Fien has been promoted, apparently.

I just hope that the strike zone stays the same for the remainder of this game. How sad would it be for the Yankees to score three or four this inning. Obviously, we're all thinking about it anyway.

At least Cano can't tie it up.

more like Thomas was running perfectly ON the baseline. He was kicking up chalk on every stride. ridiculous call by Blue. But it happens every game the Twins play the Yanks.

Oh, that's why he was called out. He ran the base line too well.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I'm going to disagree with the outrage on the call against Thomas at first base. I watched the play, and he was in fair territory the whole time up the baseline. He was not in the "running lane" that is marked on the field. Rule 6.05(k) and attached comment make it pretty clear the umpire called it correctly.

It sucks, but that's baseball.

(k) In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball
is being fielded to first base, he runs outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or
inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpire’s judgment in so doing interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base, in which case the ball is dead;
except that he may run outside (to the right of) the three-foot line or inside (to the
left of) the foul line to avoid a fielder attempting to field a batted ball;
Rule 6.05(k) Comment: The lines marking the three-foot lane are a part of that lane and a
batter-runner is required to have both feet within the three-foot lane or on the lines marking the lane.
The batter-runner is permitted to exit the three-foot lane by means of a step, stride, reach or slide in the
immediate vicinity of first base for the sole purpose of touching first base.

Redundant.


I'm just trying to get RB to post those pictures again. I'm having a sweet tooth attack.

Good job, Casey. Now Mr. Ryan, trade him and Doumit.

What better way to generate more value for Fien? It's risky, but it's the right thing to do: Throw him into higher leverage situations and hope he excels.

Oh, agree about bringing in Fien. I'd just like to have them win at least one game against the Yankees this year. But since Fien got out of it w/o any damage........

That's no fair. Stop examining plays applying the rules to them.

Well, personally, I didn't think he interfered with fielding the ball. It was a bad throw, which is why he was hit.
