Why do the Twins seem to do so little cool stuff?? They didn't double steal. They didn't bunt to advance the runners. All the stuff they don't do adds up to a lot of nothing!

Personally, if Nunez had bunted, with one out, I'd have reached through the internet and strangled him.

But see, I had a plan! Nunez bunts down the third base line, Kepler breaks early for third base, but instead of sliding, he keeps running through the bag. Third baseman fields and fires to first. Kepler scores on a shockingly aggressive play. Fun times!

 

Oh, and I forgot about Buxton. He rounds third when Kepler is half way home. On the bad throw to home, Buxton scores, too! Yahoo!

Terry grew hair and a stache? :)

 

You're used to the public Terry Ryan.  In the office he wears a rug and fake 'stache, but word has it he looks more like Tim Conway's Mr. Tudball than he does like the late Jimmie Doohan.

I volunteer to feebly pretend to try to break it up... "Oh dear.   Stop Chief.  You're going to kill him, especially if you keep at it for another 15 seconds, and get that thumb right on top of the artery."

OF defense doesn't matter......

That's the thing, though, Mike.  Arcia dropping that ball had little or nothing to do with outfield defense.

 

It wasn't range...he got there.  It wasn't a throwing issue.  

 

The ball hit him in the glove, and fell out.  What are you going to do about that?  He could stand out there and shag balls till October and not have a simlar one drop.

Dozier has been particularly bad at second this year. A very disinterested look on defense!
