The Champ Is Here
Tonight, the Minnesota Twins open a 3-game series with the defending AL Champion Tampa Bay Rays (still not quite used to saying that, even this long after they won!). Both teams have been a bit off-and-on for these first few weeks of the season, with the Rays actually in the cellar of the AL East due to the hot start of the Toronto Blue Jays and the current red-hot success of the Boston Red Sox.
Preview (9-10, 4th, 1.5 GB DET): Jeff Niemann (1-2, 5.40) vs. Scott Baker (0-2, 12.46). Baker needs to keep the ball down…period.
