Game 9: Pre-Game Notes

11:45 AM — Going to try to streamline things a bit here and unclutter the game threads.  So I’m going to use the tried and true “Thunder Thoughts” method of a pre-game thread, an in-game thread and a post-game thread.

With that said, I spoke to Travis Anderson, Sparky Lyle and Ryan Freel about Freel’s comment last night that Anderson was the best hitting coach he’s ever had.  It’s nice to stumble on a story like that, and I think I got some good stuff that you guys will see in a couple days.

Freel joked before our chat about why I was even talking to him considering he wasn’t in the lineup…and he wasn’t kidding.  Lineups are in, and here they are…
