Know Thine Enemy: Bless You Boys
- Byron Buxton re-injured his wrist yesterday.
- Kubel sits today with a lefty on the mound.
- When Mauer is available to play first, or when Kubel is in the linep so that Parmelee could potentially slide to first, you have to wonder if Gardy would start giving Colabello a few more days off here and there considering his recent struggles.
- With Swarzak going four innings last night, the Twins will lean on Deduno to deliver a strong and efficient performance. The bullpen could probably piece together four innings if they needed to, but you have to think six-plus innings is the goal.
