BTW, if we want to look for any kind of a silver lining in KGs start yesterday, there are a few:

 

63% str% (basically league average)

23% swingstr%...Thats excellent

 

 

I know its not a lot but considering he lacked command and velocity, that is at least something positive to take away from the debacle of yesterday.

 

But he also only had 1 GB out, compared to 6 FB outs.

 

Gausman is at his best when he is striking guys out, missing bats and getting grounders.  When he is more of a flyball pitcher, he struggles (generally speaking).

 

Yesterday he got the Ks and missed bats but the lack of command and getting the ball up in the zone killed him.

What the Twins radio PBP guys said during the game...

 

Provus: He bunts. Third base line, and this will roll past the bag. That is a ninth-inning, one-out, bunt single, in a 7-nothing game. Are you kidding me?

Gladden: Look at Paul [Molitor]. He’s staring in the dugout of Buck Showalter right now.

Provus: Wow. That’s shocking. Shocking.

Gladden: That’s cheesy.

Provus: It’s not a 2-nothing game; it’s not a 3-nothing game here. It’s 7-nothing.

Gladden: You’re talking about a young kid, Chance Sisco, and maybe he doesn’t know any better, but he’s going to find out later when he comes to Target Field.

Provus: That is one you mark down for early July [when the Orioles play in the Twin Cities].

 

And what the Twins TV PBP guys said... at least their is one sensible announcer in their crew. And it's a former player that actually had played the game

 

 

BREMER: Squaring to bunt. Are you kidding me? Good for him. [He said “good for him” with like stratospheric levels of condescension and smugness.]

BLYLEVEN: Dick, if they’re gonna put the shift on him, we saw Rosario do it earlier. It’s still the game. He didn’t break up a no-hitter. So, they give it to you, take it.

Why does it matter that its 7-0?

 

Is there a rule I don't know about that says teams must stop playing the game when its 7-0?

Literally nobody I’ve heard outside of the Twins organization is on their side on this.

Because nobody has ever come back from a 7 run lead before? We should've just conceded and not risked any injuries then right?

Yesterday, Smoak for Toronto hit 2 Homer's and 6 RBI's in the final two innings.

Then make a fucking mercy rule at 6 fucking runs if you expect the other team to roll over and pack it in. Baseball is an untimed game. You have to get those last outs.

Exactly...

 

It's kinda hard to get anybody mad at the Twinkies... really, they're easy to like and hard to hate.... but these knuckleheads did it....

Later Sunday night, Twins players were asked about the thrilling ending to the Women's NCAA Basketball title game. All of them agreed that Notre Dame's Arike Ogunbowale should have followed The Unwritten Rule of Sport by dribbling out the remaining seconds of the game with class and dignity.

Dozier hit a home run down 5-0 today.

How dare he.

Cant wait for Trea's new conspiracy. Buck agrees with the Twins and is punishing Chance for the bunt with the lack of PT.

He's probably been doing a lot of that since Sunday.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?
