Minnesota Twins Game 34: Lineups and First Impressions

Joe Mauer is not in the lineup again, but Aaron Hicks and Chris Parmelee are here, so I think that’s a fair trade. Right? Why would we want a guy that tracks as a Hall of Famer, if he could ever stay healthy, while we could have a couple guys who can’t seem to figure out major league pitching? Oh, we’re laughing through the tears.

Minnesota Twins (15-18) Lineup:

Brian Dozier 2B

Kurt Suzuki C

Trevor Plouffe 3B

Chris Colabello 1B

Jason Kubel LF

Eduardo Nunez DH

First Impressions

Justin Verlander? More like… The Twins Are Screwed-lander.

Eduardo Nunez is DHing. Okay then.

Danny Santana is in the starting lineup. At least, we might have gotten that through someone’s head.

Hey, Kurt Suzuki is back in the two-hole!
