You guys mind if I put the game on pause?

OK, no spoilers, anybody.

Bottom of 1st Report

 

Dozier strikes out looking.

Grossman HR - MIN up 1-0

Sano flyout to LF.

Plouffe reaches 2nd on an error by SS Correa.

Kepler flyout to CF.

 

Wow, I love how we got a HR too.

This roster ripple effect... You need to give one guy playing time and the entire infield changes. I get why the decisions are made but consistency is so key to baseball. How many years has it been since we've had a starting 9 that goes out there the majority of the time?... Subbing 1 guy has fundamentally changed our roster and lineup for this game. I really think our players could benefit from more consistent playing time, especially now that we have some semblance of quality position starters

That's great to read, as all I hear on the radio is static.


Radio broke or suthin?

Well, there's that.

Top of 2nd Report

 

Correa strikes out looking.

Gonzalez singles.

Tucker reaches 1st on Plouffe's error, Gonzalez to 2nd.

Marisnick strikes out swinging.

Castro strikes out swinging.

 

In this universe, Santana is a strikeout monster.

I like Esco-bear as a hitter. He just seems to have the knack for timely work at the plate.
