    Hopefully, it is a few complimentary at bats before he is shipped out...

    Spring training road trip. Moeller on spring training road trip. It's spring. Many reasons for many things. Doesn't mean that Moeller will be on this club, or, if he is, that he will be DH-ing during the Cleveland series...

    Milton vs. Ponson...looks to be a real pitcher's duel.

    The Reds are playing a lot of scrubs, but the Twins sure have all of their big guns in...

    Hopefully "former Twin" Eric Milton doesn't drill "current Twin" Torii Hunter in the head like "former Twin" Kyle Lohse did during the last Twins affair.

    Most of the starters made this trip though.

    Is this Hamiltons first time in the 4 spot?

    That's a scary thought. 5-9 in that order aren't exactly putting the fear of God in anyone. Even Sid Ponson.

    Re: Game Thread - 3/21 vs. Twinkies

    Interview with Chris Denorfia on the pre-game show. Big topic: his new uniform number.

    Deno says he's "looking to stick". He also calls out power as the shortcoming in his game. Last year taught him humility, apparently. Retarded question from the interviewer about "bulling over" his competition on the basepaths. Or something. What's he gonna say, "Yeah, dude, that's a great idea! Maybe I'll hit Norris Hopper with a steel chair!"

    It's funny how he's treated as some green rookie kid, like he's still understanding the big-league game. Deno is a year older than Brandon Phillips, eight months younger than Adam Dunn and just twelve years and nine months younger than Rheal Cormier.

    Which is why it's almost put up or shut up time for him. He's not getting any younger.
