This game is super early, and I'm doing the thread in advance, so if anything changes between now and game time...sorry. The Twins look to win the rubber match today against the first place Cleveland Indians (still sounds wrong). The lineups for this series have been interesting, to say the least, and I expect that will happen again today. Pitchers, lineups, and notes after the jump.

Pavano and his still-stacheless face will go for win #101 today. Win number 100 was pretty nice for Pavano, throwing a CG for the victory. Let's hope there's some more good things from him today.

Masterson kind of looks like a man-child, and it freaks me out a bit. Also, he's walked a lot of batters so far this year. If the Twins are patient at the plate, good things might happen. Or...you know, Delmon might swing at every first pitch he sees. Who knows!
