Best team in baseball against the 2nd worst team in baseball and we have our best pitcher on the mound? I'm calling it: this game is unloseable. There is NOTHING we could POSSIBLY do to LOSE this game :)


Uh oh ... that better not end up a jinx

I'm conducting an experiment to test the Twins' ability to deflect jinxes.

It's just a thing. Do you have any "things"? It is even more of a thing and the most fun, when you can say it on the first batter. Be down if you like. That must be your thing.

Nah. Being down is not my thing. Didn't intend that. Just trying to have fun.:)

There goes the no-hitter.

 

 And the shutout.

 

Have any of the other Downers mentioned that Odorizzi entered this game with a sabremetric safe dangling over his head?

 

ERA... 1.92

 

xFIP... 4.22

Well, so much for that qualifying offer for Odorizzi.

 

Let the bum hit the FA market next year!

Man, Dickbert are savaging Angel Hernandez.

 

Rightly so, don't misunderstand, but when it gets to the point where long-time "company men" in the booth are talking about how terrible you are at your job, you may in fact be terrible at your job. The MLB needs a mechanism to fire umpires.
