5/24 – Game 2 @ Rangers

Man, I have to be honest, I fell asleep during this game. The rain/tornado delay was a couple minutes shy of three hours long and the game didn’t end until about 1:30 am. I was awake for most of the delay show but I finally gave up and just let myself fall asleep.

That being said, how about this Carlos Quentin kid!? First time this season (I think) in the third slot in the batting order and the guy hits three home runs. Adam Dunn even threw in a home run to offset his home runs-to-strikeouts ratio. And Dunn even bumped his batting average up near .200. Wayta go, bud.

The bullpen was pretty shaky and since my leaderboard is based on individual performance and not performance as a collective bullpen, not everyone gets points. Will Ohman pitched a good inning after the delay so he’ll get two points; Tony Pena allowed two runs so I’m afraid he won’t get any; Chris Sale allowed one run so no points for him; Jesse Crain was his usual self so he gets two points; Matt Thornton = same situation as Sale; finally, Santos struck out two batters en route to a save – two points for Sergio. Santos and Crain are fighting it out for the top spot in the standings.

Tomorrow’s game (well, actually, today’s game as I’m blogging this on Wednesday) will be a 1:05 start (which I didn’t know until I got in the car and found out they were in the eighth inning already… ugh…). It’ll be Gavin Floyd (5-3, 3.88) against C.J. Wilson (4-3, 3.42).

Go Sox!!

        I have to root for him. It’s a law that you have to root for your hometown boy. His stuff has been nasty an he’s so reliable when they keep dragging him into nasty 0-out, 2 or 3-on, post-Thornton/Sale/Pena meltdowns. I can overlook his kind of silly hair, if he is going to keep doing that!

    The guy has been absolutely nuts. I still can’t get over his bases-loaded, no-out performance against the Dodgers. Incredible. I don’t get to watch games on TV much since we don’t have cable or DirecTV or Comcast or whatever so I have no clue what his hair looks like lol.
