The Rays sideline guy... interviewed Joe Maddon after commercial break.
Q: Why is Zobrist playing 2nd today?
A: Well Moore and Hellickson are fly ball pitchers but the Twins put the ball on the ground more than most teams.
Seems to be working so far
Take a picture folks. We had a shift on
I will say this about the 2012 Twins. I do believe that even being down 8-2 in the 4th, that they could conceivably still win this game.
Couldn't say that about the injury plaqued 2011 club.
Doumit says, "suppress this."
FWIW Twins have scored 2nd most runs since all star break, behind only the Angels
edit: 5 more Twins innings comin rubes, have faith.
46 Hellicksons in the stands tonight
"Rubes" gives me horrible, horrible flashbacks to a certain armpit of a forum.
Ben is just too fast...
It wouldn't be a Twins game without making an unnecessary out on the bases.
I wonder which is greater - the number of bases that Revere has taken over and above the average player solely on his speed vs. the number of times he's screwed the pooch on the bases?
Welcome AL East hitters to craptastic AL central pitching.
When you got young pitching you can expect this, where is Nishi when you need him.
The V-queens are worst than the Twins!
