This lineup actually has a chance to win. Great to see 4 healthier bodies back, 1 body back on the bench where he belongs, 6 straight lefty bats and 8 of 9 in the order and Gardy listening to the request to experiment with Revere in LF. This one might be worth watching.

LOVE Ben Revere in LF, which w/Aaron Hicks on horizon could be Ben's future position....tho he's outstanding himself as a CF.

Oh my god, finally Ben Revere is back where he belongs. It's a good day. Some Revere-Span-Hicks action next year at times would be nice (Willingham DH/day off).

Peavy is looking like a good investment for the White Sox.

It's probably not fair to vote now that we're down 8-2 in the 6th, is it...? Sadly, I'd vote the same now as I would have prior to the game. We're really going to end it almost as ugly as we began it, I think.

Next poll topic: Can the Twins be Yankee Killers next week? :s-bluecap:

Tell me again why I torture myself by watching this?

Honestly, I didn't think I was a masochist.

if we're fielding the best lineup vs a contender, as Gardy says, then why no Willingham?
As of the last 10 yrs.....Gardy talks outta both sides of his mouth

I think that "fielding the best line-up against a contender" thing actually matters if he fields his best line-up against Detroit and NYY. On the other hand, the "Twins best line-up" probably doesn't matter under any circumstances.

Well I flipped away to watch the Vikings pee all over themselves. I should have just turned my TV off and gone outside.
