Royals: SP Bruce Chen

LF Gordon
3B Bonofacio
1B Hosmer
DH Butler
RF Maxwell
C Kottaras
SS Escobar
2B Getz
CF Dyson

Twins: SP Sam Deduno

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

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Willingham... Claimed by the Orioles was he... He's in the lineup so nothing as of yet. They have by noon tomorrow to work out a deal.

2. Think about Morneau... There are some rumors that Orioles are trying to work out a deal for both Willingham and Morneau. They are rumors... Who knows... I hope we get something back if they both go. Something better than Jim Hoey.

3. Think about Florimon... Batting 2nd in the lineup today... Oddly... Dozier and Florimon (Middle Infield) were the biggest concerns going into the season. I think it's almost safe to say that right now... Dozier and Florimon are what the team can build around for 2014. Today they will hit 1 and 2 in the lineup.

4. Think about Deduno... He had a rough patch... Rumors of dead arm and then a decent start last time around. What will happen today. Is it dead arm guy or the guy with the crazy fastball and sharp breaking pitch.

5. Think about Cars... If you lined up all the cars in the world from end to end. I would still try to pass them.

I'm not sure this is possible - if you were driving a car past the line, then not all the cars in the world would be lined up.

Stay tuned - next week I prove that it is not possible to walk from point A to point B. (Those wanting to read ahead can look up the Greek philosopher Zeno).

Can a man step into the same river twice?

How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

What is the difference between a duck?

Why aren't I saving these for sometime when I need to sub for Brian?

Did you not understand my post? None. Motion is impossible.

So Gardy's gone - for arguing, or for there being a hit batsman?

I don't know. My theory is, Gardy likes getting tossed.

I take it no one can see this game. MLB.com broadcast with Provus and Gladden radio commentary.

Ugh. 18 minutes. A new record for how short a time it takes for me to lose interest in a game. Looks like I'll have to do some work today instead.

He probably shouldn't ever phrase it that way to Liam Hendriks, who is Australian.

Yup, this is going nowhere fast. Nice play by Dozier to get the runner straying off of 3rd.

He likes being ejected? not sure if that's any better.

I can see the game the day I quit being cheap and wait for the free games they sometimes throw our way.

It's the little things that make the difference when the two teams are of roughly the same caliber. Sadly, these teams are not of the same caliber.
