That's the way it goes...

But every once in a while, it goes the other way, too.

Pineda's start was really encouraging. Postseason worthy, clutch performance. Graterol probably cemented himself out of the postseason roster. The positive here is it is better to know now then for him to do that in the postseason. He is a developing superstar but not there yet.

FYI: 1 of those BBs and 1 of those hits were on Hildy.

Actually 1 walk, 1 hit batter, 2 hits, 0 outs for Graterol. 1 walk, 1 hit, 1 out for Hildenberger. Both were terrible. Both should not be on post season roster.

Bring up Kirilloff for Cave

Leave Cave alone for now. He could take Wade's spot.

I know I've said this repeatedly in the past, but I REALLY feel bad for the Twins marketing department. One of the all time great teams on the road...at home we really struggle.

And Oakland has just blown a 4 run lead. Ugh. Would dearly love for Tampa and Oakland to shut Cleveland out of the postseason.

You aren't going to win most games when you score 2 runs in 11 innings. Plus Thorpe/Graterol/Hildenberger probably aren't going to be on the postseason roster.

Thorpe might. He is another lefty option. He has strikeout ability. He and Littell would make bullpen better and both can do multiple innings as well.

You think “terrible” is the word for Graterol? I don’t. The walk was an IBB (questionable decision there) and the singles were grounders. One grounder was hit directly at a fielder that should have ended the inning.

I am watching this game on Reply after work at Midnight...and from what I heard about our pitcher, can I take back my nice words from the other night? Better luck Saturday! I might be there for luck....

And that should put an end to the absurd notion that a guy who spent most of the year in AA is a candidate to pitch in the playoffs.

Yeah, they had a lot of difficulties selling out TF last night.
