See, borderline! You didn't mention Curly!

I wouldn't be surprised. But doesn't he have to announce the protest at the time of the play? Maybe that's what he was doing out there. But I remember in past situations that it was known almost immediately to the announcing team.

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Rule book says the ball is live:"Even though an out is called (for leaving baseline) the ball remains in play in regard to any other runner"

Just jumping into this thread, but........... seriously? The Twins have no one other than Jack Morris to do the color on these games? I’ve heard him call the Twins the Tigers at least 3 times! He is irritating to listen to.

 Curly!

 

Without Jerome Howard the 3 Stooges would be a minor footnote. Curly was perhaps the most gifted comic actor in the history of film.

Man, I like this Arraez a lot.

 

Just seeing him in the box, the way he seems to recognize breaking stuff early, he looks comfortable up there.

Just now commenting on the rundown: A better fielder (like every other player on our roster, for example) would not have attempted the throw that Astudillo tried to make. The third run may have scored anyway with the runner on second base but why make that throw when the runner had just been called out?

A guess: Astudillo missed the out call by the 3rd base ump.

Chief household update: Earlier this afternoon, Mrs Chief met me at the front door wearing nothing but very sheer negligee. The trouble with that, of course, was she was just getting home from the night before.

Good inning for Jake.

 

Too bad he decided to have his warm-up session on the mound instead of the bullpen, tho...
