I do not understand how Brantley watches that pitch.

I'm surprised Cruz didn't put that meatball into the seats.

I'm curious if the Twins pitchers went completely opposite of their scouting reports.

I can't recall ever seeing as many check swings and hitters guessing wrong and staring at meatballs.

GM Kashchei:

1. Cut White's fat ass
2. Call up Yordan
3. Tell Keuchel to pull his head out and sign a gd contract

Odirizzi had the best performance with the most mediocre stuff I've ever seen

Looks like he did the complete opposite of his last start

don't care for the new Altuve - 35 homer season but batting 248.

Bad trade off. I liked the old Altuve. Only 15-20 homers but hit 330.

He is pressing after the early HR success.

Was that you running in the crypts or did they use a stunt double? We could really use your answer over on the GOT thread. Thanks

Yuli is old and not very productive. Not driving the ball. Just filling a spot in the lineup. At a position where you need some offensive production.

I can run faster than Tyler White. I'm taking the throne when everyone least expects it.

They always say you only have to run faster than the slowest guy when being chased

I love me some Pina, but he's now taking up a potential offensive roster spot. Needs to sit. I actually WANT Diaz at first now...

How many teams have someone better than Yuli in the 7 hole? 8 games ago he was batting over .300 with and .850 OPS. We gotta stop overreacting during a slump.

Agreed on the over reacting and to let more of the season play out.

But, if you look at 2019 production from the first base position, Yuli is currently ranked 23rd in OPS and 40th in WAR. It's not good when you're behind Albert Pujols at this point in his career.

(and I didn't even use batting average in that response- Yuli is actually 14th by that ancient metric)
