Twins' season over.

So, in conclusion, what was your question again?

The 9 th inning is simply different. Just ask LaTroy Hawkins. Great reliever. Great stuff. Melted under 9th inning pressure. Fluorished setting up Eddie, who had nowhere near the raw stuff of Hawkins. Some guys just don’t have it upstairs. Some do. That’s why the ones that do are still going to get theirs.

Agree. What did Yogi say? "Half this game is 90% mental"?

While they're at it, they should take the numbers out of drinking too -- no more 3.2 beer!

How many did I have last night? Ah doesn't matter!

Back in the Dark Ages (1970) before teams decided they needed 12-13 pitchers, the closer combination of Ron Peranoski and Stan Williams was 17-9 with 49 saves. They each pitched 67-68 games and each had just over 110 IPs.And somehow they often pitched more than one inning in a game.

 

May and Rogers for closer combo until they prove they can't handle it.
