    Game Thread: Royals@Twins 8/1 12:10PM

    Royals: SP James Shields

    LF Gordon
    1B Hosmer
    DH Butler
    C Perez
    CF Cain
    2B Tejada
    3B Moustakas
    RF Maxwell
    SS Escobar

    Twins: SP Scott Diamond

    2B Dozier
    SS Bernier
    DH Mauer
    1B Morneau
    C Doumit
    3B Plouffe
    RF Herrmann
    CF Hicks
    LF Thomas

    Things to Think About:

    1. Think about Morneau... He's still here... OK Justin... You have two months before your contract expires... Let's start hitting some bombs.

    2. Think about Butera... He's Gone... PTNBL or Cash coming our way!!!

    3. Think about Willingham and Arcia... If Plouffe and Morneau are not hitting bombs... Who is supposed to hit bombs? Willingham and Arcia are the top two thoughts that jump into my head... Willingham is hurt and Arcia is in AAA. The Hammer will be back eventually... Could we see Arcia back sometime soon?

    4. Think about Colabello... He could hit some bombs but he is probably trying to do too much right now. He's not in the lineup today... He had a pinch hit strikeout when we needed a run driven in from third yesterday. When you are a 55 year old power hitting rookie... It has to be tough... You are not a project... You have to produce right now. How can you not show up in Minnesota and not try to do too much. There is no time to watch him develop into something.

    5. Think about Apartments... They are kinda stuck together in one building... They are not "Apart" at all... At least... I'm pretty sure I could hear my neighbor on the other side of the wall when I used to live in one.
    A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

    It's on mlb.tv but why anyone would pay just to watch this game is beyond me.

    If you already have a subscription that's one thing but twinsbaseball.com calls it a mlb.tv exclusive.

    Oh, and if anyone is wondering, it isn't on the KC network either.

    As I looked at the lineup my first thought was when was the last time the 7-9 hitters in a line-up were your outfielders.

    Hermann airmails the cutoff man, everyone tags, double play out of order. 1 out, runners on 2nd and 3rd

    Come on Hermann

    Well Maxwell's RBI single puts the DP back in order. At the small cost of a run. Phew

    Yuck. That has to be an interesting but depressing series of events. What Happened?

    A ball that ends up going over the fence and you've never even suspect that it had a chance listening to Meathead on the radio.

    Conspiracy Theory: Morneau purposefully didn't swing for the fences so he wouldn't be traded. Now he'll start belting homers every 10 at bats.

    Hicksie inside-outed a ball into the left field corner, at the track, but Gordon caught it and got it back in quickly. Also Morneau was the guy on 3rd base so he wasn't tagging unless it got over the fence.

    Cletus hit one to the 403 sign but it was caught.

    Stupid work meeting getting the way of me listening to the game. I hate when that happens.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.
