I'm setting up in the press box and it's pretty chilly out there right now, temperature in the upper 40s but slowly warming up. The Puerto Rican national team is playing its first tune-up game for the upcoming World Baseball Classic, taking on the Twins at 1:05 p.m. Puerto Rico has exhibitions against the Rays on Wednesday and Red Sox on Thursday before heading to Puerto Rico, where the first round of play is taking place for Pool D (which also includes the Dominican Republic, Netherlands and Panama). Puerto Rico won its pool three years ago, advancing to the second round, where it was eliminated by Cuba with a 4-3 loss.
