    Game Thread: Twins@Yankees 7/12 6:05PM

    Minnesota: SP Scott "Screech" Diamond

    2B Dozier
    RF Parmelee
    C Mauer
    1B Morneau
    DH Doumit
    3B Plouffe
    LF Arcia
    CF Hicks
    SS Florimon

    New York: SP Hiroki "Pick a Nick Name" Kuroda

    CF Gardner
    RF Suzuki
    2B Cano
    DH Wells
    LF Almonte
    1B Overbay
    SS Nunez
    3B Cruz
    C Stewart

    The Twins have lost 11 out of 12... Big Deal... I need new Windows in my house and I've been losing money on my heating and cooling bills as a result for years. That losing streak makes the Twins current streak look like a walk in the park.

    The Twins have plenty of left handed hitters to take a shot at the short RF porch and a right hander on the mound. Of course... Not striking out in double digits will help a bunch. Diamond the ports idea wil toe the rubber for the Twins.

    The idea being, we're switching from Margaritas to Ports? Sure, it's after dinner.

    I love Auto Correct... I'm not gonna correct the auto correct. The randomness of port sider becoming many things is interesting.

    So, what are the chances they actually win one of these games?

    Maybe if you made a financial commitment to the product you would see a better return. Or... is that trolling?

    Don't blame the front office (wife); the manager clearly left the SW (starting windows) in too long.

    I can't wait to see how this series turns out.

    I tried to calculate the odds. Unfortunately, my excel spreadsheet just returned a value of "James, You're going to want to have a drink before this number is displayed."
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Nothing about "heat death of the universe" was mentioned? Lucky.

    Actually, I like the lineup. Packed with LH bats, perhaps someone will find the short porch in RF, maybe a few someones.

    At a certain level I don't care how the 27 outs come about, so long as we have about 16 additional plate appearances (and only a couple LOB).

    Let me amend that. My main hope is that the opponents tonight make 27 outs of their own. I will consider that good.

    Yes, but you really should clarify by which team...

    Exactly what I was thinking, I especially like Parmelee in the 2-hole in front of Mauer, Parm has an excellent chance to go deep tonight.

    The Yanks get a lead off homer in the bottom of the tenth?
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    I was meditating and had a vision of some things that will transpire in tonight's game.

    Although this vision was somewhat hazy, the certainty I took from this vision was that two players of Japanese descent will lead their team to victory.

    This vision did not indicate if it was the Twins or Yankees who would win.
    I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky.
