    Game Thread: A's@Twins 9/11 7:10PM

    A's: SP Sonny Gray

    CF Crisp
    3B Donaldson
    SS Lowrie
    RF Moss
    LF Cespedes
    1B Barton
    DH Smith
    C Vogt
    2B Sogard

    Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

    CF Presley
    3B Escobar
    2B Dozier
    RF Arcia
    DH Plouffe
    LF Willingham
    1B Parmelee
    C Herrmann
    SS Florimon

    Things to Think about:

    1. Think about Sonny Gray... The Kid has been good with a 2.51 ERA since coming up from the farm recently. Kids that start good tend to stutter after awhile and maybe he will stutter tonight. I'm not sure I'd want a name like Sonny Gray... The two names seemed opposed to each other. He's like a conflicted sky. He's been Sonny so far... Let's make him Gray tonight.

    2. Think about Eduardo Escobar... Batting 2nd and manning the 3B Spot... Been awhile since we seen him... For his sake... I hope he does well.

    3. Think about Alex Presley... He is kicking Justin Morneau's rear end so far... Clearly we have won this trade with Pittsburgh. Morneau is 6 for 27 with only 1 extra base hit (a double). Presley... He's been 14 for 40... (2 doubles and 1 Dinger). We fleeced them Pirates... Raise that Jolly Roger!!!

    4. Think about Dozier and the Hammer and the Plouffe... When game 162 concludes... Who will be the home run leader on the Twins. Dozier has 17 and that ties him with Justin Morneau for the team lead... Willingham and Plouffe have 14 bombs. Or will Arcia or Colabello get insanely hot and blow past the field. What were the odds at the beginning of the year that Dozier would be the home run leader. 100 to 1? 200 to 1? Dozier... Home Run Leader... is quite possible.

    5. Think about Taxes... A Fine is a tax for doing wrong... A Tax is a fine for doing well.

    More damn kids hockey again tonight!Once more relegated to the loneliness of the archived game on MLBTV.

    Enjoy the game thread...and hopefully the game too.



    Dear hockey gods, please forgive me for cursing the game in vain.

    On cue, Morneau 4 for 5 with a double today. Hope your post has the same effect on Presley tonight.

    Jolly Roger alternative:
    Sadly, it seems unlikely that the affable, squishy-looking fellows on the Twins logo will be gracing the tails of any USN aircraft any time soon...

    All right sports fans, the Twins march to .500 continues -- 18 wins in the last 19 games will do it.

    Another win tonight would be very nice. Today was a tough day and a win would help.
