Twins Thoughts, and changes to be made now

Posted by huhguy , 26 April 2018 · 1,690 views

#1 DFA the Putrid Bat of Robbie Grossman, while his former ability to get on base was a powerful aphrodisiac, his now lack of ability to hit or walk, has made him an unbearable burden...goodbye and good riddance Robbie

#2 -Opportunity lost, the player I have been the most interested in is Mitch Garver, cmon Mitch, hit a little and become the full time catcher, so what does he do? stink it up! Castro couldnt hit a barn and one game after watching the two hitters before him walk on pitches that werent close, what does Castro do? Come up and swing at the first pitch in the dirt..UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Garver you are blowing it big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Garver made it worse on himself by allowing a pitch to glance off his mitt in a key situation, as if if that wasnt bad enough...the then plays a ball in front of the plate worse than a little league catcher...what do we do? wait for Rorveldt i guess...sigh

#3 -Close on Rodney......As long as he is our closer we will continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory..Make Reed the Closer...nuff said,

I would guess there have been teams in the past that started 8-11 and still made it to the World Series. Plenty of time to panic.

Looks like you can double down on #3

aint that the truth?

Can't make Reed closer, he is far more valuable deployed when needed.Pressly I guess?Whats Perk up to these days?

 

 

There is sooo much wrong with this team right now that it is starting to reflect badly on the Manager and Coaches. The catcher situation is terrible, the bullpen is terrible, the discipline/strikeouts by most of the hitters has been terrible. 

Is it the coaching staff. Has the manager lost control? Is there any leadership in the clubhouse? Does anyone read reports or look at tape?

 

Hey, let's give Glen Perkins a call! better yet, BRING BACK BARTOLO COLON!

 

Don't Panic. Don't Panic.

 

A $120 million+ payroll can't be this bad!

Yes it can.Molitor continues to make bad blunders in managing.FO gets cut a little slack (more on the money line, as Pohlad will not foot the bill for an ace).Hope it gets better, another week of this and the season will be over.

Good news is the Twins have parts that should be able to bring back some mid level prospects if this goes entirely south.
