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.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

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

Sticking a sharpened pencil in your ear > 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.

If I'm happy for these little things, am I guilty of being happy for the ribbon just for participating?

PLOUFFE

That's a $1,000 fine. We need to curb the over swinging.

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

The rest... is just Ted being Ted.

Hughes Strikes out the side. This is getting really strange.

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.

Oh <bleep!> ... another <bleeping> race in my neighborhood tomorrow, which means major <bleeping> PITA. Rock 'n Roll Marathon (1/2 marathon) ... all these races ... so fun to run through my neighborhood ... they close all the streets and is a real pain getting around.
