Twins begin series at home with Royals tonight...is Morneau gone?
The Minnesota Twins were off yesterday and will open
up a six-game homestand tonight against the Kansas City Royals. The teams
will play three games before Houston comes to town for three contests. Mike
Pelfrey will take the mound for Minnesota in this evening's series opener.
He is 4-and-8 with a 5.15 earned run average this season. K-C will counter
with Ervin Santana, who is 6-and-6 with a 3.06 ERA on the year. First pitch
is set for 7:10 p.m. at Target Field in Minneapolis. As the trade deadline approaches, there are rumors that the Twins have traded away slugger and 2006 MVP Justin Morneau. (MNN)
