    Game Thread: Twins @ Yankees, 5/31@12:10pm CT

    Game-time forecast: Partly cloudy. Winds blowing in from left field at 10-15 m.p.h. Temperature near 70.

    Twins:
    SP, Correia

    Dozier 2B
    Escobar SS
    Mauer DH
    Willingham LF
    Arcia RF
    Plouffe 3B
    Parmelee 1B
    Pinto C
    Hicks CF

    Yankees:
    SP, Tanaka

    Gardner LF
    Jeter DH
    Ellsbury CF
    Teixiera 1B
    -Roberts (PH/6) 2B
    McCann C
    Soriano RF
    Solarte 2B-3B
    Johnson 3B-1B
    Ryan SS

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

    And we patiently await for Brian's morning coffee to reach his brain ... check back soon-ish.
    -----------------------------------

    No Problem... I just poured the coffee directly on it. Of course my skull was in the way but I found that the burning sensation did jump start me a bit.

    Things to Think About:

    1. Bloody Eyelids -- In a survey of 100 women... 75% of all women do not find bloody eyelids attractive in a man... 16% don't care either way... 5% seek out men with bloody eyelids and 4% can't find Nebraska on a map. Other interesting data from the survey... 66% would treat the injury with hydrogen peroxide. 22% would treat the wound with stronger nuclear materials and 12% would leave it alone hoping he learns a lesson. More information from the women. 90% percent feel a band aid on they eyelid would look strange while 60% percent think an eye patch would be kinda sexy. 14% percent think an eye patch on both eyes would stop men from looking at other women. 98% would be upset if he got blood on his shirt or furniture and 106% feel strongly that it is the man's fault. No matter what the women think... Danna Santana is out of the lineup today after getting 7 eyelid stitches.

    2. Mashiro Tanaka -- Starting for the Yankees today is the latest Japanese sensation Mashiro Tanaka. This guy is 7-1 with a 2.29 ERA. Combine this with his 24-0 record in Japan last year and he has lost just once while winning whatever 24 + 7 is(I didn't bring my abacus). Mashiro is 25 years old and was born in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan. I had to look up what a "prefecture is". The difference between a prefecture and a state is prefectures don't have the same authority that states hold... Prefecture are more like counties. I only thing I know about counties is that I seem to get busted for speeding more in certain counties than others. I've seen Tanaka pitch a couple of times and the first thing that caught my eye was his splitter... It looked nasty.

    3. Yosmil Pinto -- He's in the lineup today!!! Starting at Catcher and batting 8th. So... Now what can I complain about. Complaining about Pinto was starting to feel comfortable and once you find comfort in complaining... when you don't have anything to complain about you start to feel uncomfortable. I guess I'm like a farmer... It either rains too much or it doesn't rain enough.

    4. 4 5 and 6 -- With Plouffe moved from 3 to 6 in the lineup... The Middle of the order supplied power for our Twins last night and I hope it continues to do just that. Tack on Parmelee at 7 and Pinto at 8 and we have 5 guys in a row who can jerk one. They may need to jerk some today against Tanaka.

    5. Mountain Bikes -- My son has a mountain bike... What he doesn't have... is a mountain.

    Good news!

    I am going to the game today, thus we already know the Twins will lose. The good news is you can enjoy this beautiful day with your family/friends/lover(s) instead of wasting 4 hours watching Correia give up bomb after bomb.

    Your welcome in advance,

    I'm liking how that lineup looks
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    So I said it before the San Diego start and he won, but forgot to his last start. Complete game shutout for Corriea?

    This from LEN3: Danny Santana is not available today after taking seven stitches in his right upper eyelid on Friday. His eye is a little swollen, and trainers told Gardenhire no-go with Santana.

    Hmm ... I thought it was his left eye?

    LEN3 desperately needs a copy editor, a job that apparently no longer exists at the Strib.

    A little weak at 1B and DH, but hey, the corner OFs, and the rest of the infield is OK>

    I could be wrong. I don't know where I got left eye. So maybe I should get the copy editor?

    You know, Brian ... just some friendly advice. It's kind of dangerous to pretend to think you know what women think, even jokingly.

    I like this lineup. The only way it could be better is with Mauer playing 1st and Suzuki DH-ing, but I think we all know that will not happen.

    Any lineup that has The Fire Hydrant in the 8 hole, can't be all bad.
