Twins 4, Nationals 3 (11 innings): At what point is the question: "Are they better than this?" worth asking? 2 games under .500. Repeat after me: It's ony spring training. It's still early.
Video of Davey Johnson talking to the media postgame about getting his dander up. Interestingly, Davey also commented about his team seeming "lackadaisical". Wonder if that tone was set in Spring Training?
More injuries! Tyler Clippard and Denard Span both have X-Rays after the game; results negative. Via Washington Post:
Clippard emerged with hand heavily wrapped, but he shook off notion that the bruise could hold him out of action. Span, though, could miss at least the first half of tomorrow’s doubleheader with the severe bruise on his foot.
Given the track record of Nationals medical staff, Clippard is probably done for the season, and Span will be put on the 60 day DL, but not for another 3 weeks.
Go get 'em tomorrow.
