A Few Of My Favorite Things…

With the Twins set to take on the Seattle Mariners later tonight, I just wanted to share a few of the things I am looking forward to this season…

Opening Day Preview: Felix Hernandez (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. Francisco Liriano (0-0, 0.00 ERA).  “King Felix” can be dominating, but so can Cisco.  However, Liriano also needs to calm himself and not walk six guys through four innings or something like that.  I can see the Twins losing this game, but anything can happen at the Dome!!

I’m going to the game on friday against the White Sox. I’m a Cubs fan but when I’m rooting in the AL it’s always for the Twins!Go Twins!Stephaniehttp://steponme.mlblogs.com

Oh, I really really hope that Denard Span’s rookie season isn’t a fluke. We really do need someone who gets on base as much as he does at the top of the lineup. And someone who covers as much ground as he does in the outfield (he looked really good in LF yesterday, which was one of the few bright spots in that game). Hopefully things will go a little bit better tonight!-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.mlblogs.com
