And the runner tried to help on the SF, but DanSan missed the plate by 20 ft, and then Suzuki missed the catch just as Bautista went past.

Jays not the slightest bit hesitant to tee off on Gibson, pretty much know he has nothing.

Did anybody else watch Rob and Dan collide in the outfield and think it the perfect metaphor for the season?

 

To be completely honest, that was my second thought. The first was, "two birds with one stone ... thanks, Toronto."

Morris is making a point valid to most players, and quite possibly one of the biggest flaws in TwinsWorld! Players are what they are, eventually. They might have one good year, but not several strung together. We seem to view players like that, even 30 year olds, as guys moving forward, not as an outlier year. (I now return you to The State Fair)

That's what good, veteran hitters do.Sometimes they even supply the other team with blindfolds.

The game and then some board and card games later with my wife, sister-in-law and brother-in-law.  Catan and exploding kittens :-)
