    Concur.

    Although, umping first base for real is a lot easier than umping first base from your TV screen.

    Watch the bag, listen for the sound of the ball hitting the glove.

    EDIT: Which is not to say it's easy, just easier.

    I also, by and large, don't have much problem with the overall job umps do behind the plate. Some games a guy has a bad game, but for the most part, they're pretty good.

    None of which, BTW, means they couldn't be improved upon by the judicious and wise use of replay.

    Now is the time for the Twins to strike, while the iron is hot. Let's talk to Liriano's agent and nail him down for a 3/30 contract. Bet he takes it now.

    It's a good thing the Twins waited to trade Liriano.

    Do you think teams will look at this and make Liriano's value decrease?

    Not much whispering going on out there.

    It certainly doesn't help his value.

    I don't understand what's happening. Butera is out there - Frankie's chewing his gum - how could this happen?

    I guess Liriano will scare away the scouts after tonight... lol

    It's not like his value is suddenly going to plummet because of this outing. But the Twins are losing some major leverage here and could end up settling for a less-than-stellar return on their biggest trade chip.

    Way to increase Liriano's trade value, Drew. Good God this is awful. Yay for me being at my first game of the season

    Well, the good news is they already missed the 2nd inning, so they absolutely cannot GIDP in every inning tonight.
