He swings at anything. None of the pitches at bat were strikes. I guess pitchers don't have to throw a strike when facing Schoop. He will get himself out.

That's what the (loving <3 ) discipline is supposed to fix~

Smeltzer is very interesting to me as a bullpen option this year. I think long term he is a 4/5 starter, but I think he is a better left handed option out of the pen than Mejia. 

Career Game Thread Record: 18-6

 

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success

Wasn't Laudner hyping up Gallo's defense yesterday??

How many games has Gallo played in CF? (See yesterday's thread.)

Rangers may want to challenge the ruling that the run scored, if that is reviewable.

How to lose a game in two scenes starring the twins. Embarrassing

We got a run, but I'm not a fan of getting an out at 3rd and home in the same inning.

That was a disappointing way for the inning to end. At least the run stood.
Edit: Oof, nevermind. That stings

They didn't count the run? So we had runners on 2nd and 3rd no outs and didn't score? That's embarrassingly bad.

 

Terrible managing with sending Buxton to third

And we didnt even get the run...unbelievable. A hit scores buxton anyway so why try to tag up?

I couldn't believe Schoop would advance 90 feet before Buxton. Not surprised at all. Poor baserunning by Buxton.

Buxton ran the Twins out of that inning. Schoop isn't going to score any faster then Buxton can move up.

Managing? He made that decision himself.
