Sano's poor attempted bare-handed play costs a run

Is it 2020 yet?

Stinkorizzi did okay other than his pitch count!

How does sano continue to be fooled by the breaking ball low and away in the dirt?

How does Odorizzi burn through so many pitches?? He only had like 2 walks and no K's?? It's just amazing how his pitch counts get so high all of the time.

Maybe it will inspire 'em to make up for 'em with the bat.

#24 always been kind of a sacred number, mainly cuz of Willy Mays, and less so Griffey Jr.

 

Seeing Logan Forsythe take the number caused curiosity, especially seeing LaMarre had it earlier this season.

 

Notable Twin #24s, in my order of importance for my enjoyment:

 

1. Willie Norwood

2. Shane Mack

3. Tom Brunansky

4. Soup Campbell

5. Trevor Plouffe

6. Mike Lamb

 

 

Others include Matt Lecroy, Rondell White, Ricardo Ingram, Jaime Garcia, and going back to the 50's and the Senators, the immortal Bunky Stewart.

It still kinda bums me out that May didn't get more opportunity as a starter before we moved him to the pen. On the bright side though, I think he has the potential to be a solid setup guy or high leverage reliever, and I really hope he reaches that potential.

I have seen enough of Morrison in the field. He might as unathletic as Josh Willingham.

He was struggling big time in AAA as a starter... I always liked him as a starter more, but signs were on the wall that he wasn't going to do very well as a starter this season.

Feels like a 6 or 8 run deficit, but only down 2-1 going into 8th

I should've specified, I more meant prior to his injury, when we first moved him to the pen. No surprise at all that he's pitching out of the pen on the big league club this season.
