Twins Geezer here!

Another one of those perplexing games that begins with the Twins tearing the cover off the ball, scoring very little, leaving men stranded, bats going silent and ending with a big L.

Not sure about much, but the Twins continue to have a couple of very bad habits. The first, I have brought up before. About every 7 games, we score no runs and look like we have been hit by a Voodoo curse. The second is mentioned in my opening sentence. This one is very concerning. This is going to keep us from winning the division. As much as I hate to say it and I will cheer for them the rest of the season, the Twins will not win the Central.

This team has the inability to change game strategies during the game. If you watched Arizona last night, they began with power, then added small ball with great effectiveness and used speed to crush the Twins. A couple of different team characteristics on display with skill in the game.

What did the Twins do? Hit the ball very hard, had their starter struggling with very little (seemingly so) engagement by our manager until he looked like he had been pummeled by Mike Tyson in his prime, and left runners in scoring positions with consistency. This was an ugly game by our fearless ball club.

These games happen with some regularity, and I believe, IMHO, that this is going to continue because our dugout leader has this "set game plan" locked in his cranium under that Twins cap perched on his head, while he stares with zero expression while spitting on the field. Another loss of a type we seem to have a habit with. It will keep us from the division title as much as I hate to say it.

Go Twins,

The Geezer

I was hoping it was not just my imagination that on a regular basis the Twins score early then go to sleep. Seem most often when the other team responds to the early offense of the Twins with some runs, it almost seems like at this point the Twins say 'Oh well we tried but they are better so why bother' or 'Well if our pitchers are going to let them score, I quit!'

Tim I agree , to me it was there was a switch that was turned off at the 5th inning, turned out the lights as the party was over.

Rocco has total inflexibility to his game plan.  He is a very poor in game manager.  He has cost the team several games already with his goofy lineups, in game strategies ( or lack thereof)  and his apparent lack of feel for the game.  He usually is out managed by his opposing manager.  Twins will not win the central I'm afraid.  Nor will they make the playoffs.  When all is said and done most of it will fall on Baldelli.  Besides if we made the playoffs he would probably have Correa and Buxton sitting because it's their scheduled day off.  Remember he recently told a reporter he didn't know how to address the situation when both of them are scheduled off on the same day.  Come on.  Get real.

Sad but probably true, things can change, ---- but it could be the Twins battling the Tigers for third again. ( I dread when they play the Yankees again.)
