Game Thread: Twins v Blue Jays, 8/5/22 @ 7:10pm Local Time


This pitching staff is not gonna cut it.  The trades won't help as much as hoped.  Other than the recent Detroit games, who has this staf shut down?  And with this AAA lineup what a mess.

The failed catch of the throw to first, in which beckham came off the bag, may not determine the final outcome, but it was contributory.  I looked up his profile and see him listed as a 

Tim Beckham

Positions: Shortstop, Second Baseman and Third Baseman

So Baldelli thinks he strengthens our defense by having him in the field?  A typical Baldelli screw up.

Zach Pop is a Blue Jays deadline acquisition.  Let's mess up his record too.

It's at least a better last name for a pitcher than former major leaguers Bob Walk and Johnny Gopherball.

Not to mention former big leaguer and Native American "Screaming Linedrive."

Is Urshela injured? You'd think Miranda at 1st

A situation like that just screams for a hit and run.

And we wait for the 5-4-3 of course.

That would involve a running game.  Twins refuse to even attempt running

Check out Beckham's AAA fielding stats.  He has lost all his middle infield skillz.  Trying him at 1B isn't crazy.  But he's basically a DH at this point, and he doesn't have enough bat for that, forget those AAA stats built on an unsustainable BABIP.

Provus mentioned something on the radio about assuming Urshela wasn't 100 percent.

You've decided that after one start, against one of the best hitting teams in baseball?
