Wow.

 

That was a shot.

 

Not sure why we needed Rodney in here, but at least he'll get a useless save for it now.

Career Game Thread Record: 2-1

41 years old.

 

Non-save situation.

 

2 big games left in this series.

 

Just....

 

It could still become a save situation...

 

but fortunately it did not.That was two quick outs after the homer.

With a four-run lead, is it just a fre?

A pitcher cannot pitch himself into a save.

Great job by late-inning guys to secure this one, and great job by the bats today!
Can't wait for Berrios tomorrow!

And because it was a non-save situation, that long fly ball that hit the flag pole was a non-homer for the purposes of determining his trade value as a closer/setup guy if the Twins are non-buyers at the deadline, right?

 

Either way, it turned out to be a fun game and an even more fun game thread. Happy weekend, all!

Everybody knows chicken always tastes better when you nearly blow the recipe, forget to set the timer and still somehow pull it off anyway :)

Great idea to link to the game recap over in the game thread. How about doing the same thing in reverse and linking the game thread to the game recap? Maybe put "Today's Game Thread" between the "Next Three Games" and "Last Three Games".

16 pitches. 0 swings and misses.

You make that sound like a bad thing.

The only sad thing about this is that you're "not really Boof Bonser."

And he lives in South Dakota. He's a bum.

Not sure how the Rays BP sizes up stats-wise,

 

But as a group, they surely lead the league in stupid looking hair-do's

 

Post of the game.Which reminds of something I never mentioned during the KC series.Does Alex Gordon look in the mirror and say - yep, this is the beard look I am going for?

Yes, in a “Rip Van Winkle” sort of way.
