Royals: SP Ervin Santana

LF Gordon
1B Hosmer
DH Butler
C Perez
RF Lough
2B Tejada
3B Moustakas
SS Escobar
CF Dyson

Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

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

Things to think about:

1. Think about Justin Morneau... Are we watching the final game of Justin Morneau in a Twins uniform. Maybe... Maybe Not... We will find out soon enough... Tonight's game is worth watching just in case it is. Justin has been a long time Twin. He's one of us.

2. Think about Mike Pelfrey... He's been rolling good... He needs to keep rolling.

3. Think about the Royals Lineup... What are these guys... Lots of young talent... The lineup on paper looks like it could do some damage. On the field... They haven't done a ton of damage but they do seem to be improving a little.

4. Think about Joe Mauer... He's back... He needs to hit two home runs... One for each baby daughter.

5. Think about Ham... What exactly was cured ham... Cured of?

Hey, I'm going to the game tomorrow. Maybe I'll catch Morneau's/Duensing's/Carrol's last game as a Twin.
To answer your question about ham... it was cured of swine flu.

No Dozier, probably the back thing. I sincerely hope it is close to the last time Devil Eyes starts in right field.

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Joe: Jeez that one kinda got away from you.
Mike: My release point was a little off.
Joe: I didn't ask why.
Mike: Oh... Umm. Well yes it did.
Joe: Ok... That was ball 3... According to the official rule book. Ball 4 will result in a base on balls.
Mike: So... Throw a strike then.
Joe: Yep... It could be your release point... I'm going back to the plate.

Somewhere Bert is jealous, he's been forbidden to "swear" on the air for years.
