Is it time to be a bit worried about Dozier's back?

If TJ surgery hasn't already been scheduled, I think he will be okay to play soon.

The surgeon removed a herniated disc, but is day-to-day on sewing him back up.

Here's a fun exercise, take the days lineup and rearrange it without biases, basically put a few table setters at the top and then rank the next best 7 starting with number three.

1. Santana SS 1. Santana
2. Fuld CF 2. Escobar
3. Mauer 1B 3. Willingham
4. Willingham LF 4. Morales
5. Morales DH 5. Arica
6. Arcia RF 6. Mauer
7. Plouffe 3B 7. Plouffe
8. Fryer C 8. Fryer
9. Escobar 2B 9. Fuld

Fuld's back. Good to have a centerfielder in the lineup. Without one of those, there's too much chance of balls landing between LF and RF and rolling all the way to the wall.

So, when Dozier does come back, can we please just do a platoon with Plouffe/Escobar at 3B? Assuming no else goes down and we need another backup CF. That's gotta happen, right?

Torii gets some good carom action in the LF corner. Somewhat of a Slow Mule Race to see whether Willingham gets to it in time to prevent the triple. Josh wins this time.

Not a real mystery to the batters as yet. Four swings. No misses, though one was a nubber.

/ JD Martinez however was a different story, with two bad swings, and a nice called strike perhaps aided by Fryer.

Just think how much Mauer would be struggling if he didn't have fresh legs.

What? Too controversial? He got leg cramps making love to his wife. I assume that is why he sat out yesterday. And assume he is in today because he didn't aggravate the condition.


Here's some controversy.

Nice job Sam-well. Come back from 2-0 to get the big K.

You think it's easy lugging all that cash to the bank every night after the game?

Messy but he only used 12 pitches in the inning.

Not to mention hauling twin babies around. Those girls are getting bigger, you know.

If Arcia let go of the bat on the back swing, it would really hurt.

Thank heaven for Willinghams' above average speed.

EDIT: Oh, and good job coming back from 0-2 and getting the SF, Trevor.
