AL Central Watch: Aug. 19

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks

Here's a quick glance at what's happening around the American League Central.

The Twins' beleaguered bullpen got a much needed rest Monday. Patrick Reusse of the Star Tribune is looking ahead to the Twins' upcoming monster trip that will taken them an estimated 6,234 miles to Anaheim, Seattle, Oakland, Toronto and back to the Twin Cities. They will be on the road for 15 nights and play 14 games on their longest trip since 1969, when the Twins were gone for 17 days and played 15 games.

The Tigers have gently turned their attention to next season, and it looks as if Armando Galarraga has secured a spot in Jim Leyland's 2009 rotation.

Rangers All-Star second baseman Ian Kinsler suffered a potential sseason-ending injury, which is bad news for him, but something that only enhances Carlos Quentin's growing chances of winning the American League MVP Award.

Tonite Good pitching stops Good Hitting Always

Good Hitting old classic

I saw the #'s & alarms went off. Linebrink pitching the 8th? 0.67 era. Every one else? 7.15 era. IMO w Linebrink, the WSox would have swept the Rays.

I can easily imagine the WSox leading the AL if Linebrink hadn't gone on the DL. The good news is he's expected bad early-mid Sept. We just have to hold on until then.
