Twins: SP Kevin Correia

CF Presley
RF Mastroianni
2B Dozier
DH Willingham
3B Plouffe
1B Colabello
LF Thomas
C Pinto
SS Bernier

Rangers: SP Travis Blackley

CF Martin
SS Profar
2B Kinsler
DH Beltre
RF Rios
LF Adduci
3B Baker
1B Moreland
C Soto

Things to Think About:

1. Think About Alex Presley... Batting Leadoff and Playing CF... OK... Let's see how he does.

2. Think About Josmil Pinto... Lot of us have been waiting to see this guy... OK... I know I'm pumped to see him play... Let's see how he does.

3. Think about Brian Dozier... 15 Dingers and that moves him from leadoff to the #3 Spot. We should all be Dozier Fans at this point.

4. Think about Clete Thomas... Still in the lineup... Too Funny... In LF today.

5. Think about Stats... I spent yesterday doing some research and the results were interesting. Did you know that 3 out of 4 people make up 75% of the Population?

Can there be a more depressing headline than this from the Twins home page at mlb.com?

Lol @ 4

6. Think about me sitting in 96 deg (heat index is 115) watching the Miracle game in Ft. Myers. Middle of 4, down 1-0. Lots of antics between innings at minor league games

7. Think about Oakland...two games back of Texas for the Division Lead. And the Twins roll out a lineup like that. Highest averages in the lineup? .244 (Dozier and Bernier). Next highest average? Trevor Plouffe. Don't blame Corriea for this. The A's management has a right to be upset.

Do the antics help you forget the heat index? I can't imagine sitting out in that (although truth be told I spent a big chunk of Friday sitting on metal bleachers in a heat index of over 100 myself, watching my daughter's college soccer team). I think I would prefer fewer antics, more action, but minor league games do have their charms.

It's not bad. If you know Hammond Field I'm sitting in section 203 all the way at the top. So I'm in the shade and getting a decent breeze. And now it's 2-0

I can't remember the last time I've seen a starting lineup that bad. Maybe back in the mid 90s when we were relying on the Scott Stahoviaks of the world.

Who's to say Thomas, Mastroianni, and Presley are redundant, when you can have them in the same stating outfield?!

Mastro makes up for Plouffe not sliding the other night by sliding twice.

Go look at some September lineups from two years ago.
