    Think what it is going to look like when they play somebody better than the White Sox .... which is just about everybody.

    Sigh. But hey using that post somewhere WAY up above, the Twins really won this game.

    Talking Hair's postgame comment on Correia: "didn't have overpowering stuff". Only two earned today, so imagine how good he'll be when he gets back to his old, overpowering stuff...

    I'm not going to freak out about Deduno throwing a wild pitch in his 1st appearance when it's 30 degrees out.

    However, this is exactly why he is not a great bullpen option. He belongs in the rotation & Pelfrey in AAA.

    Apparently their Advance Scouts are better than their Latin America Scouts.

    Ok, it's 2 games and many of us expect a losing season, so I'm not going to get worked up.

    That said, can we please stop using the weather as an excuse?
    I see the weather being used as an excuse for Perkins and now Deduno.
    Are the White Sox playing in the same weather as we are? Or is it only cold every half inning?

    Well they did give up six runs to the Twins lineup, so yeah, it's probably a valid excuse.

    On alternating sides of the diamond. Going uphill. Both ways.

    Hicksie on pace to equal his 2013 walk total and fall just six shy of his 2013 hit total... by the end of April.

    I might surprise you here. I've stated many times about my dissatisfaction over Plouffe's play. Mainly the issue was his feet. He doesn't move them like an infielder should.

    On the play in question... He moved his feet... Charged the ball. So... Hats off to Plouffe... I consider that progress.

    Of course... He one hopped the catcher from with the play right in front of him. How do you do that?

    Plouffe... Has to hit homers or his existence in the majors is questionable.

    Deduno... They couldn't hit him... He's hard to hit and apparently hard for Suzuki to catch as well.

    Terrible baseball... Not MLB quality on the 2nd day of April.

    But I'm liking Hicks Right Now... He's looking confident. I might pick him up for fantasy baseball team. He might be here to stay.

    There's probably some followup line to be made about in vitro fertilization resulting in Twins, but at the moment I'm shooting blanks.
