Mastroianni, Mauer and Willingham due up.
If I were Walt, I'd do everything I could to keep Willingham from getting on the Twins plane. I'm not though.
I have a feeling Chapman will be in to face Mauer.
Chapman in to pitch.
I'd even make try to make a deal for Josh before he hits here in the ninth.
Great start by Leake: 8IP, 5H, 2ER, 0BB, 5K
Chapman keeps Span and Morneau on the bench. Probably makes the most sense.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Only thing is, I'd get a righty, Arredondo, up in the pen. Just in case.
