    Game Thread: Twins@White Sox 9/18 1:10PM

    Twins: SP Scott Diamond

    CF Presley
    2B Dozier
    3B Plouffe
    LF Arcia
    DH Doumit
    1B Colabello
    RF Thomas
    SS Escobar
    C Fryer

    White Sox: SP John Danks

    Lineup not out... I hope they all get out... Once it comes out.

    Things to Think About:

    1. Think About Eric Fryer... It's nice that he's getting a start. He hit a home run the other night... He probably thought that would spring board himself into a start the next night... That didn't happen... He had to wait until getaway day.

    2. Think about Scott Diamond... He gave us some high hope last year... Now no one knows what he is going to give us. Good Luck Scott... Go Get Em... Pulling for ya.

    3. Think about Oswaldo Arcia... I wonder if he likes LF or RF better. It's a lame thought I know... But... It's early in the day... And I'm struggling to come up with baseball thoughts against the White Sox this September Pennant Chaseless Morning.

    4. Think about... (INSERT THOUGHT HERE)

    5. Think about Signs... Signs Signs everywhere a Sign... Blocking up the scenery... A couple years ago... There was an employee strike at the sign company. They were picketing in front of the company carrying signs... Since they were on strike... There was nothing printed on the signs.
    A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

    Chicago Lineup

    De Aza, CF
    Ramirez, SS
    Viciedo, LF
    Konerko, 1B
    Dunn, DH
    Semien, 3B
    Danks, RF
    Phegley, C
    Garcia, 2B

    Danks, SP

    That Danks is going to be a busy guy - starting pitcher and he has to hustle out to RF when the ball is hit.

    4. Think about...if a game is played in September by two teams who are already eliminated, and nobody cares about the outcome, does it still count?

    OK, one thought. From here on out I want to see good results from the players who matter going forward. RBI single by Arcia in the first inning definitely qualifies.

    Arica gets a hit to score a run.

    Provus credited Arcia with "not trying to do too much" on that hit.

    I want a job where I can be congratulated for not trying to do too much.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Well ... better than swinging for the hills on a high fast ball and missing.

    'Lay off the high ones.'

    'I like the high ones.'

    'Mule.'

    'Nag.'

    That inning by Diamond is another that qualifies.

    Should it scare me that I know that movie just from 4 lines? I definitely need a life.

    As long as we're going movie quotes, here's one that I'm reminded of right now (regarding Danks):

    "He's worried! You cut him! You hurt him! You see? You see? He's not a machine, he's a man!"

    Do I have this right? After two (2!) innings, seven of the nine Twins' starters have a hit? Four runs and seven hits is more than a game's worth!

    If he dies, he dies.

    Four runs, four RBI on four singles.

    Looks like it's back to 2006. We're playing piranha ball again now?
