Indians: SP Justin Masterson

CF Stubbs
SS Cabrera
2B Kipnis
DH Swisher
C Santana
1B Reynolds
LF Brantley
RF Raburn
3B Aviles

Twins: SP Scott Diamond

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

Things to think about today:

1. Think about 4 Wins in a Row... If this was the ALCS Championship... We would be able to rest our starters while we wait to see who we face in the World Series.

2. Think about Chris Herrmann... Batting #2 in the lineup... Not Just in the lineup... But... Placed With Priority in the lineup.

3. Think about Doug Bernier... Still waiting for that chance to get some dirt on his new #17 Jersey.

4. Think about 3-2... Two days in a row with that score. Why not make it 3 in a row.

5. Think about Hypothetical Situations... OK... Now... Imagine a World without them.

Herrmann has done well with the Twins this year. Masterson is tough, but the Twins have handled him somehow pretty often. I'm not surprised that Gardy moved him down. If the Twins sweep this series it would be a feather in their caps.

If you haven't started trading barbs on twitter yet I think you're ok.

3 lefties in a row. Don't often see that in a Gardy lineup.

Five slow guys in a row. That's not on Gardy, but we do see it often. When you're not odds-on to score on a single followed by a double or a double followed by a single, you have to string together several successes to score a run. (Although Cleveland may give you four outs to do it.)

Naw, you blocking her posts is the next step. Divorce is still a couple steps away.

I just figured "let's be friends" is soon followed by "we should see other people."

I'd unfriend her... To test the relationship.

If she doesn't notice... Everything is good.
If she notices... It was never meant to be... You've been duped for 30 years.

Both my Sons are in the living room with me... Masterson just blows Mauer away with a 97MPH fastball...

I turn to my 15 year old son and say... 97 MPH... Do you know how fast that is?

My 15 Year old son says "I don't know"
My 19 year old son is in College... He says "umm... The answer would be 97 MPH".

College is paying off.

Let's test that theory. Ask Joe College how far that baseball would travel in 60 minutes.

Dozier... You shoulda stopped at 2nd...

Florimon you should have thrown to first if Dozier doesn't stop at 2nd.

So, I'm guessing Tom Kelly isn't aware that the Indians are 4th best in MLB in stolen bases and the Twins are the 4th worst?

I have the sound turned off on my TV and I could still hear that line drive off the bat of Aviles all the way down here in Tucson.

I did...

my 15 year old... Thought for a second and said... 97 Miles...

My 19 year old said it would depend on Gravity and wind resistance and he seriously doubted Masterson's ability to throw the ball 97 miles.
