Game-time forecast: Um, I don't know but will check if anyone cares.

PALE HOSE:
SP, Sale

Adam Eaton CF
Alexei Ramirez SS
Jose Abreu DH
Dayan Viciedo RF
Paul Konerko 1B
Conor Gillaspie 3B
Tyler Flowers C
Alejandro De Aza LF
Gordon Beckham 2B

TWINS:
SP, Darnell

Danny Santana CF
Brian Dozier 2B
Trevor Plouffe 3B
Chris Colabello 1B
Josh Willingham LF
Oswaldo Arcia RF
Kurt Suzuki C
Eduardo Nunez DH
Eduardo Escobar SS

----------------------------

Five things to think about:

1. Brian's not able to think today, so you are stuck with me. I can't even come near His Witty-ness, so I won't even try.

2. You all who read and participate here have plenty to say, so let us know your thoughts below. I know I don't have to ask as you will do so anyway. And that's good. Really good. It's what we want you to do. It's what we're here for.

3. Getting used to a fancy new website. We old timers may take some time to figure things out. So don't expect to see Chief for at least a week. And I'm one to talk. I myself couldn't log on, so thanks to Brock coming to my rescue, I'm here long enough to post this thread then back to work. It's a concert night.

4. Sale v Darnell. I'm just gonna hold my breath and hope for something good.

5. I'm thinking about work. I have to get back to it. It's your turn now. Go back to #2 above and participate!

Congrats, ChiTown, on posting your very first game thread on the new site.

 

I hope that we can have a "WINNAH"! at the end of it.

You know your team is a mess when Eduardo Nunez is your DH.

 

Some people insist this team has improved itself this year, but it's hard to believe it when you look at this lineup.

Hughes is an upgrade, I'll grant that. Santana probably is, though it's still a pretty small sample size. Outside of those two, it's tough to find any new player who is an improvement, and will be here next year (I don't believe Suzuki will).

Nice facelift TD. I can't think of a game where the Twins would be a bigger underdog at home. But you never know in baseball.

I predict that today will be the low ebb for the Twins this year.

Well, Howard Sinker finally called for Gardenhire to be released as manager today:

 

http://www.startribu.../268719462.html

 

 

It's a pretty low ebb.  Plus they had a team meeting last night .... called by Gardy ... sounds like the 1st all year.

 

Got to be getting near the nadir.

According to the first page, I had 4 game threads to choose from. Decisions...

 

Also can everyone see that I have three warnings under my avi? I have been naughty.

I was going to comment on Howard's column. I think it is time to decide if Gardy is part of the future. I don't think so.

Sinker nailed it.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?
