Ok, this is NOT actually comic relief – It’s your Sunday Morning Cartoon statement…
So it’s the FINAL game of the 2014 Twins season.. for some, it comes with a sigh of relief and for others there is an anticipation of next year. I hope that everyone has a bit of both in mind.
Besides – Gibson vs Price should actually be a pretty interesting matchup!

and it’s over..
Tigers take it all by beating the Twins.. kind of weird for them but I’m sure they’re happy with it no matter what. Gibson pitched a great game for the most part. Price just did a bit better – it did turn out to be the pitchers’ duel predicted on paper though.. an interesting game.
Ok.. comic isn’t quite the word here but I laughed…
First watch this incredible bit of baseball instinct played out..
Second, watch the (unfortunately narrated) hitter/pitcher interaction.
I’m fairly sure that this wasn’t INTENDED to be as funny as it comes across… especially since it is Kevin Correia pitching.. Can you imagine what the guys are thinking? wonder what their reaction was to putting this in the play book! That would have been HILARIOUS to listen to radio play x play guy try to describe that! At least the TV guy helped with scoring instructions.
A work colleague recently brought this event to mind so I thought I would go pull the video and share the fun of baseball reviews…
So.. the new guy will make his Twins debut tonight – on this 24th birthday. Happy Birthday Kenny!

Anyone else out there hope that Hughes can really bring it tonight? I do!
