Now, this lineup should produce runs and is easily their best lineup against a RHP. Watch, we'll struggle to score 2 runs tonight thought -- just been that sort of season. Of course, I hope not.

Parmelee is on this team? Really? 4 at bats in nearly 2 weeks.

If the Twins want to win this series, they had better win tonight. The Sale-Blackburn matchup isn't very appealing for the Twins tomorrow afternoon. The Twins have owned Floyd for awhile now, so I hope that continues. Hendriks needs to start producing and getting his first victory might take some pressure off.

I've been thinking that Doumit batting 7th is the best spot for him. The last 'slugger' before our two light hitting middle IF guys -- and he clogs up the base paths. Gives him 'permission' to swing away, hard.

Agree. Tomorrow is much more ominous. A Hendricks win begins with 1st pitch strikes at better than 50%. This is the key stat to victory I'll be watching for tonight.

Against a pitcher like Sale would be the perfect time to yank Morneausie in favor of any right-handed hitting warm body. *cough* Valenshia *cough*

That cough is contagious, spreading thread to thread quickly.

Like most of the Twins rotation, Hendriks can't miss bats... And if guys who can't miss bats aren't throwing first-pitch strikes, it's pretty much a guaranteed loss.

I was thinking more like 4 intentional walks... With the last 15 AB's looking like that why even let Floyd pitch to baby Jesus?!

Thats kind of my logic when looking at tomorrows matchup with Sale. Everyone needs to implode from time to time. Dickeys last start. I think we will get to Sale but will Blackburn do enough to hold of the Soxs?

Going out on a limb here, but I'm thinking your glass is always half-full, sorry but this one is a No-Sale, unless there's no Sale pitching. Blackie's luck is due to run out sooner than Sale's is.

There should be a roster move today sending down mastroanni or parmelee and calling up ramirez or Valencia..... Or both! Mastro is useless right now and parmelee needs the regular at bats. This way our lineup could be... Span-CF Carroll-2B Mauer-1B Willingham-LF plouffe-3B doumit-C Valencia-DH ramirez-RF dozier-SS Crazy I know but that would help a little bit against a top lefty...

Only 4 of those previous 15 AB resulted in more than one base, so why would they IBB Mauer? Most likely only gets a single.
