Astros looking to start strong against Pineda, Twins

Twins third baseman Marwin Gonzalez faced all the requisite questions in his return to Houston on Monday and, befitting his personality, answered most every query with a stoic, measured tone.

But when the Astros welcomed Gonzalez back home with a pregame tribute video covering the first seven seasons of his career, it was clear that Gonzalez was touched by the gesture. When the Twins and Astros resume their three-game series Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, it will be business as usual for both sides. But the opener featured an outpouring of respect and admiration from both sides, with Gonzalez pleased to see his former teammates once again.

"I love them. It feels good," Gonzalez said of the reunion. "We have been talking; we haven't lost that. We've been talking pretty much every day so it's nothing new. It's good to see their faces though. I'm glad that I got to see them and I'm going to be here three days."
