The Twins are doing their damnedest to bail out Clevinger on the basepaths... Are they shooting for one TOOTBLAN per inning?

Thank goodness for Google.

Is this really the major leagues? The number of base-running blunders, and now a really stupid fielding error? Wow.

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

Thank goodness for Google.

It's my favorite baseball acronym, and I maintain that it should be kept as an official stat.

Will Berrios even start a postseason game?

I wonder if the twins could trade him for a starting pitcher

Trading a guy when he's at the lowest value he will likely be is a bad way to make trades...

Sometimes it works out, ifnyou get a similar low valued player, and both can benefit from the change scenery.

But these days the Twins got some nice scenery...

Sarcasm upon sarcasm with a shake of SMH. Lovely.
