      1. 'Dear Mr. Ryan

        Please send me some real pitchers. I cant handle sending out Alex Burnett everyday anymore. Thanks a mil

  1. If Hencriks can pitch like he did last game, I promise not to make fun of him for the rest of the season.

  2. This is not entirely Hendriks' fault. Both of those hits were on pitches that had great location off the plate.

  3. Casilla cleverly struck out on purpose so the Royals would leave Hochevar in to pitch to Mauer. Now that's Twins Baseball!

  4. I would feel badly for Royals fans had I not been on the other side of so many games like this already this season.

  5. Howdy. Wife and kids are out of town for the weekend so I can work on some actuarial education and some house projects.
    Dinner is a cheese plate with Tillamook cheddar and some fruit-wrapped chevre. Plus dates, almonds, and a roast beet.
    At the side is a Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.

    1. verdict on the beet: 90 minutes at 375F was not enough. Wonder if I can put the others back in despite having let them cool...

  6. I fear:
    Hendrix: Twins 2012-15 :: Hochevar: Royals 2009-12

    Because Hochevar is totally the guy to pitch 9 innings and give up only one run and lose because facing FHer, and then give up five runs in 3+ innings against a Hochevar.

    1. On the bright side our exceptions are somewhat tempered as only one of this players was the number overall pick in a draft.

    2. Hochevar two starts ago in Tampa Bay: 8IP, 0ER, 1H, 3BB, 10K, ND
      (Doubly impressive as he was apparently underwater.)

      Last start, in Boston: 8IP, 4ER, 8H, 1BB, 6K, CGL.

      So he's still more Hochevar than Hendrix has ever been.

    3. Hendriks had five Ks, no walks and no HRs allowed in 3 2/3 innings. The Royals were 10-for-16 on balls in play plus the error by Plouffe. At least four hits were on balls that were clearly out of the strike zone and only one could be described as being "left up." All four cost him runs, at least four of them in total.

    Perkins 2 saves today! The last #MNTwins player to record 2 saves in a day was Rick Lysander August 18, 1984. #Stats @glen_perkins

    I have never heard of Rick Lysander
