    Coffey is pitching much better now that he is back in the set up role. Can't quite figure out what he is doing in this particular game. Jerry apparently thinks the game is in reach. He has more confidence in the offense than I do right now. Hope he is right.

    We must rally in the last 2 innings here. It is imperitive that they do so.

    Then you have Big Papi, the best clutch hitter of his generation. The Elias Sports Bureau was nice enough to send these numbers along: If Ortiz has one more walk-off hit in 2006, he'll be the first baseball hitter to have six in a single season since the division era began in 1969. ... Since the start of 2005, he's come up 13 times with the chance for a game-ending plate appearance and made an out only once (and he ended up winning that game in the 12th inning). ... He has the most walk-off hits in any four-year span (12, and that doesn't include the three in the 2004 playoffs, which made him the only player in history with three game-ending postseason hits). ... Since he joined the Red Sox in 2003, he has 15 walk-off hits and the rest of the team has 19 total. ... Since Aug. 1, 2004, Ortiz has hit 21 home runs in 138 at-bats in Late-Inning Pressure Situations (no other player has more than 13). ... Dusty Baker has the most career walk-off hits (25, including the playoffs), but Ortiz is 10 behind. And just for the record, none of those stats include all the times when he tied a game or gave the Red Sox the lead in the seventh or eighth inning.
    I would take Ortiz on a team any day (especially if he could field). The guy's attitude alone is a glue which holds that Sox team together quite nicely.

    I think MLB does it now, btu I don't think they have the gonads to crack down on the incompetence so pervasive throughout ML umps. It's not that hard to call balls and strikes. With the nature of umpiring, I think it's one of the few professions where a high turnover rate is a good thing. I think it would be good to see the bottom 10% let go every year.

    If the "trade"'s done nothing else, it's helped me more greatly appreciate the bullpen that was here before: Weathers, Coffey, Mercker.

    IIRC, before the Twins let him go, they tried to screw with his swing, plate discipline and just about his entire approach at the plate.

    When Ortiz responded poorly to all that nonsense, they cut him loose.

    Living here in Minnesota, I've met several Twins fans and the concensus is that Terry Ryan tried to turn him into a smallball player and when it didn't take he gave up on him (I've seriously heard that from multiple people). I'm not sure how true it is, but one guy even said that Ryan has since admitted it. But you're right, it's not something they don't think about. Ortiz in that lineup and they're a different team.

    Who was that who was batting for Clayton? Because I am pretty sure Royce could not have done that :

    He was too young. I think Wayne was trying to open up a roster spot to bring Hrbek back.

    Um....Royce will be getting PED tested tonight. First HR since June 2005.
