Let's get this up before this afternoon's game: This figures to be a tough game for Ron Gardenhire to manage his bullpen.
Glen Perkins and Matt Capps each worked the previous two days. Joe Nathan pitched Wednesday, and I don't think he's worked consecutive days. Kevin Slowey had a six-inning stint three days ago. I would think Gardy would be loath to use any of them.
Which leave him with three available relievers: Alex Burnett, Phil Dumatrait and Anthony Swarzak. None of them should have Gardenhire's confidence.
