  1. I got caught in a pointless phone conversation and missed how the Clevelands scored their runs. Looking at the play-by-play, perhaps it was just as well.

  2. Bert briefly talking about if the players today know what Marvin Miller did for the players and got the paid. I wish they would have let him talk about that instead of cutting him off for a highlight of some other game.

              1. Saving him in tonight's game isn't the point. Saving him for the season is the point. Why make him throw a couple of extra innings in a game we're almost certainly not going to win anyway? To save Oliver Drake?

      1. I wonder if we see him in AA to start next year, with a projected call up early in 2020. It will be interesting to see who mans our infield in 2020. Polanco, Lewis, Sano, and Rooker is my guess with Gordon in the mix. Sano and Rooker could be splitting first base/DH, so potentially we could see Polanco, Lewis and Gordon as regulars in the line up.

        Extending the line up out, I think we see Kirilloff in the mix with Buxton (if ever healthy), Rosario, and either Wade or Kepler. Kepler could end up as our first baseman too. Catchers could be Jeffers at that point the way he is raking, with a veteran lefty platoon.

        Rotation: Berrios, Romero, Gonzalves, Thorpe and a veteran placeholder for Graterol.

        Barring injury or any of these prospects laying and egg, I would be surprised to see the Twins sign any free agents to more than a 1 year contract next season.
