What's wrong with my TV? The Twins' uniforms look like the clubhouse attendant put bleach in the washing machine.

Jake Cave with an opportunity to impress after a nice play on the carom..... aaaaaand, that's gone. Not a major league throw. Goes as a double in the box score, but could have been single and throw-out.

 

Berrios just goes ahead and notches the strikeout on the next batter.

Well Chief...Castro hit a double. As he slid into second I heard him yell “have you heard of me now???”

Metrics schmetrics, I don't care what they say. The eye test says he needs to have a good rest of the season for him to be my Game 1 starter. I honestly would rather have Pineda start that first game right now. Obviously things can and probably will change, but Berrios just seems like he's got an air about him. He needs to throw his changeup way more and not just flop over hittable curveballs. Again, just my opinion.

Berrios wont do a slide step, thats what bothers me, And ALL The coaches have been trying to get him to,

Easy to run on. I wonder if he tries to develop a fourth pitch during the offseason.

 

Definitely throwing more changeups through the first inning.

That's pathetic pitching right there. Friggen Niko Goodrum. Dude wouldn't even roster on the Twins. What a terrible first inning.

Frustrating at bat, but that was a battle, and not Berrios just giving in (nor Goodrum).
