    Scrimmage - Thursday, March 1 vs Boston

    Thanks to mlb.com's Rhett Bollinger, we have the starting lineup (not the batting order) for the Twins scrimmage on Thursday against the Red Sox. Pitchers will include Scott Baker, Nick Blackburn, Liam Hendriks, Jeff Manship, Jason Bulger, Carlos Gutierrez, Tyler Robertson, Brendan Wise and Deolis Guerra.

    In the field, the starters will be, "catcher J.R. Towles, first baseman Aaron Bates, second baseman Pedro Florimon, third baseman Ray Chang, shortstop Brian Dozier, left fielder Ben Revere, center fielder Joe Benson, right fielder Rene Tosoni and designated hitter Brian Dinkelman."

    We're getting close!

    BTCF, get real. This is a way for the Twins to look at many of the ungodly number of players that they brought to camp this year. I wonder when we will see game action from Burroughs...

    I have to assume that BCTF's comment was doused heavily in some sarcasm... The purpose of b-games is just this. Lots of players and lots of pitchers need to get work.

    I think the level of excitement I have for this game is probably a little alarming.

    And this morning, LaVelle Neal has posted the actual lineup.

    Twins lineup for B game: Revere (7) Chang (4), Tosoni (9), Benson (8), Dinkelman (DH), Bates (3), Dozier (6), Towles (2)Florimon (4).


    Note - I think it's just fine to be excited about a scrimmage, the first scrimmage of the year!

    Florimon has a real chance to make an impression.

    If for some reason Yoshi would decide to head home, or the Twins give up on him, and Dozier isn't ready(tho I'd pick him first),
    Florimon could step in and contribute.

    Revere will hit an opposite field single, book it!

    Moonshot Scott is in mid-season form -- has surrendered a home run to Ryan Lavarnway.

    Looks like it is 6-2. Do not know how the Sox scored the second run but Twins' scoring

    RBI single by Benson (Tosoni scores)
    RBI single by Towles (Dozier scores)
    2R Homer by Bates (??? and ??? score)
    2R Double by Dinkelman (??? and ??? score)

    Bates' HR was off Boston lefty Jesse Carlson who was a good setup guy with Toronto esp in 2008 and sat out all of 2011 because of injuries
