Twins 12, Guardians 8: Bats Put Together a Nine-Run Inning, Snap Losing Streak

From what I have seen since his first game, Lewis appears ready for the 'show.'  Unfortunately, shortstop is taken by Correa when he comes off the IL.

If I were making the decision, I would sit down with Royce and lay out a game plan.  It would begin with his being returned to St. Paul for roughly two weeks.  He would play 2 games a week in left field, 1 in center, 2 games at third and 1 at short.  After doing this for two or three weeks he would return to the Twins and play 2-3 games a week at both third and left.  He would also be the first reserve for Correa when he gets a day off.

I couldn't imagine him doing this well in my wildest dreams.  Yet, I think he needs to get some time at third and in left field with the Saints before doing so nightly in Target Field.

And yes, count me among those who thought Rocco waited several batters to long to pull Jax out of the game.  

The Jax decision follows the Bundy and Archer decisions! Where are all those coaches that feed him information (I hope).

Great game! There hasn't been any doubt in my mind that they should keep Lewis up here. He has proven that he's ready for any challenge, the best thing right now in his development is to learn right beside Correa. Lewis has a good shot at ROY if he he keeps this up. 

He has shown when he was MVP at AFL that he can go to any position and excel, OF or INF. He doesn't need to go back to AAA to learn anything.

He bobbled one ball and had an error on another; he was one swing from a tie game.

You do not use the Big Show to learn how to field well at short stop when you will not be playing there.

Only the worst manager in franchise history could have me screaming at the TV in a game where the Twins powered their way to 11-2 advantage. Yes Mr. Jax has been effective. But if you were paying attention instead of staring stupidly into the stadium lights you might have noticed he wasn't nearly as sharp last night. So he gives up a couple. No sweat! But the sirens should have been going off when he follows that up by walking the leadoff hitter on 4 pitches (and the reason he failed as a starter is the second time thru would often bite him on the backside.) Instead Rocco is so engaged in his game of PacMan he waits until the hitter stepping into the box has a chance to make it a one run game before he stumbles out to the mound. At least he had the cushion of having his 3 leverage guys rested but apparently Smith hasn't been stretched out enough to go beyond about 8 pitches so after 4 pitches he removes him from the game, forcing him into torching the bullpen in a game that should have been a laugher. MORON!!! Keep swinging Buck, congrats Mr. Lewis and, as always, go Twins! But until that albatross is sent packing it is impossible for me to get truly excited about a club I have been passionate about since Opening Day in the Bronx in 1961. ANY American Legion coach would be an improvement.

At least Ray had a pedigree in Baltimore. All this guy has is his bubble gum and as bad as Miller was he runs circles around this doofus. Incidentally, the GM took note of both Millers' failures and the mistake made in hiring him and got rid of him quickly. We're long past this guys expiration date.
