Twins-White Sox: Pregame

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said the rotation will be set up to so everyone not named Jeff Manship will face the Tigers next week in the big four-game at Comerica Park. Manship will start tomorrow against the White Sox then Sunday at Kansas City.

Justin Huber took 23 swings (don’t ask why 23 because I don’t know) today and felt great. He hopes to lick his strained oblique muscle in time to be available before the road trip ends.

As part of the annual rookie hazing, the Twins made them dress up as Teletubbies for the trip to Chicago. And they weren’t allowed to run to their rooms and change, as everyone went out to the Grand Lux Cafe for dinner.

Just heard from the Jim Mandelaro in Rochester. Stan Cliburn and Rich Miller won’t return. Here’s his story.

It’s Oktoberfest at U.S. Cellular Field tonight. They just opened the gates and welcomed fans to the park -  in German. Whoowee, that really has me in the spirit. Ich bin so aufgeregt.

The Yankees scouts have followed the Twins here.
