Thread: Article: Series Preview: Tigers @ Twins, 4/1

    So it sounded like everyone was ready to bury Worley on Twitter early in his start... but he managed to go 6 IP and only give up 3 earned... Obviously not an ideal start... but out of a 3rd starter that's not bad. It's not fair to expect Worley to be an ace just because he's the best player on a turd of a rotation.

    Yes, that's the strategy. Let the 8th-9th-10th place hitters in the line up go quietly, rope-a-dope style, and then let our leadoff guy Mauer come out swinging (or quite possibly walking) to start the 9th.

    It looked like it was going to bounce into his chest and had the top spin to go under his legs (or it hit the plate and skipped instead of bounced).

    Not a good play but I see how it happened.

    Earlier I mentioned the music during introductions. Perhaps for the Twins it should've been "Keystone Kops."

    Butera would have stopped it.

    I love Mauer... But stay down... Use your chest protector.

    Benny Hill style Yakkity Sax would also work.

    He would have... Most catchers wouldn't have stood up. That was very bad fundamentally.

    That would require obtaining usage permission from the Astros.

    No one can gargle a mouthful of stones quite like Telly.

    Just finished saying to my wife how hard it must be to be a rookie with the spotlight on you and your teeth are chattering through everything you're supposed to say. I guess I went with pity initially.
