"Cave hustling toward the line," as Jake saunters to catch the easy pop fly.

 

I think that was the definition of "saunter".

I'm limiting myself to the box score on that one. Looks like a line drive to me.

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

Great to have Morneau back in the booth.

Yep, but I quite like Kaat.

Too bad Bert tagged along with him.

Indians announcers going on endlessly about Pineda's painful-looking gyrations, wondering if he's hurt ... Why don't they just walk over to the Twins booth and ask!

I had just rewound the MLB.tv feed, looking to compare to the first inning. I don't like the looks of it, tbh.

 

But, TJS scares me, and I'll never be able to sit back and relax. I know it's just a phobia. Can't help it. Every time Big Mike shakes his arm like trying to work some kink out, I'm worried.

So what you're saying is that you're worried after literally every pitch he throws.

That was a homerun in a certain ballpark in New England.

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Yeah, I've always had lots of anxiety about catching that disease.
