I thought BOOM BOOM POW is what happened to the Sox's lineup after the fire sale and them waving the white flag for the '09 season.

Nathan is who we thought he was: an overpaid puke-baller.

There isn't a team in baseball that would not take Nathan as their closer.

I half logged on tonight to see what Windy would name his new topic smile

So they improved from 2 for 18 to 3 for 19? I'm sure Ozzie was super pumped to get out of there for the last time with a win when they are so few and far between.

Zamboni,

Interesting stats, I wonder what they will look like on September 24th after my beloved Pale Hose issue a beat down on your Twinks. I have tickets to the series opener and I will be looking for some more of that BOOM BOOM POW! I can only hope that the last few will be off of that itchy twitchy reliever that Twink fans love to hate. I don't think any Sox fans have called Bobby Jenks a puke baller! LOL

Band wagon is getting a little lighter in Twinkieville........

Windy-

I wonder also-- but one thing that needs no wondering,, is that your team is behind the Twins in the standings and has a higher payroll RIGHT NOW. also-- no matter what, the Twins have 2 Titles in recent memory and the White SOx 1,, and the Twins have done more with what the have been dealt with than the White Sox have had. As far as the "Dump Dome" -- I'am glad you called it what it is for the WHite SOx,, you guys certainly smelled up the joint in a nutshell. For the Twins-- it was and has been-- HOME-SWEET-HOME, and really took care of beating the SOX there--- and 2 World Titles,, something you can't say.--

And i have sneaking feeling that the Dump DOme will work a liitle magic agst the Tigers, and that's all the Twins need to get in,, cause it certainly isn't coming from the SUX.

I would only take maybe 2 other guys to be my closer in MLB and maybe only one (Rivera) but that still doesn't make me feel comfortable when our closer starts twitching and shaking worse as the pressure rises....very hard to watch!!

The fact is, closers are bums. They aren't good enough to be starters and they come into the game with a lead and only need to get three outs. That they get All Star consideration is a joke. That they get Hall of Fame votes is a travesty. The save is THE most over-hyped, practically useless stat ever devised in baseball. Now they're starting to count holds...holds!! Are you kidding? These will be the next category of HOFers--first the closers, now the holders.

Rivera in his prime was untouchable, he brought a lot of value to the closer. You knew the game was over.

Name the only Twin to hit a bomb off him.

I would love to see Rivera as a starter with his one pitch repertoire. Once through the lineup then stick the fork in him. Ever see a starter with just one pitch?

Anyone else remember Ron Davis? OMG, worst closer of all time. I remember once he came in, ump called time, he went into his windup anyways and threw a pitch into the screen behind the plate

Ron Davis???????????? ya, I remember him.....I think he retired because of NECK trouble....snapping his head around to watch the ball go out so often, has to take a toll! I wouldn't put him as" worst of all time" though....Hawkins has that distinction. Davis just had lost too much by the time we got him.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
