  1. This is here. Two Bombas in the first after Berrios escaped a bases loaded, one-out sitch in the top.

  2. A's tv guys were talking about Tony O. Fosse with a great story about how Tony had this timing mechanism where he back-swung at the beginning of the delivery and knocked Fosse's glove off. Fosse said he had to start keeping his glove on the ground to avoid it.

    Also said Tony once threw him out at the plate by 15 feet. Heh.

      1. I’m making tatchoes. Red chili, whatever protein was in the freezer(pig I think), cheese, creek chili sour cream, and lots of beers. Yeah, dr. Chop is out of town, what’s it to you?

  3. Home runs are cool and all, but I'm not a big fan of the "home run or nothing" offense. You need to score runs other ways sometimes, too.

    1. Perhaps you could random.org some singles.

      To be fair, the Twins are second in batting average. They've just had some bad sequencing luck lately.

  4. Berrios had pretty good stuff, but not the best command tonight. Excited to not see Harper after last night.

  5. I'll have you guys know that that was exactly as annoying in person.

    Also, it would have been less annoying if the frickin offense would do something.

    1. Atlantic League is testing I think a rule where you have to step off the rubber. I'm in favor

    2. Littell absolutely balked on the fairly close pickoff throw right before the homeruns.

    1. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrd.

      Roy was also pretty sure there's never been a more dumber play ever of all time.

  6. 54.4% win expectancy to zero in one pitch. Intentionally walking Rosario lowered the win expectancy for the Twins by a small amount and we got, uh, lucky enough to be one of the reasons why.

  7. Why didn't Cave run for Garver in the 8th if he was coming in to play right field anyway? He would have made it to third on the single and scored on the Cruz groundout.
