Morneau’s been shut down for the season… getting a cyst removed from his knee.
Kubel’s available only at DH.
Valencia’s a late scratch with the flu and Tosoni is out with the same bug.
The Twins and ‘Toons have completed the Thome trade with the Twins receiving $20,000 and no player. Nice to see the Pohlads have a little tip money now.
Here’s the lineup, consisting of whatever players are left standing.
|Fukudome, RF||Revere, CF|
|Kipnis, 2B||Plouffe, SS|
|Santana, C, 1B||Cuddyer, DH|
|Thome, DH||Parmelee, 1B|
|Duncan, LF||Hughes, L, 3B|
|Chisenhall, 3B||Dinkelman, 2B|
|Donald, SS||Benson, LF|
|Carrera, CF||Repko, RF|
|Marson, C||Butera, C|
|_Masterson, P||_Pavano, P|
Another game, another early lead blown, another loss.
Jason Repko took an 88 mph fastball to the head and we all hope Jason’s OK.
