With a lefty on the mound tonight this is about as right handed that they can get.

Lots of "Spring Training" power in the line-up...let's see if they can back-up yesterday's hit parade with another performance. I would love to see Ploufee or Hughes put up some consistent numbers. We could use someone in that 8,9,1,2 spot be able to put the ball in the gap or over the fence and drive in some people.

The bottom of the order could actually be productive.

That is what I am hoping...i would love to see this on a consistent basis minus Doumit catching and having Parmalee play first and have Joe catching (understand though that this is probably their best hitting line-up against lefties).

It looks the rain is supposed hold off until after 10. The weather channel lists a 10% chance of rain until 10.

Looks like a strong wind will carry the ball in left field. More for Willinghammer?

That's the power lineup. With Hughes batting 9th that's pretty solid.

Swarzak is doing all right. Very encouraged by that...

Tough break. The Twins get a double-play ball but Swarzak reaches out, knocks it down and it ends up an infield single. Texas scores on the next batter with a single.

I spoke too soon, although that Hamilton hit should have been a double play...Joe has a nice stretch at first...and just like that they are behind 2-1...ahoot!! I jinxed him....

Hughes' spot on this roster it tentative enough without sucking defensively.

5 ground balls and zero outs. The baseball gods hate us.

And Willingham gets in on the action by throwing to the wrong base.

Compared to how Liriano looked yesterday, Swarzak looks like Cy Young.
