More Photos Of Target Field And Other Stuff

Thought I would attach a few more photos from last night’s exhibition game at Target Field between the Minnesota Twins and St. Louis Cardinals.

But first, a few other things:

  • Jon Weber didn’t make the New York Yankees, but he took home some hardware for the great spring he had. The former Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks player will head to his familiar Triple-A surroundings again. Hopefully, he gets a shot in the bigs sometime this season.
  • The Twins ended their closer-by-committee experiment faster than anyone expected. On Friday, three days before the regular season starts, the Twins decided that Jon Rauch will open the season as the closer. My guess is the Twins said closer-by-committee just because they were working on a trade – probably for Toronto’s Jason Frasor – and it didn’t happen. Just a guess, though.
  • Finally, make sure to pick up a copy of Sunday’s Forum. We’re doing some Twins preview stuff that doesn’t really translate well to the Web. Some if it will be on too, but not all of it.

Without further ado, here’s some more photos from Friday’s opener at Target Field:
