Twins: SP Liam Hendriks

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

White Sox: Erik Johnson

CF De Aza
SS Ramirez
3B Gillaspie
1B Konerko
DH Dunn
LF Viciedo
RF Danks
2B Beckham
C Anderson

Things to Think About:

1. Think about the White Sox... I can't start a game thread... Game One... Against the White Sox... Without stating how much I hate the White Sox... I want them punished.

2. Think about Liam Hendriks... Will he pitch well... Will he struggle?? That's a good question... Let's find out.

3. Think about Trevor Plouffe... Batting in the 3 spot... Moving up in the world.

4. Think about Ron Gardenhire... 4 wins away from 1,000... 14 Games to go... Does he make it... It's not a given... that is for sure.

5. Think about Lies... I was talking to a friend the other day and telling him one of my stories... He looked me in the eye and said "You're Lying". I responded with "Yes I am... But hear me out anyway".

I yearn for the day that no-hit utility infielders are permanently relegated to the bottom of the order where they belong.

That day is scheduled for June 14th 2014. Hang in there... It's coming!!!

What? No Dozier? Glad I opted out of actually spending money and going to the game.

Is that the Super-2 cutoff date when Rosario, Sano, and Buxton all join the team? (with Hicks thrown in for good measure)

You should be able to trade some cookies for a ticket they'd be worth more.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

You could punish them with so many wins that they don't get as good a draft pick next June, but I think they are pretty close to locked in to their draft spot by now.

5. Think about Lies

Maybe Dozier is resting up so that he can look for an educated fan to party with after the game?

But the bat handling, think of the bat handling.

There is no May and Mayer. They're made up.

"Play 2nd bat 2nd" is an itch that can only go so long without being scratched.

Any GM will tell you the Super 2 is never a consideration.

Actually I snuck into Terry Ryan's office to use the bathroom... He has a big calender on the wall. The Calender is marked with specific steps for the improvement of the franchise.

It said... "June 14 2014... Step 9... Relegate utility infielders to 7th in the order".

I guess a person could come up with Five Questions about just that one video. Such as, "is that one dancer in the front Olivia's grandma?"

He needs a rest... He's facing a tough right hander... He got stuck in Chicago Traffic trying to find your place... He's got a sore throat. The dog ate his batting gloves and... Bert Blyleven said something mean about his Mississippi accent and he refuses to play.

You'd think that itch would have turned into a full-fledged gangrenous sore by now in dire need of amputation.

This is probably one of the things (lineup construction/ignoring platoons) that the organization should look for new management with new ideas.

Hey I'm ready for a managerial change too, but that kind of name calling is out of bounds, buddy.

Okay ... I know this isn't true. I mean, Kenny Williams used to live in my building; so did Octavio Dotel; it can't be THAT hard to get here and around.

Or maybe he is looking for ChiTown in the hope of scoring some apple crisp before it's all gone.
