Jeepers creepers.

 

I know it's been a long night for everybody, umps included--

 

But there's simply no excuse for that strike call on Tortuga.

 

That's just disgraceful.

If Cleveland would have lost that, it would have been the epic meltdown of the year.

Arraez is one of the most valuable players on our team, in my opinion.

Sox should just give up the bomba, otherwise, they'll pay for it tomorrow.

Eh, the Twins probably don't win this one because they only scratched 2 runs across, but something's got to be done with Berrios. You can't trot this guy into a playoff series the way he's pitched the last 3 weeks.

Berrios had another bad outing, Pensacola lost a heartbreaker, and Cedar Rapids loses their first game in their playoff series. Not the best night for the Twins org

Welp...

 

Chicken dinner Not
 
We got shut down by somebody's Ace. It happens. Our "Ace" on the other hand....
 
It's too bad this September schedule wasn't flipped a bit- 1st 2 weeks are all tough teams, last 2 weeks are the bottom-feeders of the Central. If it were the other way around, it would have been perfect to rest Berriosand Gibby, and maybe even Pineda for a turn, then tune up for potential playoffs. But really can't rest those guys against BoSox, Washington, and Cleveland.  
 
Get 'em tomorrow, boys. We've got 7 more against the Tribe to come, I'd love to stay at least 5 up before we take 'em on again.

I remember that prediction. It was right around the All-Star break, right?

Actually only 6 more against the Tribe, if my math is right. 6 of the next 10 games.
