Twins broadcaster's prediction of Gavin Sheets' 'everlasting memory' turns out to be really, really wrong


(670 The Score) Well, the comment sounded good when he initially made it. The problem was there were still two innings left.

After Minnesota ace Jose Berrios struck out Chicago White Sox outfielder Gavin Sheets on a nasty changeup for the first out of the bottom of the fifth inning of the doubleheader nightcap Monday night, Twins television play-by-play man Dick Bremer made a prediction about where Sheets’ mind would wander when he went to sleep later.

“That’s going to be the everlasting memory of Gavin Sheets of Berrios, at least tonight,” Bremer said as the Twins led 3-1 at the time. “He’s probably been told, ‘Yeah, the guy throws mid-90s and has a wipeout slider,' and Sheets is going to toss and turn tonight thinking about his changeup.”

It’s fair to say that wasn’t the case. Two innings later, Sheets hit a walk-off homer off Berrios, a three-run blast to lift the White Sox to a comeback 5-3 win. Check it out below.
