Indians: SP Danny Salazar

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

Twins: SP Andrew Albers

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

Things to think about:

1. Think about Andrew Albers... There is no way he is not thought number one after his debut. Wouldn't we love to see him do it again.

2. Think about Salazar... He's a young pitcher for the Indians who is also just getting started with his career. Indian Fans like us Twins Fans are hoping that Salazar can keep pitching well like we are with Albers.

3. Think about Canada... A country full of pleasant yet odd people... Odd Phrasings... Accents... Money and Hats. Yet tonight we are hoping that Saskatchewan Native Albers and BC Native Justin Morneau can keep doing what they were doing. For tonights game... The Twins will be relying more on Canadians than the Wild do. Oh Canada... Our Home and Native Land.

4. Think about Jamey Carroll... He's been traded to the Royals. Good for Jamey... I hope he has a great couple months in KC.

5. Think About Pizza... Canadian Bacon Pizza... While working the penalty box during a High School age Hockey Tourney... I once asked 10 different Canadian Youth Hockey players this question when they came into the penalty box. "If you put Ham on a Pizza what is it called?"

Only 1 of them said "Canadian Bacon"... 2 of them said "I don't know" and 7 of them said "Ham Pizza".

Canadian Bacon is good on pizza, but American Bacon is much, much better.

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.

Lucky you. You actually have a life. The rest of us will watch the Twins game and try not to fall asleep/fall into a state of depression.

Andrew Albers will never give up a run in his major league career. I'm convinced.

Brian Dozier is the greatest second baseman in the history of baseball. I'm convinced.
