GAME THREAD: Twins @ Angels, 4/16/21, 8:38 PM CDT


Well, it would appear our bullpen is a bigger issue than I thought... yikes. I thought Dobnak was turning a corner with his new pitch, and Thielbar had looked good up until he suddenly forgot how to throw the curveball...

Our bullpen has a 10+ ERA when we are ahead. Why? And when we’re behind, by a little bit, it’s usually fine. Why?

When you keep sending out a future closer to mop up, this is what you deserve.

What I saw was the Angels weren’t getting good swings on Dobnak, but they were still making decent enough contact, if that makes any sense.

Total stinker after we took the lead. I just thought, maybe this one time, that we would take the lead and runaway with it. Nope. I didn’t understand going back to dobnak after we took the lead and it bit us in the butt. He had some bad luck on the two pop ups, but he’s a pitch to contact guy. That’s gonna happen moreso when he’s in the game. I’m also against the walk against trout. I get it if it’s a new AB, but not on a 2-2 count. At least throw 2 balls in the dirt and force him to take them. Odds are he will, but it’s worth the bet. As far as thorpe goes, thought he looked okay. He deserves the next start next time one of the 5 regulars can’t go. I really hope Byron buxton is back tomorrow, he’s Exactly what we need, but I’m expecting a buxton to IL, Rooker activated move tomorrow. Leads me to my final point, whenever I hear Rocco or the FO talk about an injury, I don’t believe a damn word they say. Whether it’s intentional or not, it’s the road they’ve chosen to take the entire tenure.

I said this bullpen is going to be a problem before the season even started. It's actually worse than I thought. It's probably one of the worst.

Legit question - Do we really only have four good relievers? (Duffey, Rogers, Robles, and Alcala) Because if we do we’re in SERIOUS trouble.

 

Those are the four best relievers, not sure I'd say all 4 are good

So far only Alcala is reliable...

Oh yeah. Who else do we have tho? Thorpe? Anderson? Stashak?

Thorpe probably isn’t a reliever, maybe a long man. Anderson is below league average, and stashak is probably a notch above league average. Of the 3, he is closest to being “good”
