Wait, wait. Don't tell me...

May 30 at Minnesota Twins

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Dog Food
2006 still hasn't ended...

Short Take:   Garland not sharp, defense and 'pen don't help matters as Twins sweep Sox.

It happens every year. You don't know when it's going to happen and it's always in the back of your mind. But there's not much to be said about the annual Twins sweep of our Sox. It's a combo of lousy baseball making our team look like a utter joke on the baseball field. Even during our glorious 2005 season season the Twins managed to sweep our tails. They seem to enjoy that more than winning a playoff series.

Finally, our hitting wasn't awful against a Twins starter this afternoon. The Sox tagged Scott Baker for six runs in the first three innings capped off by a Rob Mackowiak two run shot making it a 6-1 Sox lead.

But, much like his last start, Jon Garland was shaky. Three walks to Twins hitters in the bottom of the third set up disaster for Garland when Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter knocked the three walks in cutting the Sox lead to 6-4.

The Twins eventually tied the game in the sixth inning with two runs off Garland. Meanwhile, the Sox bats went completly dead after Scott Baker left the game. A real lockdown bullpen came in and handcuffed Sox bats keeping all 10 Sox hits in the first three innings! Thats what we call a bullpen!

All of this adds up to another Sox loss. Instead of getting our heads bashed in like the past two games, today the Twins would load the bases on a bad throw off a double play ground ball to Paul Konerko. After Boone Logan got the second out on one pitch, Ozzie called on David Aardsma to get the Sox in extra innings. He did the exact opposite. Aardsma didn't even make Torii "so gansta" Huner take the bat of his shoulder, walking him on four pitches for a walk win for the Twins, literally.

It gets worse friends! The loss drops the Sox to 24-24 and into fourth place. Fun times, uh? The dome tour moves to Toronto tomorrow when the Sox go at it with the Blue Jays. Mark Buehrle will try and stop the Sox 4-game skid against Roy Halladay. Game time is at 6:07pm and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.

Back to the Grind Update:
 Grinded to the tune of a loss is all.

Rob Mackowiak

Thought he put the game out of reach with his 2-run homer. That was wishful thinking.
