    Does Escobar get credit for getting on base for that one?
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    That looked like a Twins rundown.

    Upside of leading the league in batter k's is that they could also lead in reaching on wild pitches...

    I don't have any knee bones anymore. It's all steel and nylon.

    Is it possible that we have just witnessed Escobar reach second by being absolutely terrible multiple times.

    Picked off... but obstruction call. Escobar is getting lucky today.

They did a very admirable job in shoring up the pitching, and getting a solid veteran and mentor behind the plate was the right move, even if/when Suzuki soon ceases his Buster Posey imitation at the plate. But checking out before Christmas (just like last year!) and not bringing in some better sticks and speed right after checking off the first two boxes on their offseason checklist is very disappointing, especially when they couldn't even go out of their way in picking up a waiver guy like Bonifacio, who wouldn't have cost you a precious draft pick, or a dangerous long-term contract for an aging veteran, or much else for that matter but an expendable minor leaguer. I assume their crack market research staff thought that signing familiar names from the past instead was a better business move, I respectfully disagree with that conclusion.
    They spent most of the winter finding advertisers to fill every nook and cranny they have on radio and tv broadcast. Profits first!

    It's the new market ineffeciency.

    Escobar is on second despite having struck out AND gotten caught stealing.

    I don't think I've ever seen that. I hope I don't see that again.

    He got out twice but somehow is on 2nd base.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Escobar must have a baseball angel on his shoulder or something. That's definitely two strokes of luck in the same inning.

    They need some way to support the goofy Pohlad.

    Assuming your surprise stems from the good outcome and not his being repeatedly terrible.

    Giving away out kills teams. The Twins need to have the mustard to take advantage.

    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.
