Arcia strikes out.  Fitting end, just as I get back.

Well, that was fun ..... not.

 

I do like these east coast times, though.

Helps that they got it finished in a crisp 2:40, 10 total runs notwithstanding.

When do we get the first tweet of Trevor Mays demotion?

Would it be useful to pay attention to the AAA game?

 

I think that's still going on.

Probably next year, what with the AAA season winding down?

 

And hopefully not.  He could figure something out.  Stranger things have happened.

Nice catch, Schafer!

 

(and yeah, i liked his effort on the Delmon Dinger.  I bet an element of the inconclusivity of it was the possibility of bouncing off the top of the wall and over.)

 

 

We can't base our decisions on what 'could have' happened.  We can only go based on the evidence that is there.  And in this case, the fan's glove was in the field of play.  It wouldn't have had any bearing on the final outcome of the game and there's no sense arguing it but for my own education, I'm very curious as to how they came to this determination.  Maybe Gardy will say something about it in postgame.

(If you mean the attempt to save the HR.) Could break a wrist or forearm on a play like that.

Looks like he just plain missed the ball. Went into the fan's glove cleanly.

I was referring to when he was on first with a runner on third and 2 outs. Didn't see that other play.

It seems to me that May is showing flashes of goodness and we might want to be more patient with him.

 

Eight strikeouts in 4.2 innings suggests to me that he may one day be a solid pitcher.  Yes, he hit two batters then gave up a grand slam, but before that he seemed to be doing pretty well.

Red Wings are possible playoff bound... Correct?

Bullpen.  Let him work some things out there.

I hope you are right but his lug nuts are loose... Because those wheels come off.

And Malaysia 370 was doing pretty well until they turned off the transponder.

I think they were two games out of the wildcard going into tonight's game but they do hold their destiny in their hands as they play Pawtucket before it's over.

I'd like May to get some confidence back.

His confidence canteen has to be bone dry right now.

Yup, and the team they're playing tonight, Buffalo is the other team in contention.

 

They're up by 1, and just got a contentious 3rd strike for the 3rd out of the 8th inning with a runner on 3rd. Batter (at least) was thrown out for arguing.

Red Wings did win the game vs. Buffalo to move past the Bison in the standings. They still trail Pawtucket by 1.5 games and must sweep the Pawsox in order to make the playoffs (2 game series). I suspect the tight race is keeping May or Milone from being "optioned" so that the Twins could add a reliever to their bullpen for the rest of the Baltimore series.
