    Game Thread: Twins v Tigers, 4/26 @ 1:10pm CT

    Game-time forecast: Mostly cloudy. Winds blowing in from left field at 10-20 m.p.h. Temperature around 50. 0% PoP.

    Tigers:
    SP, Sanchez

    Kinsler 2B
    Hunter RF
    Cabrera 1B
    Martinez DH
    Jackson CF
    Castellanos 3B
    Romine SS
    Holaday C
    Davis LF

    Twins:
    SP, Hughes

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

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

    And now for the entertainment portion of our regularly scheduled program, just after these messages ... (okay, there are no messages, but check back later for Brian's musings).

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

    (Camel Walking around) What day is it? What Day is it?
    ChiTown: Umm... It's Saturday
    (Camel Leaves)

    Things to think about:

    1. Sam Fuld -- Gardy seems to like his new toy... Why Not? Fuld is stroking the ball. I'd keep playing with it.

    2. Offense -- Offense Stomp Stomp... Offense Stomp Stomp... Ok forget about pitching and defense... It's a whole new world... Let's just try and out slug them with Plouffe, Colabello, Kubel, Pinto, Suzuki and Fuld.

    3. Pitching -- BUT WE CAN'T FORGET ABOUT PITCHING... We got to start get better starting pitching. We are hitting well enough to be 25 and 3 right now.

    4. That Inning Again -- With props to Stringer for his eloquent phrasing ... Phil Hughes has been good more often than he has been bad. Each game has seen one bad inning and one bad inning alone. Let's hope we don't see "THAT INNING" today.

    5. A question... Why is that people who know the least... know it the loudest?

    Speaking of entertainment, I predict you will get a kick out of this:

    I saw that one! Honestly, being a string player, that really takes some skill to pull off!

    I'd love to see them do something with Peter Schickele.

    Let's hope that the Tigers quick hook of Porcello pays dividends with an overworked bullpen--but that means knocking a starter out before the eighth...

    Low 50s and partly cloudy. A nice enough day at Target Field.

    Stuck at work, but the boss -- me -- sez it's OK to doodle with the interwebs. So everyone please do that voodoo that you do so well.

    Not being a string player would take even more skill to pull off.

    The throw to nobody allowed Cabrera to move up a base and cost a run (pending Jackson's AB).

    I was kind-of hoping they would have dopped on a sparkly layer of lipstick, with Robert Palmer popping out from stage left, and gone all-in on an orchestral arrangement of "Simply Irresistible".

    True. Though how close did he come to makin' the catch? (was slightly distracted at the moment it happened, but was under the impression it was close...)

    Anyway, i really hope we can make up two runs. Especially now that we're at bat.
