Pudge out

His right thumb is still sore, so he’s out of tonight’s lineup. Hoping to play Saturday. Craig Monroe’s batting third again, with Vance Wilson catching and batting ninth.

Here in Minneapolis …

Forecast highs of 99 degrees today, 94 tomorrow, then 99 again Sunday. Excessive heat warning all weekend. With cold weather in April and this kind of weather in the summer, sorry, but I like having the dome right about now.
