Fair enough. I like Dozier being thrown into the two-spot for his first game for excitement purposes, but I would prefer Mauer there. Maybe not with Willingham and Morneau out, I guess.
I bet Carroll hits better down there, and I like he and Span still back-to-back.
I agree that Carroll hitting in front of Span is a nice combo. I'd prefer to see Mauer at the #2 with someone else at the #3 but option are limited. Gardy always likes a MI hitting 2nd but skills and not position should dictate that.

Joe C explained some of the lunacy in the lineup: Willingham has some sort of a virus (aka "flu" but not influenza, really) and Casilla has a sore shoulder from a dive in Seattle
Ok, so once again, the entirety of the Twins bench will consist of Drew Butera? Can we please drop a pitcher?

I would have bet the under.
I was strongly considering the under as well but decided to hope for a miracle. Didn't fully realize Willingham is out which makes the lineup worse than over 1/2 the AAA lineups in minors.
Now just hoping for 1 hit which is terribly sad. Has there ever been a MLB team so putrid that you just pray for 1 measly hit????
