From the capital to the capital
Wednesday I flew from one capital (London) to another (Sacramento).
Due to my flight, I missed the last game of the A’s-Twins series. Upon landing I checked the scores on my cell phone. The news about Liriano re-injuring his arm hit me like a kick in the nuts…I hope that his elbow has a chance to fully heal without surgery.
You have to go with the guys you have. Thursday that meant BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOF BONSER taking the hill for the Twins. I watched the game on MLB.TV and Boof looked great. He seems to have built up his confidence during the course of his last few starts.
Every time Jesse Crain takes the hill I wonder if he will be the Jesse Crain of ’05 (12-5, 2.71 ERA) or ’06 (4-5, 3.82 ERA). His first pitch last night, a game tying three run homer, cost Boof a decision. Once the damage was done, he seemed to settle down.
