I just checked the 12 Days in June thread.....I predicted the Bucs would go 1-2 with the Twins

After tonight, I will be very happy with that! :?

Ugly baseball will do that.

It will be interesting to see how we adjust to that confounded turf. Balls were rocketing by the middle infielders like they were standing still. Our staff ERA would probably be about 8.37 if we had to play there half the year! Not a good place to be if you're a ground ball pitcher. The Minny batters were more than happy to oblige us on grounders. Maholm seemed to settle a bit after the first two but couldn't buy a freakin' out on a grounder. If not for the double play balls that the baseball gods mercifully rained down upon us it could have been a 20 run game for the Twins.

I was resensitized (is that a word?) to turf last night and didn't like it.

It is a very different game on turf. We should trade Nyjer to the Twins. He would have a lot more doubles and triples.

With the DH being in play for this series, I think it would be a wonderful time to have Morgan in the 9 hole, and put Freddy back in the 2nd spot...

McCutchen CF
Freddy 2B
Andy 3B
Adam 1B
Monroe DH
Young RF
Catcher
Jack SS
Morgan LF

I agree. They should try some different line ups out during interleague.
