OK, I’m officially torn. I can’t help but cringe to see the “Big Hurt” Frank Thomas belting two home runs (one being the game winner) against the Twins today, when back in 2000, he did his best “Big Skirt” impersonation, going O-fer. (Thomas was injured during last year’s playoffs).
But I also can’t help but be ecstatic that those Twinkies (the damn piranhas) were beaten by the sheer power of one man – even while throwing Johan Santana up on the mound.
Now, let’s see here, the A’s have Loaiza going up against (?) Bosner tomorrow.
The Twins were 1 and 0 against him during the season, scoring 6 runs in 4 Innings of his pitching. Loaiza, though, had rebounded towards the end of the season.
Rich harden pitches on Saturday. Sweep anyone?
