I don't quite understand why they are making this a bullpen game, but we'll see how it works out.
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Who knows. Maybe this game will educate the baseball public on how a 9 man closer rotation is needed?

With the All-Star break coming up, McLendon wanted Felix to face division rival and playoff contender Oakland. They adjusted their roster to have nine bullpen arms, so they will burn a bunch of the 'pen in advance of their ace.

Might be better to plan for it rather than stumble into it by accident or necessity.

I understand that, but they are going to be in trouble if their starters pitch poorly against Oakland. Luckily the All-Star break is coming up.

I'll leave that up to the geniuses. I am busy counting my marbles.

They are counting on Felix--a lot. He might be the best pitcher in the league and they want their best three against the A's. It is a gamble, but if they win today and tomorrow and Felix gives them at least seven, it will pay off.

I'll definitely have to catch a few innings of that game tomorrow. See what Smardzijazija looks like in an A's uni too

Sorry Twins

Can someone erase this post. It's like I took a hit of Nitrous and blurted out the first thing that came to my mind, although that is not what happened. I don't know what happened?
