Way to take third Plouffe, but what the hell was up with that slide?

And once again, I relearn the lesson that the replay office has angles to look at that we don't always get to see, at least right away.

Looked out to me on the tag on the heel.

I thought he'd be called out too, but it had more to do with general pessimism about the Twins and about Plouffe specifically than any real certainty it was the correct call. Apparently the tag and the off-the-bag part of the slide didn't coincide.

I used to think it would be pretty good if Berrios could turn out to be like Stroman......maybe not so much now.

Am I crazy or was Mauer just taking practice swings right-handed?

Mlbtr reports Ervin has cleared waivers! With how he's been pitching I wonder what we could get for him?

At what point does a man say "I think I'll double-wrap a garden hose around my neck?"

Well, there's that.

Did Donaldson in any way impede Plouffe during the preparation for the slide, and would that be interference? If so, it might account for the call from NY.

Those things are not mutually exclusive.

Dozier's season had gradually gone from worrisome to excellent, but with the rest of the team settling back into its 90 loss form, he reminds me more and more of the mid-90's Knoblauch, a perennial All Star whose best years were wasted while surrounded by a collection of stiffs and kids.

Can someone replay that inning for me and tell how many runs they would have scored if that idiotic sac bunt attempt by Escobar had succeeded? TIA.

No, he just fanned on tagging him.  He missed.

Nope.Other angles showed no tag by Donaldson.
