White Sox: SP Jose Quintana
LF De Aza
Things to Think About:
1. Think about Power... Justin Morneau is finding the seats and so is Oswaldo Arcia. It would be nice if we added some hitting from the rest of the lineup but Morneau and Arcia on a roll is a nice thing to see.
2. Think about AAAA... At AAA... Chris Colabello at age 29 produced a .354 BA along with 24 dingers in 322 at bats... OPS 1.084. Colabello still ranks as the top hitter in the International League this year. Sending him back down to AAA in my mind... would be kinda like saying... "You ain't gonna make it at your age". If Doumit wouldn't have been injured... Colabello may have been sent down to make room for Willingham.
In the majors... Colabello .213 with 4 dingers in 84 at bats... OPS .684... Colabello is starting to heat up a little. In the past 5 games he is 6 for 14... Is he heating up? Let's all hope so. Colabello would be a nice power addition to this club. I haven't given up on him but I will have to give up on him if the Twins do.
3. Think about Kevin Correia... It's a road start... Kevin Correia has a 3.28 ERA at home... He has a 6.87 on the road. Is he asking the concierge for advice on how to approach hitters?
4. Think about the White Sox... They are in last place... and yep... they still piss me off.
5. Think about kids running by the pool... I can tell a kid to Slow Down and I can tell a kid to Slow Up and it's the same message.

Have I mentioned how much I hate wasting at-bats on the likes of Clete, Grampa, and "Bernie"?
Myself... I'm a play them all guy... If you are on the 25 man. You wouldn't rot. With that said... The three guys you mention would struggle to make my 25 man.

One guy with above average speed in the Twins' starting lineup today. Four with average speed and four below average to glacier slow. Role reversal with the Sox.
Mastro can bring some needed speed. The White Sox coaches aren't even bothering to bring the stopwatches to the dugout to time our guys.
