Clint Hurdle on Snider over Pie, Liriano vs LH, Marte, and More

Clint Hurdle met with the media this afternoon, discussing tonight's game, some of the roster decisions, and the impact of players like Starling Marte, Justin Morneau, and Clint Barmes. Below is the transcript.

There were a lot of people around town that weren't able to sleep. What kind of emotions did you have coming into today?

CLINT HURDLE: I had a very trying evening. I had to help Maddie with some fifth grade math homework, then I was challenged with two games of chess with my son Christian who just joined two weeks ago the chess club at school. Then it was the welcoming of family and friends coming in from different parts. I went to bed at 10:30. I got up at 6:15. I'm good to go.

Are you smarter than a fifth grader or Bobby Fischer?

CLINT HURDLE: I give it my best. Christian and I played to a draw a couple times. I'm relearning the game of chess. Maddie's got me in math.

Can you give us your lineup? You have a couple of spots that could have gone either way.
