Can someone post lineups when they're available? I'm heading out of town in a few hours.

I have a bad feeling about this series.

Having reached a 2-game lead on the Whiteys to get their magic number down to 5, the Tigers have got to be smelling blood here.

That said, winning this lousy division should have been a lay-up for Detroit, and their wildly inconsistent play has been a big reason it's been a dogfight instead. So we shall see.

Wishful thinking and creative. That is a team that would be hard to beat.

I just hope that the Twins play well and don't make it easy for the Tigers.

Sounds like Diamond is pitching a gem.

Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Friday that it's "more than likely" that Samuel Deduno (eye) is done for the season.

Deduno left Thursday's start with left eye irritation and apparently isn't getting much better. Assuming he's done, he'll finish the year with a 4.44 ERA and 57/53 K/BB ratio over 79 innings in 15 starts. Anthony Swarzak or Brian Duensing will replace him Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Josh Willingham (shoulder) may miss the rest of the season.

Willingham is out of the lineup for the third straight game with a sprained ligament in his shoulder. He still felt a "pinch" while trying to swing the bat Friday, so the Twins will likely play things safe and let him heal.

Well how do you like that? The Twins help out the Pale Hose.

Don't like the chances of a series sweep with a Verlander/Walters matchup tomorrow....

Games are played on the field not on paper.
