Geez Chief sounds like you are actually paying attention to the game. Are you feeling ok?

Funny you should ask.

 

We got one of those "chair lifts" installed recently, and I'm not happy with it. In fact, you might say the thing is driving me up the wall.

Anybody that is counting on Tyler Austin to be a regular next year is delusional. He can’t field and he can’t hit anything but a cookie.

I think he can be a piece, used primarily against LH pitching, but I agree...I don't think he will end up a productive regular.

Berrios has been very ordinary the second half of the season.

As many walks in 24 innings in August as he had in 68 April and May innings combined. So... there's that.

 

Originally typed '24 August innings', but had to change it, because... they weren't.

Take a look at the Rochester squad, eliminate everyone who has been released already, and tell me who you would bring up. Or, who among those cut loose should be begged to come back.

The only one worth discussing, IMO, is the obvious one, Nick Gordon, and that topic has been hashed to death. I am an expert, by virtue of observing him at a game in Pawtucket late this season, and my firm opinion is he would be so badly overmatched that no good would come of it, either for helping the team now or for his own development.

 

The pickings are even slimmer at AA, for someone who could come up and have a realistic chance.

Ah, did not know the Twins were that thin at that position. 

 

No, no reason to shell shock a kid that would be badly overmatched at this level,

Subjectively it seemed as if the Twins were looking a little more animated and enthusiastic tonight, and then I realized it was just that my daughter had changed the channel to a delightful Pixar comedy.

Who could possibly have predicted that the euphoria of a series win against the yanks would be extinguished by a lethargic, effortless few games against the 96 loss royals?

Whoa whoa whoa... two consecutive out of seven, sunshine. Let's not leave a wasted drop of milk in that cow.

Similar to the discourse at Twins daily...it isn't.

Geez, I just went out to my car to get my anti-depression pills, and some thief had broken in and stolen them. Dude, I hope you're happy!
