Akil Baddoo may never make another out

Career Game Thread Record: 23-11

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success

Make Baddoo move his feet...

Bad idea. He moved his feet very quickly.

Maybe the Twins need to try calling up a prospect who's never played in AA or AAA and just see if he can let it rip? Baddoo looks like a veteran at the plate!

I think you've got him confused with someone else.

 

That's twice today already. Are you sure that you're mind isn't slipping in its advanced age?

Today?

Wow it's nice to have a guy on the bump that can field his position.

I think it should be me. Nobody looks more like a "veteran" than I do.

Good to see we gave the Tigers the next Mike Trout while the Twins trot out Jake Cave

Morneau thought Simmons might have let up while running the bases... if so, poor effort, if no, he's slower than I thought.

Yep, I've seen enough. Baddoo will be the next Willie Mays.

Andrelton Simmons...not fast

He thought it was a standup double and jogged around first. He thought the ball would go to the corner. It hit the stands and went directly to the left fielder. Then when Simmons looked up as he rounded first, he realized, too late, that he should have been hustling.

He took a double for granted, then he got Badoo'd.

That was a rather brutal half inning.

It seems interesting to me that there have already been a couple of instances this year of Twins players not hustling on the basepaths.Maybe Rocco needs to find better balance in his relationships with players.
