Indians: SP Zach McAllister

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

Twins: SP Samuel Deduno

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

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Andrew Albers... No Reason to think about Albers for tonight's game... But... How can you not still think about his performance.

2. Think about Sam Deduno... Sam has the talent to put a serious Monkey Wrench in the Indians post season plans. The Indians certainly don't want to drop two in a row to the Twins. If Deduno is on... The Indians won't be happy.

3. Think about Florimon/Dozier... I know Florimon doesn't OPS worth a darn. But the defense up the middle as been fantastic. There is value in that.

4. Think about Power... Is this the new way to produce runs. I can live with it. The Twins have not scored a run that wasn't produced by the long ball in 5 straight games. It's fun... I just don't know how long you can keep it up.

5. Think about your Pet... I bought some Cat Food and it said "New and Improved". The immediate thought I had after reading the claim of "New and improved". How would I know? Turns out the Cat ate it just like the previous "old regular" cat food. Thank God It said New and Improved because I would have had no way of knowing.

That would make me wonder if the other stuff was old and bad, like they made it that way intentionally so they could come out with something that was new and improved. Then again, it's probably the same old stuff, and the new and improved is just so they can charge you a bit more per can.

I'm still thinking about Canadian voyager songs, because that's where I left off yesterday. It hasn't been the best of days. I need to make cookies.

Cookies make me feel better too...eating them not making them.

Cheer up, somewhere a voyaguer is singing a song for you and we're only an hour away from the Sam Deduno flying circus.....that'll cheer you up.

Heh ... I'm not down ... just have too much work to do! I hate having too much to do. And baking cookies makes me feel good ... I sample them, give them my stamp of approval, then give them away to all the oohs and aahs of whomever is the recipient. That also makes me feel good. :)

Ah, stress, that's no good. You're a violinist aren't you? You need to play some good old fashion fiddle music, that'll fix ya!..................or not.

Today is International Left Handers day... And... We have two right handers matching up.

I have no idea what it's like to be left handed. I imagine that writing would be difficult because the paper would be at an odd angle. It also probably means that you would bump into walls and stuff from a lack of equilibrium. You would jam your toothbrush into your nostrils on occasion... Using a urinal would flood the bathroom.

I don't know... Left handers are just built wrong and I am sure there are problems that go along with it.

Deduno not following the PTC gameplan, could be trouble in the dugout.

"Jam shot."

From Dick, no less.

Better make it a double, just to be on the safe side.

Will the kangaroo court fine the first guy to score from first on a double?

ew, no ... I do not like cooked raisins. Raw, like in trail mix, I like. Cooked in anything when they are slimy? no.

I'm guessing you won't be joining Chief in his morning breakfast of stewed prunes, then.
