Twins still haven't released their lineup. I'm curious to see if we're going to see a getaway day lineup or just 1-2 guys sitting for the day.

At the very least, I'd expect to see Carroll start... But do you replace Florimon or Dozier?

Take a drink every time Bert says "Peltrey"

I expect to hear a lot of confusion from Bert as he spends 5+ innings trying to figure out why the Orioles are wearing grey and blue uniforms before dismissing it as some throwback Negro League thing he doesn't understand.

Third straight day game (but three hours earlier), I would guess that Mauer and Doumit flip-flop positions, but I would expect everyone else to stay where they are. I'm sure Gardy would like to see Parm and Hicks get off the schnide before they get a day off.

Carroll for Dozier. Otherwise status quo. Some might say this is the best lineup the Twins can put out there.

Interesting. I thought Florimon might get the day off. Oh well, no great loss one way or the other.

Mauer had power behind that throw but again, it tailed off to right field.

No worries, Pelfry will strike out the side. (optimism)

So after the blown save the tigers signed Valverde to a minor league contract.

Florimon can "pick it" but can he throw it....sounds like he hops everything to Morneau.

Parmelee has looked lost the last couple of games. Well, time for Brunansky to do his job.

Methinks it's time to maybe give Escobar a starting shot at SS. Why not? He certainly has more pop than Florimon, if anything.
