Royals trying a little small ball, a little bit too small I’d say

We say this every year, but the umping has gotten so much worse than last year

I believe we have a lot of minor league umps to replace the veteran umpires who opted out

Yup, but did I hear them say that he had none this year going into this game?

Triples are more fun than home runs; stolen bases are more fun than strikeouts; singles are more fun than walks.

I don't know, I didn't start watching until now. But if he doesn't get double plays it can only be due to no runners being on base. The amount of ground balls he gets is insane.

Correct. And only four last year, so he’s close to matching that total.

Note to Dick Bremer: The Royals are not a sister team to the Twins , they are a hated rival, and we need to treat them as such. If that bothers you maybe you could take Steve Physiocs job

We might need more than four runs to win tonight.

Nice "D", Randy.

 

Insurance runs matter! Let's tack on some more, enough of this 4-run nonsense.

Odorizzi had a glove, too. That's how you play pitcher, Dobnak. See the ball, catch the ball. Use your glove. Also... he actually looks for the ball.

Are we allowed to do that? In our previous 8 games against them, we've scored more than 4 runs once (6).

Didn’t Dobnak catch another line drive like that earlier this year?

This is getting personal: that's three line drives in two nights directly at our pitcher. I liked how nonchalant Dobnak was after catching that shot.

 

Time to turn it on, guys.
