Wouldn't mind seeing more Carroll and Escobar at 3B myself. Also put me in the Sano 2014 lobby.

I don't understand the Plouffe hate. There is literally nobody else who factors into the Twins' mid-term plans at third base. Outside of maybe 1-2 more wins (which is very much up for debate), who else should be playing at third in 2013?

Carroll is 128 years old. Love the guy but he doesn't factor into the Twins' plans in 2014 and beyond.

Escobar is probably the best shortstop on the roster and is built for a utility role. Odds are heavily stacked against him hitting enough to start at short, much less third base.

No hate involved, I just don't think he's a MLB player. I don't care who we put there, just get rid of him. He certainly doesn't have a future in this organization.

Your assessment of his ability may be correct, but that doesn't change that he's better than anybody else we have for there right now. I suppose I could give Gardy a call and see if he wants me to play 3B, but I doubt that would actually improve the club.

Bottom line - he's the least bad option we have for the time being.

ashburyjohn
05-03-2013, 06:14 PM
Pushed across the first-inning run. Nice.

IdahoPilgrim
05-03-2013, 06:15 PM
OK, so what are our hopes/expectations for Hernandez today. I'd be happy with 5 innings, and ecstatic if he gets through 6 and we're ahead or tied.

I'm sure he'll start bombing homers by the time we are 20 games out.

I expect a nice first inning, with at most a harmless 2-out baserunner.

/ unwilling to predict any farther into the future than that

Yes, now please tell us about the lack of clutchness of some other Twins players, my brother. Do your powers extend to explaining how pitchers are getting by on smoke and mirrors and can't last another inning? :)

Plouffe has the talent. Hopefully some time off the last week has let him refocus and make some adjustments. He could be a very valuable player for this team going forward... even if Sano can stick at 3b.

Yeah, at this point Ryan has some very intriguing pieces for the coming several years; but it's not going to be child's play to put all these pieces together. No pushbutton managing.

I'm more optimistic about Parmelee, partly because I think he's playing out of position, but I would sure like to see both do well. We could use the help.

Gardy's not having trouble finding ways to let Arcia hit. Nice to see.

The problem with Parmelee is that if he moves to his "natural" position, he has to hit a hell of a lot more than he does right now. At least with Plouffe, you can deal with a .740 OPS if he figures out how to play third but .740 isn't going to cut it from your first baseman.

True. I guess I'm thinking he would be more comfortable hitting at first, and that it might get easier for him while playing outfield. You could easily substitute "hoping" for "thinking" there.

Wow, that was close. The Indian's TV announcer had a complete Bremergasm there.

When a reliever obviously doesn't have his stuff, why stay with him?

I came home to watch and got to see Burton struggle and Dozier boot the double play. Should have stayed at the office.

Naw, it's a good situation. Twins will win dramatically in the 11th.

I like when Pitchers come off the mound pumped. It's like a cue to the offense... I did my job... Do yours now.

That might make us miss Butera's role as a backup pitcher. Maybe Plouffe could pitch.

That's for Gardy, someone needs to wake him up when it's time to do some man'gin'.

Gardy blew another one. Fien isn't good past one inning and we didn't need to save the bullpen.

He got careless with substitutions too. That could have cost us big if the game got longer. I didn't think Willingham stood much of a chance vs. Perez in a RHP vs. RH matchup and his career numbers were 1-7 against him at the time.

The Bullpen was gonna be tagged eventually... We can't assume that Gardy can safely avoid Bullpen landlines every night.

Hernandez pitched Ok until the wheels came off and Cleveland has been stroking it pretty good lately.

And we put up 6 runs with a couple of dingers.

It was an OK night... I can live with it.

I think he was trying to win it in the 10th, so it wouldn't go much longer, and I can't fault him for that. I'd rather have him be aggressive and try to win than be passive and try not to lose.

And Fien had only thrown 13 pitches - no reason not to send him back out, although again once the runner got in scoring position it would have been reasonable to bring in a fresher arm.

And once you start going extras... Everyone has to stretch out and go extra innings because you never know how long it will go. No LOOGYS in extras.

There was no reason to think Willingham would have gotten a hit off of Perez. Willingham is hitting .214 off of RHP. Ramirez, I understood, but not Willingham. That would have allowed Hicks to remain in defensively and have Ramirez sub for Parmelee.

.214... That means that he's done it before.
