Wow, can’t believe Gibson threw that pitch, and I can’t believe Kipnis swung.

This team has given away far too many runs the last two months. Far too many

I can't believe we're not playing a first baseman.

And there's why you don't put someone like Adrianza at 1B.A competent, everyday 1B makes that catch just about every time.

Positional flexibility bites the Twins in the backside yet again.

Play your first baseman at first, and your outfielder in the outfield.

A perfect example of why measuring earned vs unearned runs is silly.....

You just CANNOT give runs away like that. Completely unacceptable.

He threw over at least ten times. Odds say one is going to be bad sooner or later.
