What A Typical TwinkieDome Game

Nothing new in Minnesota tonight. Sox outplay the Twins without a doubt and the Sox do not win the game. We hand them 2 runs in the first, and then get burnt on one bad pitch in the 6th. Of course one hitter after a garbage seeing eye single up the middle.

This is starting to get incredibly frustrating. Time and time and time again the Sox invent new ways to lose games in Minnesota. I thought this was the trip. I thought we could over come all of the crap from the past and find a way to band together and play a great series. But no, instead we drop the first of three, still can't figure out how to hit in the DamnDome, and instead of banding together, AJ and Alexei almost threw blows in the dugout.

I'm not going to make too much of of the that fight because honestly I don't think it's anything we need to be worrying about. But something we do need to worry about is how to stop losing. This team is so much better than they are playing right now. They have now their 5th consecutive good start only to win 1 of those 5 games. Somehow the Sox are still just 2 games out of first, and still sit in 2nd place over the Twins. but I doubt it's going to last very long.

Obviosuly tomorrow is a game they Sox should win pretty easily. However my prediction is that Buehrle is good (not perfect) again and we still find a new way to lose a game. Whether it's bad base running, more errors, or figuring out a way to let the bullpen blow the game, the Sox will find a way to lose. We now just have 5 more games in that god forsaken hell hole. I'm not sure how much more of my rants this blog can take because of that wretched building. And let it be known that the day the new TwinkieHome opens up, I will be the happiest man on the planet. (Of course that is until the Sox are scheduled to open it and we get swept.)
