It was a great game yesterday with the Twins winning 4-3 over the Red Sox in 10 innings. Once again Brad Radke failed to get much for run support and the bullpen couldn't hold the his lead when they came in. Grant Balfour finally showed the signs of being the reliever the Twins need right now though and pitched enough scoreless innings for the team to score the winning run in the 10th allowing Joe Nathan to notch the save. I'm not going to post a new column today in order to allow everyone an extra day to read Ryan's piece comparing the 2004 Royals to the 2002 Twins. It's a very interesting comparison. It is a wonder how some teams are able to get over the hump while others regress before they ever get anywhere. There will be a Twinschatter column this weekend for anyone interested so stop back and see what we want to chat about.
