A shout out to Harmon Killebrew who is unable to throw out the first pitch due to his health.

Harmon, you will be in our thoughts and prayers tonight as Tony O tosses the ball on your behalf. Best wishes being sent your way from all of us here in Minnesota.

The Twins are only six games into the season out of 162 games, so calling 2011 a frustrating year seems to be a bit premature. However, the Twins had a rough couple road series, and losing Nishioka is sad news. Whatever people thought of his performance, he was starting to show signs of becoming a good number 2 hitter. His speed will be missed. The Twins have few options for the number 2 spot. It looks as if Casilla will be asked to pick up his game. If Morneau or Young were swinging hot bats, Mauer might make the best number 2 hitter, but Gardenhire never liked that idea.

Bill Smith should call up the Rangers make a trade for Mike Young. Very weak infield now and could use another good right handed bat. With the price of tickets and food along with no more free tv they can afford him.
