Team Strib just arrived at Yankee Stadium. The tarp is coming off as I write this but there is rain in the forecast.
These modern stadiums usually handle rain well. So we expect to get nine innings in. But there’s nothing that gets a pressbox buzzing like the chances of travel plans blowing up because of a rained out game.
Twins will work out at the Dome tomorrow at 10 a.m. BTW.
Here’s the Twins lineup:
1. Denard Span, RF
2. O-Cab, SS
3. St. Joe, C
4. Ku-Boom, DH
5. Cuddy, 1B
6. Delmon Young, LF
7. Go-Go, CF
8. Matt Tolbert, 3B
9. Nick Punto, 2B
Pitching: Nick Blackburn, RHP

Update: Just got done with Gardy. Jose Morales is not in the lineup tonight but the manager has no problems using him as a pinch hitter.
Morales look nervous at the plate in the last two games at the Dome, leading to Brendan Harris starting at DH in Game 1. Morales needs to get into a game and get hit so he can feel better about himself.
Jesse Crain told Gardy that he felt pretty good today. But Gardy will check with Crain and the rest of his team after warmups to make sure he can call on them if needed.
Gardy was Gardy when asked about getting Carlos Gomez in the starting lineup: “Go-Go brings speed, covers a lot of ground and…irritates people. Sometimes me.”
That got a chuckle out of the media horde.
