Things to think about Today:

1. Think about -- The 3 Game winning streak... When you reach 3 in a row... It's a winning streak! Come Ride the Train... Hey Ride It.

2. Think about -- We out played them yesterday... We watched the well paid Swisher drop a ball at first... We watched the elite SS Asdrubal Cabrera fail to move one foot to his right and one foot forward to retire a hitter. We watched Drew Stubbs lay up on a ball he could have reached. We didn't do that stuff and we won.

3. Think about -- Pedro Florimon... Not only did he make 3 real nice defensive plays yesterday... He's also 4 for 8 at the plate in his last 3 games.

4. Think about -- Chris Colabello... 29 year old Rookie... 20 Major League at bats... 2 singles for .100 Average... If Colabello can go 4 for 4 at the plate today. His career average will jump up to .250. If hits 4 home runs today while going 4 for 4 at the plate. His Career OPS and Slugging percentage will jump up significantly as well.

After all of that Colabello stats breaking down... I sure hope he is in the lineup.

5. Think about -- The Odds of the Twins reaching the playoffs... When you do... you have to wonder why "Fat Chance" and "Slim Chance" mean the same thing.

News from around the league... According to lineups posted on Rotoworld... Carlos Pena is batting leadoff for the Astro's.

My Question... How messed up is your roster if you have to bat Carlos Pena leadoff?

Same lineup for the Twins and I believe also the same for the Tribe. I actually like Plouffe hitting second. I hope Colabello gets going.

edit: I see Reynolds is starting, so I guess the Native Americans made some changes.

I've been thinking if nothing all day. And my new avatar is my Vegas update. Off to the spa soon, followed by the steakhouse for dinner (this northern Midwestern girl likes her steak) and more gambling. Thoroughly relaxing vacay no matter how the Twins play! :)

Jimi Hendrix was a very average Right Handed Guitarist... They moved him to 2nd base and... Well... The rest is history!!!
