So I was late enough with the post information yesterday that I didn’t choose to cover all the roster actions that took place since Thursday. The Twins did a LOT over the last couple days and you might have missed it. We sent Manship and Perdomo back down to AAA, we brought up Matt Carson which required that we lose a 40 man roster spot so Rene Tosoni was outrighted, and Swarzak was activated. It’s all very confusing but the numbers end up that we’re finally back to 12 pitchers instead of 13 and we now have someone other than Lexi or Butera on the bench.
Of course we still have some issues – both Revere and Span are still out of the lineup. This makes 6 days for Span if my recollection is correct. Let’s hope that Scotty can keep the boys in the game since our offensive production at the top of the order is somewhat diminished.
|Carroll, 2B||Ackley, 2B|
|Mastroianni, CF||Robinson, T, LF|
|Mauer, C||Montero, C|
|Willingham, DH||Olivo, DH|
|Morneau, 1B||Seager, 3B|
|Doumit, LF||Smoak, 1B|
|Plouffe, 3B||Wells, C, RF|
|Carson, RF||Saunders, M, CF|
|Florimon, SS||Ryan, SS|
|Diamond, P||Vargas, P|
I hate losing to a walk off sac fly. We had some great efforts out there on the pitching mound and defensively; offensively, we just didn’t have enough production. Every time we got the lead, they managed to come back and tie it up.
It definitely didn’t end the way we would like. See earlier post: It’s HARD to be a Twins Fan.
