Twins 0, Red Sox 6 — 8th inning


I’m posting this before the game ends so that I can relish the fact that the Twins are atop the Central Division right now. Especially because it doesn’t look like it’s going to stay that way. Johan “Unbeatable in the Second Half of the Season” Santana had an uncharacteristic blow up on the mound in the second inning. It sort of made me queasy when he bobbled that bunt. And then there was Papi…
Oh man, I can stop cheering for the Sox, but I can’t stop cheering for David Ortiz. His swing is just so sweet. He’s like a big teddy bear that hits homeruns. And I’d like you all to note that I was a fan of his long before he was the Boston favorite and MVP hopeful that he is now — I was a fan of his when he was a Twin. (And let’s not rip on Terry Ryan for “letting him go.” That was in fact a strategic favor to me as I moved to Boston and needed some Twins to come with me.) But he’s Boston’s now… all-time Red Sox single season homerun leader with 52 and counting. And he doesn’t share that title with anyone.
