    Tuesday playoff thread

    Decided to telecommute today so I could watch some of the games.

    Johan Santana vs. Barry Zito is an awfully fun matchup to watch.

    OAK up 2-0 in the 3rd. HR by Thomas, double by Scutaro. If Santana doesn't win at home, it isn't looking good for the Twinkies. Where's Juan Castro when you need him?

    Zito through 3 on only 32 pitches. Minnesota so far with only one baserunner on a leadoff walk.

    Re: Tuesday playoff thread

    Santana has thrown 55 pitches through 3 innings; Zito has thrown 33.

    2-0 A's after 3.

    Twins have turned into first strike out machines against a pitcher who has had serious control issues over the course of the season.

    Zito can chew up a lineup if it isn't willing to take pitches.

    How can this be...I thought they cured all their ills when they unloaded all those dreaded scrappy vets earlier in the season.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    What's the playoff record for pop outs in a single game? The Twins would seem to be well on their way to it.

    but for the playoffs they now have the likes of Punto, Hunter, White and Nevin out there.

    This team was basically carried by three players(Mauer, Cuddyer and Morneau).

    Cuddyer with a chance to get the Twins back in the game. Sweet strike one by Zito.

    And Cuddyer grounds out after Zito jams him.

    I think Barry Zito may be the world's most perfect person.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Error on Bartlett. Castro would have made that play.

    It's true. That was a Castro special.
