Twins Stagger Into The Bronx...Yippee

The Minnesota Twins come into their 4 game series with the Yankees having largely been whipped by the Toronto Blue Jays in their opening series of the year. 

Yippee. 

Starting pitching was bad, Joe Nathan was shaky in his first save opportunity, and the hitting was sporadic...if you consider 'bad' equal to 'sporadic'.

And now they get to face the Yankees, a team the Twins just can't beat. 

Trying to reverse their recent futility,  tonight the Twins will start Scott Baker, and will be opposed by Ivan Nova.  I'd say the Twins have a fighting chance, but I'm sure Nova will throw a two hit shutout against the Good Guys.

On a positive note, the Twins have Justin Morneau back full time, and really, it's only three games into the season, so let's hold off on the 'Twins are doomed' meme until at least May 1st.
