Simmons
Kepler

Allegedly studs on D

Sucked

Won't be undefeated

Should be right now.

Extras rule is stupid. Just completely stupid.

So, Colome and Kepler made errors in the 9th?

You think that's bad, you should have seen the error in the 5th.

I was listening. Gladden said it should have been a double play.

Still trying to get over the fact that we didn't lay down a bunt to start the top of the 10th. That shit would never fly on the West Coast. That's fundamental West Coast baseball, taught at every high school and college.

Kepler's play was tough, but he was there and I thought should've had it.

I really can't stand Rocco. Just a horrible manager of a game.

First off, he should have never pulled Maeda after the error on the shortstop. Maeda didn't have his best stuff, but they (the Brewers) hadn't hit a ball hard all day. That to me is way more important than minor control problems.

You would have caught it. How was it not an error? That's piss-poor official scoring.

Colome's error was a mental error as well. Throwing to 2nd base with a 2 run lead with the easy play was at 1st.

the paint-by-numbers use of the bullpen by Rocco annoys the hell out of me.


Won't the the last game the manager blows the game by his bullpen handling. Or lack of it.

This looks like a really bad defensive team. Even the barehand play by Arraez in the 5th wasn't that tough of a play. Couldn't come up with it.

That's going down as one of the most memorable and painful regular season losses in my lifetime. And yes, I know it's because it's Opening Day. SO PISSED!

That was just bad baseball. I expect to see that kind of defense out of guys wearing #87 during spring training.

I agree with pretty much everything I am reading here. Just an aggravating opening loss. A true case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. The Timberwolves would be proud.

1. Absolutely agree that Kepler should have been charged with an error. The ball was in his glove and didn't come out as a result of crashing into a wall or the ground. He simply failed to catch a ball that a major league RF should catch. Probably a home town scorekeeper wanting to give Yelich a hit.

2. Consomme got one out and two strikes on the next batter and went into self destruct mode. Hits Wong on an 0-2 count and then threw down the gauntlet to all challengers for dumbest play of the year. It was an absolute no brainer to go to first with that throw. Get the sure out in that situation. Sure there is a runner in scoring position, but you have a 3 run lead with 2 out.

3. Simmons got in the act with the Brewers second run. You're a platinum glove defender. When someone hits your glove with a throw...CATCH IT!

Even with Maeda struggling and Duffy pouring something a bit more flammable than water on the fire, the Twins should have won that game in a yawner.

Gotta get down a bunt to move the guy over in the top half of the 10th in that format. Inexcusable approach to offense.

Dobnak could pitch 200 consecutive scoreless innings including the Wold Series winners
and I’d still hate him.

Evidently Dustin told Matt that they like Arraez now.

I generally despise the sac bunt with every fiber of my being, but in the stupid extra inning scenario that MLB now employs, it makes sense. Use one out to get that runner to 3rd, where he can score on a fly ball, ground ball, passed ball, wild pitch, etc. Of course, it doesn't make much difference when none of the following hitters could make contact off of that douche Hader.
