Twins: SP Kevin Correia

2B Dozier
C Herrmann
1B Morneau
RF Doumit
3B Plouffe
LF Thomas
DH Colabello
CF Hicks
SS Florimon

Mariners: Iwakuma

SS Miller
2B Franklin
LF Ibanez
DH Morales
3B Seager
1B Smoak
RF Saunders
C Zunino
CF Ackley

Things to think about for tonight's game:

1. Think about Chris Colabello... He is due for a big game. He's the guy on the roster who really needs to have a big game. Maybe not tonight but he needs one soon.

2. Think Iwakuma... I discovered this guy... I had no idea who he was last year. I watched him throw a game and I said to myself... I don't care what his stats say... He can throw... I've said that about a lot of people and missed so I'm happy to say that I got it right on this guy... He's good.

3. Think about the Seattle lineup... It's not like they are tearing the cover off the ball but the lineup is full of guys who were high rated prospects when younger... players who just haven't taken the next step... Smoak was supposed to be a superstar... So was Ackley. Its not like they haven't tried to build an offense.

4. Think about the lateness of this thread... Sorry I was late to put it together. It's been a busy day at work.

5. Think about ZZ Top... In 1975 they produced the Classic Tune "Tush"... In 1983 they produced the Classic Tune "Legs"... To keep things in order... In 1991... They should have come up with a song called "Feet"... They didn't.

Work... Schmerk. Get your priorities together.

On another note: The Twins will have their hands full the next few days with Iwakuma and King Felix.

I went to the tattoo parlor... Sat down and asked him for tattoo of me.

He said: where do you want it?

I said: Make it actual size.

It cost $180 dollars... I have a tattoo over my entire body and nobody can tell.

Maybe you should just go with it, whether or not you understand it.

And the lips on your avatar are really freaky. I always think people look like their avatars. So I'm picturing you in real life wearing lipstick. But lipstick seems to be a theme around here.

It's not just yellow. The color is Interchange Yellow. It kinda changes hues in different light. Sometimes it looks greenish yellow, sometimes yellow yellow, sometimes golden. It's quite nice. As am I.

Don't know how they gave Doumit a hit on that play.

I sometimes wake up kinda greenish yellow myself.

It's not quite nice though. Not at all.
