Hey RB, you just hit 9000 posts


Awesome... I didn't even notice... Thanks for pointing that out.

9000 posts would also mean approximately... 77,000 elipses.

I don't understand why we don't just bunt him over to 3rd. even if it is just the 3rd inning.

It was?

 

I know he's only been a Twin for 30 minutes but the Twins have made an inordinate number of baserunning mistakes this year and ... Molitor is on the coaching staff. Very puzzling. Maybe they're trying to be Molitoresque but only Molly was Molly.

Because you don't want to give up the out... It makes it harder to have a big inning and big innings win ball games.

Santana just needed to look to pull there... So in case he gets out... It's productive. Slapping it to the SS wasn't a good at bat. He had some pitches to play with.
