GameChat – White Sox @ Twins #3, 12:10pm

These day games are really hard for regularly-employed people – I’m always concerned whether I can get a break for a post much less be able to follow the game itself and my current work-load? But since I’m sitting on hold at the moment, up goes a post. (and of course this is the day that they were really slow posting lineups so post delayed)

You might be entertained by this video from Justin Morneau’s HR in last night’s game:

But enough of yesterday, we would LOVE to sweep the White Sox wouldn’t we? I think, yes. It’s great to have the wins we already have and the series win but this is a divisional opponent and every single win matters so let’s not let the heat & humidity or the day game lethargy diminish the effort.

broom4WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!! Storm clouds may be literally on the horizon but that didn’t mean the boys didn’t want to finish off the White Sox with a bang today. I’m not going to argue with the fact that overall, the hitters made it really tough to pick a BOD today! There were homeruns from Dozier, Arcia, Thomas and Escobar which really makes the lacking look funny at the heart of the order… but again, with a win, who cares?

A lot could be said about the White Sox losing this game because with all the fielding errors, they really just gave us the game but no, we were still hitting and doing the job right for the most part – I’m looking at you Plouffe.

Interesting to me was a bit I got off Twitter: First time Sox swept at Target Field, first time swept at Minn since 9/23-25/08. 12 games under .500 since end of 2007.

Wow…  but this is a huge shot in the arm for the boys to take the Sox at home so I hope they take that feeling with them for the next game.

And congrats to Oswaldo Arcia as today’s BOD!
