Alex Cobb pitches like he's performing Swan Lake.

It would be nice to start seeing more of that from Plouffe. The Twins desperately need it.

I think if a home run is ever overturned... The runner should be forced to run the bases backwards.

I think it's time for another Plouffe power streak. Anyone else miss what he was doing those six weeks in 2012? It was like our own little Barry Bonds, but with a normal-sized head.

I thought Arcia made a respectable effort for Longoria's drive. IMHO, some right fielders catch that ball, but most don't.

I'll accept a "one bad inning" performance by Gibson.

Arcia will be fine in the OF... Not exactly Heyward but fine enough.

However... I like the outfielders who make that catch.

Which he would have escaped with a difficult catch in the OF

Yeah, a good Major League outfielder should probably make that catch.

I've made that catch in softball... While walking 6 miles in the snow to school... Uphill both ways with 3 monkeys bouncing on my shoulders and head.
