14 pitches may be the least I have ever seen out of a starting pitcher (non-injury, non-opener).

Eddie is benched again, probably to make him mad enough to hit a Bomba? And the new guy Romo seems really happy to be here and he is funny too. Twins win today!

 

He used to wear a shirt with the Giants that said, "I'm legal."

Wow, what a start! We had a total of 3 hits yesterday, and now 5 hits to start off today's game without a single out!

 

Let's get this win, and a 3/4 series win is pretty good. By the way, the Twins have a 32-20 road record, which is tied with the Braves for the best road record in baseball.

 

Oh, and Cleveland is up 3-0 already in the 1st inning...

And Rosario has not looked good at the plate the last few days.Give him a little time.


600-something OPS in last 6 games...and then there was the first-pitch swing he took in the 9th inning last night down by 4, on a pitch a foot outside the strike zone. That’s one way to get the manager’s attention.

Yeah, I miss being able to watch the Twins feed for things like this. I'll likely be able to catch it later, but living in Chicago the only option is the Sox feed.

 

Which, interestingly, they talked to Nova about the game yesterday. He said that his approach was to be very aggressive 1-9, because every single one 1-9 can be explosive. Said that he tried to pitch out of the zone to see who would chase. Said, with this lineup, had to pitch really smart.

Was Schoop actually hustling down the line? Or is he that slow?

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

I don't think he hustled, he only turned on the jets once he saw the ball wasn't fielded cleanly. I think he could have made it if he was going at 100%.

As is tradition.

 

They've got to come back down to earth when they have to play teams with winning percentages over .400, right?

 

RIGHT?!?!

Hit dingers. Never bunt.
