GameChat – Twins @ White Sox, 7:10pm

Let’s start our Monday with a little injury catch-up:

  1. Justin Morneau is on the bench after landing badly on his shoulder.
  2. Joe Mauer is still out of the lineup with a stiff neck – described as a hyper-extended neck.
  3. Cuddyer is playing through the sore wrist.
  4. Nishioka is finally back in the lineup not that I’m all that excited about that.
  5. Alexi Casilla begins his rehab assignment with Ft. Meyers tonight.

Anyone else kind of anxious about what could happen (or not happen) with this lineup tonight?

Another shutout. That makes a nice round 10 on the year. Nice work, guys.
With the Royals’ win over the Tigers, they pull within half a game of the Twins in the standings. That means that by this time tomorrow night, the Twins could be in last place in the AL Central… and falling fast. – JC

  1. I thought 25 games back was possible a month ago. Now I think the number could be 30 or more back by the end of the season.
