Nails indeed, bro.

I know, it's all very strange. But a step in the right direction. I just hope that Litsch is okay.

The fact he (BJ) couldn't put anyone away with 2 strikes worries me a little, but hey, Span hit a good pitch and Morneau's just a good hitter.

He was in the strike zone, his velo was OK (by his standards), and he put the Twins away.

Win.

BJ was NAILS???

He came in with a 2 run lead, brought the tying run to the plate, and got bailed out by a tough double play...that about as "NAILS" as Mike Timlin ever was!

Does anyone know why Frasor was brought in to face 2 tough lefties, when Downs and Carlson were available?? Hmmmm...perhaps they are trying to SABOTAGE HIM???

^^....that's why I closed with a "?" vs "!".

Anyway, baby steps. Like I said - Span hit a good pitch, and Morneau just went up and got one. Be thankful it stayed in the park!

6-2 baby.

Gotta agree with Andy MC's comment. BJ had me sweating bullets towards the end.

BJ had me sweating bullets before he came in the game.

But the important thing is that BJ got ahead of every hitter he faced. At one point, he'd thrown one ball, and ten strikes. That's the BJ we know, the BJ we love. Nothing crazy in terms of velocity, but a cat who comes in and works quick, and throws motherfuckin strikes.

He did his job tonight. Those two hits were both reach out singles. It happens. He induced the ground ball for a huge double play, and then got a good lefty to fly out to second base with the game on the line. That's NAILS, alright.

On the Twins broadcast they had him clocked at 84-86. Both of the hits were on sliders that hardly moved and were right over the plate. Not exactly NAILS, but at least the control was there, which is certainly encouraging.

BJ scares me.
