    Game Thread: Brewers@Twins 6/5 7:10PM

    Game-time forecast: Partly cloudy with a 30-percent chance of rain. Winds blowing in from right field at 10-15 m.p.h. Temperature around 70.

    ChiTown is coming along with the lineups. Check This Space for great specials.
    Hey, Bri -- not sure what's special, but here you go ...

    Brewers:
    SP, Peralta

    Segura SS
    Braun RF
    Lucroy C
    Gomez CF
    Ramirez DH
    Davis LF
    Gennett 2B
    Reynolds 3B
    Overbay 1B

    Twins:
    SP, Correia

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

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

    Things to Think About:

    1. Fun -- 28 and 29... That's kinda fun. Yes... That's where our wildest dreams live after the past few years. A .500 Record... Alright... Let's throw a party. Just in case the sarcasm meter is going off while you read this. It shouldn't be going off at all. I'm happy with the 28-29 record and the team is currently 4 games out of first in the AL Central. There is plenty of baseball to go and one hot streak could bring the cops to the party after the neighbors complain.

    2. Wily Peralta -- Tonight the Twins face Wily Peralta... and Wily is doing quite well this year. He spent the last year as an average starter at the age of 21. He's 22 this year and his numbers dropped with a 2.73 ERA thus far. Wily was born in the Dominican Republic... A place called Samana. Hanley Ramirez and Fernando Rodney are also from Samana. If you look at a map of the Dominican Republic... it looks like a Triceratops looking to the right and if that's the case. Samana is located in the horn. So... If the Domincan republic were ever attacked by a T Rex. They would use Samana and surrounding area to impale the attacker. Obviously, sometime during his youth an "L" fell off his first name (probably when the T-Rex attacked) and he was too lazy to find it and put it back. He didn't own a baseball glove until he was 11 years old and used to practice pitching by throwing a lemon. Sometimes he would use a lime and after he watched younger children licking the wall that he was throwing against... He realized that he had invented Sprite. Wily throws a hard sinker and he throws it again and again and again and again. How he learned to throw a sinker like that with a lemon... I have no idea.

    3. Rain -- There is rain in the forecast tonight for Target Field. The rain is supposed to fall between 7th and 5th street and 2nd and 6th Avenue in Minneapolis. The Target Center and Graves Hotel forecast is sunny.

    4. Oswaldo Arcia -- Just like the Brewers are happy to see Peralta take large leaps forward in his development. The Twins have to be happy with the way Arcia is swinging the bat right now. Last night... He got around on an inside fastball and managed to keep it fair and gone by a large distance. That is an impressive set of hands. Keeping that ball fair takes talent. When you see him do something like that you realize that his potential ceiling is quite high. It's a moment where you put the stats down. Whatever they say... they don't say enough... He's capable of more.

    5. Muzak -- I just realized that Muzak isn't really around much anymore. It's mostly used as on-hold entertainment these days. You don't find it in elevators much anymore... I suppose that's progress. I'm thinking about this because I sat on hold for a little while today and listened to a Muzak Version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and I got a little nervous. It was the fear that whoever came up with the idea of Muzak may be coming up with another idea.

    Muzak is all boutique satellite stations now with original artists. You can hear it in most larger retail stores, including the one my wife and I own in S.D. Not sure what you were hearing. Possibly some ironic bump on NPR?

    I hope the Twins can do to Wile E. Peralta what the Roadrunner did to him.

    I'm not surprised that Nunez was inserted into the lineup tonight, but I am surprised that he isn't playing 2nd Base. I thought for sure it was the right time for Dozier to finally take his first night off from the field and DH. Still, it's another solid-looking lineup, but I fear Wile E is going to be too much, he throws a gopher ball or two, but the wind is blowing in on the Twins lefties tonight.

    Like many, our attention will be directed elsewhere. Hopefully this is the last time for a long, long time that the Twins draft so high, I'm hoping the worst they end up with is Gordon.

    Hopefully the Twins win again so Gardy must put Pinto in for a third game in a row.

    If this is the start of Pinto catching 40% of the time, and DHing 20-30%of the time, that would be great.....imo.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Nick Gordon isn't in the lineup? Somebody needs to be fired. Immediately.

    They don't even have Stewart available in the pen tonight.

    Pathetic.

    Hey, I just noticed that the 2013 Ace Pitcher didn't give up any runs in the first inning.

    Way to go, champ!

    Gomez was excited about that catch. That's fun to see
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.
