Monday Morning Breakfast & Baseball: Liriano Pushed Back

Here's what's making Twins news on this Monday morning.

Twins push Liriano back to Thursday - MLB.com
Francisco Liriano was scheduled to start tonight, but with Nick Blackburn being called up from the minors and on track to start Monday as well, the team decided to keep Blackburn on schedule and move Liriano back to get some extra rest.

Lefthanded relief help might be hard to find - StarTribune.com
Apart from Glen Perkins - who has been worse against lefties than righties in his career - the Twins don't currently have a lefty in the bullpen. La Velle says the team might have trouble finding help from elsewhere. (Might we suggest Pat Neshek, he of the .202 career BA against vs. lefties?)

Lee column: Is it heaven? Nope, it’s the heavenly Target Field - St Cloud Times
You wouldn't think that any local paper would still be running "Target Field: It's Pretty Awesome" articles, here in late August, but the St. Cloud Times is there.

First look: Angels make initial visit to Target Field - The Orange County Register
The O.C. Register at least has an excuse: this is their first chance to see the new park. Check out their photo essay, including the requisite SoCal shots at how fat we all are.
