I'd like to see some predictions for September call ups.I see we are giving Johnny Field a look now.Jake Cave for a while now.Who else gets a look in September?Tyler Austin?Pineda...I hope.

We'll have to see who's floating around on waivers....

Polanco is probably never going to be an MVP candidate. He’ll likely never be an all star. But he is exactly the kind of guy teams that win have on their roster.

Moya seems to be getting the hang of this whole pitching in the major leagues thing.

Well now, a Twins coach actually got thrown out of a game?

Don't blame him, even with a large strike zone you can't call some of those pitches strikes. I've been fortunate enough to watch this entire day game so far and there's been zero consistency which is the worst to deal with as a hitter.

Seems to me you have to go with Drake or Reed, right?

I'm watching gameday on the phone so haven't seen any video.

Nobody wins with an inconsistent strike zone.Awfully hard to pitch with an inconsistent zone too.

 

All I ask from an umpire is consistency.Big zone, tight zone, whatever.Just be consistent.Players will adjust.

So Moya gets 2 outs, now at 2.2IP, and a lefty up, and NOW you change pitchers?

 

Um, ok.

You would think. But Molitor has shown time and again if he doesn't trust a reliever, they don't get used.

or abused.

1 pitch out to end the 7th. That'll keep the work load off.

Well done.

Gonsalves, Romero (again), Austin is too obvious which means he won't be up, Wade, and for the heck of it, why not Lewis?

I'm a little more worried about innings for both Gonsalves and Romero, so I'm thinking they might not get the call.Wade...yeah, he's hanging around out there.

Adrian Johnson is known to have a consistently inconsistent strike zone.

He’s best known, though, for calling a ball off the bat of Carlos Beltran foul even though it appeared to kick up chalk and thus preserve Johan Santana’s no hitter with the Mets.

Outside of one really bad game, we've really battled Cleveland tough this year...so we've got that goin' for us...which is nice.
