    Definitely. Even Herrera was like that as a closer last season. We got pretty spoiled with Holland and Davis.

    Gordon is looking much better at the plate right now. No real power but spraying the ball all over the field.

    KC trails the Twins 3-2 in the 5th.

    Great throw by Alex to home plate to end the inning and get the out. It was a hoot watching the third base coach waving the runner home only to have Alex and Salvie make a great play. Alex threw a strike to home from 206 feet.

    Duffy goes to the DL. There goes our chance of postseason. :(

    For whatever random reason, I decided to look up Duffy's contract and how many years he has left. He's making 14mil this season and will make over 15mil in each of 2019, 2020 and 2021. Dude better get his stuff figured out, because that's ace money and he hasn't pitched like an ace. If need be, shut him down for the rest of the season.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Duffy and his passion, but 15mil is a lot of money for a guy that has a below .500 career record as a starter.

    I watched the first 3 innings, up 6-0 and I thought tahat we got this. I had to do some chores and quit watching. Just looked up the final score. I guess, not that supprising.

    From a Googled article

    ERA,
    "4.50: OK for a new pitcher developing in the Majors or a guy battling through some hard times, but otherwise, a 4.50 ERA isn’t going to get a player where he wants to be."

    Seems about right. Duffy's, this season 4.90, lifetime 3.91
