Well, is he?

Is Boof eligable for a nickname? I mean, Boof was a nickname, but now it's his legal name, so, could Boof, in theory, be given a nickname? Boof "Really Cool Nickname" Bonser?

This is what Voltaire thinks about.

At least it was A-Rod

Boof didn't do so well tonight. He went 4 1/3 innings, giving up six earned runs, walking two, and only striking out one. An A-Rod 2-run home run in the first started things off, and the Yankees tacked on another run in the second. Boof then found himself and sent New York down in order during the 3rd and 4th innings, but the 5th proved impossible. A series of hits and errors resulted in two more runs, and then Jesse Crain was kind enough to allow one of Boof's stranded runners to score.

Hey. It was the Yankees. It was the second start of the season.

And it's not as though Boof pitched out of character - when he loses, he loses by the long ball.

EDIT: Sure enough, the Twins didn't work a miracle, and Boof picked up the loss to slide to 0-1.

Boof blasts Orioles

Boof got off to a splendid start for '07 against the Orioles on Tuesday. Striking out 6 in 6 innings, Boof gave up a mere 2 runs. Of course, one came by the long ball, the bane of Boof's existence, but otherwise his start was worry-free. The interesting one will be on the 9th, against the Yankees.

EDIT: Because of a "cold-out", the Twins pitchers are being pushed back one day. Boof next starts on Tuesday, against Andy Pettitte and the Yankees.
