Took 1 pitch for Hill to be back in trouble.

I suppose that is better than "Your call is important to us. Please stay on the line and our underpaid and overworked staff will answer your calls in the order we receive them.

Tigers pitching coach really knows about Twins hitters.

Why an 0-2 fastball in the zone?

The hard contact Tigers hitters are getting off Hill is scary. Even if it's foul.

I never thought much of Rick Anderson’s approach to pitching. If it wasn’t for Gardenhire he wouldn’t work in the majors.

Is this Cruz's first game off this year?

Good job of damage control by Hill. I would be very careful next inning as he will get into the third time around for the Tigers lineup

His second, I think. Yesterday or so they said on the broadcast that he had played in 39 of 40 games.

I'm kind of fascinated at Rocco's use the #6 spot as the weak one in the lineup. 

 

Not fascinated enough to research why, but I def see a pattern.

Love it. While I don't love the universal DH, it's a huge benefit for the Twins. (Still surprised he didn't play a single OF inning last year in interleague.)

 

And it likely means his wrist is 100% this year.

Yeah, the lineup worries me. I'd rather Rocco start a more normal lineup and get those other guys some PT in games we are blowing people out in, or in games the twins are getting blown out in. Or start one dude here and there but to put all those guys in on the same day seems like too much. Hopefully they can beat up on mize today

 

Getting everyone healthy for the post-season is more important than winning an extra game or two. Heck, we could get the #4 seed and have to play the Yankees.

I wouldn't let Hill face Schoop and Cabrera.

Heh.

Who had 1-9-5 put out on their Twingo card?

Yeah, me either.

Helluva throw, and nice tag too.

That is one way to pick off a runner.

Always a bad idea to get out on the basepaths
