    MINNEAPOLIS -- Workers are busy clearing Target Field of snow and ice left from the storm that blew through Minnesota and forced the postponement of last night's Marlins/Twins game. But it doesn't look like there will be any delays, and the first game should start on time at 2:10 p.m. (EST). The second game is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. (EST) but, unlike the first game, will not be televised.

     The field is relatively clear, save for patches of snow in right field that should be gone by game time.

     Still waiting for lineups but, just to give you some idea of how things look, here are a couple of photos I took on the way in:

     The top photo shows a worker clearning snow from the seats in right while the bottom photo is the icy backstop screen.
