    Regarding lineup choices: I heard Gardy's radio show. He said that Pinto will get DH at-bats and that he likes Santana. Santana looks better from the left side, so if he's going to miss a game today is probably a good one to miss. Gardy also said that they are serious about using Santana in center and they like what they've seen of him in batting practice. Any outfield with Colabello in it isn't a good outfield. I'd rather run with Nuñez in left 10 times out of ten than have Colabello in right.

    Nine doubles on the season for Escobar, in limited play.

    Twins announcers joking about Escobar's slide, but that one looked like the sort where an ankle problem could have occurred.

    Stepped away and missed Hicks's attempted steal, which apparently they also found risible.

    / edit - and so, sure enough, he proceeds to walk Avila
    It goes hand in hand. His FB was ex0plosive last year, so he had a hard time controlling it. This year, it looks a lot straighter. He seems to throw more cutters than he did last year as well, perhaps because his FB doesn't have its former movement.

    Mostly because he was caught leaning on a pickoff. Wasn't even stealing, I don't think.

    There wasn't a challenge. Gardy wen out to argue a call with the 2B ump and Joe West moseyed over to toss him

    Okay, but I also missed exactly what happened. Did it hit the runner?

    Bases loaded, double play grounder hit right at Escobar, the runner on second got hit by the ball. Gardy's asking for them to rule a double play. I don't know if they even can, but if they can I imagine it would be similar to allowing a runner to score from first on fan interference or a ground rule double--very rare. Crew Chief (Country) Joe West got in the argument and quickly thumbed Gardy.

    Yup, ump called runner's interference on what coulda/woulda/shoulda been a double play ball, and only called the runner out. Sadly, i'm not close enough to have heard what exactly the argument was, though i'm sure that had something to do with it.
