They usually wait until the team visits New York or that area. The Indians go to New York one week from today.

 

Yeah, I figured that's when it was going to be which is pretty ridiculous in this day and age of being able to FaceTime your way thru meetings.

Last series Laz Diaz seemed to call a strike on a ball, only after Max aggressively jumped out of the box presuming he drew a walk. Seemed to happen again there, ump didn’t react until after Kepler did.

Brave Slumber: Are Philistine Dreams an Eclectic Reap?


I wasn't paying attention...

Braves sure woke up the second an third games...

I am sure the indians won't get caught napping neither.

I hope Happy Feet doesn't go to that when there's a runner on 3rd because if he does, that runner better be going and he'd steal home without a throw.It's ridiculous that the rules of the game allow for all that movement in his motion.

Clevinger looks like Kevin Arnold's brother on "The Wonder Years".

To steal a take from Aaron Gleeman, I really wish they'd start working Garver in at 1B to keep him in the lineup more often. I get that he's much better against lefties, but he's still OPSing .875 against righties with a 123 WRC+. Adrianza vs. righties has a 90 WRC+, and Gonzalez is even worse against righties with a 80 WRC+.

 

I've been posting that here for about a month. He would be the number 1 hitting (and probably fWAR) 1B in all of baseball, and yet he's playing half the time.....and he's playing the position most likely to result in injury. I get Mauer Deja Vu.....

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

Marwin?!?!?

 

So, in conclusion, what was your question again?

Screw MLB for allowing Puig to still be on the field.

We really miss Buxton. Kep would have had that. (I don't have confidence any of our other RF substitutes would have.)

That right there is a perfect example of the Buxton injury's trickle effect....

I really don't like Adrianza at first. I just don't get it.

After Kyles seven pitch first inning I was thinking he’ll easily get his 5+ innings tonight... now, not so much

I don't remember him being so fidgety before the windup. But I can't lay hands quickly on video of anything except with men on base, where that might end up called a balk.
