I'll answer that. Because range-wise Rowand can cover more of CF than Perez. Our past history with the Twins shows us runs are usally scare & the score remains pretty close. You want your best D team on the field in that type of game.

Hindsight is 20/20, but how do you play Konerko (who I know played well last night) against Kyle Loshe, who he is 1-29 against?

Bases were just juiced and of course, PK grounded out to Short. It would have been a double play, but there were 2 outs.

The only explanation I can come up with is that Ozzie wants his most experienced players out there for this game. Otherwise, there's no reason to play Konerko if he's that ineffective against Lohse.

Schoeneweis doesn't look like he has it tonight. He's already given up five hits.

All the 5 hits were extremely softly hit, the only hard hit ball was hunter's double play liner. meanwhile, the sox have smoked the ball right at guys.

The Sox need to do something about their bullpen.

Damaso has sucked all year. I think he gets better the more he's used, and he isn't being used much.

Ozzie is the dumbest offensive manager ever. Let Jose stay in to bat against a lefty with Uribe waiting, and then dont PR Hurt with 0 outs in the 8th. What an AWFUL game.

No wonder they whip us every year.

Any way you guys can start a second chatroom where the season isn't over every time the opponent throws a strike?

Guillen blew this one by keeping in Marte against Jones. I don't care about lefty-righty - Jones hit Schoeneweis all night so why shouldn't he hit Marte. Anyway, Marte clearly lost his cool when he didn't get a strike call. When Guillen went out to the mound I thought for sure he'd pull him. Leaving him in was the worst managing mistake he made all year. He fell behind Jones then fed him meat (that he should have whacked). Then he got a fat one to drop into left field. Terrible managing of a guy who clearly couldn't hit his spots.

Why leave Jose in to face fultz with uribe on the bench. And what about the two at bats by lee and then konerko in bottom of the 8th? Once again the bullpen ruins a good start by schoenweis. What is wrong with marte? I know its just one game, but some of the decisions just make me shake my head, both by manager and player. Marte throws a get me over fast ball 3-2 to JJ. This better stop or the twins will run away again like two years ago. Im not giving up but this lineup needs a change in it somewhere. Kyle Lohse has been brutal all year, but then he faces the sox and its a 6+ inning quality start. The sox make average pitchers look like stars. Gotta win the next two.

he didnt fall behind jones, he had him 1-2, and had him struck out, but the ump squeezed him.

What the hell was that? Why do Sox hitters try to bunt with two strikes? Sheesh!

Don't forget the waiting til 2 out to PR for Frank. And the not pHing Olivo or Perez to bunt in the 9th.

Twins are clutch.
We are not.
Ozzie is struggling.

Thats why we lose

As old as Sandy is, I would think that he would know better than to bunt on a two-strike count.

Nard
05-14-2004, 11:14 PM
And on the 0-1 pitch he was showing bunt ten seconds before it was even thrown... what the hell do ya think the pitcher is gonna do?

Patrick134

Amazing. that last strike call to willie was more off the plate than 2 big marte pitches that were called balls. And that "sox are not clutch " comment is a joke, if you've watched the sox all season.
