I didn't watch a ton of the Tigers series, but with this lineup, I will definitely be watching!! Good to see some of the other guys get to play!

I'm at this game and Wednesday's with my boss (an avid Jays fan), for the love of god the Twins need to win this series. Looking forward to seeing Scott D pitch an alternate home game.

twins need to get swept to lock up draft position#4 and with this line-up looks like they are going for it

No Justin? I was hoping they'd give him chance to hit his 20th home run. Maybe Laffey is a tough match up for him.

Calling shenanigans, no way a real major league team would intentionally start a lineup like this.

Wow, this reminds me of my one year in the little league minors - I always played the last three innings of the game (in right field) because everybody was guaranteed a chance to play:).

I know, but it just doesn't quite roll off the tongue the same.

This lineup doesn't deserve more than a random flip of the remote. Baltimore-TB is on!

C'mon, who knows if we'll have the opportunity to watch Chris Hermann and the Drewster bat back to back ever again.

Hey, did somebody put Capps in there when I wasn't looking? A closer giving up a home run to tie the game with one out to go?

Buterrible bats for himself and promptly pops out.

It's in the team's best interest to lose. I'm not shedding any years over a blown save.

I'm actually more upset that Mauer had such a lousy game. The batting race is all but over.

Meanwhile, Tigers clinch. Didn't look fabulous doing so (Benoit is a disaster right now) but they managed to pull it out.

Another loss that can clearly be pinned on Nishioka. :rolleyes:

Whoops. I got so wrapped up in working on a TD project that I completely forgot about the game.

Didn't watch much of this one. Was far more interested in the deciding game in the Lynx-Storm series.

Now there's a local team that knows how to gut out a playoff series win.
