Should have watched something called "Escaping Polygamy" instead of "Escaping Victory"

Is it 2020 yet?

Just sick of it.
 
Whether it's MoY, or Falvine, or both-- plainly, bloody obvious needs not being addressed, and issues only compounded, time after time after time.
 
Gee, Paul, anyone you'd like to have a look at from down in Roch?"No, not really."
 
How about anyone but the gassed-out Hildy?
 
And while I'm at it, thanks, Jake, for allowing us to start burning the pen before the 5th was done.


Usually you can point to one or two things that cost a game...it’s hurtful when you can point out 5 routinely. Defense, base running, a bench of fields, ehire and Bobby w, a burned out reliever. Did I miss anything? The team is poorly managed and severely lacks fundamentals.

Oh well...
Good night everybody!
Or good day. I keep forgetting many longitudes are represented here... What a wonderful world!

24 starts. 8 of them 6 innings. None more.

 

2/3 of your starts by the Alleged "ace"(as dubbed in pre season) gas the bullpen.

 

Terrible. Just Terrible.

Runners getting picked off at 2nd base, fielders booting the ball all over the place, hitters swinging at terrible pitches, starting pitchers who can't get past the 5th inning.This is just a bad team, all the way around.

Twins' relievers this season seem to have incredible runs of dominance (April for Reed, Pressly, May-July for Hildy, Rodney?)and then completely fall apart and look awful for a stretch of time (Pressly's May, Reed's June, Rodney's April, Hildy April and now). Unfortunately, we have a manager who is incapable of figuring out who is cold and when. 

 

Speaking of Reed, why wasn't he pitching in a close game? He'd be a better option than Hildy for the third straight day.

July 31

Aug 4

 

Only times Reed has pitched since called back up.

Drake has pitched once since being added.

And yet, Garver HAD TO pitch Monday night.

Who's turn next to be overused?
I'd guess Magill's since he had a rest.

Reed is in the Angry Beaver doghouse for being loudly upset over Duke trade

Pioneer Press says that's 11 walkoff losses

 

To answer an earlier question.

Thanks! That’s quite a bite, even for 60 losses.

Being picked off of 2nd base is inexcusable. That’s at least the third time I’ve seen it happen to the twins (and I don’t watch every single game). It’s beyond reason.

maybe as long as it took Hunter
Like 10 years or so?

Yu must have missed Hunter's swan song season, 2015? He was still flailing. Btw, don't forget Cuddyer. :)

If I wanted balls and strikes called by a robot, I would get an Xbox!

lol what

I was responding to a post about "too many cooks in the kitchen" - but I was doing so from my phone, and my post ended up like a page behind the message I was responding to. I agree it looked like the bizarre ramblings of a lunatic!
