This is here.
And so is the same bullpen.
Oh, thanks. Now squeeze some lemon juice on my paper cut.
Bux out again. TV guys are suggesting tendinitis.
All the GOMLer commenters on Twins Daily 'bout starting riots over the amount of time off he's been getting. Dudes, do you think he's not playing because he might get tired??
Pussy bilateral something something.
Pat Reusse on the Tweets machine has been stirring the "Buxton dont need no days off" pot most of the season. kind of changed his tone yesterday after he reported on the sore knee not looking good. but the comments under his tweet still follow that "Buxton is weak" mentality. Reminds me of the Joe Mauer hate (and some folks still carry that!)
TL:DR fans are rude
If Lou F. Gehrig himself was the highest paid player on the team, they'd be on his case for maybe thinking about kinda taking a day off.
Nick gordon??? NICK GORDON!
Great outing for Smeltzer. Get him some more runs!
Get Kiriloff some Man Muscles.
Bringing Smeltzer out for the 7th? What could go wrong?
Huh. Smith. When did he warm up?
Smeltzer still had 1 good inning left in his arm
Oh good, we're pulling Smeltzer too early again. It worked out so well the last time...
Find the damn plate.
It's Second-Guess Rocco time, ladies and gentlemen; grab your lawn chair and get a healthy grip on your canes -- here we go!
Is it second guessing if you point it out before it happens?
It's all good! And by that, I mean nothing is good.
It's kind of no-win. Smeltzer was at around 95 pitches.
92 pitches. His previous two starts went 96 pitches so could have pushed it to 100 or so. He doesn't have to finish the inning. Gonzalez and Reyes bat right but Gimenez is a lefty. Smeltzer had a start go 101 pitches to end May.
Yea, my point was the Rocco dilemma. If he sticks with Smeltzer and Smeltzer gets tagged, he went too long. If he pulls him and the bullpen immediately fails, he pulled too early.
This doesn't look promising.
Wow. Are they going to escape this?
Gio: hands of lead, mind of steal
an unnecessary high wire act by Joe Smith
Well, I'll be darned.
Wow. Wriggle, wriggle.
Two inning save for Duran?
He has to get two more outs for that to be a possibility.
Tunes in to see a slim, late inning lead. Contemplates Grandpa Simpsoning this.
Y U NO HATE YOURSELF?
How the hell was that a hit batsman?
Duran does seem to be what they hoped Graterol would be. Great stuff.
Luis is due
Luis is officially in a slump. Hit 'em where they ain't, Luis!
Correa has been raking this series.
Kepler should stick with bobbers when he goes fishing.
Sanchez is the quintessential high-risk, low-reward hitter. Change my mind.
12 plate appearances with a runner on base: Twins are 0-for-12, and have not advanced a runner once.
Seriously? Are there degree of difficulty bonus points in the standings?
well, there is now
Strap in. It's gonna be a bumpy finish.
kinda thinking this story only ends one way...
The hook seemed a bit early.
Miranda saved the game.
Throw hits the runner is an out on the playground, right.
Nice scoop by Miranda.
wouldnt be the worst thing to walk Kwan
Looks like we play better when we DON'T have insurance runs
Never in doubt.
Phil and family got to see a tense one -- glad they got a winner
It was a fun one. The tense moments were a blast - felt like we saw way more action than we actually did.
Neitzsche (8) had the time of his life. Even sitting in the nosebleeds I think the mics might have picked him up a few times...
So Twins score 5 runs and 10 runs and lose both games, but score 1 run and get the win. Baseball is weird.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
