    If that's the case, why are the Twins doing it?

    Really nice baserunning by Florimon there- he was running hard to second and made up his mind fast when the ball trickled off the infielder. Made it to third without a throw.

    Dozier...oops. It looked like he was taking a step toward second and didn't get back in time.

    I'm at work, and I'm still posting.

    The trick is, make it look​ like you're doing work.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    I too am posting from work.

    Of course, it helps to be the boss.

    Gardy is trying all kinds of stuff he wouldn't normally do this year.

    Clearly a balk move. I could see it and I'm only reading the ESPN.com pbp, so why didn't the umpires?

    Solid single up the middle by Mauer, 4-0.

    What is all this crazy "hitting with runners in scoring position"???

    Carrasco... Seems to suit our hitters.

    And he's only at 37 pitches through 2 innings, so we get maybe four more innings of this? Twelve runs would be nice.

    Gameday says that Carrasco is throwing as hard as 95. Must be pretty straight. I saw the hit by Arcia--the ball cut into his swing--so I guess velo along solves nothing.

    Not very clutch of Mauer, since there should have been one more baserunner.

    Hey, friend. You're younger than me. None of that "retirement" nonsense. Work 'til you die! Or until the house is paid for.
