    So the ump just thought Pressley threw some kind of miracle pitch or what? How could you not see that hit that guy?

    I just heard Bremmer say Ryan Pressly and his 5.7 K/9 was a power arm.

    Sometimes I get the feeling that Dick doesn't actually consult with the team regarding propaganda talking points, I get the feeling that Dick is actually the mastermind. Can I call Bremmer the Joseph Goebbels of the Twins organization without implying the Pohlad's are Hitler? Because I wouldn't feel comfortable going that far.

    He might have ruled that the batter didn't make an effort to get out of the way, which means the ball is dead and the pitch is a ball (or a strike, if it was in the strike zone.) I've never seen it called that way in MLB before, but I have called it in lower level leagues if someone leaned into it. MLB hitters are usually pretty subtle about it, and it doesn't require a good effort, just an effort.

    Ex-Twin note: Sean Henn is now pitching for the Giants. How many remember him?

    That would be equally as crazy, not even close.

    Some biting Dick analysis: "Starter Pedro Hernandez got 14 outs...and the bullpen will get the rest of 'em."

    Yep. I'm not reminded of the fact very often, so it's not too painful.

    The way the strike zone has been, I'm surprised he didn't call it a strike.

    Angels exposing Twins weakness by allowing RISP with 0 outs, crafty, very crafty.

    Other teams' backup players make mistakes too! C'mon Trev, find a good pitch and drive it!

    Stingy, sometimes; she is a resource not to be squandered. More often, though, just forgetful.

    Well, to be fair, after it went off his elbow it DID deflect right through the strike zone. On a path parallel to a line drawn from third to first, mind you, but still.

    Laz Diaz with another "good" call. As a matter of fact, Diaz was right.
