Startribune.com digital sports editor Howard Sinker used to cover the Twins and now shares season tickets with friends in Section 219 of Target Field. He blogs about baseball from the perspective of a long-time fan who loves the game, doesn’t always believe the hype and likes hearing what others think. Howard sometimes talks about sports with Cathy Wurzer on MPR's Morning Edition.
I'm looking for glimmers of hope during spring training, and didn't see anything during the parts of Tuesday night's 11-3 loss to Tampa Bay that I tried to watch. I kept turning away, to be honest, and you can find the sordid details of Vance Worley's performance and more elsewhere on the web.
This pretty much sums up spring for me:

But in an attempt to find something hopeful, I offer you this, from the Twitpic account of @CorkGaines:
We know the Bear can hit, as witnessed during the Saturday afternoon home-run hitting contests at Target Field.
But the defense? Who knew?
Maybe Trevor Plouffe should be worried?
