The spike: Day two

I listened in on Ozzie Guillen's pre-game talk today. The White Sox manager said he doesn't think A.J. Pierzynski intentionally stepped on Justin Morneau's foot yesterday. He did say, however, that he sent the Twins a message afterward - if there is a problem, take care of it on the field.

Certainly sounds tough, but it Guillen went on to say there are two ways to handle that type of situation: forget about it, or fight, and Morneau, obviously, did the latter. He also mentioned that he didn't really like the way Minnesota's bench was yelling and pointing at Pierzynksi after the incident.

It does seem that tonight will be quiet, and Ron Gardenhire said the whole thing is over and forgotten. You never know, though, with these teams. Check in with us later tonight. If something interesting happens, we'll let you know about it.

Oh, and Joe Mauer has shaved. Don't get excited, though. He said the beard was just getting too uncomfortable.

Finally, lineups ...
