That was a nice running catch by Escobar a while back. It's not his fault he's out there, and he's making the best of an intolerable situation.

how do you score two runs on a ground ball to short?

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

How is that not an error? Dozier doesn't score if Cabrera fields it.

Okay, have at it, boys. I'm done defending anything this front office does right now.

Unbelievable. I don't even care about Brooks Raley but MATT GUERRIER?

It's no sweat if you just remind yourself that the Twins are in the entertainment business, not the winning baseball games business. Wins are just a gold star on the refrigerator calendar.

They lost Brooks Raley.

To keep Matt Guerrier.

Every rebuilding team should cut guys in their 20s to bring up 35 year old RP. It's the new market inefficiency. Like injured college RP being drafted early rounds.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

Are the official scorers in Cleveland the same people making roster moves for the Twins?

I thought Santana should have had a hit at the start of the inning, and not giving Cabrera an error there is inconceivable.

If likes were rationed weekly, I'd get up at 12:01 Monday morning to send next week's too.

And, we have this somewhat confusing series of tweets from Berardino:






  • Mike Berardino ‏@MikeBerardino 10m
    Only possible reason to conceal DFA status for Raley that I can think of is to keep the leverage with Guerrier's agent on opt-out date.



    Presumably the first tweet now just means that the Twins were talking with Matty G's agent not Guerrier himself.

    But I haven't understood the warrior love since ST and I still don't get it now.

You will never understand the Twins front office until you grasp the fact that there is no spoon.

Great update, btw. If the Twins were a branch of government, a congressional committee would have already been appointed to investigate.
