Ned Yost with a peeved look on his face after his pitcher walks Astudillo on 4 pitches. I'd be peeved too.

Geez, I just went out to my car to get my anti-depression pills, and some thief had broken in and stolen them. Dude, I hope you're happy!

And the Twins take the lead!

 

 

Against a team that's... given up over 200 more runs than it's scored...

Here's something totally off topic, but do you old timers remember Eddie Feigner and his softball team, AKA The King and His Court?Something told me to look him up.Get a load of this (from Wikipedia):

 

On February 18, 1967, Feigner appeared in a celebrity charity softball game against many Major League players. In the game Feigner struck out Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Brooks Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Maury Wills, and Harmon Killebrew all in a row.[1]

Feigner would play with a four man team. And win.

Tyler Austin is reminding me of Joey Gallo... which is both a good and bad thing. All HRs or nothing (Ks).

did it say anything about the time in the '70s when he faced the carlson brothers of slap shot fame? after a leadoff single, it went something like steve: double, jeff: double, jack: home run. then they removed the brothers from the game. (i also remember that eddie struck a guy out. from second base. wearing a blindfold.)

No Joey Gallo in Fangraphs. Are you sure you weren't thinking of Joey Callow?

I don't buy the argument that 10 extra minutes of commercials before the game are a big revenue generator. The broadcasters can just charge 2% more for the commercials between innings to make up for it. The advertisers will not pause for a moment before agreeing to that.


I’m not an ad exec, but I would be willing to bet that maximum audience is at the beginning of the broadcast, eg 7 pm for a 7:10 start time.

Mrs Chief, while I wasn't paying attention: "Honey, what should I do with these week-old buns?"

 

Chief: "Try some deep knee bends."
