    Game Thread: Twins@Angels 7/24 2:35PM

    Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

    LF Thomas
    2B Bernier
    DH Morneau
    C. Doumit
    RF Herrmann
    3B Plouffe
    1B Colabello
    CF Hicks
    SS Florimon

    Angels: SP Jered Weaver

    LF Shuck
    CF Trout
    DH Pujols
    1B Trumbo
    2B Kendrick
    3B Callaspo
    C. Iannetta
    RF Cowgill
    SS Aybar

    Things to think about today:

    1. Think about a Sweep... The Twins could sweep the series and leave happy as they head to Seattle.

    2. Think about Chris Herrman... A Grand Slam... How happy is he today. Only in the lineup because Joe's wife has a poor sense of timing.

    3. Think about Ryan Doumit... He wasn't hitting all that well and I told him to knock it off yesterday... He listened.

    4. Think about Mike Pelfrey... He's been pitching nicely of late... If he continues doing that... We could sweep.

    5. Think about addresses... I was looking for an address last night... When I got to the block and I was trying to read the house numbers for the correct address... I turned the radio down... Why did I do that?

    Because you had been rocking to the sweet licks of Tommy Tutone?

    Matt Maloney has brought his 0.00 ERA to New Britian and is currently pitching. He's back!

    Maybe this lineup is the secret to creating runs. fill it full of players you would never expect to be starting in the ML and boom, offensive explosion and "swagger." It's that kind of crazy thinking that will turn this team around!

    Is it just me or does anyone else not get the philosophy of having Bernier play? We already have an old player that plays well defensively. If we are bringing up old players then we should have brought up Richardson and seen what he could do as a back up. I understand the Calebello move. We can show off if he has any value before the trade deadline and see if he can be a future DH until prospects come up. Any other thoughts?

    I think, next year, Bernier could assume the role that Carroll occupies currently. A veteran on the bench that can play any infield position but does not need regular playing time and is also content to just sit on the bench and not wine about playing time.

    My only thoughts are of how much it will cost Joe for lipstick down the road as those twins grow up.
    Will this be another Sprewell moment where Joe will demand a new contract so he can afford to buy is daughters lipstick?

    I told my 2 year old last night that he needs to start working his game so that he can get one of the two.

    I was thinking that myself. This is indeed a lineup designed to strike fear into people's hearts. My knees are already trembling.

    I thought that is what Escobar's role would be, is he the one whining about playing time?

    I am not expecting a win today, but am still riding the wave of last night's victory.

    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Not to my knowledge, I meant in general younger players want and should be playing regularly. Sometimes that means going to AAA for some time.

    Justin struck out there but I think that it was a quality at bat because he made Weaver throw so many pitches.

    Weaver's fastball is topping out around 90 mph?

    With a name like J.B. Shuck, he should be from Iowa, but alas, he is from Ohio.

    I don't want to be overly critical, but that throw from Doumit was one of the worst throws I've ever seen from a major leaguer, let alone catcher.
    Bring a song and a smile for the banjo,
    Better get while the gettin's good
    Catch a ride to the end of the highway
    Where the neons turn to wood
