MIN @ DET

Postby Cornbread Maxwell » Thu Apr 08, 2004 2:10 pm

Openning day at Comerica.

Silva V. Cornejo

Min is missing Hunter, Mauer, and Lecroy.
Det is minus Young.

I like our chances - MINs certainly arent trotting out the power with Mientkiewicz and Koskie batting 3, 4.

Batter Up!

3-0 MIN

Cornejo is getting hit around. Every MIN hit has pretty much been in the same spot. Cornejo is having control issues - leaving at least one pitch an AB up in the batters breadbox.

damn.

For years I've liked the Tigers. Not as much as our Twins, but they've been a team that I always kinda pulled for. I really liked the old ballpark up there, was very interesting to watch games from there.

It's kinda funny, this season the turf at the dome was put in just before opening day. The team goes from playing on concrete painted green pretty much, to this state-of-the-art plastic grass stuff. And all of a sudden we are decimated by injuries in the first series?!?!?!!? I think the surface will come around eventually, it is a neat product to say the least.

Sorry to see Young go down with the leg. But it didn't stop the sweep of the Jays.

I think it's time to end Detroits delusions of an undefeated season, though. Just to get it out of the way. :*) Heh heh!! Go Twins (what's left of ya at least!)

who would have guessed that Sanchez would hit a hr before he ever stole a base this season?
