Twins Lineup:
Joe Benson CF
Jamey Carroll 3B
Joe Mauer DH
Josh Willingham LF
Justin Morneau 1B
Ryan Doumit C
Wilkin Ramirez RF
Brian Dozier 2B
Ray Olmedo SS

Vance Worley SP

Pirates Lineup:
CF Presley, SS Mercer, RF Snider, DH Sands, 1B Jones, 3B Hague, C Sanchez, LF Pie, 2B Hernandez. RHP McPherson.

Name the 3-4 MLBers in that lineup? (Pressley and former Twins Garrett Jones?)

5 J's to start of the lineup? Seems like bad luck to me.

One or two at most, then switch to beer.

Don't you think that his value might go a lot higher as the trade deadline approaches?

I'm about to look elsewhere on the site for more discussion about him, but I was just wondering what the chances are of Wilkin Ramirez getting the 4th outfielder slot? I don't know a lot about him but he seems like a guy who should be given a shot in that role, especially if Hicks goes to AAA. Noticed from a quick look at his numbers that he's primarily played corner outfield, so maybe that would be too ugly of a defensive outfield if it was he, Hammer, and Parm.

I thought you were from Canada. Or is Manitoba the beer and fart jokes capital while and the illegal substances belong to British Columbia? :)

That's OK. My main goal was to try to lead the discussion away from more sensitive topics.

You're tempting me but I'm not biting, I don't need Glunn upset with me.

Thank you my old friend.

On a more topical note, Colabello is my hero of today's game and I hope that he keeps it up.

Colabello is a righty, he'd probably be a better fit than Thome if Gardenhire wants some pop off the bench if he's ready for the majors.

Nice outing by Worley today... Now Pelfrey is up next. Hopefully we see more of the same.

I hadn't seen that thread yet before posting. It must have looked like I was making a passive-aggressive response to it, but I actually wasn't; bad timing. With regard to the sub-thread about "language that a parent would not want their kid to see", if a kid is able to decode what I wrote then what I wrote is already pretty weak tea, considering. But, having raised three young'uns of our own, I'm hardly insensitive to the issue.

Thanks for making this clear. I am not sure how close that you came to the line, because the location of the line is not entirely clear. However, your effort to cooperate with the intent of the policy is appreciated, along with the fact that you have been one of the more active and valuable members of TD.
