    I was at the game tonight, and you have capsulized what I was thinking on the way home.

    Even though Carroll gets on base more? Yeah, typical Gardenhire garbage avoiding looking at a simple stat like OBP.

    Well he did say "lately." Not typically Gardenhire's style, but over the previous week or two, Carroll's OBP was falling sharply while Casilla's had been climbing. And with the comments by Carroll after Tuesday's game, it wouldn't surprise me if he had even brought up the idea because he didn't seem like he was feeling all that confident about himself at the plate recently.

    At that rate, how do you plan to fill out the last three spots in your rotation?

    He probably looked at OPS and wanted the better overall hitter to get more chances at at-bats. (Rolling eyes.)

    I needed a chuckle in relation to the home nine today. Thank you, sir.
