White Sox: SP Andre Reinzo

LF De Aza
2B Beckham
SS Ramirez
DH Dunn
1B Konerko
RF Garcia
3B Gillaspie
C Phegley
CF Danks

Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

2B Dozier
C Mauer
1B Morneau
DH Willingham
LF Arcia
3B Plouffe
RF Colabello
CF Thomas
SS Florimon

Things to Think About:

1. Hatred... I said this when we played them in Chicago... I'll Say it again... I hate the White Sox and it's almost unhealthy.

2. Think about Starting Pitching... Deduno dead arm? Gibson Innings Limit? How do you make a shaky rotation shakier. The cloud of dead arm and innings limit ought to do it.

3. Think about Kirby Puckett... Haven't thought about Kirby in awhile. He was from Chicago. He's worth a thought or two... every once in awhile.

4. Think about Clete Thomas... He's still out there... playing every day in CF.

5. Think about wrong numbers... I called a wrong number today... The lady answered and told me I had called the wrong number... I was shocked and I fumbled for some words and basically said I'm sorry. Than I got hold of the right number called it and nobody answered. This led to a question... How come... Every time you call a wrong number... Somebody answers... why is that?

I was thinking about Kirby on Monday night as I looked at his statue walking through the plaza at Target Field after the game.
But then I was interrupted by a stripper from Rick's Cabaret handing out free admission coupons, which I thought Kirby would have appreciated.

Alright, I remember Kirby like it was yesterday. Good times. I am feeling happy and optimistic.

4. Think about Clete Thomas... He's still out there... playing every day in CF.

Alas, I will not be adding to the game thread tonight as I am off to meet a friend for dinner (Thai food) then to see Elysium. I hope it's good.

Personally I think we need to stop making these types of value judgments - numbers should not be labelled "right" or "wrong" - every phone number is special in its own unique and wonderful way.

With that, I also am out of here - going to the rookie league team just up the road.

Gotta give it more time, Bark. I fully agree with your visual sentiments that we're in full Twins Binge and Purge-atory at the moment, but Clete, Wilkin and the other suspects won't be around too much more in about 2 weeks.

Well one's a forgone conclusion, here's hoping the Thai and Elysium make up for it.

Are you sure? According to my Dungeons & Dragons Handbook it should. I rolled a 20.

Umm... You need to put a 6. In front of that.

Of course with Canadian Metrics... A 5.97 would suffice.

I see now that the double play plan wasn't well thought out.
