Also, it doesn't really matter, but Rocco "needs" to get tossed in that situation, in my mind.

If the Twins fall short this loss is completely on Rocco, not taking Cano out in the 6th before getting absolutely lit up. Especially when the game was 2-0 then. But agreed he should have showed a backbone and gotten tossed to stand up for his guy.

Did the ump watch the video in the inning breaks? Those pitches to Arraez were called strikes. Good for learning, I guess.

I think, in this AB, the only reason Arraez swung at the other high close ones and fouled them off, was becasue he felt he couldn't trust the umpire to make the right call. Unfortuneately, he finally gave the ump a chance, and the ump continued to fail. That AB was a walk with the and RBI, tie game, and the bases still loaded.

Spot on

This game is fun!

And it'll be a lot more fun if we score a run here. Sac fly Sanchez, let's go.

Hate to say this, but the Twins lose this 6-5.

Strikeout, strikeout, ground out to end it?

If Buxton isn't hitting in that situation, he clearly isn't being used today. 

No, and this isn't the first time it's happened. When Buxton sits, he's sitting. Period. That's what Baldelli has said, that's what Buxton has told the media as well.

None of us really expected him to PH this game.

If Arraez had the robots calling the pitches, it would a tie game and the bases still loaded. The only reason he fouled so many off, was because he couldn't trust the ump to call the high zone correctly! He finally gave him a chance to, and the ump failed massively. You say the incorrect calls all average out? It is not about average, it is about not calling them wrong. It changes every game that is played.

That what makes him a good hitter, he can adjust to everything. That ump was too much for him though
