Twins are looking good today. Now let's get some runs for Berrios!

Is the NCAA Final Four, to blame for this "slow" game thread ?

There's no Final Four games going on today, so I don't think that's an excuse...

Between Rosario and Astudillo, this team has some fun position players to watch.

I know, but there are still the activities going on.

Berrios is throwing a lot more curveballs this year than previous seasons.

He should. He has a lot more command of that pitch than most, for instance Tyler Duffey. Jose's curve isn't just for show, it's a deadly out pitch.

Man, I haven't been around on game threads much so far this year. Truth be told, I've been a bit depressed. Mrs Chief ran off with my best friend.

And I miss him.

Same question, but frozen instead of final?

Or are the offset by a week?

I should really pay more attention...

Oh, crap. My bad. Had the game on while spring cleaning and everything was going great. Sit down for 30 seconds with my feet up and we're down 2-1.

 

Sorry.

No, my bad. I jinxed him. I'll never use that phrase about his curve again.

 

I thought it was going to be a pop out. Really carried.
