Taylor's Twins Talk

Focusing on the Twins, with a few ramblings on other things that catch my attention

General Stuff

A quick roundup before we all turn our attention to the weekend series against the White Sox.

1.) It looks like the White Sox are going to salvage a split of their 4 game series against the Royals today. With the Twins loss today, we'll go into the weekend series trailing Chicago by 2 games. I'm hoping for taking 2-of-3 against the Sox, which would put us a game back. A sweep, of course, would land us a game ahead of Chicago. Hey Boof . . . think ya can help us out on that front?

2.) Nick Punto wasn't ready to return to the lineup today, and the Twins website is reporting that the Twins won't go into the series with the White Sox at the status quo. If Punto is not going to be available for a couple of days, the Twins will call up an infielder (probably Terry Tiffee), and send down a pitcher (almost certainly Willie Eyre...is there any other choice?). My guess? Punto will be fine, and available to play this weekend.

3.) Justin Morneau's solo shot today gave him 104 RBI's on the season, moving him into 20th place all-time on the Twins single-season RBI list. With 5 more, he'll move into a tie for 15th.
