That's who Odorizzi is. Can't we just get used to the fact that he will rarely if ever make it into the 7th inning? We have a rested bullpen with Monday and Tuesday off.


Yep. He avoids hard contact for the most part, but throws a lot of balls. In today's game he is a 5-6 inning pitcher almost everytime out.

Which team has made more outs on the bases so far this series? Both teams seem to just run into outs constantly.

 

Richard says that it appears Arraez missed the hit and run sign there.

Maybe they need to call more of them, so the players won't be caught by surprise.

Apparently a hit-and-run was on, Arraez missed the sign. At least that's what it looked like in the Twins dugout.


Yeah, but still . . . .

I don't think many people here would believe if you told them Adrianza would be hitting .290 in August - a lot of us didn't think he'd still be on the roster.

 

On another note, I still stand my what I said about Minor - I would have liked to acquire this guy, I think he's a good starter. I'd trust him a lot more than Gibson and Perez.

Schoop is capable of making major-league plays at 2B.

Schoop’s arm has saved Odo in this game.
