    Game Thread: White Sox@Twins 8/17 6:10PM

    White Sox: SP Chris Sale

    Twins: SP Andrew Albers

    Things to Think About:

    1. Think about Albers... What else are you going to think about.

    2. Think about Albers... Two Starts on the Road and not a run given up in 17.1 Innings.

    3. Think about Albers... His first home start... Can he Keep it Going.

    4. Think about Ummm... How about Albers... He doesn't even have a picture under his name at ESPN.

    5. Think about God!!! The existence of God has been questioned by some and the discussion often revolves around Faith. For those who require something specific to fuel belief in a higher power... When you grab a Kleenex from the box... The next one pops up.

    Who else has the power to get that done?

    I'm on the road today... If someone would be so kind to post the Starting Lineup when they are announced it would be much appreciated.

    For whatever reason, the rotation is somehow interesting enough that twice in a row now I've been surprised to see that it's Albers's turn again. I know Pelfrey isn't good, and Correia has been marginal, but Gibson and Deduno keep the interest level up for me, and suddenly boom, it's Albers again. Hope he continues to impress.

    Now we know why KC was so interested in getting a 2B (Carroll) to finish the year--Tejada is suspended for 105 games.

    Maybe Tejada is the PTBNL.

    I hope you aren't implying that Albers is God. I wish God was a Minnesota sports fan, but he seems to enjoy toying with us in that area. How else do you explain the Vikings and the Twins?

    I am waiting to see Pilgrim's response before deciding how many days to ban Brian for trolling.

    I don't think Brian was implying that Albers was God; just that God is one who works in strange and mysterious ways. Albers is an example of that.

    That said, I say ban him for a week - just on general principal.

    Better yet - make him actually watch the game rather than spending half his time posting on the gamethread.

    But not the content of the conversation?

    While the Morneau absence is more interesting, why is Arcia on the bench again?

    Too risky. Can't shatter his confidence and have him have to face Sale.

    We should come up with a Game Thread tag line. I'll kick it off with "Come for the game, stay for the moobs." I'm sure someone will do better.

    Is this an actual hint that something is coming, or are you just shamelessly trying to push up page views for the site owners?

    Arcia has a wrist thing (plus a lefty on the mound), Morneau most likely it's just a lefty on the mound thing, plus getting Mauerzie out from behind the plate.

    But I could be wrong, so feel free to refresh often.

    "Oh, by the way, someone hit a home run, I think. Maybe."
