GameChat – Twins @ Rays #2, 6:10

Tonight, Knuckleballs Chat is a Football-Free Zone!!

Ok, so we all knew that Carl Pavano was actually human so we had to expect that another loss was coming some day.  But it would have been nice if our offense could have stepped up the way we know they can.  Considering that it’s young Duensing’s turn today, let’s not let him down today boys.  Please??

That was most definitely a crazy game – extremely frustrating, extremely exhilarating at times, and all together a challenging game to be a spectator for.  My guess is that it was a challenge for the starting pitching for both teams too..  that was more walks than I think I have seen in a month from either team.  Sheesh.  But Butera hit another HR in front of his daddy, there was a goofy-ass 6 player throwing circus for an out in the bottom of the 8th and in general, the Twins kept fighting in a way that I like to see.

See y’all back here tomorrow!

  1. we need to win the last 2 of the series.
    It seems the Twins have had struggles with the AL East teams (sans the Os) this year

  2. They’d better figure out how to beat someone else in that division, James… they end the season in October with a series vs. the Blue Jays and I suspect they’re going to need to win some of those games.
