Another strikeout -- if only there were a player on the bench who could make consistent contact...

Is it too late to buy low on Danny Duffy?

Is the strikeout record in jeopardy tonight?

The Indians are losing to the Reds...

 

The Twins are 9.5 GB

 

But the Twins can't touch Danny Duffy so what does it matter...

Am I being fooled by Twins hitters again where Duffy looks better than he really is?

Have I not? I ask you, what have I not read?

I have not read a list of things that you have not read. So I ask you, stop it! :)

Duffy is sure good at getting strikeouts. But at this pace he's only going to go 6 innings.

Maybe the Twins can sweep that octuple header they have schedule against the Indians in August, and make it all up in one day :)

I realize that the Twins are down 1-0, and Duffy has struck out 7 through three, but am I crazy to like Berrios and the Twins for this game?

I'd bet that Berrios goes longer than Duffy. Especially if Duffy is racking up the Ks like he is.

As I watched that ground ball to Escobar, did I see it actually past him?

Bremer says that the play by Escobar was a game changer, but couldn’t we make the argument that the shoulder high strike three call with no one out and runners on second and third was the biggest play of the game thus far?

Like Maris and Mantle, Polanco is getting pitches to hit because he's got BWilson protecting him in the order.

Nice to see Kepler warm up a bit at the plate.

I'd rather not. The guy seems to have a bit of crazy in him and not in a good way.
