    ST Game Thread: Twins v Rays, 3/24/14 @ 12:05

    Here I am at the airport killing time before my flight home. Am so sad to be leaving this warm weather, but that sadness is buffered a bit by the fact that it is raining here in Fort Myers. And just watch, I'll get the lineups and game thread posted and the game will get cancelled. So be it, and here they are:

    Rays:
    SP, Archer

    Matt Joyce (L) RF
    David DeJesus (L) LF
    Ben Zobrist (S) 2B
    James Loney (L) 1B
    Wilson Betemit (S) DH
    Desmond Jennings (R) CF
    Logan Forsythe (R) 3B
    Jose Molina (R) C
    Yunel Escobar (R) SS

    Twins:
    SP, Pelfrey

    Brian Dozier (R) 2B
    Kurt Suzuki (R) C
    Joe Mauer (L) 1B
    Josh Willingham (R) LF
    Jason Kubel (L) DH
    Trevor Plouffe (R) 3B
    Oswaldo Arcia (L) RF
    Aaron Hicks (S) CF
    Pedro Florimon (S) SS


    I'm so not a fan of this order, but what do I know? As a girl, I was told to go play softball, and I did. So, let it begin and play ball!

    Does it seem like this ST has been rainier than usual?

    Swap Suzuki and Hicks, and are you OK with it? (And maybe then swap Hicks and Dozier?) I presume they plan to do everything they can to take the pressure off Hicks to start the season; if he thrives then there is plenty of season left to move him up.

    If you want Suzuki out and Pinto in, well, similar reasoning probably applies there too.

    If both Hicks and Pinto are clicking, by mid May the lineup could look more promising. Or, if Willingham and Plouffe are scuffling, no amount of re-ordering will fix it.

    I think Mauer should be batting 2nd but then who bats 3rd? If Arcia were hitting better maybe him but ... that's the problem. As I said what do I know?

    Sounds like you're so not a fan of this roster.

    Len 3 is reporting Escobar and Kubel have made the team.

    If they send Colabello down I will be really mad. Hmpf! But then Len 3 said Gibson was our 5th starter so I will believe it when the Twins say it.

    I'm soaked. But there was alot of money flowing here today. They sold Miracle ponchos for $5 a crack and there must of been 400 of them out there today. The food was getting eaten and the beer flowing. And the gift shop had a waiting line of at least 1/2 hour plus they were selling T shirts outside the gift shop. So all's not lost today.

    I figured there was no way they would play, but at one they just announced delayed. Why cancel when money is pouring in!

    The minor leaguers played each other and started at 9:30 and played 7 innings.

    If a game thread about a cancelled game (plus the joke) doesn't count as mindlessness, I don't know what does.
