G151: Twins 7, Red Sox 3

Even the most optimistic of us (really, probably only me, and a few mental patients) have to say: It is over. 8.5 back in the wild card with 11 to play.

***

Newest Sock: 28-year-old RHP Devern Hansack, called up from Portland. He made two starts in the Eastern League Championship Series against Akron, going 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA (The Sea Dogs won the Championship). For the season, he was 8-7, 3.26. He will wear #68.

Matt Garza (5.50) / Tim Wakefield (4.19), 7 PM

With 12 games left in the regular season, the Red Sox trail the Twins by 7.5 games in the wild card race (the White Sox, who host Detroit, are 4.5 games back).

Yeah, but I still want to finish ahead of Toronto and Papi to hit 50 HR's. Also wanna see Schill get 15 wins and Youk score 100 runs.

yeah, its over, but its been fun. well, up until this past month anyway. i'm not convinced ny is going anywhere in the first round, and once they choke (again!) i'll be happy to watch the playoffs passively.

I'm already looking forward to next season.
