It is game one of a weekend series with the lowly Twins. This should be easy...right?

It's a new day, a new series and a new team to beat up on. This will be the last series before the rosters expand so expect all kinds of craziness from the front office.

JUST IN: Orioles send the Oriole Bird to Norfolk, recall Rip Tide from Triple-A.

Ok, maybe things won't get that weird but it's not too far off from what we have come to expect from Dan Duquette. He likes to maximize his roster and the Orioles Bird has looked tired recently. That flag doesn't wave itself and there have been reports of arthritic fingers from all that voodoo he puts on the ball before games.

Anyway, the Yankees and Blue Jays play one another tonight. It is a matchup of lefties as Capuano and Buehrle face off. At this point, most of us have written off Toronto. So, go Canada. Beat those Yankees.
