I live in a juniper/pinion forest. So I'm often under a pinion.

 

I'm often under a rack.

Other than Sano, who had his worst at bat in a week and a half, everyone has made pretty solid contact.

With his contact skills... if Rowson can only get him to be more selective. He could become a pretty dynamic hitter pretty quickly.

Astudillo and Castro for Gonzalez and Garver is quite a step down.

I just looked it up: the Twins record when Astudillo takes a walk is 3-3.

 

Pro tip: If you search "Tortuga" on Baseball-Reference, it redirects you to Astudillo's page.

He treats the batters box like a basketball player treats the three second lane.

What's the record when Astudillo takes a walk followed by a Castro strikeout? 

 

I wanna see how good you are.:)
