Game Thread Twins @ White Sox 1:10pm cdt 7/1/2021 ad

This team is not very good.  2019 was a fluke.  They started the 2020 season 10-2.  Since then, including the playoff losses, finished 26-24 in 202O and we see what we have today.  Other than Cruz and probably Polanco and a healthy Buxton, there is not ONE SINGLE vet that is going to lead us to anything good at this point.  Give me growing pains of the young guys every day as opposed to the crap I am seeing from this bunch. Gut this dumpster fire and start over.  GUT IT.

Donaldson has been good lately, but no amount of offense will ever overcome the amount of runs this pitching staff will continue to rack up

I guess maybe they should have put the money into the pitching staff....but they like scraping the bottom of the barrel apparently.

I'm getting a "real viagra prescribed online" popup ad, so the day hasn't been a total waste.

Ah yes, the alternative definition of a "family website".

Pitching isn’t a priority for the Twins, every year same thing. Buy some retreads and try to win with offense, that never works, oh sure you can win 100 on rare occasions but you can’t compete in the playoffs against teams with genuine ML pitching

Except last season, they went out and got some good pitching, which performed well in the postseason, while the offense laid down and died.

There isn't a silver bullet out there to fix the Twins' postseason woes. Over the course of almost two decades, they have found every way to lose imaginable.

If that is the case(sure appears to be) then we won't ever compete for a title.

And that's how you get to a streak like theirs.  That's the issue.

Perhaps the wrong day to have the Larnach/Rosario debate. 

You can’t say he’s better having played less than a half season, maybe he will be, and maybe not

I did the math on it awhile back and the Twins held a lead in over 80% of those postseason games, IIRC.

Just brutal.

That's...that's incredible.

I remember that people were hoping we would play the Cheetahs, I would rather have played the Yankees. I knew Houston had something to prove and what better team to  do that against than the Twins
