Wonder if Gladden has anything good to say about Lombo Jr. on the radio broadcast.

If you will indulge me for a moment. (Sliding over Soapbox and getting on it)

Escobar should be on third. It's the major leagues... The Thomas ball is caught 999 times out of 1000... I don't care... Half Ass it to second... You can half ass your approach at the plate and pretty soon the team has left 1,000 base runners stranded in 3 games. The Twins are playing half assed baseball and Escobar standing on 2nd with two out is an just another example.

Escobar should be on third.

His ass, it should be fined.*

*had to rework the phrasing after yesterday's RB post

For me... Dozier starts the 2nd game of the double header just because of that fake.

Agree, plus it would also require one to listen to Gladden.

I'm gonna be nice to Clete for awhile... He just made a play on a team that doesn't look like it cares to make plays.

Great Play by Florimon...

Bad play by Morneau... Step off the flipping base and field it.

Bad throw as well though. Probably can share the blame on that one.

Florimon had no chance but he was trying with everything he's got. He had zero time to make an impossible play.

Morneau had time to assess the situation. Morneau had time to realize that the runner was already across 1st base... Morneau had time to move his feet and knock it down.

If he had zero chance then he shouldn't have thrown and saved a run from scoring

Yes I agree but when you are in the middle of that... You don't have time to assess.

It's Dive... Catch... Get Up... And throw... He wouldn't even know where the base runner is.

He was giving the team something extra trying to stop a run... If he makes a bad throw... His teammate at first has to pick him up. Kudos to Florimon... Boos for Morneau.

I guess we'll agree to disagree. I have a hard time blaming Morneau for Florimon's bad throw.

He made a great play but a bad throw. There is no boo for Mirneau on that imo

OK.. I've lost... Except.... Ummm...

If Florimon errored... It was an effort Error... If Morneau didn't error. It was because he was pylon esque.

I'll take the effort guy Everytime.

I blame Morneausie for that.

Although upon review, might have been Doumit's pitch framing.
