And this is why you don't bring your closer in for a non-save situation, especially after pitching 2 innings yesterday. May couldn't have gone another inning?

many teams will bring there closer in , in a tie game 9th inning or later at home. There will be no more save opportunities in that game because the only way the home team wins us with a walk off

Except that all of those 31 pitches were 16 hours ago.


As far as this bullpen goes, we can shuffle the deck a dozen different ways but it's still the same card game.

I was WRONG when I defended Falvey for doing nothing to improve the pen. My reasoning was bullpens are unpredictable one year to the next and that we made big improvements to the offense anyway.

I'm not inclined to blame the manager for using Rogers today. I reserve that for yesterday's SP. Would be nice if he could get to the sixth inning in less than 100 pitches

I would concur. The Twins lost today because Rogers and Romo needed to throw 25 plus pitches each yesterday.

Diaz was clearly windmilling.

He made the call.


And it was a very bad call.

Yep, when you have exactly two reliable guys in the bullpen, the further you get from the starting getting 18 ours, the less likely we are to win

I’m pretty sure they fly, but I almost wonder if busses would be faster. It’s like 5 hours by bus. By the time you go through security and have to wait for boarding plus any airport delays, I doubt it’s much faster. Plus, I assume they bus players from the ballpark (or wherever they park their cars) to the airport and then from the airport to the hotel. Or they could go real old school and take the train.

They aren't flying commercial.
It's still much faster for them to fly.
It's a 65 minute flight, including taxiing in and out (46 minutes in the air).
