So today’s big news definitely not about a series between the bottom two teams in the AL Central.. LOL It’s all about the replay recommendations put forward by Bud Selig today. If you want to read all about it, HERE you go.
I gotta admit, I’m not a fan of coaches challenges – I’m still in favor of expanded replay but I think it should be between the umps and they should WANT to use it or face the consequences of bad decisions.. putting challenges in the hands of coaches just makes things even more antagonistic in a bad situation.
Anyway, funny how when the White Sox are in Minnesota, the rosters are up way earlier.. I don’t think getting the lineups any sooner will give Pelfrey a head start – he’s just going to have to pitch well.

While I was covering the walk-off win by the Kernels tonight, it seems the Twins were celebrating a walk-off victory of their own!
It looks to me like Mike Pelfrey did fine and the bullpen did well and Trevor Plouffe went deep.
But, while it’s not often we would hand out a BOD award to a guy who only played a few minutes of a game, Chris Herrmann’s walk-off pinch hit RBI single to beat the Bitch Sox certainly seems to warrant it. – JC
