Apparently Brennan Miller missed 22 ball/strike calls in Saturday’s Twins game. 17 of the 22 went against the Twins.

I don't even think its bias or intentional. Umpires are just so bad at their job.

The electronic strike zone can't get here soon enough.


I was at a AAA game last year when the challenge system was in place. Each team had 3 challenges, but if successful the challenge is retained. Only pitcher, catcher or batter could challenge (I think). So really, unlimited challenges, as long as you're right.

I like it. The key was the immediate result of the challenge. No long delays with umps wearing headsets and standing around. A challenge is announced, the pitch animation is displayed on the scoreboard screen, everyone in the stadium sees the result, and play goes on. It didn't seem like a disruption at all.

Karl,
That may be all I go see this year is a Saints game...

I would like the electronic strike zone to be used permanently, no challenge system. Primarily because action happening during the pitch could be affected by the wrong call. Runner going on pitch stops running when either ball 4 is called or strike 3 ending the inning. Wonder how they deal with that in the minors.

And what if your team has some A-hole that blows all the challenges? Not fair to the other guys.

How would you blow all your challenges if there is no challenge system?

Did you see what strikes the Dodgers pitchers were given against Wallner---that goes away (thank god).

18K on a beautiful April getaway game.
The Joe Pohlad / Dave St Peter strategy of cutting team expenses is working GREAT.
SELL THE TEAM POHLADS AND GET OUT OF BASEBALL.

I'd probably be okay with that. But maybe phase it in. Use challenges for a year as a compromise and make sure it's all working okay. Then use it 100% after that.

I really think that can be handled internally. You lay down the law as to what circumstances a challenge should be made. If one idiot burns up all the challenges, you bench him the next day. His teammates wouldn't look too kindly on him either.

So they are not going to play it at all?


POSTPONED is the correct term.


They have been postponed and will play a Twinbill on Saturday.

I dig Austin Martin. That is all.

Play him every day until he proves you shouldn’t.

I don't dig Rocco, the Pohlads or Dave St Peter

Team is a mirror image of their injury prone manager.

Who ever decided Tim Laudner would be good on TV? It's bizarre, and has been for about 15 years.

Two weeks. Now batting .186

or get worse

.186
Striking out 10.7 times-per-game

If those numbers don't change, this will be the worst hitting team since the late 1800's.

Take away Correa and Kirilloff and the team is batting .160. If I were a pitcher I would be asking to be traded, immediately.

Big day for the bullpen

Rocco sends Alcala out despite 0.00 ERA
Probably one of the few with an option

Thielbar struggles
Jax gets nicked
THe defense chokes

and it's a 3-0 lead becoming a 4-3 loss

Nice work.
