I’m not going to make a habit of this, but the circumstances
were right tonight, and I did the Twitter thing from my seat at Rangers
Ballpark.  It went something like this:

 

FIRST INNING: 1st: hunter 11
pitches, Beckett 22…like seeing D.Anderson getting more aggressive sending
runners…make ‘em make a play

 

SECOND: Papi getting
aggressive on the bags? Like that too

 

FOURTH: Hunter’s G/F tonight
will be deceiving; lots of bad contact in the air

 

FIFTH: In the 15 years
before 07, Hunter is a top 5 prospect for this org; now — 12ish? 15?
Impressive as hell

 

SIXTH: Someone oughtta
research this: lowest pitches per inning in a start vs super-disciplined Boston this year

 

SIXTH: That
20-something-pitch inning: my bad, that’s on me; one other thing – (I’m gonna
choose not to reprint the rest here)

 

SEVENTH: Another great Anderson send

 

EIGHTH: Yeah sabermetricians:
Texas
pitching no better this year; mm hmm

 

EIGHTH: Hamilton just a little better than Beckett, just
like TB thought 10 years ago

 

EIGHTH: In 10-year career,
Dave Anderson never played against Boston;
coaching game of his life tonight vs Sox

 

NINTH: Liiiiiiikes me some
2009 C.J.
