    Game Thread: Twins@White Sox 9/16 7:10PM

    Twins: SP Liam Hendriks

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

    White Sox: Erik Johnson

    CF De Aza
    SS Ramirez
    3B Gillaspie
    1B Konerko
    DH Dunn
    LF Viciedo
    RF Danks
    2B Beckham
    C Anderson

    Things to Think About:

    1. Think about the White Sox... I can't start a game thread... Game One... Against the White Sox... Without stating how much I hate the White Sox... I want them punished.

    2. Think about Liam Hendriks... Will he pitch well... Will he struggle?? That's a good question... Let's find out.

    3. Think about Trevor Plouffe... Batting in the 3 spot... Moving up in the world.

    4. Think about Ron Gardenhire... 4 wins away from 1,000... 14 Games to go... Does he make it... It's not a given... that is for sure.

    5. Think about Lies... I was talking to a friend the other day and telling him one of my stories... He looked me in the eye and said "You're Lying". I responded with "Yes I am... But hear me out anyway".
    "9. Lipstick"

    "How can Canada produce Tie Domi and not have a better military"?

    "I noticed while robbing the First State Bank last night that if you go into the vault when nobody is looking... You can get away with it".

    I yearn for the day that no-hit utility infielders are permanently relegated to the bottom of the order where they belong.

    What? No Dozier? Glad I opted out of actually spending money and going to the game.

    Is that the Super-2 cutoff date when Rosario, Sano, and Buxton all join the team? (with Hicks thrown in for good measure)

    You should be able to trade some cookies for a ticket they'd be worth more.

    You could punish them with so many wins that they don't get as good a draft pick next June, but I think they are pretty close to locked in to their draft spot by now.

    Maybe Dozier is resting up so that he can look for an educated fan to party with after the game?

    But the bat handling, think of the bat handling.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Any GM will tell you the Super 2 is never a consideration.

    Actually I snuck into Terry Ryan's office to use the bathroom... He has a big calender on the wall. The Calender is marked with specific steps for the improvement of the franchise.

    It said... "June 14 2014... Step 9... Relegate utility infielders to 7th in the order".

    I guess a person could come up with Five Questions about just that one video. Such as, "is that one dancer in the front Olivia's grandma?"

    He needs a rest... He's facing a tough right hander... He got stuck in Chicago Traffic trying to find your place... He's got a sore throat. The dog ate his batting gloves and... Bert Blyleven said something mean about his Mississippi accent and he refuses to play.

    You'd think that itch would have turned into a full-fledged gangrenous sore by now in dire need of amputation.

    This is probably one of the things (lineup construction/ignoring platoons) that the organization should look for new management with new ideas.

    Hey I'm ready for a managerial change too, but that kind of name calling is out of bounds, buddy.
