Signs Of Spring & Opening Day

Well after a long hard winter at least in terms of recent history, must be global warming, it appears spring is finally here. Most of this years snow pack is gone, temps will be in the 50's all weekend and all the talk is either about flooding or baseball. We'll stick to baseball since it is less stressful and more fun to follow.

Spring training has been under way for several weeks now and the Twins made their first cuts of camp already last Monday from 59 to 45 players. Another 4 players were optioned or reassigned to minor league camp today including OF Ben Revere who is likely to see action with the big league club this season. Revere had a very positive attitude about the situation tweeting he had to go down and work his a** off to get back up and play with the guys.

All the snow is long gone from Target Field thanks to heating coils underneath, the tarp is off and the field was mowed yesterday for the first time. Ahh the smell of fresh cut grass in the spring, doesnt get any better than that.

Today also marked the availability of single game tickets for the first time this year as they went on sale within an hour of this posting. Tickets are available at Target Field, by phone or

Time for those words which are music to my ears....Play ball!!
