Twins skipper Ron Gardenhire has a sheet explaining which plays can be reviewed and which cannot. Seems like a good reference.

Some clown thinks games should be shortened to seven innings.

Ryan Cook has been activated from the disabled list, and Evan Scribner has been optioned to Sacramento.

What can we learn from the first week of the season? Marc Normandin presents us with a few indisputable facts.

In the minor leagues today, Josh Lindblom takes the hill for the River Cats against Daisuke Matsuzaka. Matsuzaka will face his old teammate, Hiro Nakajima.

On this day a year ago, the A's finished off a three-game sweep at Minute Maid Park, but Josh Reddick smashed into a wall, injuring his wrist.

Today's starting lineup includes Yoenis Cespedes, despite his banged-up heel. It does not, however, include Coco Crisp, who received a cortisone shot to his wrist. Derek Norris will catch today despite Minnesota starting a right-hander, Kevin Correia. Alberto Callaspo will handle the DH duties.
