Twins-Royals: Pregame

Sorry this is late. Blame Seth.

Seth Stohs was on the field before the game today. “You ever meet Seth?” Joe C. asked. “Seth who?” I replied.

Then I looked towards the Twins’ dugout, and there was Seth. “Oh, that Seth.”

So we chatted with Seth for a few minutes. It was good to meet the man who does prolific minor league coverage for his website.

Now I’m back upstairs with updates.

Glen P’erkins’ MRI showed no structural damage, but he was going to consult with Dr. Dan Buss during the game. “I know something isn’t right,” Perkins said. He said he knows when his shoulder is strong, and what he’s feeling right now isn’t strong. “We have to do some more investigating.” he said.

Joe Crede went through an entire pre-game session and hopes to return to the lineup tomorrow. He’s hoping this is the last step back he has to take this year.

Carl Pavano will start Thursday opposite of Gil Meche. The Twins waited for Pavano to give them the all-is-good sign after leaving the team to pick up his family and bring it to the Twin Cities.

Righthanders are hitting .305 vs Kyle Davies, who has lost seven of his last eight starts. Justin Morneau is 1-for-15 against him.

 Update: I don’t know what’s going on tonight, but the legendary Bat Girl was lurking outside the pressbox before the game. It was an emotional moment…..
