Monday: Slowey vs Lewis
Tuesday: Liriano vs Jackson
Wednesday: Baker vs Lee

6:05 starts for all three.

Sox will face the same three lefties the last weekend.

It should be noted that Mr. Lee's two losses this year came at Minnesota and at Cincinnati. He started a came in Chicago that the White Sox won in extra innings, although he did not figure in the decision. With two outs in the bottom of the tenth, Ramirez tied the game with a home run. Nine pitches later, after Wise stole second, Cabrera ended the game with a two-out single.

Cabrera and Wise sort of switched roles last night. Funny how people continue to doubt them.

In any case, it would be nice to see the Twins lose, but the priority is on winning in New York.

Oh god, we have to face Lee in the last game of the season? **** me!

On another note...

Who are Lewis and Jackson?

EDIT: Lewis shutout the Orioles in his first start this year in 8 innings along with 3 hits, impressive to say the least. Can he do that again tonight?

On one hand, the Twins have been scoring runs. On the other hand, they haven't been doing it consistently enough to win much. Not since Aug. 27 have the Twins won scoring fewer than seven runs. Since Aug. 21, the Twins have only won one game scoring less than six runs. Over that span, they are 9-13. In all but two of those losses, they held the lead at some point in the game at a point when it was official. Their last recorded relief save came on Aug. 27 in a 6-5 win in Seattle.

That doesn't mean the Twins can't win a 1-0 game. But such are the trends.

I think at this point the schedule is basically even, which favors us. The Twins had every opportunity to take care of the bottom feeders in the West and Central and even the O's, but they didn't get the job done.

Looks like Cuddyer is back in the lineup as a starter today. That may be a boost, but it could hurt them as well. He hasn't seen a lot of action lately. Hopefully it will take him time to warm up.

The saving grace at the moment is the Twins bullpen is just as awful as ours. Tribe load bases, no out off Guerrier. The Blowfish (Reyes) coming in.

According to Timberwolf, the Indians have a chance of winning the division, so should we really be cheering for them??? :tongue:

If you want to talk about a garbage bullpen, the Twins thread is the place to be, considering they have only one save since Aug. 21 and have held the lead in all but, now, three games since then, despite now having a 9-14 record in that span.

I suppose, though, if you want to complain about the White Sox bullpen, considering that the Twins bullpen didn't give up any runs in Monday night's loss, you're in the right thread.

Things are tough all over.

Twins have Liriano going up against Zach Jackson tonight (0-3 5.63 ERA). It doesn't look good, but hopefully Liriano throws a lot of pitches and the Twins bullpen blows it once again.

Just 9 HRs for Mauer ... surprising.

Brian Anderson has a higher slugging percentage than him this year. Mauer is a good singles hitter, but not much more than that. He doesn't hit nearly as many doubles as you think he might.

It does help though that he's a career .354 hitter with 2 outs, RISP and has a BB:K ratio of 3-1.

Wow, the Indians ****ing blow. I mean, really bad. It would have been really demoralizing for the Twins to lose this game and lose ground on the Sox with their ace pitcher going.

It will be much more demoralizing when, after fighting back from a 7 run deficit to take the lead, their immortal closer blows it in walk off style. Lets do it, Tribe.

In that Rays 2-1 thriller over Boston, Longoria was 0-for-4 with 3 Ks and an error. Rookie of the Year, maybe, but not tonight.

The Red Sox paid for not bringing in Papelbon.

Longoria has been great, but he missed an entire month. Unless he has a huge final two weeks, it should be Alexei's award to lose.Yes, but that would make too much sense. You see, Quentin won't get the MVP because he missed the last 3 weeks of the season, and an MVP has to be there in crunch time. However, with Longoria, the Rays stuggled (somewhat) while he was out, so it shows how good and valuable he is!

Best case Cleveland wins of course but even if the Twins win here their pen has been taxed a fair amount this game and this could hurt them down the stretch.

Losing here after being down 7 and taking the lead could really send that young team in complete tailspin, especially since their schedule has just turned much more difficult starting with Lee tomorrow.

Nathan is still pretty good....getting him the ball has been the issue.

He has blown three of his last four save opportunities. But bad defense has been a factor in that.

The Twins have had a lot of save opportunites since Aug. 21. Nathan has had just two and blown them both, but any time a reliever loses the lead (unless the lead comprises to many runs to be considered a save opportunity), it is considered a blown save. The Twins have blown a lot of saves since Aug. 21. Even then, Guardado gave up a hit with a runner in scoring positition that would have tied the game but for a strong throw to the plate.

Nathan certainly isn't as invinceable as he's been but I believe two of the 3 blown saves you alluded to were on unearned runs...one of which was with 2 outs...not entirely Nathan's fault.
