Runner on third, less than two outs, can't get him home. Typical.
Gotta be happy if you're Nolasco - staked to an early lead and had a short first inning of work despite being a little wild.
I'm not complaining. Good change of pace from the early scores of yester-year... i mean last year. Had been hoping to see Dozier lead off 3 innings in a row, but oh well.
Fuld with a wealth distribution play right there.
Can we go back to Effectively Wild Nolasco?
I'm guessing four runs won't be enough.
Just saw Reusse ribbing Mayer on twitter for RBI total vs Fulds. Why are people bashing the guy who will likely end up being our best statistical hitter by end of season? He will be the reason why this offense continues to be successful long-term.
People that want to complain about one of top offenses currently, should be whining about Flo and Hicks.
and the Twins have restored life to David DeJesus this series.
I'm sad that we paid for this April from Ricky. Hopefully he goes to the eye doctor soon.
Nolasco. Why? Show some life, please.
Rays broadcast team is dissecting Nolasco's delivery flaws. Wonder if Anderson can tap into this and find a fix.
Today is a perfect example of why I put no stock in catchers framing capability statistics or pitchers not getting certain pitches called strikes. Nolasco is all over the place. The home plate umpire is not going to give him anything close if Suzuki sets up inside and Nolasco misses or is close outside because the umpire will set up based on where the catcher sets up.
Is it just me, or when Nolasco pitches, can anyone else hear Lou Brown saying "Enough with the curveball, Ricky. Give 'em the heater."
I do now!
