Could someone post the lineups for me? Heading to a funeral, which isn't as unlike a Twins game as one might think.

long rain delay where Cole cannot come back would be great to see. Want to see how gardy/andy handle it.

Rain, blessed rain.

Maybe the Twins won't lose today after all.

Revere pads his lead in the cumulative hussle index (inf hits + sb's).

edit: also successfully-evaded rundowns.

His score now stands at 60

forgot rundowns

On the other hand, the Rangers are making a lot of errors. So anything can happen.

I wish Revere would start sliding feet first like Mauer. He is going to break something

How is it that the pitcher with the 'worst stuff' (not my evaluation, but seemingly team/media's view).....can be the only one who can seemingly pitch to this Rangers lineup???

Are you deducting points for base-running mistakes? I've seen him make several this year.

Did anyone hear how far Morneau's home run went yesterday? I know Duenslinger gave up a 463 footer to Moreland which was 3rd longest ever at Arlington. Morneau's couldn't have been far behind that

Rangers fielders must be allergic to rain ... good thing they don't see it very often.

Wouldnt you think that a tired 98 pitch DeVries (5IP 3h 1er 0bb 5k) is better than a fresh Gray......wrote this before Josh's HR also

Casey Fien has a 25% ground ball rate. He has surrendered 33 fly balls, in 22 IP and zero home runs... he has a ERA of 1.25, a FIP of 2.27, and xFIP of 4.44

DFA this son of a bitch and pitch Butera in his stead. If there isn't room for Blackburn on this roster, than there sure as hell isn't room for Gray.

Gray definitely solidified my vote for him as chairman of the #FreeAnthonySlama campaign. Chairman of said campaign gets a free trip to Rochester...
