SF Giants Minor Lines, 5/27

Four thrilling one-run victories make for a happy Friday night at the park. The early morning buzz is that pitcher Chris Stratton (Tupelo HS, Mississippi State) has been called up by the San Francisco Giants. — John L. Pitts (@JohnLPitts) May 28, 2016 Well. Uh. Ok. Congratulations to Chris Stratton then.  I'll be perfectly honest. This doesn't seem like an experiment destined to go all that well to me, but congratulations to Chris nonetheless. And after all the Giants make me look dumb about these things pretty regularly. Do some magic, Rags. Stratton was due to start tonight for...

Felix Hernandez fails to stop the Twins and the unmerciful, crushing wheels of time

The Mariners King is roughed up in the third, and the offense takes a second straight off day, in a 7-2 defeat at the hands of the flippin' Twins. I've been sitting here looking at my computer screen for twenty minutes (Hi, yes, I write before the game's over. Don't look behind the curtain.) and struggling to find a way to describe this game beyond a shrug emoji and "that's baseball." There was almost no reason to expect that the Mariners would lose tonight's game against the Twins. Even far from his peak levels of performance Felix Hernandez's numbers looked like (and are) far better than...

Twins Commit Regicide, Topple King Felix, 7-2

King Felix got roughed up by the worst team in baseball because you were on your way to the cabin and don't even know it happened until you got a good wi-fi signal in Osakis or wherever just now. Pat Dean vs. Felix Hernandez did not inspire confidence on a late Friday night.  Nor should it have, but not in the way you'd think. The worst team in baseball got to Hernandez early, Dean was ruthlessly competent, and the Twins cruised to a rare, easy, 7-2 victory in Seattle. The usual bullshit seemed to be in effect early, as Franklin Gutierrez belted a sweet solo dong in the first to give the...
