GameChat – Yankees @ Twins #4, 1:10

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

There’s a part of me that hopes all of you have something better to do on this holiday than hang out on your computer and chat online about the Twins game with the Yankees, but we’re going to open up the GameChat, just in case.

Babs and Eric are, I believe, planning on attending the game in person. My plans are a bit uncertain at the moment, but there’s a pretty good chance they include spending at least a little bit of time at the ballpark in Cedar Rapids. Game time here isn’t until 5:00 though and it’s looking like a sell-out, so I may have to find a hole in the fence to sneak in through.

Here’s today’s lineup as the Twins try, once again, to win at least one lousy game from the Yankees. Oswaldo Arcia has moved in to the number 3 spot in Ron Gardehire’s batting order. That’s interesting.



Suzuki, I, CF Dozier, 2B
Almonte, LF Mauer, C

Hafner, DH Morneau, DH
Wells, V, RF Plouffe, 3B

Everyone who was shocked that the Twins were swept by the Yankees, raise your hand. Yeah… me either.
