GameChat – Twins @ White Sox #2, 1:10pm

Let’s see if we can’t do a little better today than we did in the opener.. unfortunately, I don’t know that I expect better pitching which could end up being the story of the season… (just like the last three..)

But it’s a new season right? We all get a fresh start – even Kevin Correia.

ok, what happened to that fresh start?

gotta say that game felt awfully familiar.. a lot like yesterday. Correia let some in in the first couple innings but settled in after that to a fairly solid and respectable outing. Nothing spectacular but nothing egregious – pretty much like last year. We had some pretty solid hitting from Suzuki and Plouffe – but some ridiculously bad fielding from Plouffe and some unforgivably bad “bunting” from Kurt kind of knocked those positive feelings for a loop too.

What WASN’T familiar was Perkins blowing a save – and blowing it of his own accord because yeah, those were NOT good pitches.

That left us with a tie and extra innings.. and then some wild pitching from Deduno that proved less “effective” than he would like gave the White Sox the chance they needed to take the win.

Yeah, that frustration also feels awfully familiar…
