9th Inning FG can't put Sox over the hump

16 posts in this topic

Despite missing an extra point in the 3rd inning the Twins managed to pull out a 20-14 win this afternoon. Are you kidding me? I bet the Vikes and Bears don't score that many in each of their games this season.

Was that some truly pathetic pitching today? 39 hits? I was waiting for Ozzie and Gardy to pitch an inning. It couldn't have been any worse. And five errors for the Sox. When's the last time a team had 18 hits, and were never really in the game? If that wasn't their worst game in decades, it had to be right up there.

Tonights game was one sided as Morneau's 3 homers led the way.

Fins,

Are you kidding me? One Sided? The score was 20-14!!! I wonder what the Twinks record would be for the year if they gave up 14 runs every game. One Sided? Spinner would be more on the right track with pathetic. I don't know of too many Twink fans who would sleep tight knowing that their pitchers were going to give up two touchdowns every game.I think some of your compadres out there can come up with some better words than one sided. OK guys....Fire Away!

That was a serious two-game beat down. But that is going to be hard on the Twins with Redmond hurt and Mauer needing a day off tomorrow...I wonder if Redmond will try to play, or if the Twins will make a roster move...

Most people would consider 12-0 a one sided game. The afternoon game could be called "pathetic', or "disgusting", or "slugfest" , or just "poor pitching", or in the W.S. case "poor defense", take your pick! Whichever you choose, it is 2 wins for the MINNESOTA TWINS! smile.gif

I believe Fins was referring to the nightcap 12-0 game.

the key was "tonight's game".- at least for those with a 2nd grade level of english and above. still 32-14 in runs scored for the day, and 12-0 in one game = big time beating.

windy- at least the cubs lost-- and I mean on friday for correct grammar for those lacking in that field.

Yes, now game two was a beat down. Although a W is a W in the standings, I couldn't enjoy game one when the Twins struggled to hold a ridiculous lead. That looked like a Reds-Nats pitching performance, not a contending team. But on the bright side, Garza is certainly showing improvement.

Well that had to be the most "one sided" series split I have ever seen. Funny game, that baseball game!

that is a good way to put it. man, what a weird series. Entertaining however. I do like games like these once in ahwile. i get sick of 1-0 and 2-1 games in a hurry.

by the way, what has happened to Jermaine Dye?

Not sure Dawg,

Some people think he might be on the trading block. Some people think he is doggin it after he signed his deal. I have never been a huge Dye fan but he was hot in 05!

One sided series? winning 6-3 and 3-1 is no way close to winning 12-0 and 20-14 even though they split the low point of the season for the Sox's has got to be two back to back snack downs within hours of each other. The 20-14 game as I saw it was the Twins just putting runs on the board when they needed them almost like a church softball game.. Only thing good about the Sox's is Ozzie

Bobby,

That's why I put the post in, are you reading the words. I think it is funny that a team can get beat down so bad in a 4 game series and walk out of it with exactly the same number of wins and losses as the team doing the beating. Hence, my comment of baseball being a funny game.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Hey eyes one thing nice is you have reveres to help clean out your holes

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
