Ex-Twin Bobby Keppel makes the best ... catch ... EVER
July 15, 2013 — 5:30pm
Bobby Keppel won one game in his major league career.
Anyone remember it?
It was Game 163 for the Twins in 2009 -- the one-game playoff victory over Detroit before they went to New York and melted down against the Yankees.
Keppel has been pitching in Japan and, on Sunday, started for the first time since having shoulder surgery last season. You can dig through the web to find out his statistics, but what will be remembered from Sunday is this catch he made.
(Go to the 1:40 mark on the video and watch -- again and again.)
That's the kind of thing Nishioka was supposed to do. Right, Twins management?
