Carlos Gomez is my Stud.

"Carlos Gomez is a stud."

I didn’t watch the entire game. After the Sox went up 6-1 I thought we had it. Floyd on the mound, a significant lead, the game was in the bag.

But as the Twins do best, they chipped, and chipped, and tied, and there, the guy hitting two something with RISP singles-in the winning run.

Sure there was another blown call by the umpiring crew (third in the game, if I believe the threads in the sox blogosphere).

This time around, however, the biggest of the Sox flaws was front and center. No bullpen. Technically, the Sox are still in it but now they have to regain the lead they once had. And that’s only if the Twins are willing to relinquish it.

As I noted in my first post previewing this series, the Twinkies have been a better hitting team than the Sox; and in all honesty, it surprises me that this didn’t happen earlier in the latter half of the season.

As much as I hate to admit that the Sox don’t deserve it, we’re still tied in the loss column. Let’s go!!

    If there was ever a time for ozzie to ramp & rage it was after the game 2 loss to the twins. This is when you get up in your ballclubs face and challenge some of those million dollar hitters fight (Thome,Dye,Konerko,Griffy Jr.) 3,4,5 hitters have been terrible way before they entered the metrodome but ozzie & kenny refused to address the issue early.So when you entered the last month of the season and your best hitter went down wasnt that enough of a red flag? Ozzie is more of a showmen then a mannager he loves the attention but winning will get you more attention then any other way known to man. The sox are starting to look like the retirement resort for aged stars yet these are the players that Kenny keep wanting us to give him credit for signing. If the cubs can find a whole roster full of viable plug in players you mean to tell me Kenny couldnt find 3 to fill the hole that Crede & Carlos left by going down late in the season. I agree the sox dont deserve to go to the post season FOR WHAT? to futher show how bad this team actually is by being bounced in the first series. How is the hitting coach still collecting a check when on his watch the big bats have done nothing to mention. It still looks like these hitters are still going after the same bad off speed pitches they were chasing earliar on in the season showing me there has not been any adjustments to protect teir weakness off speed pitches. Thome is all or nothing groundsout hits into double plays or strikes out OH YEAH, a occasional homerun they need a complete overhaul KENNY get on the phone now and stop blowing money signing players we get nothing out of. We have no speed no timely hitting no real ace and no middle relief get started now and get a jump on Gagne, Wagner, Hoffman,these are your type of players Kenny.
