Durbin not traveling today

J.D. Durbin won't make the trip to Tampa today. Manager Ron Gardenhire said yesterday he would, but Rick Anderson changed things up and Durbin is staying back.

The Twins will face Yankees righthander Jeff Karstens tonight in Tampa.

A pre-Tampa post

Not too much going on the in the clubhouse this morning. Justin Morneau was lamenting the performance of his Canucks last night, Pat Neshek read USA Today from front to back, and bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek spent some time teasing Luis Castillo.

All pretty normal events before things got going at 9:30 a.m. for those who aren't making the trip to Tampa. I'm heading out this afternoon to watch Carlos Silva take on the Yankees, and I'll try to give you some updates as the day progresses ...
