I appreciate the effort on these writeups, but is there a way to get the actual lineup card here?

I run a Pick the Stick league here at work and those are really helpful, as I usually find the lineups here before anywhere else.

Brock Beauchamp
07-17-2012, 03:54 PM
Sure, here you go:

Twins:
Span CF
Revere RF
Mauer C
Willingham LF
Morneau 1B
Plouffe 3B
Doumit DH
Dozier SS
Carroll 2B
(Deduno P)

Orioles:
Markakis RF
Hardy SS
Thome DH
Jones CF
Wieters C
Reynolds 1B
Davis LF
Betemit 3B
Flaherty 2B
(Britton P)

Brock Beauchamp

I usually try to get the lineup posted three hours before game time. If you don't see it right off the bat, it will probably be coming shortly.

Matt Capps reported feeling lingering soreness Tuesday in his right shoulder and will see team doctors.

Capps just returned from the 15-day disabled list but may need to go back. The Twins will continue (http://www.twinsdaily.com/#) to give save chances to Glen Perkins and Jared Burton. Capps can no longer be considered a valuable trade chip for the Minnesota front office.

No, I still don't get it, but it is true! Twins placed RHP Matt Capps on the 15-day disabled (http://www.twinsdaily.com/#) list with right rotator cuff irritation.

Capps made just two appearances since returning from the DL, and he's headed back there after feeling more soreness in his appearance Monday. An MRI will likely be performed before more is known about how long he'll be sidelined. Obviously, he's no longer an option to be moved before the trade deadline. The Twins will continue (http://www.twinsdaily.com/#) to give save chances to Glen Perkins and Jared Burton.

Aside from the unattributed quote, this is bad news for the Twins on multiple levels. Hopefully he will recover before the season is over and can be put on the waiver list and be traded to whatever team claims him.

Look at the one bright side - at least this time they didn't wait 5 days to make a decision on whether or not to DL the guy, thus shorthanding the roster.

At this rate, Deduno will exceed 100 pitches sometime in the 4th inning. If the Twins are far behind tonight, I would like to see Butera on the mound so the bullpen can rest.

If Deduno could actually locate his pitches, he might have a future. As it is now, his guess is as good as ours to where the ball is going. I think it has to do with his follow through more than anything. It is inconsistent to say the least.

IdahoPilgrim

To actually talk about the game for a change, Deduno has settled down nicely since that first inning. Too bad he's got his pitch count up into the 80s. I must admit I didn't expect this good a start from him. Not lights out spectacular, but he's getting the job done - keeping the score down and giving the hitters a chance.

minn55441
07-17-2012, 10:43 PM
Perkins has plenty of trade value, but probably not as a closer. With only 6 career saves, I would not call him proven. I can't imagine a club in contention turning to a guy with only 4 saves on the year as their closer for the playoff race.

It's the burly guys with gloves that are too stupid to recognize when a ball is still in play, they're as likely to hurt the home team.
