This should offer some hope that the Twins will actually get this home opener in. However, after coming back to Minnesota from being in the 80's and sunny down in Ft. Meyers, 54 degrees will most likely make players succumb to turtlenecks and ear flap hats.
Ron Gardenhire is tight lipped about who will start on the mound, but all indications thus far point toward Vance "Vanimal" Worley getting the nod. Scott Diamond would've been the opening day starter, but he most likely won't be ready to go for another week or so. The umpires do allow the pitchers to blow on their hands during cold weather so if the "Vanimal" has a spit ball, this would be the time to bust it out.
If the rain and cold prove to be just too much for our sun baked club, no worries, the Twins were 3-0 in double headers last year.
