    Travel day line up?

    So players get neither too little nor too much playing time?

    Otherwise, if you're checking to see if the infielders can handle it, i guess you got keep tryin' 'em to see if they learned anything since last time?

    Only graspin' at straws...

    Day after night as well, as is his custom. And were it not for Parmelee in right, it would look to me like Gardenhire going all in on righties vs. lefty, which is not his usual m.o.

    He also left Mauer in, where he could have let Colabello get a crack at it. (As was postulated he might before the game in a Colabello last chance thread, i think) but Mauer also can use the work, and is one of those batters rightly immune to the righties vs. lefty logic.

    I'm always a bit surprised by how many switch hitters we have too...
