Know Thine Enemy: The Good Phight
With a win tonight, the Twins have the potential to crawl out of the AL central dweller and on to the foot of the basement stairs, known as fourth place in the AL central.
And yes--Thome is batting fourth again.
Your starting pitchers:

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - P.J. Walters 2-1 6 6 1 0 0 0 36.2 38 18 18 7 14 23 4.42 1.42

P.J. has struggled in his last two starts, giving up a combined 9 runs over 9 1/3 innings. Luckily, the Phillies offense has also been struggling, so hopefully Walters can keep the ball in the park (unless it is a ball hit by Jim Thome, that can leave the park).


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Cole Hamels 8-3 12 12 0 0 0 0 83.0 70 29 27 9 17 86 2.93 1.05

Despite a stellar start to the season, Cole Hamels has struggled as of late, giving up a combined 8 runs over 12 2/3 innings in his past two games. So he's kind of like the rich man's P.J. Walters, if you will.
