That, and the fact that Justin Morneau is in a major slump at the worst time of the season. Maybe the off day will have done him some good. We can only hope. He's just one RBI behind Hamilton, so it's not like he's not going to be focused (aside from the do-or-die status of tonight's match up).
The lineups haven't come out yet, and I expect to see them around 5:00 from Star Tribune's web site. That's usually where they pop up first. Joe Christensen has been great about getting them up all season long.
- White Sox starting pitcher John Danks is 2-3 with a 6.88 ERA in seven games vs. the Twins this year.
- Winds should be around 10-15 mph blowing OUT of the stadium (dead center) at the Cell this evening. Blackburn needs to keep the ball down all night.
- Justin Morneau is batting .158 (6-for-38) in his past 10 games.
- My friend Ryan Wilson is a huge Sox fan. Anything you write in response to this post will go in a mass email to his inbox tonight.
Enjoy the game... pray it won't be the final one... GO TWINS!!!!!
