'Santana showing a lot of range out there in left field this afternoon.'

You know, you're more than welcome to put up your own game thread, right? Shouldn't be entirely up to Chitown and myself. :)

They're broadcasting gophers playing basketball? I mean, I've heard of the Puppy Bowl, but this is another level!

My mom gave me her old espresso machine. Turns out chugging three espressos is not equivalent to three cups of regular coffee. Dishes are done, at least.

And Gibby gave up his first and only hit ... a 2-out homerun in the bottom of the 4th. So after 4, it's 1-0, Cards.

And he has a nice 1,2,3 inning, ending with a nice play by Adrianza.

And the Twins are on the board!

 

1-1, top 6th ... 2 on in scoring position, one out ...

Wait, wasn't Rosenthal their closer before?

Yep.  The Cards have promised him the opportunity to win a starting spot, though.  Last year, he worked as a starter in ST, briefly.  This year, it's more of a real opportunity, but the stories I've seen expect him to be more of a RH Andrew Miller.  Seung Kwan Oh took over the closing role when Rosenthal struggled last year (he also had an injury of some sort that he is supposed to be recovered from).

Game still tied in the 8th; the subs for both teams are making their way in.

Tonkin pitched the 6th and the 7th ... no hits, no walks, 3 SO.

Do you think O'Rourke vomits before each appearance because he's always getting sent in to face a bunch of right-handed hitters?

I sure wish we could face these Cardinals' spring training lineups all year. We'd have 5 Cy Young contenders by the year's end.

maybe it's a personal branding thing, like fernando rodney's arrow shot or ozzie's backflip.

Nice outing by Gibson...

 

He wasn't that good last spring, so let's hope that he's looking more like the 2015 second half version than the 2016 version.

I thought their starting lineup today was mostly starters? No?
