    I love how we're bunting down 2 runs in the 9th inning with only one runner on.

    Do try to keep up.
    e) Luis Perdomo and his 6 k/9 in AAA "earned" and "deserves" a look.
    f) His stuff doesn't play.
    g) He has a weak mustache.
    h) Just because.
    For the record, I do agree with them on item g).

    I was personally impressed by the intestinal fortitude it took to hold him (or Burton) back in case he was needed to save the 9th while strategically using mediocre relievers when a far less meaningful situation occurred in the 7th: no outs, two on, tie game...

    JoeC's postgame talked about the tiny strike zone the umpire had. I saw only parts of the game, but I do agree, his zone had no corners for most of the game that I saw. That said, Hendriks and Gardenhire didn't use the small zone as an excuse. I'll add that a "strike thrower" like Hendriks would benefit alot from a more generous strike zone and that I can see why he can be effective in the minors, but struggle in the big leagues. He hits the glove with a very straight 90-91 mph fastball. He has to have very good command for those pitches to be effective.
