    Twins vs White Sox, 09-15-2012, 12:10pm

    Lineups TBA. Someone, please post them for me, as I'm leaving for the game soon.

    This is my absolute dream match-up. Pure entertainment watching these two guys throw.

    And it's quite possible that we may see two 10-walk no-hitters today.

    I am not sure if what I saw was official, as ESPN sometimes makes a mistake. But let's put it this way, Butera is STILL in the damn lineup (FYI, Chris Herrmann has hit lefties surprisingly well) and Escobar is batting second instead of Mastro. Escobar is a middle infielder, you see, so . . . I swear if he were playing third and Plouffe playing second, Plouffe would be batting second . . .

    I think this is theTwins line-up:

    Deduno pitching

    Revere, B, CF .299
    Escobar, E, 2B .213
    Willingham, J, LF .259
    Morneau, J, 1B .280
    Plouffe, T, 3B .234
    Parmelee, C, DH .250
    Mastroianni, D, RF .253
    Butera, D, C .208
    Florimon, P, SS .241




    Have to go find the White Sox - but I did see them score already.

    As it stands, if Liriano gives up no more baserunners, it will be Escobar he would face to capture his second no hitter.

    Liriano is looking pretty good. He's going to mess up my Over-Under bet of "4" on the game (hours)

    Second No-No?

    Is there any limit to how badly the Twins can play?

    I saw one earlier this year in Anaheim -- not a pretty sight.

    This suddenly got a lot more fun.

    Great for Plouffe to go deep again.

    Bert & Dick were talking about next year's MI. They indicated they thought two light hitting middle infielders would be fine if they had productivity from 3rd (Plouffe) and the OF. I agree, especially if the light hitting guys can really field. So far I'm not seeing it from Florimon, who has hit acceptably if he was a defensive wizard, but he's not. Too soon to tell on Escobar. I'll throw this out to see if the Chief is around. If they want their best defensive middle infielder who can steal bases, Casilla is the best option.

    9 times out of 10, Span pulls up on AJs drive and plays that one off the wall for a bases-clearing 2-bagger. Way to go, Revere.

    Are the Sox sending a message by beating the Twins with Liriano and Crain? Is anyone in the Twins' front office listening?

    Don't start in on the Chief-needle already, too early in the day.

    The White Sox are doing great with Beckham (240) and Ramirez (270) at the 8 and 9 spots in the order. Casilla (222) would work if one of the other 3 guys could reliably hit close to 270, don't see it from either of the newcomers.

    Believe me, I get the message,
    I bet AJ likely had a hand in sending it,
    doubt if the Twins FO is receiving it.

    And now Orlando Hudson scores an insurance run, adding insult to injury.

    Hammer time? It would be great to tie this one up.
