    Good to see Morneau back in the lineup. Lets hope he brings a spark back to the offense.

    Not gonna lie, I like Dozier hitting 5th or 6th (aside from the obvious fact that Mauer should be batting second).

    Gave up on Plouffe at 3rd, or are they looking for better infield defense? Or just a day off for the other guys?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Best lineup (on paper anyway) we've seen in 2-3 weeks. Will this translate to runs.... not holding my breath.

    I really don't care where he plays, but I hope he gets regular at bats for a bit.

    The odds of a sweep are pretty good (2 game series), but the odds aren't in the Twins' favor.

    I like our chances of winning tomorrow, but not tonight. Hopefully Blackie can't cobble together a good outing.

    I would go the other way - I'm more worried about Fister than Porcello. Besides, maybe Blackburn will have a surprise good outing. What's that saying about the blind squirrel and the nut?

    So Komatsu (a hitter who should not be hitting higher than 8th - like Mastroianni last night) leads off today. Why? Because he is playing CF and that is where the CF has to start according the manager of the millennium?

    Gardy doesn't like to screw up the lineup continuity I guess, even though the Twins have used about 40 different lineups. Who knows.

    He does have a .333 OBP. The only higher in the lineup are Willingham (who you want clean-up) and Mauer (who you want 2nd or 3rd).

    There are at least 4 hitters in the lineup that "should not be hitting higher than 8th." Do you propose Gardy double-fill the 8 and 9 spots, and leave 1 and 2 open?

    There are legitimate things to question Gardy about. This isn't one of them.

    Who else do you propose leading off in such a situation? Komatsu and Mastroianni are good OBP guys. Unless you suppose moving Mauer there, I am not sure what else to do!

    So far at least, Dozier appears to be able to stay at SS, and hasn't been overwhelmed by MLB pitching. Nice to see.

    I know it's still early, but I am liking Dozier more and more.
