Yeah, Eddie's throw was perfect. Such a shame La Tortuga couldn't get hold of that ball.

Almost a play at the plate...

Astudillo dropped the ball.


Stranding a runner at home takes talent...

Almost.

Uphill battle.

I wouldn't mind not waiting until the last inning to get it back.

Mize's WHIP entering this game: nearly 1.7.

Oh, while obviously the State Fair wasn't what it normally is this summer, but i remember catching an NPR blurb about fair food delivery, or at least to go.

How did it turn out, anyone know?

I love the Twins, but it really hard to watch them lately, even when they win. Cleveland won something like 20 games in a row over 2 years against the Tigers, but they play us like they’re in ‘27 Yankees or something.

Tigers throwing a no hitter through 3 innings isn't as great as it seems against this lineup. The Tigers could probably throw their pitching coach into the mix and get the same result. I think the average of today's Rocco constructed lineup is averaging .210 or so.  Ugly.

On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Tie game!

Glad Adrianza was able to clear the speck from his eye there...

This didn't age well thankfully! Reverse phsycology always works.
