This is a bit of an in the weeds point, but I think the Twins will have a lineup of players all OPSing 800 or above tomorrow.

Name your price, the Twins are essentially a lock to make the playoffs.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.

So many runs, so little enjoyment.

That was some Molitor-esque bullpen management tonight. Using your A relievers in a blowout.

 

Though I'm not too concerned about any appearance with fewer than 20 pitches. Gotta keep 'em sharp but...still.

A whole ton of reinforcements are coming on Sunday (I would guess at least 6 pitchers) and Dobnak and Stashak just threw multi-inning outings... I would have thrown Stashak out there today, but I don't hate the decision.

4 Games behind Dodgers, Yankees, and Astros. Keep looking ahead rather than behind.

Nevermind that all of the "A" relievers (ignoring Rogers didn't pitch) threw light innings and hadn't pitched in awhile.

So many runs, so little enjoyment.


Are you sure? I’m getting the distinct feeling that hating on Gibson is quite enjoyable for many.

I get it. Context 100% matters in the MLB schedule. Just on paper...woof! not how I'd do it.

 

It's one of the reasons I love this game.

they should win the division, but if they don’t the wild card game is nothing more than a game 163, imo. The winner of that game makes the playoffs, not a lock by those standards

Highlight of the game (replay) for me so far: Dick Bremer saying "Stashak, Dobnak, ...and Abednego."

 

Well done, sir.
