Warning: Today will be a crazy day as I finish up a Sunday project.
Many of you have sent e-mails recently with questions about the Twins or journalism or places to eat in Fort Myers, but it seems like I’ve been in scramble mode ever since Joe Crede joined the Twins. Don’t think I’m blowing you off, it’s just been real busy. I arrived at the park yesterday at 7 a.m. and didn’t get home until 6:25 p.m. from Sarasota. I did manage to sneak over to Shoeless Joe’s for dinner as I watched the Illini dine on some Gopher meat.
Enough about me. How about Joe Crede? He’ll be in a Twins uniform for the first time today.
He’s batting third in today’s lineup against Ian Kennedy and the Yankees. I haven’t seen the Yanks’ lineup yet, but the Twins’ batting order goes like this:
1. Go-Go, CF. 2. Casilla, 2B. 3. Joe C., DH. 4. MVP ’06, 1B. 5. Cuddy, RF. 6. Young, LF. 7. Red-Dog, C. 8. Harris, 3B. 9. Punto, SS. Pitching: Scott Baker.
Brian Duensing, Kevin Mulvey and Rob Delaney are scheduled to pitch. Can’t wait to see Delaney.
Here’s the Yankees’ batting order:
1. Brett Gardner, CF. 2. Cody Ransom, 2B. 3. Nick Swisher, 1B. 4. Jorge Posada, DH. 5. Xavier Nady, RF. 6. Melky Cabrera, LF. 7. Angel Berroa, SS. 8. Justin Leone, 3B. 9. Francisco Carvelli, C. Pitching: RHP Ian Kennedy, with RHP Eric Hacker, RHP Andrew Brackman, LHP Wilkin De La Rosa and others scheduled to appear.
