The Twins pounded out three hits today. That might be a season best.

2-0 losers to the Yankes, but the Royals are about to win again.

Newsworthy nugget from that just-completed contest:
Twinks pitcher Rick Reed left the game in the fourth with a strained right groin.

That might not be a good thing for us because Santana was dominant in relief. I've always thought he's their best hurler.

Still the best "hurler" in sports is James "Big Cat" Williams. :D:

Great... this means that the Sox have a good chance to be the first to lose to Detroit. I hate that.

Boomer's line 9IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 6K, 96 pitches, 72 strikes...

He has an 0.53 ERA this year with a 2-0 record...

Wells always prided himself on pitching 9. Those numbers remind me of the game he pitched for us in Cleveland in 2001. 88 pitches, or something like that. I believe the coaches made copies of that performance as an example for the younger pitchers to watch. I guess Garland lost his copy.

I hate that too, but look at it this way; this is a great time to face the Tigers, and while they might get their first win against us, we should take the series. And it doesn't look like Garland is pitching in that series so we have a good chance at the sweep.

I take it Garland is the newest member of the Irrational Doghouse?

Man, you'd think he went out there and kicked some babies or something. Maybe I really don't see what everyone else does, but he hasn't been THAT bad.

I've preferred Wright over Garland since late last season, and Jon has done nothing since to show that he's the better pitcher. Obviously I'll take a healthy JGar over an injured Wright, but if over the next couple weeks Jon continues to cruise in neutral, he deserves to be demoted to the bullpen to make room for Wright. That might be the best place for him and his short attention span anyway.

I see nothing wrong with Garland. He clearly was superior to Kip Wells, who of course always crapped his pants. :smile:

What concerns me is the four walks. I didn't catch the game, so I don't know if he was getting squeezed by the umpire or what, but four walks in 5+ innings is a lot.

rooney and farmer made it sound as though he was getting squeezed at times.
