Berrios is just another disappointment on the Twins pitching staff. He’s no ace and I wouldn’t be comfortable giving him the ball in any game against a team with a winning record. Ace on this staff has to be Pineda, can’t give it to Jake, he rarely goes six innings. On offense , what’s gonna be done about Buxton, his constant trips to the IL have hurt this team, he needs to quit crashing the wall with reckless abandon.

Meatball Berrios

 

Mamma Mia! Really, though, that 2nd inning weren't no better. That deep flyball to Kep and hot shot grounder to Sano were off pitches right down Broadway.

every time Buxton injures himself and costs us wins or every time Berrios has a shaky start

An inch closer to Garver's sweet spot and that would have been gone.

So question of the day... Should Arraez be our leadoff hitter? Not prototypical in terms of walks, but he takes good at bats and has such a high average that the OBP is over .400...

I think so. Just slide everybody down a spot in the order.

 

1. Arraez

2. Kepler

3. Polanco

4. Cruz

5. Rosario

6. Sano

7. Cron

8. Gonzalez

9. Castro

 

Makes a lot of sense.

Can’t call him Ace, but can we agree on Deuce?

We might see more of that next season. Arraez has batted at the top a few times this season but why mess with things that have worked (Kepler at top, etc)
