Get used to the life kid, this is the profession you have chosen. Brandon Morrow announced in camp that he would be a closer. With a fastball north of 95 why not? Last night he came on with a 2 run lead in the ninth. He got Joe Crede on a swinging strike 3 then Delmon Young flew out to centerfield. With 2 outs, Morrow went 3 oh to Carlos Gomez. He worked the count full then lost him. Morrow would issue two more walks to left handed batters missing on the outside of the plate. That’s when Don Wakamatsu took out Morrow for Miguel Batista. An infield hit and base knock later,the Twins plated the winning run. So it is with closing from two outs and a full count to a loss. Should Morrow have stayed on to face the music with bases loaded? I think so. Hero or goat? That’s the way it works. Join us for the show Thursday at 3.
