Listen: Mike Minor, Boston Red Sox And Texas Rangers discussed on The Leadoff Spot
"It prompted me to think about that yesterday Mike minor should tell me about this a minute ago pitcher for the Texas Rangers game yesterday's in the ninth inning face the Boston Red Sox any gets to a situation where he's got an opportunity for his two hundredth strike out of the year now I I should run through this actually real quick and make sure but Mike minor I don't believe has ever struck out two hundred a year now there are miles so we talked about this in baseball they're just nice round numbers like to get to twenty home runs looks nicer than nineteen I mean it is better but hitting twenty feels good right hitting thirty feels good to get those nice round what we just did the whole thing with burst poach is two thousand the number no but it's a nice round off milestone to try to get to before before the end of his managerial career as a giant might I make money by the way very good pitcher having a great season fourteen in Tampa three five nine ERA he's thrown over two hundred innings years so he's doing stuff that other pitchers in baseball are not doing help Charlie Morton of the Tampa Bay rays he's got to order plus strikeouts with one hundred eighty innings in change well yeah the silent award winner in the a a last year only when I are only three hundred eighty and so here's what happens my mind and I'm looking at is at his career strikeout numbers right now it does not look like he is ever even come close his highest total before this year was a hundred and eighty one as a member the Braves back in twenty thirteen and one forty five once hit one thirty to one so he's at one ninety nine yesterday in the ninth inning he's got an opportunity to get a strike out and and usually does on the Boston radio call. he's easier either to strike counter a one strike count there's a little pop up to the left side and here's what the the Texas Rangers decided to. one can't get the strike out any does strike. you've got to get out of an incentive. it was ridiculous I was inside. I was going to leave the game I want to get mineralization I mean Mike minor is a great guy and he's worked hard to come back surgery in two hundred tonight round number. planes. winds up with nine strikeouts today two hundred"
