  1. Mauer reached first in 3 out of 4 trips to the plate, but it's somehow his fault we lost? I honestly don't get how he's somehow held to superhuman standards that nobody else is.
  2. Did you happen to look in the stands during last night's game? Nobody there.
  3. Nearly half the cities in MLB are below the Maxon Dixon line or in California. To that add Seattle, Toronto, and Milwaukee which have a roof available. There's no need to have a ten day homestand in April in the coldest city in the league. There's never a guarantee for weather, of course, but your odds of having snow or a 20-something degree day in late April are a lot less than in early April.
  4. Yes, I will give him a mulligan on that first inning. He was signed late and it was about 40 degrees at game time. We'll talk again if he still looks like this on his next couple of starts.
  5. Sorry, I just don't get this notion that putting on a shift is good strategy, but bunting against it disrespects the game.
  6. I don't know why this is an issue either. If there's a runner on second and you shift, you're giving away third. No reason not to take it unless you're sitting on a ten run lead or something.
  7. The Twins splitting in New York is the prediction I found most unlikely. Given our history of futility there, I think we'd be lucky to leave Yankee Stadium with one win.
  8. I'd like to see a few more starts before we declare these guys to be the Glavine, Smoltz, and Maddux of their generation, but that sure was a fun series to watch.
  9. Stop being all rational. Didn't you see the comment at the top? Oh well, there's always next year.
  10. Have a look at numbers for prosecutions and convictions in rape cases. It's grossly under reported to police to begin with, and then only a fraction are prosecuted, and fewer still are convicted. Rape victims are further traumatized at each stage by police who often don't believe them, prosecutors who don't put perps on trial because the cases aren't slam dunks, and defense attorneys who blame the victims. Yeah, I'd say "widespread toleration" is a pretty accurate description. The #MeToo movement doesn't suggest the opposite, it's just swung the needle closer to something rational for women who are survivors of sexual assault and harassment.
  11. Based in large part on pretty much everyone she knows believing her.
