Thank you Gardy. I was banking on you resting majority of guys for the game against Zimmerman. Have a new betting strategy and its working off so far, and usually I try to avoid the Twins game but thought this was too good to pass up. Put $100 on the Nationals this game last night before the line moved this morning. Watch, now this blows up in my face now. :D

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader.

It's standard procedure for catcher to start just one of two doubleheader games. Ryan Doumit is behind the dish for the first game, but Mauer will be back in the for the second

Look at Clete with a normal number 11 on his jersey. It's not number 87 or anything like that.

Yes it is pretty hard to win both games of a double header. You saw the Angels concede the 2nd game with Bucholz yesterday, and you see the Twins essentially conceding the 1st game today against Zimmerman to have an advantage in the 2nd game.

So you are saying that I shouldn't watch this game?

No its a quality game. If you love the Twins, you can watch every game, despite knowing they aren't going to win every game. I'd say they have about 25% chance of winning this game. Thats worth watching for JMO

However... I'm not so sure Gardy is conceding anything.

Zimmerman will never last. He's not "getting that good downward plane," and he's not pitching "down in the zone."

If you live in Chicago... The way Traffic is in Chicago... You may want to leave now.

I've driven thru Chicago without stopping 4 times... Each time took 3 days to get through Chicago.

If you will indulge me for a moment. (Sliding over Soapbox and getting on it)

Escobar should be on third. It's the major leagues... The Thomas ball is caught 999 times out of 1000... I don't care... Half Ass it to second... You can half ass your approach at the plate and pretty soon the team has left 1,000 base runners stranded in 3 games. The Twins are playing half assed baseball and Escobar standing on 2nd with two out is just another example.

Escobar should be on third.
