    I don't think there's any "may" about it. He's ****ing terrible.

    This happened a few times last year with KC. Disappointing that it's always handled the same way. BP is rested thanks to gib and rick. I leave KC in if those two starts didn't happen.

    He was up on the grass and stepping forward. Positioning was alright in my opinion.

    It was a good bunt

    It's always a good day when Gardy has his "Twins Way" hand forced.

    Was what I meant. Because sarc./snark helps me digest Twins baseball.

    7 innings, three runs for Corriea. Not bad at all.

    I lived in LA for years. At one point, the Dodgers had Scully announcing. The Angels had Hudler.

    It is not humanly possible to have a larger discrepancy between announcing talent in the same city.
