Next time, maybe, you consider picking an outfielder known for hitting the cutoff man?

45 position player pitching appearances this season.

 

How can this possibly happen with 8/9 man bullpens?

 

This is just awful management from the top down.

On some of his windups he looked like Krod but there was zero consistency with anything he did.

With CarGo, the hits just keep on coming. Or, in this case, HBP.

Except, the pitcher did more than simply breathe on him.

You gotta love Go-Go. It's funny I was saying recently that it surprised me when I looked and saw that he only played two years with the Twins. Seems like he played with them for longer - he packed a lot of excitement into those two years!
