Outs before runs, already a better start.
Maybe only 10 innings today!
Time for a Plouffe!-ian HR streak for the Doze-man!
Mastroianni leading off so now Dozier can't get a leadoff homer. Gardy is a jerk.
Joe needs LASIK.
Dozier had himself a pretty good first inning.
It was nice having that lead for 5 minutes.
It IS the second inning, after all...
Nothing good can ever come from walking Punto.
Groundkeepers don't have to touch up the infield around first base?
Hmmm, ok, one good thing.
So let's do it a second time, shall we?
two more than the Twins batters have drawn today
Hey guys, this Justin Kubell guy is kind of good.
All right, back to work I go. Get us a win guys!
Pelfrey not into this "winning" thing I guess
I would submit that signing that contract given his previous performance was an enormous win for him.
well, "winning" vs #Winning!
Gleeman: Joe Mauer should step up and not re-sign Mike Pelfrey for two years.
Is Gameday off by that much, or is Pelfrey getting squeezed a little bit?
OFFS is right - that's a career .233/.312/.331 hitter with 6 total homeruns in more than 700 AB's.
13 base runners and 15 outs.
oh geez, that was the problem -- I hadn't shut off Gameday Scout.
Two outs at the plate. No batters retired this inning.
I just caught up with this game on the DVR with generous fast-forwarding.
Not much worth saying.
Hey, I was in a couple of meetings and had some other stuff to do. I'm back now, have the Twins made their comeback yet?
Not sure if I'm more excited by our starting "pitching" or our batters' "hitting"
In defense of the hitters, they haven't done this every game. The starters, on the other hand....
AL-worst 6.35 ERA through 9 games.
5th in the AL in OPS. First in OBP. Without the good hitting the Twins would likely be 1-8.
I believe that one of these things have a better chance of heading back to towards the mean than the other.
Make that 8 games. Baseball reference hasn't documented the carnage from this game yet.
I was only referring to this game
Well, Pelfrey walking Punto and giving up a dinger to Sam freaking Fuld has convinced me that for the sake of my sanity I will not watch or listen to any more games Pelfrey starts this season. Amen.
I'll take care of the recap:
