Buster Posey’s walkoff homer was pretty sweet. So too was MLB Network Greg Amsinger’s calling of it ahead of time. But even sweeter than that: Amsinger’s reaction to it as he watched it live in the studio, which is screencapped above and which you can see in motion at around the 1:50 mark of the video.
The Twins just announced that they have signed pitcher Michael Pineda to a two-year contract.
Pineda, 28, has a 4.05 career ERA and has struck out 9.1 batters per nine innings over 680 career major league innings.
Pineda underwent Tommy John surgery this past July, so the Twins are buying a 2018 filled mostly with rehab and a pitcher for 2019. As such, the deal is probably not too taxing financially, but could pay off pretty well for them if Pineda comes back strong.
