OMG... Awesome... I didn't even notice...

My plan was to get to 2,000 exactly and stop... Leave Twins Daily and start posting on Wolves Daily... And open a Bakery.

Just like I always do pumping gas... I end up with 20.04 and Twenty dollar bill.

I guess I have to keep going to 3,000 posts now.


You only fill your gas tank half way?

He'll be on the SiriusXm Spice Channel later this week.

Ok... Everyone vote... 86 pitches... 4-2 lead. Would you let Correia pitch the 7th... None if this after it happens stuff... Decide right now.

Is it too early to start the "how long should Correia stay in" theme?

Yes, but I have a LH and RHP ready during the inning, and let him go no more than one baserunner, then pull him.

Sure. Send him out. Two-run lead, different story entirely. As always, depends on the analysis my pitching coach gives me, but yes. Wait until someone gets on to warm anybody up.

/ Edit: my leash is longer than UR's, but it's not unlimited. As before, "don't let him lose" is a good rule of thumb, so I don't want to take him out this inning unless there are 2 baserunners.

/ Edit^2: and the leash is one baserunner longer if we get that insurance run. Darinsie, gotta get a flyball there.

Was it your fault or my fault? I'm gonna pace around my living room and think about that awhile.

Who's due up? I'd send him out but not plan on him finishing the inning. Have someone on standby.

I'm gonna let Correia start the 7th... If he gives up a lead off base runner... I would remove him for lack of originality.

I think you have to let him start, especially now with a 3-run lead. But have somebody getting loose in the bullpen - just in case. We need to win this and break the losing streak.

Then you are looking at a 4th time through the order. With a 3 run lead I'd let him put one of those three on but pull him before he gets to Bourjos.

And that changes the calculus for the 7th, for those of you warming up relievers at the beginning and taking KC out after one baserunner? Or no?
