Ugh...back in the office the day after the 4th and I have taken a total of 1 phone call all day so far. I am so bored that I am going to start the GDT thread and try to snap my streak of terrible luck with these things so far this year. Diamond on the mound for us today opposite Porcello who we usually handle pretty well. I will post the lineups whenever they come out.

Revere with a base hit.
A walk to Mauer gives up 1st and 2nd with one out.
Come on Doumit!
Doumit kills the rally with a GIDP.
I don't like him in the 4 hole...I think Plouffe would have been my choice followed by Morneau and then Doumit.
