GameChat – Twins @ Orioles #3, 6:05pm, FSN & am1500

THIS is an ‘interesting’ lineup.. and I mean that in the fullest Minnesota sense of the word. Morneau & Delmon are still unavailable to play tonight so you have this lineup (really? Repko as the 2 hitter?) and we have Casilla & Butera on the bench.. I have no words – and that’s bad for a blogger. All I can think of to say is this: It has to be better than last night right? How’s that for positive thinking?

Minnesota @ Baltimore
Span, CF Roberts, B, 2B
Repko, LF Markakis, RF
Kubel, RF Lee, D, 1B
Cuddyer, 1B Guerrero, DH
Thome, DH Scott, LF
Valencia, 3B Jones, A, CF
Hughes, L, 2B Reynolds, M, 3B
Holm, C Wieters, C
Tolbert, SS Andino, SS
Blackburn, P Britton, Z, P

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Minnesota 0 1 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 4 7 0
Baltimore 0 4 1 0 0 0 0 0 x 5 8 0

This is starting to get really, really old.

After that rough second inning, Nick Blackburn did well. Then again, you don’t get to just throw out your worst inning in Big Boy League. The bats, again, were pretty silent, but when you look up and down at this line up, I’m not sure what else you would expect.

Things, they gotta change.
