Having seen reference to the Sox' all-time record in the Metrodome in one thread and a question from a younger dude about the nature of Sox futility there I thought I'd look up some info on Baseballreference.com--here's the scoop on the Sox at the Baggydome House of Horrors since the dawn of the new century:

2000: Sox (92-70), MN (69-93): 4-2*
2001: Sox (83-79), MN (85-77): 2-7**
2002: Sox (81-81), MN (94-67): 3-7**
2003: Sox (86-76), MN (90-72): 2-7**
2004: Sox (83-79), MN (92-70): 6-4
2005: Sox (99-63), MN (83-79): 6-3
2006: Sox (90-72), MN (96-66): 5-5**
2007: Sox (72-90), MN (79-83): 4-5
2008: 1-8**

Overall, 2000-2008: 33-48


*Under old schedule arrangement Sox and Twins met only 12 times in 2000.

**Sox swept by Twins in final meeting of season.

Bottom line--there is some history here over the last deacde, particularly late in the season--the schedule-maker seems to like to schedule the Sox up in Minnesota right at or near the end of the season and it rarely bodes well for our Pale Hose.
