    In a blowout like this, Gardy was right to put player relations ahead of desired outcome by paying Herrmann the courtesy of letting him pinch hit for Swarzy.

    Team construction comment/criticism: good teams use games when they have a large lead or deficit to give innings to their up-and-coming pitchers so they can have major league experience. What good is it for future team development to give garbage innings to Guerrier? I'd rather see what A.J. Achter or Matt Hoffman, among others, can do.

    Great, if the Twins score seven runs here they'll have to move one of their outfielders to first base.

    (originally referring to Los Angeles, not San Fran, and the whole movie changes when the mosquito gets squished.)

    "You're a little out of your weight class..." seems to apply to this series as well.

    Anyway, it's over. And i hope the next game's against someone else, perhaps even with rumored outfield re-enforcements.

    Final Score: 8-1. Two infielders played in the outfield today, which led directly to the first two runs being scored in the 1st inning and to several other cringeworthy fly ball outs and ugly plays later in the game.

    Meanwhile Hicks and Kubel sat on the bench. Genuinely trying to figure out why this was tolerated. Help!

    A movie that has the distinction of being very strange even by Coen brothers standards...

    At least with Kubel you could make the case that he's been pretty useless against tough lefties in his career, but like you said, they miss his glove out there.

    It's funny, typing that last phrase made me feel as if I had crossed some sort of invisible yet significant barrier...

    Lefties OBPing .253 against Mad Bum for his career and Mauersie went 1-4, so it was just a case of bad luck and accurate math.
