Game Thread "Get Away" Twins vs Rangers 12:10pm cdt 5/6/2021 ad


Losing 3 straight to the Rangers is bad. Really bad. It's time to accept that this team isn't a legitimate contender, and reevaluate your expectations when watching games. I'll still watch when I can, and enjoy the players that are on the team, but this team isn't anything more than a .500 baseball team the rest of the year.

Meh, looks like my intro writing luck has turned...

 

Seemed like i couldn't lose in April, despite the fortunes of the team. Now, not so much.

 

Anyway, i look forward to us sweeping every game i don't introduce. It could be a good month indeed!

Roster changes needed?  maybe not an overhaul, but sure would send some guys down to play everyday and learn to hit the baseball.  Or maybe, just maybe Cruz isn't the mentor clubhouse leader we thought he was with Sano and others.  How many games have we had double digits K's.  Bomba Mentality, live and die by the long ball.  Team is awful thus far

Can't blame Rocco for not getting a hit there......this team is just not right right now.

There’s a laundry list of things you can blame on Baldelli.

 

Isn’t his only job to get the team “right?” Unless they’re also paying him for janitorial services in the clubhouse.

It’s time to get rid of Baldelli. What an awful manager.

The lineup not hitting is not Rocco’s fault; A reliever who’s been rock solid thus far giving up a game-tying HR to catcher I’ve never heard of is not Rocco’s fault; Phil Cuzzi being an a-s-s is not Rocco’s fault

 

Falvey, I can understand but not Baldelli.

Hate to repeat a comment I made in another thread after the heat of battle, but I think we're seeing this team for what it really is - a non-contender. It's time to shift from a mindset of playing mediocre vets to stay a game or 3 more competitive and to move to developing younger players so we can hit the ground running next year. Moves to make ASAP:

 

Shoemaker released, Thorpe back up in the rotation (as soon as the rules allow).

Cave demoted or released, Larnach up. 

Law up, Theilbar down.

Sano to AAA to find his swing when Kirilloff ready to come off the IL. 

Find high leverage innings for Alcala, room for relievers from AAA.

 

Let's face it guys, this team doesn't have "it" that you need to contend. Better to get our younger players ready now than to keep older vets that don't really meaningfully contribute and aren't part of the future. Release them now and they can find a place to catch on.
