“Clubhouse Confidential” on MLB Network is a really good, sabermetrically inclined show hosted by Brian Kenny and Friday’s episode focused on the Twins. They had me on as a guest and then immediately after my segment they interviewed general manager Terry Ryan.
You don’t see a whole lot of shows that feature a blogger and a GM back-to-back, which is why “Clubhouse Confidential” and Kenny are so fun to watch. Here’s the opening segment, which includes my appearance:
And here’s the interview with Ryan that followed:
UPDATE: The Indians have placed Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
8:46 AM: Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.
Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.
Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
