    Wow, look at that lineup. I think Gardy may have been replicated by alien pod people.

    Is this start for Parmelee out of sympathy? Will he get sent down after the game to make room for Morneau, or will they actually go down to 12 pitchers? Since they'll be in an NL park this weekend, you'd think that the Twins would want the bench flexibility, but then again ...

    No Span? Curious.

    Might as well give Span a rest - he's started all but 1 game this season, and he's hitting .205 over the last 10 games.

    Updating a previous item, Denard Span is out Tuesday due to a sore hamstring.

    It's nothing major and Span is available off the bench. Consider him day-to-day for now.

    Who is twirling for the Tribe? I'm wondering if it's a lefty. Also, if Gardy prefers Carroll at third and Casilla at second (as they are aligned today) why has Casilla played third when he has replaced Plouffe?

    So in his pre-game comments Gardy doesn't see how they can go down to 12 pitchers.

    Great, to interleague ball with a weak bench and bloated staff. Should work great.

    Wow...my glass-half-full outlook sees a good mix of OBP/speedy gonzaleses and some power bats.

    I'm more concerned with Marquis not giving up 12 hits and 6 runs in 5 innings.

    Dozier hitting 5th? Sounds like runs! This team is desperate for at least one more RH power bat.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    What a mess. 13 pitchers and no end in sight? I've been thru some tough times as a Twins fan but this is the worst.

    Good thing that the Twins can only hit into one DP per inning, because if they could do it more they would.

    It's a shame mastro didnt lead off the game with a single so they'd have a chance at a GDP in every inning.
