We'll see if these lineups are correct (found a new source):

With Butera in the lineup and Morneau going against a tough lefty, Twins might have a tough time generating offense tonight. Hopefully the good Frankie shows up.

Wait, who is the other hitter worse than Liriano?
And hey, Butera's WHIP and ERA are WAAAY better than Liriano's, so he's got that.

5. Plouffe 1B
6. Doumit DH
7. Dozier SS
8. Valencia 3B (I know he is in the minors, but Valencia is a solid option against LHP)

Interesting. They just said on the telecast that the opening home run Pittsburgh hit last night should have only been a ground rule double. Apparently (and they showed the rule) once it bounced off the fence it became a "bounding ball" which, if it goes out of play off a fielder, is only 2 bases.

Had trouble getting my proxy server working and missed the first half of the inning. Who scored?

Tonight would be a good time for Plouffe to hit a home run (or three).

Apparently Willingham didn't realize it had bounced off him and they couldn't see it from the dugout.

It's a little frustrating to see the Twins put two pitchers at the back of the lineup in tonight's game. Add in Morneau against a lefty and 1/3 of this lineup is entirely useless.

We all know the Pirates offense is inept but Liriano is looking pretty good out there tonight.

A fantastic plate appearance there by the greatest defensive catcher in the history of the game.
That's 2 hits and 1 walk in his last 25 trips to the plate, with a .250 OPS.
