Emergency thread, short and sweet. I’m in Vermont tonight and the baseball fans here are to be avoided as they are either Yankee or Red Sox fans. That says enough.

Berrios vs Boyd

Lineups:

TWINS
1. Brian Dozier ® 2B
2. Eddie Rosario (L) LF
3. Eduardo Escobar (S) 3B
4. Miguel Sano ® DH
5. Robbie Grossman (S) RF
6. Logan Morrison (L) 1B
7. Ehire Adrianza (S) SS
8. Ryan LaMarre ® CF
9. Bobby Wilson ® C

TIGERS
1. Leonys Martin (L) CF
2. Nicholas Castellanos ® RF
3. Jeimer Candelario (S) 3B
4. Victor Martinez (S) DH
5. John Hicks ® 1B
6. Niko Goodrum (S) 2B
7. Grayson Greiner ® C
8. Jose Iglesias ® SS
9. Victor Reyes (S) LF

Okay, Twins ... let’s go kick some ...

Just a reminder after that Dozier HBP. There are no other infielders on the bench. Or on the 40 man roster.

(Thinking to myself, Gordon's gotta be on the 40-man, right?). Looks at 40 man roster...nope.

Hit dingers.  Never bunt.

There must be a note to run on the Tiger centerfielder.

That throw was vintage Jacque Jones.

No, but there are about half a dozen RPs in the minors that are on the 40 man, none of whom are good enough to be on the roster.....

Is the second pitch 93 mph fastball right down the middle to Escobar a "mistake" when he swings and misses?

Found a winning strategy. Hit it toward Martin.

At one point, this is who I thought Rosario would be....but then I lost faith somewhat. But I never thought Escobar would do this. Really impressed.

He has quietly become the leader of this club, in my opinion

But none of them have Belisle's vetrenniness.
