Twins: SP Sam Deduno

2B Dozier
DH Mauer
1B Morneau
C Doumit
3B Plouffe
RF Parmelee
CF Hicks
LF Thomas
SS Florimon

Yankees: SP Phil Hughes

CF Gardner
RF Suzuki
2B Cano
DH Wells
1B Overbay
LF Almonte
SS Cruz
3B Gonzalez
C Romine

Things to think about for todays game:

1. Let's think about Arcia on the bench. He needs to sit after 11 K's in the past 3 games and failing to break a bat over his knee in frustration.

2. Let's think about this Yankees lineup. If the Yankees lineup was ours. We'd complain about it.

3. Let's think about Sam Deduno... OK... Just a quick thought about Sam... Now move on to #4

4. Let's think about Phil Hughes... The Yankees are trying to trade him. We can help them get less for him.

5. Let's think about the well fed children of the world... The Starving Children are the ones always talked about and rightly so... But for one day out of 365... Let's think about the well fed children so they know they matter. July 13th is as good a day as any.

3 so far.

I don't know what is worse - watching the Twins play the Damn Yankees or listening to the Band Damn Yankees?

I met Ted Nugent... He's a good guy... I don't agree with him... But he's a good guy.

Yeah he is... But... the Guy walks into a room and treats you like you are a human being.

I've seen Phil Hughes' name mentioned as an acquisition target, in another thread. I hope the Twins front office realizes that if they trade for him, he won't be able to put up as good strikeout numbers, because he won't be periodically facing the Twins.

Most nut jobs are good guys, in small doses, until you cross them somehow. IMHO.

I asked Uncle Ted... Why there isn't any Ted Nugent, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen type Guitar superstars today?

He gave a 10 minute answer that could be summed up as "It's Obama's Fault"

I actually thought the Twins were going to take 2 of 3 in Yankee stadium this weekend. Because baseball is strange like that.

Could still happen. But the strikeouts arent a great sign.

Great question. Right now, I think it might be Tonkin, but if the bully gets abused again today, they might send someone else down. I would like to see the bullpen cut by one, but no one really jumps out as a demotion candidate. I also think that an injury, any injury, could put someone on the DL so that Tonkin could get a longer look.
