Nice analysis Tom. Really enjoyed your assessments of Dobnak, Stashak, Smeltzer, Graterol and May. I think Dobnak is the real deal.

I love the way the recap writers are able to have distinctive voices.  Love your style, Cooper.  (Love all you guys, though(

 

While he's not doing it alone, Sano seems like he has been performing at an MVP-type pace lately.  He seems all grown up out there.  Literally and figuratively.  It looks like he's got an offseason job if he wants one--Mitch Trubisky and Aaron Rodgers would be having nightmares if they saw that man coming off the edge.

 

I suppose it would take some Twins losses, but it would be kind of cool if they won their 100th game precisely as the Royals lost there's.  Not to pile on the Royals, but it would just be a neat mathematical coincidence.

Someone has to mention that Sano has a titanium rod in his leg. And his hustle was worth noting too. Man, if I am a catcher I am not blocking the plate when that guy has a head of steam up 

 

All those who said, cut him, trade him, he is done.... please make your apologies as public as your criticism was. Crow is on the menu for you.

 

I am really happy for Miggie.He has found his stroke.

What has happened to the Twins offense. Can they NOT hit well at home? No homers against a weak KC starter, and nothing much against a weak bullpen. Few hits. Miss Arraez, who should be batting ledoff!


Not sure if serious?

They literally hit 4 the night before.

I went on Thursday night with Gibson starting. It was nerve wracking for most of the game because you just don't know what you have.I was glad he got pulled early because he is so slow and boring!The game is probably 30 minutes longer when he is in.

"Trevor May also has a 1.62 ERA since the start of August. Elite."

 

Thanks for pointing that out. It seems the big homers stick in my mind too much. The back to back on two pitches on September 17 against the White Sox that tied the game in the 6th at five in what would be the 9-8 victory in 12, and the 3 run bomb in Boston against Devers on September 3 (two of the 3 runs he passed on to Thorpe, thank you very much). But that is really all. Stiking out the side in the the 9th after watching them get 3 hits off Graterol............ that was very impressive.

 

Hey.... the two days I mentioned were Tuesdays. Maybe avoid Tuesdays?;)
