Baseball Before Bedtime: I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself

Here's what happened in baseball while planning everything for two:

Twins 4, Yankees 0: I've been reading about something called a "short shutout" lately and I don't really want to give it any credence. Still, Twin Glen Perkins hurled eight shutout innings and was rewarded for his efforts with Adam Everett's second 2008 tater tot and a W.

Red Sox 5, White Sox 1: Boston picked up a series split with Chicago the old-fashioned way: they broke up a no-hitter in the seventh and piled on runs. After fooling the Red Sox bats for six strong innings, John Danks gave up two runs in the seventh to become the loser.

Cardinals 4, Marlins 2: With his team up 3-2, Rick Ankiel made two errors on an eighth inning single by Hanley Ramirez. Fella was playing left field for the first time all year; he bobbled the ball and made a bad throw back to the infield. Ankiel's double-oopsie was not enough for the Marlins to stage a comeback. Reliever Kyle McClellan recorded three straight outs to strand Hanley on third.

Astros 3, Giants 1: Brandon kept the Astros just nine games Backe of the Brewers in the wild card chase.

Pirates 7, Mets 5: The Mets bullpen collapses under pressure not unlike a delicious souffle left in the oven too long. At this rate, Jerry Tranuel will never be able to afford the operation.

Brewers 7, Nationals 1: Brewers starters allowed but two runs in 31 1/3 innings over the four game wraparound sweep over Washington. Prodded for comment, Manny Acta could only reply, "I hope Jerry can afford the operation."

Earliest post evar. My computer still says 4:54 AM.

THE ASTROS ARE STILL IN THIS THING

Is that Late Night Farthammer or Early Morning Farthammer?

The Indians continue their reign of terror in the AL Central. Unfortunately the Yankees suck too much to help us out with the Twins.

ALL THOSE JERKS GOT HURT YESTERDAY AND I AM STILL HEALTHY AS AN OX. I WILL CONTINUE TO HIT .400 AND SHOOT OXES IN MY FREE TIME.

This is early morning guy. I am in Ohio for training. Hearing people talk about how Adam Dunn was too flawed is cute.
