Good news Pirates fans, the Twins return to face the Bucs tomorrow. The Twins are 8-3, BUT…We own the Twins in Grapefruit ball. A 2-1 victory and a 10-1 victory. A win will propel the Bucs into second place. Everyone knows I am dying to get those 2009 Grapefruit League Champion shirts printed.
Virgil Vasquez will make his first start tomorrow against the Minnesota Twins‘ Scott Baker (6IP 6.00ERA) in Bradenton. The Twins are fresh from a 17 hit victory over the Orioles.
On the mound for the Bucs will be Denny Bautista, Jesse Chavez, Chris Bootcheck and Sean Burnett will follow.
Attention all my Bradenton readers…Wear black if you are going to the game tomorrow. I hear the fans are organizing a Mike Tomlin-esque training camp psycholgoical ploy on the Twins. Black jerseys and polos please.
LETS GO BUCS!
