    Game 60 - Twins vs Phightin' Phils - 6/12/12

    I highly encourage all of you to put on your Thome Is My Homey t-shirts right now. Today's Twins starting lineup brought to you by Joe Christensen:

    #Twins‬ vs. RH Kendrick: Span 8, Revere 9, Mauer 2, Willingham 7, Morneau 3, Doumit DH, Plouffe 5, Dozier 6, Carroll 4 (Blackburn P)


    By the way, in the past 14 days, Trevor Plouffe's .800 slugging percentage is the fourth-highest in baseball. In that time Plouffe (.371 BA) and Ben Revere (.370 BA) have been hotter than hell. I'm considering borrowing the line from Major League II "Black Hammer and White Lightening" when referring to them.

    Help me make this so.

    Agreed. It may be a reference to second favorite major league movie, but the "Black Hammer, White Lightning" was well played.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Love it. They say he needs his arm to be tired to pitch better. Why not let him go to 120 if hes pitching well?

    Plouffe!!!!!!!

    What has gotten into Plouffe lately? I love it. I was skeptical of Gardy leaving him in the lineup every night. But clearly this kid has some serious major league power.

    Okay Mauer, lets blow this game open with a double..

    not a double but got a hit. I'm so excited that this team is playing up to its potential. Mostly Plouffe, I have gotten so much grief for being a big Plouffe backer for the last 3 years. Happy I didn't lose hope or back off my opinion. hes making me look smart.

    There are a number of us Plouffetists here, including our founding member, Bark's Lounge.

    I would be nice to wear out the Phils starter and bullpen tonight so that they have a thin bullpen for the rest of this series.

    Well Kendrick has thrown 47 pitches but id be nice to take on another 2 runs and get him out of there

    Especially with Blanton going on Thursday. Might be tough to know Hammels out tomorrow....

    Do the Twins trade Valencia at the deadline? And do they get more for him than they got for, say, Delmon?
