Hey, I recognize that lineup! Wonder how often they've gone even two-straight games with identical fielding and batting order over the last...long while.

I predict at least one team won't score as many runs tonight as last night....very brave prediction, I know.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

It's about time Parmelee and Casilla got some at bats. Dozier has just been terrible, so it wouldn't hurt to give Casilla a few starts and have Carroll move to SS. I wish they'd DH Parmelee instead of Doumit in some games.

Here's a fun tool for answering that question (and any other question you might have about this year's lineup trends): http://www.baseball-...ng-orders.shtml

Thome singles to shallow right, two runs score. I assume no throw to the plate was attempted by Revere.

That would be my guess - they had Manship up pretty quickly, as if they'd told him ahead of time to be ready. They must have seen something during pregame warmup that had them concerned.

Trainer came out, Walter's coming out. Weird he wasn't scratched from the beginning, he hasn't thrown that many pitches. They had to have been monitoring him.

He's got to be injured or ill. You wouldn't pull him in the first inning even if he did give up a few runs unless that was the case.

I've got the video of his triple he hit while a Twin - I still watch it; it's a classic.

Was the medical staff alerted to wheel out the oxygen bottle to meet him at third, for when he eventually arrived?
