Royals: SP James Shields

LF Gordon
1B Hosmer
DH Butler
C Perez
CF Cain
2B Tejada
3B Moustakas
RF Maxwell
SS Escobar

Twins: SP Scott Diamond

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

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Morneau... He's still here... OK Justin... You have two months before your contract expires... Let's start hitting some bombs.

2. Think about Butera... He's Gone... PTNBL or Cash coming our way!!!

3. Think about Willingham and Arcia... If Plouffe and Morneau are not hitting bombs... Who is supposed to hit bombs? Willingham and Arcia are the top two thoughts that jump into my head... Willingham is hurt and Arcia is in AAA. The Hammer will be back eventually... Could we see Arcia back sometime soon?

4. Think about Colabello... He could hit some bombs but he is probably trying to do too much right now. He's not in the lineup today... He had a pinch hit strikeout when we needed a run driven in from third yesterday. When you are a 55 year old power hitting rookie... It has to be tough... You are not a project... You have to produce right now. How can you not show up in Minnesota and not try to do too much. There is no time to watch him develop into something.

5. Think about Apartments... They are kinda stuck together in one building... They are not "Apart" at all... At least... I'm pretty sure I could hear my neighbor on the other side of the wall when I used to live in one.
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

It's on mlb.tv but why anyone would pay just to watch this game is beyond me.

If you already have a subscription that's one thing but twinsbaseball.com calls it a mlb.tv exclusive.

Oh, and if anyone is wondering, it isn't on the KC network either.

As I looked at the lineup my first thought was when was the last time the 7-9 hitters in a line-up were your outfielders.

Hermann airmails the cutoff man, everyone tags, double play out of order. 1 out, runners on 2nd and 3rd

Come on Hermann

Well Maxwell's RBI single puts the DP back in order. At the small cost of a run. Phew

Yuck. That has to be an interesting but depressing series of events. What Happened?

A ball that ends up going over the fence and you've never even suspect that it had a chance listening to Meathead on the radio.

Conspiracy Theory: Morneau purposefully didn't swing for the fences so he wouldn't be traded. Now he'll start belting homers every 10 at bats.

Hicksie inside-outed a ball into the left field corner, at the track, but Gordon caught it and got it back in quickly. Also Morneau was the guy on 3rd base so he wasn't tagging unless it got over the fence.

Cletus hit one to the 403 sign but it was caught.

Stupid work meeting getting the way of me listening to the game. I hate when that happens.

I have a immense dislike for Lorenzo Cain at this moment. How dare he steal that homerun from Plouffe. That is just rude.

I really think Plouffe has been getting some shoddy luck with the batted balls lately. He hit a few on the button in recent days that were caught, and now Cain robs him of a HR.

Danny is ragging on some of the Twins for shoddy defense like Herman missing the cutoff man three times today.

Wow. Bottom of the 7th and still on page 2?

Either people are actually working or the apathy factor has really kicked in -- which is completely understandable given the last 3 1/2 games.

Or is it the last 3 1/2 months?
