So, I'm guessing Tom Kelly isn't aware that the Indians are 4th best in MLB in stolen bases and the Twins are the 4th worst?

I have the sound turned off on my TV and I could still hear that line drive off the bat of Aviles all the way down here in Tucson.

Let's test that theory. Ask Joe College how far that baseball would travel in 60 minutes.


I did...

my 15 year old... Thought for a second and said... 97 Miles...

My 19 year old said it would depend on Gravity and wind resistance and he seriously doubted Masterson's ability to throw the ball 97 miles.

Yeah... We may have to wait for a Cleveland Lazy error.

I would have liked Plouffe to come up with that.

Our guy must be scoring the game today. Plouffe charged with Error on a ball that didn't even hit his glove!

Im glad... MLB'ers should have had it.

This game should be 1-0... If you also consider the botched grounder to Florimon.

Thomas could have caught it. Tough catch... People would have gushed over the catch... But catching it wasn't out of the question.

I agree, but it's kind of hard to understand what the standard is. Cabrera isn't charged with an E yesterday on a ball that he didn't even have to move for, Plouffe is charged with an error on that.

I are confuse.

Hicks needs to get in motion... Straight steal... Hit and run... It matters not. GO!!!

There is no explanation for those compared examples. Cabrera needed to be charged with an error and set on fire afterwards.

Plouffe had a much harder play.

He was safe!

Regardless... I'd send him again.
