Another missed scoring opportunity. The baseball gods will not like our refusing their hospitality.

Danny smiling after making that diving catch. That's fun to see.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

There you go, Kenny.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

And Kenny scores!!!  

 

I'm listening on the radio.  Can anyone provide some details on Escobar's hit?  Sounded like a nice little line drive.  

 

edit: I originally called Eddie's hit a double.  I guess it was ruled a single.

Yay, Brian Duensing. Pull Correia after 80 pitches so the lefty specialist can give up a hit and a walk before getting pulled.

I keep thinking if the Twins go on a 10-game winning streak they can get to .500, and then if they play .500 after that, they'll finish at .500.

 

I don't actually keep thinking that, but look at Milwaukee. They started out 20-9, and since then they've played exactly .500 baseball, and they're still in first place.

 

In other words, put together a streak, hold steady, and things turn out good in the end.

 

I believe I'm thinking ahead of myself, perhaps to the Twins in 2018 or 2019?

Well, Burton did his job there.  Well, him and Fryer.

Has anyone mentioned Torres's padded hat? I am very proud of him for being the first (that I've seen) to wear one. Gutsy!

They did talk about it on the radio feed.  I believe he is the first to wear it.

Everyone is allowed one mistake or slip a season.  I am sure it will not happen again.
