The Careers (Twins Hunger Games)

Good evening tributes and citizens of Twins Territory. As the regular baseball season has started the last cuts of Twins players were made.

Carl Pavano beaned Scott Baker in the head eliminating him from the competition, after that, he moved onto Kyle Waldrop and finished off with Jason Marquis realizing he doesn't need a Mario to his Luigi.

Also eliminated at the mercy of their teammates Drew Butera, Casey Fein, JR Towles, Brian Dozier and Brian Dinkelman.  The career tributes (Mauer, Morneau and Pavano), guys who have been training their whole life for this competition took most of those guys out without even breaking a sweat, Brian Dozier didn't make it through one of the cold MInnesota nights when frost hit the ground.  Guess he didn't find shelter in time.

The cannons sounded and the faces of the departed flashed in the sky.

Happy Hunger Games (and Opening Day) and may the odds be EVER in your favor! Stay tuned to see who will survive the opening day of regular season.

Tune in to watch the Twins take on Baltimore tomorrow afternoon!
