Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Weather looks iffy for Twins game tonight

Don't know how else to put this, but the Twins could use a rainout tonight.

They're scheduled to play the Indians at 7:10 p.m. Looking at, there's a good chance of rain at Target Field.

Team president Dave St. Peter has said, via Twitter, that if tonight's game is postponed, it probably won't be made up until later in the season. Cleveland makes two more trips to Minnesota -- July 18-20 and Sept. 16-18.

Either scenario would be better for the Twins. A rainout would give Justin Morneau and Delmon Young an extra day to recover. It would subtract a game that Joe Mauer, Tsuyoshi Nishioka and Kevin Slowey will miss while on the disabled list.

And, as a buddy of mine said, the Twins would sell a lot more of those $7 beers in July or September, than they will tonight.

Stay tuned...
