Minnesota 9, Boston 8

May 12, 2008

There’s certainly nothing like a three-plus hour Sunday night baseball game that gets you home post-midnight to start off the work week on the right foot. But hey, at least it was an exciting affair.

Props to my editor, who shifted some things around to go Craig Monroe heavy at the top and in the process managed to fit the word “career” three times in the same sentence. I shouldn’t complain, though, for how many times they’ve taken the crap I wrote and actually made it presentable.

For you Boston fans (how so many wound up in the Twin Cities I’ll never know), Terry Francona said last night that Manny Ramirez would likely play today, so no need to worry about his hammy.

Here’s hoping for a sub-three-hour game this evening…
