Big Day for Bartlett; 2-2 tie, 11 innings

Another good day for our boy Jason Bartlett: 3-for-3 and he stole 2 bases, one setting up a run when LeCroy drove him home from 2nd base in the 1st inning. No errors to hold against him, either. It's all about you, kid. Soon you'll be needing a snazzy nickname. Any ideas out there?

The Annointed Ace for Life scattered 6 hits in his 4 innings to start the game, striking out 3 and walking none, and allowing 1 run. Lew Ford also saved a run by throwing out a runner at home in the 4th inning, preserving a 2-1 lead for Rad. JC Romero pitched erratically again, however, giving up a couple hits and walking one while striking out two batters in the 5th. Mike Lowell hit a double off Romero to tie the game, and that's how it ended after 11 innings.

I should have another posting up later this evening, depending on how some research pans out. Right now I'm trying to find some financial data on the Twins' local media contracts. If anyone has information on the value of the FSN and WCCO deals, please let me know in the comments thread. Thanks.

Re: Bartlett nickname

Unfortunately, the Twins roster already has a President, otherwise we could use the obvious West Wing tie-in.

I don't like any Bart Simpsons tie-ins either ("Carumba", etc.).

How about Tank?

You'll have to explain 'Tank' to me....
