Twins: SP Liam Hendriks

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

Indians: SP Zach McAllister

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

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Arcia... He's back... I don't know why but I just feel better having him in the lineup.


2. Think about Herrmann... Rookie Smookie... It's often been said that Rookies tend to struggle when they face MLB Pitching for the first time. That is probably true but there are some rookies who try to ignore that. Herrmann is ignoring it and he is playing like he wants to stay.

3. Think About Gardenhire... Herrmann has to be impressing Gardenhire with his play... If Herrmann is going to be on the opening day roster in 2014... Advocacy from Gardenhire would be an important to Herrmann... However... Will Gardenhire be around to give to be an advocate for Herrmann. BTW... Gardenhire is 11 Wins from 1,000.

4. Think about a big winning streak... The Twins have 35 games left... If they win all 35 Games... They will finish with a 92-70 record... That might be good enough for the playoffs.

5. Think about Plants... People say you should talk to Plants... About 18 years ago I did. I had a short conversation with Robert Plant. Robert was 6 feet tall when I started talking to him... I just looked it up... Today's he's 6-1. He clearly grew... I think this talking to plants stuff actually works.

May the Four Sacred Deities of Australia Guide Mr. Hendriks into the Holy Light of Victory!

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Even if they miss the playoffs, 92-70 will be a great boost toward next season!

I may even go drink one of these four, just to be in the correct spirit for the game.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Crikey... You are such a feisty little Sheila... You are... Such a pretty girl you are... What I have here is called an orchestral librarian. You can find these gorgeous creatures in cities like Chicago.

They are very particular creatures... They like music and they preserve and catalog it. Ok... You want to go now... Off you go... Such a pretty girl. Ok... If we keep walking.... We will find what we are looking for... Just ahead... If we keep going... We find one of those elusive Beverly Hills Lawyers.

I've got a bout of August Alergies.... Other than that... I'm just channeling a little Crocodile Hunter.

Damn ... two things I didn't want to see this early in the game ... Hendryks giving up a home run and Arcia striking out. :/

So much for 92-70.



Guess we'll have to settle for 91-71. Thanks a bunch Liam.
