Game time is getting close. Could someone post lineups?

I am not good at setups, but would note that the Twins are leading the season series against the White Sox by 8 games to 2.

Keys to the game:

Twins pitch bad, they need to pitch better.

White Sox hit bad, they need to hit better.



Ground breaking stuff right there.

At least the HRs were solos. This could be much worse .... and its only the 2nd inning with no outs.

Not exactly Gold Glove defense. However, I can't see much more of Pelf before my eyes bleed to death.

Why couldn't he have done this in July?


Or June, May, or April for that matter.

I preemptively blame you for Pelfrey's poor inning.

I just checked BB Ref before the game. One of the things they note is record vs. teams above (and below) .500. Anyway, the Twins are 28-16 vs. losing teams and 23-46 vs. team with winning records. Unfortunately, more teams have winning records than losing records.

Double play, a pitcher's best friend. Pelfrey's Best Man. After all, it's a beautiful summer afternoon for a Saturday wedding.

Apparently the White Sox are not aware of the rule that a pitcher can't go out to start another inning when he's past 100 pitches. I assume the Union will lodge a complaint on Rienzo's behalf

Love the Florimon bunt. The Twins way of manufacturing runs is really working out for us....

Sure, but at what cost? 112 pitches, give or take. Oh, the humanity! He'll probably have a poor outing next time, if not already under the surgeon's knife.
