It figures: as soon as I complain about J.C. Romero's habit of failing to get the job done when inheriting runners, he goes out and pitches a gem of an inning, getting two strikeouts and a flyout to rescue the Twins from a seventh-inning meltdown. It still took four more innings and a homer by Shannon Stewart to put the Indians away, but on this night at least, the Twins inability to finish games in a timely manner couldn't be blamed on Romero.
Maybe if I complain about some other bad habits of the Twins -- like leaving runners on base (only nine last night!) or failing to communicate in center/left field while chasing down fly balls (two nights in a row they messed up the play!) -- they'll fix those problems as well. Knock on wood.
