Twins offense is equally as bad as last April and actually is worse because they don't have Trevor Plouffe in the lineup (no big loss) but nobody who has shown signs of replacing his production. Buxton is an embarrassment to ML baseball and Rosario has the same number of XBH as Joe Mauer. ONE! Sano is the same player we have come to know. He can hit a baseball a country mile, but he strikes out continually chasing that low outside curveball.
None of the Twins present roster will be around when this team finally become relevant again. It could be another decade for this organization.
I'm going to be "that fan" for a minute, and yes I know I often am whining. But today I counted maybe 5-6 guys that wouod probably make the roster of a majority of MLB clubs. Santana (erv not Danny LOL), dozier, Santiago, Mauer (despite being terrible at the moment he would make any club's roster), grossman perhaps, jury is still out on Kepler and sano I think. Is that it? Did I miss anyone? The rest of the guys are AAAA or average AAA quality, at best.
This entire roster needs to be blown up. How that occurs, yes, I HAVE NO IDEA, but most of these guys are flat out duds. They are completely outclassed by almost the entire division. I feel like, at this point, we are so far away from realistically competing and the entire organization, players and on field staff, needs to be turned on its head. The cubs finally had enough of 5 straight seasons losing 87 or more games and they went nuclear (of course their prospects have actually panned out, which helps).
Most have become apathetic towards this club. Would love to see the true attendance numbers for this homestand. I've seen the pics. UGLY. No one is excited about this bunch and lord help me it's going to be very tough watching some of these guys dry hump their way all over the field for another year.
