Ugh. The Twins are preparing to blow another 5 run lead...

Hold the phone, Mauer still needs to get a bases clearing double

Brad Ausmus must think he's Terry Francona with all this bullpen activity.  I wonder if the Tigers are planning to send down 3 relievers tonight and replace them with AAA guys.

 

Very, very relieved to have Dozier knock in a run there. Boy, how often do you see a guy make a great play to end an inning, then come up the next inning with the bases loaded?  No wait, that's not how that goes.  Never mind.

OK, two-run single, I'll take that.

I thought of a way to speed up the game: a pitcher who starts an inning must finish an inning.

Wouldn't help much if I was pitching.

Another observation: If Ausmus had his infield play at regular depth there would have been a double-play (presumably), and then a ground out (Mauer); one run in. By playing the infield "in," over and over again, it has snowballed into a big wad of crap. (yeah Twins, though)

The Tigers still have 3 relievers yet, but I think this guy might be in for a long night at this point.

 

GO TWINS!!!!!

I haven't worked out all the kinks, but wouldn't it be a start? See you at the Winter Meetings to discuss ...

And here comes Al Alburquerque.  Maybe we'll get Nathan in the 8th.  That would be fun.  If we can get to a starter early in Game 1 tomorrow.....yowsah.

 

We've batted around and a half!

Well, in order to blow a 5 run lead, you have to have a five run lead, so they could technically be preparing to blow another 5 run lead by scoring those runs...
