    Was just wondering if anyone has heard from or knows what's up with Derek Wetmore? He kind of disappeared after the Twins playoff games last year and has not been active on social media or his podcast since. He makes great content, but I am also wondering if he is ok in general. Just want to make sure he is alright. Thanks.

    Time for them to put their money where their mouth is. We are in danger of being lapped by the Sox if we stand pat. The window is about as open as can be. Jump through it.

    Baldelli 0-5 in postseason.
    Falvey/Levine 0-6.
    They build teams for the regular season, not the postseason.

    I would break up the core too.  Too mentally weak to be successful in the post-season (with a few exceptions).  Some of those extensions might not look so good pretty soon.

    Some thoughts:
     
    1. I want a bullpen full of guys who throw 95 plus, not 83. I don't want reclamation projects and waiver wire pickups to be "brights spots" for a month or two in the pen. I want weapons. Do you think the Yankees or Dodgers would be trotting out Sergio Romo in the 9th inning of a post season game? Caleb Theilbar? For all the talk about how Falvine have improved the Twins pitching, this part is a failure. Not getting bullpen help at the deadline this year was a brutal mistake, and we see the results. Late runs off the bullpen cost both of these games.
     
    This becomes even more important in this day and age of starters not facing lineups a third time. That leaves 3 or 4 innings from your pen every game. Win those 3 or 4 innings consistently, and you will win a lot of games.  INCLUDING THE POST SEASON.
     
    2. I want more tough outs in the lineup. 
     
    3. The constant shifting isn't working. Used judiciously, great. As a constant, opening holes in the infield, with runners on?  No.
     
    4. Conversely, if teams are gonna shift against the Twins, well, we see what happens when teams just hit it where they ain't. But you can't bleed a single through the right side if you're swinging from the heels on every GD pitch. Kepler and Rosario should have 25 bunt singles this season because of how often the entire left side is open.
     
    5. I want the manager to manage with a greater sense of urgency, throughout the season and PARTICULARLY in the post season. Resting guys needlessly in the regular season is stupid, it doesn't mean they'll be healthy later (we of all people should know that) nor does it "save their legs." It's 4 hours of baseball, for 20 somethings for pete sakes. Regulars need to play at least 150 games, unless there's an actual medical reason to sit them. And in the post season, EVERY SINGLE AB matters. Every baserunner. Every pitch. Manage like it.

    This core group is now responsible for 1/3 of the losing streak. The previous teams had less talent and were only favored against the A's.

    Good luck signing Berrios to an extension after yanking him 75 pitches into a solid playoff performance. Both games could have been saved if the starter was allowed to go another inning and we didn't have to dig deeper into the bullpen in the 9th...

    At least Justin Morneau wasn't afraid to point out how bad the Twins approach was to the game. You have to have a plan B when the home-run isn't there (bunting,small Ball etc). Baldelli was again out-managed.
