Saturday? What the hell am I doing here? You guys have game threads? Why aren't you out, living life, dancing like no one is watching? Oh, right, because that stuff is bullcrap. Watch the game, won't you? Here's who's playing:

HEAVERS:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Scott Diamond 10-5 18 18 1 1 0 0 121.1 126 47 40 12 18 68 2.97 1.19


One of the 1.5 reliable starting pitchers at present (Deduno is the .5). If they don't win tonight...


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Jason Vargas 13-8 25 25 2 0 0 0 169.1 148 68 67 26 43 107 3.56 1.13


Per Joe C., Vargas is 6-1 with a 1.88 ERA in his last nine starts.

Lineups and notes after the jump jump:

YARD-LEAVERS (courtesy Joe C. and Rhett B.):

Twins

Carroll 2B, Mastroianni CF, Mauer C, Willingham DH, Morneau 1B, Doumit LF, Plouffe 3B, Carson RF, Florimon SS

Mariners

1. Dustin Ackley, 2B
2. Trayvon Robinson, LF
3. Jesus Montero, C
4. Miguel Olivo, DH
5. Kyle Seager, 3B
6. Justin Smoak, 1B
7. Casper Wells, RF
8. Michael Saunders, CF
9. Brendan Ryan, SS

NOTES:

  • Rhett B. Tweets that Ben Revere is available off the bench tonight and will likely be back in the lineup tomorrow. Span is unlikely, which means he should probably just go on the DL for chrissakes.
  • Joe C. Tweets that the options for Nick Blackburn are "Rochester, bullpen or status quo."
  • One more Tweet, via John D. Shipley: Twins haven't scored an earned run off the starting pitcher the last three games. Yeesh.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
