    He and JO Berrios and Andrew Albers are not on the official list of Non-Roster invites, but they are there preparing for the WBC and the Twins are supportive of that.

    So does 96 not broadcast this? I'm getting questionable music and not play by play!

    I know that we have agreed as a group that spring training stats mean little or nothing, but as a point of information only I would note that Rosario is batting ,500 (2 for 4 for the season).

    Top 6 - Brian Duensing pitching, James Beresford at 3B, Danny Santana at SS, Josmil Pinto is catching. Shelley Duncan got out. Chris Gimenez got on when a one-hopper went off of Santana's chest. Wil Myers doubled to right with Gimenez advancing to 3B. Bourgeios grounded to SS for a single to score the run and advance the runner. Fontenot had a broken bat single to score another run. Beckham grounded to Morneau who booted it. Keirmaier then popped up to Beresford. Double steal. Sean O'Malley grounded to Rosario for the 3rd out.

    Figured it out - the website isn't clear that you can't stream the game online.

    I can barley pickup the station downtown Minneapolis less than a mile from Target Field using a regular ol' radio. 1500 was much higher quality than this on AM.

    Morneau had a single in the 6th inning, but that was it.

    Btm 7 - Danny Santana walked. Brandon Boggs struckout looking and on the pitch, Santana was picked off at 1st base by the catcher. Eddie Rosario walked. Josmil Pinto popped out to deep second base.

    They are letting him get in shape for the WBC.

    According to LEN's post in the strib...
    Kyle Gibson threw a pitch in the fourth inning that registered 96 miles an hour on the stadium radar gun. Say what? I checked wtih a scout in the stands, and Gibson topped out at 95. That's pretty darn good for a first outing. Gibson has to fine tune his command in future outings, but if he's feeling good enough to let it loose like that, wow.

    Anthony Slama in for the top of the 9th. Walked the first batter (Kiermaier), which is one of the keys for him. O'Malley reaches on an error by Rosario, runner to 3B. O'Malley steals second. Slama walked the next batter to lead the bases. 2-run single gives the Rays a 6-2. lead... Gotta post this message, maybe it'll help Slama get an out.

    It did get Slama out of the game. And Guerra in. Nice rally by the Twins in the bottom to score 5, but not nearly enough for Guerra. As TR said before the game, Guerra is the last straw from the Santana trade, and was at A ball at 19, but he's been here 4 years now and it's time to step up. So, Twins lose in 10.

    I'm starting to change my mind. While I believe that he could very well be a GG CF, I no longer think his bat is going to be so great that we are looking at a perrenial All Star. Maybe that's why they seem to be willing to let him earn a job out of ST.
    Bet there's no way they'd let Arcia come up before June. That is, of course, if he's ready this year at all.
    Look at the progress go-go Gomez has made, me thinks Hicks will be a solid defensive player , and his bat will catch up to his D in his 3rd year
