GameChat – White Sox @ Twins #3, 6:10 pm

It was a hot day – full of humidity and sunshine.  It probably would have been a good afternoon for baseball – lots of LONG hits would have been had I’m sure.  Of course, all that humidity in the air in July in Minnesota is a pretty good hint at something else too – STORMS.  The weather is now getting a little dicey.  There is almost certainly going to be a delay – if not more.  We’ll have to see what happens and I’ll keep you updated as well as I can!

It seemed as though both pitchers tonight were VERY aware that they had only a small window of dry weather to get this game in before another round of ugly looking storms hit.  They were both incredibly successful and got us a complete 9 inning game in 1 hour and 52 minutes.  Wow.  And I have no words to describe the absolute domination of Carl Pavano as a Twin.  I love it despite my inability to define it.  He’s just amazing.

Yet another complete game for the mighty mustachio’d one – that makes 4 for the season.  Without doubt or debate that earns him yet another BOD.  But we would like to pass on pastries to Kubel and Delmon and Cuddy.. and JJ Hardy.. and.. ah forget it.  The whole team gets pastry for finally getting that old energy back and playing with the oomph that we remember from early this season!  Great Job, Boys!!  And there go the sirens again so I’m out!
