Kevin "Malingerer" Slowey v Brad Penny
Per Joe C:
- Gardy must really hate Plouffe's defense at shortstop. Is it really worse than Nishioka's?
- Slowey should really like the outfield defense today. I don't know how good Tosoni is at LF, though TZL rates him as +3 so far this year. Nonetheless, with Revere in CF and Benson in RF, this is going to be a no doubles night.
- This is the first time Mauer has caught since August 20.
