And Vargas strikes out in his first PA in the Futures Game.

Looking forward to seeing Berrios pitch.

Is pitching that much improved that league average is 3.9?


Roughly. It was like 3.93 a couple weeks ago, havent checked it today.

EDIT: That is MLB average, not league average.

Yes! Next to the 60s until the mound was lowered, this is the most pitcher-dominant era that I can recall.

AL average 3.94 at the moment, but starter ERA is 4.07. Twins still stink in that context, with a rotation ERA of 4.82, and they're still the worst in baseball in starter K's, trailing the next-lowest AL team by nearly 60.

Learn something new every day... I didn't realize it had lowered that much.

Berrios was really impressive. I hadn't seen him.

Looked so composed. Had some heat and could really move the ball around.

I like Escobar, but as a utility guy. I don't think he'll hold up as an everyday shortstop.

After 3 90-something-loss seasons, it's almost become an unconscious reflex for Dick to alternate between silver linings and odd tangents to draw attention away from the product on the field. But it beats going full Chernobyl on the team like Harrelson has with the Sox.

Thinking Blackmon is the best player I hadn't heard of before the Twins played his team.

Two things, probably out and how big is Kendrys arm. They just kept replaying it and all I could think was...JC is that guy ripped.

This is one of those games with everything.

Good grief.
