Is this Game 1 or Game 2 against the White Sox? I don't know, I could argue for both of them. Regardless, this is only the third game the Twins have played this entire week, and their first game since Wednesday. There should be no excuses if anyone is feeling sick or tired, right? Right?

By the way, if you're interested in playing "Where's Oswaldo?," he's playing DH and batting 7th today. Ryan Doumit, who has been struggling this year, sits in favor of him. This also pushes Chris Parmelee all the way up to batting 5th.
