    1. Berrios has had a problem with that in the past, but so far not so this year. He did well in his first start of the season and is doing well tonight.

  1. LoMo did not look pleased on that one.

    I’m curious why they didn’t make this two 1-game series(es)? Then each team only loses one home gate. I suppose the Twins and MLB worked it out to their liking, I guess.

    1. Same, but got to hear Provus casually mention FanGraphs. I'm sure he's mentioned it before but I don't remember it.

  2. Dizz and Provus are upset about Berrios leaving the game. I'm not sure that having him leave here is the wrong decision...

    1. Well, there's always the chance that Molitor has some information that I don't, but I'd have left him in.

    2. Facing the bottom of the order the third time, having finished the seventh with 84 pitches. I would have left him in because it's the bottom of the order but had a relatively short leash.

      1. It's a long season, but I'd at least have sent him out for one more batter and then take him out so the crowd could acknowledge him.

        Oh, and I am still liking Reed a whole lot.

  3. Berríos has allowed runs in only one of his four starts this season. Also only walked one so far this year.

  4. So the Twins decided to let Cleveland try out the Manfred Rule of starting with a man on second.

  5. Vaguely surprised they let Escobar advance. While he doesn't matter for the score, it does eliminate the GIDP.

  6. That's the 3rd HR allowed by Hildy after allowing just 4 all of last year. His Ks have plummeted as well. That was just his 3rd of the season in 7 2/3 innings.

    1. I remain convinced there's either a flaw in his mechanics or he's hurt. Either way, they need to take him off the roster, either by sending him to AAA or the DL, because he's not getting anything accomplished by pitching in the majors.

  7. ESPN crew getting seriously GOML about proper bunting technique.

    I mean, I guess if you're going to do it, do it right or don't give up the out.

  8. LaMarre had more hits in this game than he had in 38 career at bats coming into this season - and he wasn't even in the starting lineup.
