The last two games have been frustrating for a number of reasons … we could have won both games … Detroit’s struggles have given both the Twins and Sox an opportunity to put some pressure on them … Santana wasn’t Santana last night, etc.
Still, a victory today would leave us 1/2 game behind the Twins. A Detroit loss today at Cleveland (notice they are now 60-68) would then put us 4.5 games behind the Tigers.
I am sure you saw that we recalled Jerry Owens and placed him on the disabled list. This was done because players on your roster on August 31 are eligible for your postseason rosters. We were covering our bases.
