    Game Thread: Indians@Twins 7/21 1:10PM

    Indians: SP Justin Masterson

    CF Stubbs
    SS Cabrera
    2B Kipnis
    DH Swisher
    C Santana
    1B Reynolds
    LF Brantley
    RF Raburn
    3B Aviles

    Twins: SP Scott Diamond

    2B Dozier
    C Herrmann
    DH Mauer
    1B Morneau
    RF Doumit
    3B Plouffe
    LF Thomas
    CF Hicks
    SS Florimon

    Things to think about today:

    1. Think about 4 Wins in a Row... If this was the ALCS Championship... We would be able to rest our starters while we wait to see who we face in the World Series.

    2. Think about Chris Herrmann... Batting #2 in the lineup... Not Just in the lineup... But... Placed With Priority in the lineup.

    3. Think about Doug Bernier... Still waiting for that chance to get some dirt on his new #17 Jersey.

    4. Think about 3-2... Two days in a row with that score. Why not make it 3 in a row.

    5. Think about Hypothetical Situations... OK... Now... Imagine a World without them.

    Herrmann has done well with the Twins this year. Masterson is tough, but the Twins have handled him somehow pretty often. I'm not surprised that Gardy moved him down. If the Twins sweep this series it would be a feather in their caps.

    If you haven't started trading barbs on twitter yet I think you're ok.

    3 lefties in a row. Don't often see that in a Gardy lineup.

    Five slow guys in a row. That's not on Gardy, but we do see it often. When you're not odds-on to score on a single followed by a double or a double followed by a single, you have to string together several successes to score a run. (Although Cleveland may give you four outs to do it.)

    Naw, you blocking her posts is the next step. Divorce is still a couple steps away.

    I just figured "let's be friends" is soon followed by "we should see other people."

    / I see dead people - Charles Nelson Reilly on YouTube for instance

    I'd unfriend her... To test the relationship.

    If she doesn't notice... Everything is good.
    If she notices... It was never meant to be... You've been duped for 30 years.

    Both my Sons are in the living room with me... Masterson just blows Mauer away with a 97MPH fastball...

    I turn to my 15 year old son and say... 97 MPH... Do you know how fast that is?

    My 15 Year old son says "I don't know"
    My 19 year old son is in College... He says "umm... The answer would be 97 MPH".

    College is paying off.

    Let's test that theory. Ask Joe College how far that baseball would travel in 60 minutes.

    Dozier... You shoulda stopped at 2nd...

    Florimon you should have thrown to first if Dozier doesn't stop at 2nd.

    Genetics is going to trump anything Collitch can do.
