Twins: SP Samuel Deduno

Angels: SP Joe Blanton

Things to think about for Tonight's Game

1. Think about Deduno... He's doing well... Let him continue doing well. We could use him in 2014.

2. Think about Blanton... He's not doing well... Pitchers who are not doing well present opportunities for the offense to do well.

3. Think about our offense... Our offense is not doing well... It may not matter if Blanton is not doing well... A struggling offense can be the tonic Blanton is looking for.

4. Think about Plouffe... Many players need to get it going... Plouffe perhaps needs to get it going more than anyone else on the roster.

5. Think about unexpected gifts... I got a package delivered to me today... Where it typically says "Open Here" it says "Open Somewhere Else" I haven't opened the package yet because that marking has completely confused me.
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

Think about my older son who is attending the game as his birthday present.

I will be attending with my younger son. We will be sitting right next to the Twins dugout.

Not him. He's on first.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Gardy, for starters. And Anderson. But as always, I will mainly be cheering and yelling positive thoughts. This will be the only game I attend in person this year -- my one chance to let the Twins know I care.

Wonder if I can get the game from my flight. Nothing like yelling 'YESSSS!' and 'NOOOOO!' from 30,000 ft.

Your trip to Vegas did not last long enough, which is always the case. I hope that all of your aliases had a great time.

Yes, all my aliases had a great time. They are already poking me wondering when we'll return. But I think I need to save some money first. It's really easy to throw it away. Even at the airport the call of that damn Wheel of Fortune machine is proving too great!

Are you still at the airport? If you're at the airport more than 5 minutes before last call for your flight, you're doing Vegas wrong.

My prospect, Tyler Duffey, is giving his best Masterson impersonation. He has currently pitched 4 perfect innings with 6 strikeouts. Keep an eye on him until the game starts. He has been consistently getting better with each start in Ft. Myers.

Yes okay I did Vegas wrong then. I took the free airport shuttle and it got me here earlier than I would have come if I were taking a taxi. But this is the Vegas airport; I can still gamble away my life savings and get drunk before boarding my flight

That's the kind of planning only a woman could do.......now get started....except the gambling part, you'll need the money if you're ordering doubles in an airport.

But, to be honest, I am far too Midwestern to do either.
