Indians: SP Scott Kazmir

CF Bourn
RF Swisher
2B Kipnis
1B Santana
LF Brantley
SS Cabrera
DH Giambi
C Gomes
3B Aviles

Twins: SP Cole DeVries

CF Presley
2B Dozier
3B Plouffe
DH Doumit
LF Willingham
1B Colabello
RF Mastroianni
C Fryer
SS Florimon

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Led Zeppelin and Tool... The Indians are throwing Kazmir and DH'ing Giambi... These are baseball players not bad spellings of songs by Led Zeppelin and Tool.

2. Think about the Indians... This team is inches from the finish line... A possible playoff bound team from a city that hasn't been playoff bound for quite some time. Cleveland sounds like Minneapolis in that sense.

3. Think about Cole DeVries... Just trying to show something... Anything... Against a team that wants it.

4. Think about 1,000 Wins... 2 Wins needed... 2 games to go... GULP!!! Gardy has his back against the wall to reach 1,000 wins this year.

5. Think about the Rangers... The Baseball Rangers may not make the playoffs this year... When I was younger... I thought about being a forest ranger... However... I decided against it because... If I were a forest ranger... I would have no idea where to go to get away from it all.

Thank You ChiTown for having my back and starting a game thread for me. I deleted yours after I finished mine... I hope that was OK.

I knew it would be tight time wise with the game being moved forward and I appreciate the fill in.

lol ... oops ... glad you made it here! I actually tried to post a thread for you and failed miserably as I realize now that when I cut and pasted the past game thread title, I failed to change the date and time! Oh well ... better that anyway since you made it here on time! You set the best tone for these threads! :)

Well ... there's only one left! I can always cover for you ... but I can never channel you and your 'Think about ...' lists! They always seem better than the one before!

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm hoping to be able to participate in the last game thread of the year tomorrow. I can't today because I'll be working the football game.

North Dakota is hosting Montana State in Big Sky Conference football action today. Go UND!!!

If you add "un" to the end of UND it becomes the title of a Guess Who song I rather enjoy.

For the Twins... They Found a Mountain that was far too High... When they Found that they couldn't Fly... It was Too Late.

Been meaning to tell you all how much I've enjoyed your banter every game in yet another losing season. Keep the faith. Good times will return someday. In the meantime, please keep posting. Funniest stuff on the internets.

I'm still a big Gopher Fan from growing up in Minnesota. I've been waiting for a good year in Football for awhile.

Except Hockey... I had to divorce the Hockey Gophers and it's been an ugly divorce.

Now that you've jumped in the pool, keep going. We promise only to splash you a little. Well, I'll only splash you a little ... not sure about Chief and Ash. :)

Oops... Previous post was meant to reply to RiverBrian, but I think you're all sharp enuf to figure it out.

And thanks, too, to you Chitown for your invite, as well. As an old English major and newspaper editor, I may be able to help you out with additional thesaurus entries for "Twins suck."

Now I've got to get back to work. (My wife and I own a clothing store in South Dakota.) What's the over-under on Devries holding the 0-0 tie through the rain delay?

Toodles!

I feel sorry for the Rangers. They are winning today but seem unlikely to get any help from the Twins.

I can't be here tomorrow so I also want to tell everyone how much I enjoy reading through the game threads even though I don't post on them too often.

And a BIG shout out to RB for the entertaining intros. Even when I don't skim the thread I almost always check out his intro -- pretty much assures a chuckle or two.

Obviously Joe Nathan is better suited to the closer's role than to being a Twins cheerleader.

Here is an article about players and a manager who don't want to play for the Mariners because the team is so bad. I suspect that this also applies to the Twins to some extent.

Guess Who songs should be referenced only when Albers pitches, thankyou for keeping the Canadian references to the barest of minimums.

Thanks Glunn.

Now, can someone tell me if this game is actually on somewhere?

My Fox station has Pirates/Reds (good for the Pirates!) but of course, I'm actually watching the Hawkeyes & Goofers anyway.
