled badly by the pitch.

    Cards announcers and fans alike went "oooooooh" after a nice play by Florimon on a bouncer up the middle. I thought he had a chance, he made it look easy.

    Too bad Parms didn't get the tag down, on that nice snap-throw by Pinto. They had the runner.

    The replay I saw looked like he got him. Pinto looked as if he thought so, too. But Gibson took care of the batter so no matter.

    Florimon looks at a strike down the middle. Still knocking the rust off - not easy to come back after surgery, even of the routine variety.

    Even without the effects of the surgery, his timing is what? 3 or 4 weeks behind everybody else?

    I'm not a big Florimonster supporter, but I certainly give him slack. That doesn't mean there isn't a decision to be made for how to start the regular season. That probably will come down to the final day of ST; hopefully the decision then will be clear.

    Kolten Wong is little. I just looked him up and he's 5'9" - maybe on 70s night at the discotheque in his platform soles.

    Can Bartlett make it to 30 at bats without a hit? I think he can.

    He needs to avoid falling into a slump.

    Arcia must have lost that in the sun. Otherwise that's a catch that needs to be made.
