    Re: Sox/Twins Wednesday night game thread

    We last swept the Twins in Minnesota on July 6th 2000, over 9 shortstops ago before tonight and without the muddy chicken, who gets a scheduled day off. Lester comes in after a tough loss against the Yankees, pitching six innings of three run ball while striking out seven, but was one the wrong side of a 3-2 final score. The twins bring the struggling Nick Blackburn, like all the twins pitchers, a 4.58 ERA and a 7-9 record. In his last start against the Pale Hose, he was tagged for four runs in 5 1/3 innings, walking six and striking out only one.

    Lets bring out the brooms

    totally a check swing. dont know about payback, umpires frequently get check swings wrong in my book in both directions. but then i'm watching on vide.. they dont have the luxury. and that was a check.

    More great baserunning, but at least he let Jake get to second. Gotta give him that.

    It's an out either way, except the faster Ells makes it to second.  Aviles did a good job of staying in the rundown.

    Joe West more concerned about the length of the games....how ironic is it joe torre called francona about the time of the sox/yanks games.?? Francona said he'd talk to beckett...like he'll care

    More sloppy baserunning (a common theme over the past couple of weeks), and more at-bat give-aways by our boys.  Lester better get better quickly, because this we're making this 5 ERA pitcher look like Cy Young.  Yeah, I'm whinning, but we should be killing this guy.

    From Pete Abraham earlier today:

    "Blackburn is 2-1, 4.00 in five career games against the Sox. He allowed one run over 6.1 innings at Fenway on May 9."

    As I just posted, Blackburn has had success against our guys.  Sometimes certain pitchers just give certain teams fits regardless of their ERA against the rest of the league.

    Lester settling down, but I think Blackburn may give us trouble. Need to eek out 2 or 3 here.

    It was a comebacker and Ellsbury ended up on 2nd.  It worked out the best way possible.

    THIS GUY SUCKS. go back to ump school. If an engineering school graduated the same percentage of terrible students as umpire schools do the world would explode
