    I am surprised Nolasco thought he could pitch through. You would think the the era encroaching on 6 would be a clue. In related news...the MRI turned out fine and Nolasco has been optioned to AA where he will be taught how to throw lefthanded by Aaron hicks battin coach

    I like the Comeback Bunny because he is so cute and ineffectual, which matches our team so well.

    Considering who we're playing, might an albatross be effective?

    And it was fielded like it was hit. So he's on.

    In the short term, that's good enough for me.

    (If only we coulda done something with it...)

    In fairness, with wheels like those bearing down on him, the first baseman had only a split-minute to make the play.

    This just in: he's having a bad season.

    / OK, recapping from earlier posts, he's going for an MRI on his elbow, word is he's been trying to play through a problem with it

    You know, we could have had this Zunino kid, if the Twins had had the courage to draft him. He was right there for the taking.

    If the bases were loaded, and Iwakuma hit a batter, would the Twins still score a run?

    Trick question, obviously. If the bases are loaded, Iwakuma is facing some different team.

    Who is the oldest pitcher on the 40-man not on the 25-man? <checking....> Kris Johnson.

    Lol, Escobar making sure he wasn't on the wrong end of Hammer Time there.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.
