Tigers: SP Doug Fister

CF Jackson
RF Hunter
3B Cabrera
1B Fielder
DH Martinez
2B Infante
LF Tuiasosopo
C Avila
SS Santiago

Twins: SP Scott Diamond

CF Presley
2B Dozier
3B Plouffe
DH Willingham
C Pinto
RF Doumit
1B Parmelee
LF Thomas
SS Escobar

Things to Think About:

1. Last Night... Let it linger... A nice come back win against a contending team... You want to clinch the pennant... Not on our turf... We can say that for now.

2. Pinto... Josmil... has been given a chance and he is making the most of that chance. Mauer at 1B has to be in the 2014 plans now.

3. Mauer... Shut down for the year... Oh Well... We will see you next year Joe. We better see you next year Joe.

4. 1,000 Wins... 6 Games left to play... 2 wins to reach 1,000 Wins for Gardenhire... All my energy... All my focus is on this goal. I want it.


5. Success... If at first you don't succeed... Try Try again... Makes sense... Determination will take you a long way in life. Unless you are trying to succeed at Skydiving.
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

6. The season series between MN and DET. If the Twins take the next two games we will win that season series. I like the idea of DET winning the series and all of us saying; well yeah, but we OWNED you this year.

7. Okay, yes, broken record but think about Dozier. He came through with the tie run with his 18th homer AND scored the game winning run.

and with that I'm out to dinner and will bbl.

Bases loaded with no outs -- not looking good for Diamond and the Twins.

Diamond is going with that 'make them overconfident' strategy again, huh?

Diamond wriggled out of that jam. He even got one of those strikeout thingies.

And a little love for Doumit getting the extra-bagger to have a RISP in the first place.

I didn't see the Tuiasosososososososopo*groundout, but it probably helped to have very slow baserunners as well.

* I know how to spell it. I just don't know when to stop.

I for one would just assume Gardy not get 1000 wins... Not that I hate the guy, but I'd like the Twins picking 4 and not 5 if they can pull it off.

I really really hope bringing back Pelf is not part of the fix!

Because my wife is out of town, I could go to the living art gallery, but I am simply too tired. Instead I am going home now to watch the rest of the game.

Who knows? He could pull a Dickey and win the CY Young next year.

I don't know Glunn...
I'm just tracking the game on Gameday and it's making me awfully tired.

Well, YOU aren't getting any for calling me a jinx. Whether or not it's true, you didn't have to do that. ;)
