Inge catching, Thames in left

Greetings from Minneapolis, where there isn’t a cloud in the sky and it’s still pretty cold and windy.

Brandon Inge is behind the plate again today. The plan was to catch him one of these final two games on the trip, but with Pudge feeling some soreness in his left hip area, Saturday made sense. Marcus Thames, 3-for-8 with two homers for career against Scott Baker, is in left. Other than that, the lineup is the same, including Placido Polanco.

The lineup:

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Sheff, DH
  4. Ordonez, RF
  5. Cabrera, 1B
  6. Guillen, 3B
  7. Renteria, SS
  8. Thames, LF
  9. Inge, C

For the Twins, who are starting Craig Monroe in center with Carlos Gomez out:

  1. Brendan Harris, 2B
  2. Mike Lamb, 3B
  3. Joe Mauer, C
  4. Justin Morneau, 1B
  5. Michael Cuddyer, RF
  6. Jason Kubel, DH
  7. Delmon Young, LF
  8. Craig Monroe, CF
  9. Adam Everett, SS

thames should be our everyday LF. JJones isn’t worth a penny of his contract.
