...a trainer. A guy that knows how to stretch them out? I mean, other than Correa, and Kiriloff's wrist, muscle strains etc are considered "preventable" injuries. Do some stretching exercises for Pete's sake. Loosen up... The rest of us get up every day with sore muscles and go do our jobs...
MLB 2020 - pitchers who throw at Astro's players will be punished
MLB 2022 - it's ok to throw at a former Astro if the player before him hits a HR. We don't think that looks fishy. In fact, if you hit him a second time, we're not even going to acknowledge that he was hit...
Especially if it's by a last place team.
... But if I had a young catcher, and another who many consider to be the worst catcher in baseball... Wouldn't it be advantageous to have the catching coach available to speak to between innings? Talk about, you know, catcher stuff? The previous at bats, the next three coming up?
Nah, he should probably go coach 1st base instead...
1-Maybe getting rid of Donaldson wasn't a bad thing. I'm over 1000 miles away, but I could never shake the thought that he wasn't good for chemistry...
2- Buxton Buxton Buxton - please stay healthy
3- Correa has a Nelson Cruz vibe - that calm cool presence in the middle of the order that keeps teams from trying to pitch around everyone else
4-Duran Duran - see Buxton
6 - who is gonna be the closer? Please don't say Duffy.
I had a 5 but can't remember where I put it...
Got a theory that the Twins trade Duran 1/1 for an OK starter they think they can optimize. He's the Luis Arraez of this offseason. A buzzy fan-favorite at peak value with an amazing skillset that the Twins FO doesn't value too much. They've always treated relievers as fungible. I think they seriously consider flipping him.
It was funny when I logged in today. I saw I had "reactions" from both you and Mike Sixel. I knew very well that Mike would dislike whatever it was I said because he does that.. I have had virtually no interaction with him and yet he keeps disliking my posts. He never bothers to explain where my logic is flawed, he just dislikes my posts. I think it is kind of childish. I have used dislike only a couple of times and when I have I try explain why I do not agree and I did it in a cordial way. I guess this thumbs up/thumbs down thing is the norm on "social media" but I do not have a Twitter, Facebook or any other kind of page. I do not even have LinkedIn, since I have been a teacher for nearly 30 years and am heading toward retirement soon.
I think the problem with Buxton here is that so many doubled down over and over again about how much of a superstar he was and they just can't admit they are wrong. I do not like hyping up young guys. We all wanted Buxton to be great but he is not. If I say that sentence stand alone by itself, I bet a number of people would dislike it. I am sorry, but I just do not understand how that is. I appreciate the likes, though lol
