You think maybe Gordon was sitting change up there?

 

That's partially on Suzuki.  You can't get into patterns, and you absolutely can't throw a change up belt high, middle of the late.  Rios up next, if you miss on that pitch, start over against the RH hitter up next.

This inning reminds me of last year.  Let's hope that the Twins can pick up Gibby with some runs.

Regarding catcher... I either want an offense first catcher who isn't going to lose you games behind the plate, or just a defensive wizard back there who hits 9th and probably flirts with the Mendoza line.
We are in this squishy below average, to downright bad, middle ground (with no real path out) that is pretty infuriating.

you mean a starting catcher who is 33rd out of 33 in the AL by ESPN WAR? It's not squishy, he's terrible. Hermann is 18

The entire KC team is way too cocksure of themselves.  Time to put one of em on their backside, or plant one in their ribs, IMO.  Waaaay too comfortable up there.

Ah, but you said this a lot last year, so it all evens out.  Present in the mode of absence or something.

I'm giving him a little benefit of the doubt based on a quality 2014

Well my prediction is in the toilet. I hope you are right. It has been ugly past six games.

 

The ball isn't bouncing our way, It is getting hit in the air, and over the fence.

 

Not that it matters right now, but I hope Wade Davis and Greg Holland are accused of being financial supporters of a Scientology Terrorist Cell and are thrown in prison tonight, before they have a chance to pitch.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

I'd be thrilled to see either in the game tonight.

It's been frustrating to be completely inept of late, at the plate. So this KC series has sucked, but the Milwaukee series was almost more frustrating because we were giving up early leads, but then coming back later to tie the game, only to give the lead back up.

But, but we got him for next year also! :(. In fairness, maybe he should catch a little less. Pinto really would not play any worse than Suzuki has for the last 3 weeks.
