GameChat – Red Sox @ Twins, 6:10pm

So I did most of my venting about horrible baseball the guys have been playing lately this morning.. That being said, I’m only done venting if they are done jacking it up in the infield and wussing out at the plate. If we can get guys to start playing good baseball, using the glove effectively and hitting the ball once in awhile, I will actually be able to let the rest of frustrations go relatively quickly. But errors, LOB and other jack-assery will just make me very angry for a very long time.

Congratulations are in order to Tsuyoshi and his wife – they have a brand new baby girl! Also, it means he’s out of the lineup tonight and that gives me a break to not have to grumble about my disappointments there either. I’m glad that everything went well and I hope he really enjoys fatherhood!

The Twins didn’t totally suck tonight for the first 8 innings. I guess that’s progress. – JC
