GameChat – Red Sox @ Twins, 7:10pm

So the Red Sox are in town – and we greet them with soggy, grayness. Yay.

And we face Clay Buchholz with no Mauer (out tonight with a sore back) and with Parmelee in the 2-hole. THAT’s kind of interesting.. not sure what I think about that.

At any rate, let’s see what the boys can do since I’m pretty sure that they’ll get the game in..



Ellsbury, CF Dozier, 2B
Nava, RF Parmelee, RF
Pedroia, 2B Willingham, DH

Drew, SS Arcia, LF
Gomes, J, LF Plouffe, 3B
Carp, 1B Hicks, CF
Saltalamacchia, C Florimon, SS
  Buchholz, P   Worley, P

I was watching an extra-inning game tonight, but it didn’t involve the Twins (at least not the current Twins), so I couldn’t begin to comment on what happened. I did note from Twitter that Vance Worley seemed to have one of his better games on the mound since joining the Twins, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. For that, your bats typically need to accumulate more than four hits. – JC
