    Game Thread: Rays@Twins 9/13 7:10PM

    Rays: SP Chris Archer

    LF Dejesus
    2B Zobrist
    1B Loney
    3B Longoria
    DH Johnson
    RF Myers
    CF Jennings
    C Molina
    SS Escobar

    Twins: SP Kevin Correia

    CF Presley
    C Pinto
    2B Dozier
    DH Arcia
    3B Plouffe
    1B Parmelee
    LF Mastroianni
    RF Thomas
    SS Escobar

    Things to Think about:

    1. Think about Escobar... Both Shortstops today have the last name Escobar and both are batting ninth. No real point to make... Just Think about it... Would You!!!

    2. Think about Chris Archer... Archer was a former Cubs Prospect that the Rays acquired with a handful of others in the deal of Garza... We got Delmon Young in our deal for Garza. I didn't like that trade personally.

    3. Think about Joe Maddon... Everybody loves Joe... Creative manager who puts out multiple lineups with players playing different positions every night. He's got good pitching so he wins... Or is that creativity?

    4. Think about Ron Gardenhire... Just 5 wins from 1,000... Take that JOE!!!

    5. Think about Research... I've requested a research grant to discover if research causes cancer in Rats. I'm just gonna research them and see what happens.

    6. Think about lawn mowers, again, and how they can frustrate you. Now multiply that level of frustration by about 100 and you've got a Twins game.

    7. Think about stress-induced heart attacks. See #6.

    I guess we can call the area between 3rd and 2nd the Esco-barrio tonight.

    No need to respond, I've given myself a 30 minute ban for that one.

    Does anyone think that Gardenhire is going to get his 5 wins yet this year?

    8. Think about Joe actually winning games in the playoffs and taking the Rays to the World Series, take that Gardy!

    All right, so the Hunt for .500 fell through.

    So how about a new Hunt for..........70 wins??

    Yes, my mistake. If only I did not have that darn day job my timing would be better.

    Florimon was a starting AAA IL All Star last year at SS and was voted "Best Infield Arm" in the IL, as well. But you're right, he's probably only a marginally better glove than Escobar, maybe a little more range along with a better arm.

    I'm okay with that. That's worth the ribbon for just participating.

    I'm sort of torn about this series with the Rays. I mean, of course I don't want to lose ... I never want to lose ... but I'd rather see the Rays in over the Yankees; maybe even over the Rangers.
