A's: SP Sonny Gray

CF Crisp
3B Donaldson
SS Lowrie
RF Moss
LF Cespedes
1B Barton
DH Smith
C Vogt
2B Sogard

Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

CF Presley
3B Escobar
2B Dozier
RF Arcia
DH Plouffe
LF Willingham
1B Parmelee
C Herrmann
SS Florimon

Things to Think about:

1. Think about Sonny Gray... The Kid has been good with a 2.51 ERA since coming up from the farm recently. Kids that start good tend to stutter after awhile and maybe he will stutter tonight. I'm not sure I'd want a name like Sonny Gray... The two names seemed opposed to each other. He's like a conflicted sky. He's been Sonny so far... Let's make him Gray tonight.

2. Think about Eduardo Escobar... Batting 2nd and manning the 3B Spot... Been awhile since we seen him... For his sake... I hope he does well.

3. Think about Alex Presley... He is kicking Justin Morneau's rear end so far... Clearly we have won this trade with Pittsburgh. Morneau is 6 for 27 with only 1 extra base hit (a double). Presley... He's been 14 for 40... (2 doubles and 1 Dinger). We fleeced them Pirates... Raise that Jolly Roger!!!

4. Think about Dozier and the Hammer and the Plouffe... When game 162 concludes... Who will be the home run leader on the Twins. Dozier has 17 and that ties him with Justin Morneau for the team lead... Willingham and Plouffe have 14 bombs. Or will Arcia or Colabello get insanely hot and blow past the field. What were the odds at the beginning of the year that Dozier would be the home run leader. 100 to 1? 200 to 1? Dozier... Home Run Leader... is quite possible.

5. Think about Taxes... A Fine is a tax for doing wrong... A Tax is a fine for doing well.

On cue, Morneau 4 for 5 with a double today. Hope your post has the same effect on Presley tonight.

All right sports fans, the Twins march to .500 continues -- 18 wins in the last 19 games will do it.

Thanks for your concern ChiTown. I have fired my mother and now have adopted you as my adult woman overseer. Essentially, you are my new mom... Congratulations!!!

A bag of clothes pins wouldn't hurt either.

We will need to know what you are baking... And we will require a photo when they are done.

Dont worry about Bark... He's already baked :)

already got one batch done ... wasn't really baking involved ... just melting, pouring, and stirring

next batch does require mixing and baking
