According Strib, Gardy is batting Clete leadoff so the bottom of the order isn't too left handed. Uhhh.

??? Plouffe and Dozier are the only right handed hitters in the lineup.

Gardy's looking to earn style points for pinch hitting for his leadoff batter if they bring in a tough lefty in the late innings. Any schmoe can make the call to pinch hit for an 8th spot batter.

Over the years, I've seen Gardy pencil in some really dumb choices at the 1/2 spot of the lineup.

I'm not sure where Clete Thomas ranks on that list but he ain't low on it, that's for sure.

Dozier has too much power for the lead off spot... Hitting 8th that power can shine.

Damn -- not carrying this game on Extra Innings. I was hoping to be able to watch part of it before going out tonight.

Mauer with a two-run homer in the first? Didn't we see this plot recently? It's June, time for reruns maybe?

Fox owns it and they are probably only giving it to Twins and Indians County.

Indeed. And after that lengthy at-bat, Mauer gives the first pitch a whack just to put the pitcher off-stride. Nice.
