GameChat – White Sox @ Twins #2, 7:10pm

Ok this week is CRAZY about deadlines for me – honestly, more than I can actually meet so something is going to have to give somewhere, I just don’t know when or where..

So while I’m working tonight and my brain is frying, I’m hoping that the Twins will at least give me a good distraction AND a good mood lift. Last night’s win didn’t hurt!

Seeing Mauer take on Chris Sale could make for good baseball theater! I just hope Correia is up to the task.. let’s go boys!

It really is fun beating the White Sox, isn’t it? I mean… just watching the circus that their defense can turn in to at times is just enjoyable.

One thing about being the only person left in the Chat when the game ends is that it falls to me to choose the BOD. There were all sorts of guys up and down the line up that had good games. Brian Dozier with an early, critical home run. Justin Morneau breaking his HR slump. Josh Willingham, Ryan Doumit… the list goes on.

But Kevin Correia gave the Twins a very good outing on the mound, giving up just five hits in 6.2 innings and striking out 6 Sox without surrendering a single walk. That’s the kind of starting pitching that deserves to be rewarded and that’s what we’re going to do!
