There are some really good umpires in the league. Tonight's first base ump is not one of them.

There was a bang-bang play at first, but Carroll was clearly safe. The ump called him out, so he turned around and said something and was immediately ejected (first of his career). Then Gardy came out, raised hell, and was given the heave-ho as well. But that's the third call that ump has missed tonight.

That umpire should never umpire another professional baseball game. The league needs to do something about the integrity of the game.-----

I didn't see it. I had no plans on watching this loss after work, but now I do.
And I have been consistent regarding Swarzak . . . and Liriano is not to be used in mop-up roles. Just sayin'.

David Bromberg and Liam Hendriks will be pitching for the Twins this year. How Bromberg is not in Rochester already is beyond my thinking capabilities, apparently. Gardenhire and Rantz are equally insane.
This team simply needs to end the season with:
Blackburn (I guess, $5.5 million reasons next year)
What is there to lose?

C-Dog, I understand the point there. But, my god, really . . . some very limited LF time for Revere in the spring vs. some weird preference for RF for him? A manager who knows anything about baseball should say, "REALLY? No. Get back to LF, which is where you will be most of the time." I don't understand how such a stupid decision could be made there.
And even all of that doesn't mean squat regarding the construction of tonight's lineup.
