    Game Thread: Twins @ Rays, 4/23 @ 6:10pm CT

    Game-time forecast: Mostly cloudy; 4% PoP; winds from the NNW at 16mph; temperature around 23 degrees F. (Okay, yes, there really is no forecast for a domed game, but since my posting a forecast yesterday went over so well, here's another one ... from somewhere in the world at game time.)

    Twins:
    SP, Pelfrey

    Dozier 2B
    Mauer 1B
    Plouffe 3B
    Colabello DH
    Kubel LF
    Pinto C
    Herrmann RF
    Escobar SS
    Fuld CF

    Rays:
    SP, Odorizzi

    Zobrist LF
    Jennings CF
    Joyce DH
    Longoria 3B
    Loney 1B
    Meyers RF
    Forsythe 2B
    Escobar SS
    Hanigan C

    -----------------------------

    Okay, now, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Brian! (in due time)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    OK... It's 5:47 and I have 13 minutes...

    Things to think about:

    1. Sam Fuld -- He makes his Twin debut tonight... He's a face full of dirt guy and I appreciate his style of play and am happy he's one of us now. I don't know if he's gonna satisfy us but he's here and we need him.

    2. Aaron Hicks -- Aaron gets a night off... It's actually possible and just a few days ago... I'm not sure that it was. Aaron hasn't hit the ground running in the majors... I believe that he will be running at some point but having Hicks as the only sensible CF option was a little scary while he is struggling.

    3. Mike Pelfrey -- He needs a good start tonight... The Season is young but he needs a good start regardless. If he doesn't... You gotta consider Deduno and Pelfrey switching roles.

    4. Brian Dozier -- He's Chris Davis with the power. He's among the HR leaders in the American League. Just let that roll around your brain awhile.

    5. Car Washes -- A guy from Mandan tripping on Meth recently lit himself on fire at a gas station in Dickinson North Dakota. He thought the police had sprayed chemicals on him... they didn't... and so he sprayed himself with gasoline. Then without putting two and two together... he decided to have a cigarette and poof. He actually put himself out by running through the car wash.

    My question is this... How much should that cost to run yourself through a car wash. It certainly would have to be a lesser rate than an actual car.

    I like the lineup - first chance to see Fuld in the field, nice to have not Colabello in Right. (He's been great at the plate, don't get me wrong)

    Really 23 degrees in Tampa? Wind chill must be close to 0.

    I did say 'somewhere in the world' at game time ... but I also said yesterday that I'd make something up. Real? Not real?

    No Hicks or Floriman. Why does it feel like we were just spotted 6-8 ABs?

    I like the lineup, too. I don't think Herrmann will get many more chances so he had better hit now or he's going to end up in Rochester, NY.

    Even if he goes 4-4 tonight, I don't see how he sticks around for long. Willingham, Arcia and Nunez should soon be supplanting Hermann, RP/SP (Tonkin? Pelfrey?) and Florimon.

    Beer? Check.
    Snacks? Check.
    Hat? Check.
    Glove? For what it's worth, check.
    Graphics? Double check.

    I'm guessing Greenland or Siberia for the ChiTown wether report.

    Jeez... We could have gotten Jennings out twice with two good throws.

    Dirt comments that there is "more speed" in the Kubel/Fuld/Herrmann outfield tonight. Laugh/cry decision mechanism confused.

    Does that count as a good inning from Pelfrey?

    I didn't go to Winnipeg once because the Temp looked to cold. It was 54 in Grand Forks and 12 in Winnipeg. I told everyone that we are not going.
