    I have a work function and will be out either way

    Gibson's in the hot tub. He'll throw the first three innings tonight, then Pelfrey for four, followed by Duensing, Tonkin and Fein to close it out. Somehow we have to get another starter a win.

    Make that Pelfrey for three, Deduno for three, etc. and you may have called it.

    Let's look back on the roster decisions from spring training:

    Gibson as 5th Starter - Good
    Keeping Kubes after awful spring - Good
    Colabello as your 25th player - Good
    Pinto as your backup catcher/DH - Good
    Bartlett - can't get them all right
    Deduno in the pen - jury is still out on that

    If you said we'd be 7-7 after 14 games at the beginning of the season, I would have taken that in a heartbeat. Now lets see if Pelfrey can get straightened out.

    With Riverbrian's brain sitting in the hot tub, here's something completely different to think about between games:

    If Colabello were the 25th player on the opening roster...

    Especially if those players are good at playing baseball on a planet made entirely of styrofoam packing peanuts.

    Florimon is out. There is a god.

    Plouffe is out, too. Apparently, Nunez provides better defense at the hot corner.

    So is Plouffe. Don't hate the lineup, but I'd rather see Trevor out there.

    FWIW, I was replying to afurry.

    The game notes on the ESPN recap of the day game were interesting.

    1) Gibson is the first Twins starting pitcher to be in the opening rotation and win his first three starts since Livan frickin' Hernandez in 08! Ugh.
    2) Gibson managed to prevent Melky Cabrera from getting a hit, which snaps his season-long hit streak.
