Game Thread x2: Twins @ Guardians, Noon:10 and 6:10 CT


As many twins writers have noted, it wouldn’t take much to improve the bullpen considerably. Every team in rebuild has multiple guys that the twins could get without having to give up much in terms of prospects. But keep trying with Pagan and Duffey. I’m sure they’ll figure it out 🙄

Mind boggling we keep using him in this situation. 

I think he's the bullpen's weakest link, worse than Duffey. I have no clue why anyone here keeps defending him - is it because they don't want to feel like the Twins lost the Rogers trade or something?

Need to put Duran in first, he would have faced the heart of the Cleveland line up. Another questionable decision by Rocco.

He would have faced 9-1-2...the same batters Pagan just faced.  That's not the heart of the order.

I also believe Smeltzer could have and should have gone another inning, but Rocco’s main goal is getting relievers confidence back whatever the cost to the team. 

Smeltzer threw 95 pitches.  They aren't going to allow pitchers to start a new inning with that many pitchers thrown.  That just is what it is.

Yes duran is only used in the 9th, my mistake 

Well pick a complaint. Do you want Duran used as a closer like you complain about constantly while saying he should only be used in the 9th or do you want him used in the 8th? Can't have it both ways. Either you want Duran as the closer thrown in the 9th inning of games the Twins are leading by 3 or fewer or you want him used the way Rocco has used him this year.
