    Gene Gomes got a reaction from kenbuddha in Pitching Coach Wes Johnson to Abruptly Leave Twins   
    As an LSU follower, I am aware that LSU’s weakness in the SEC West is starting pitching. They had a winning record in the SEC this year, several notches above even Ole Miss, who won the College World Series Sunday.
    Johnson will impact LSU recruiting and pitcher development. This starts now , not after the Twins’ season.
    Go Tigers 🐯

    Fwiw, this story from The Athletic in May does not sound like someone particularly upset with his job. It may just be a preference for college ball: 
    Baldelli has one rule: Respect your teammates. Johnson has only one, too: He can’t be the only one in that dugout believing in you. It’s one of the first things he said to Paddack when he came over: You’re one of the best in the world, don’t forget that. It resonated.
    “The past few years I’ve been searching with a little doubt on the mound not having that conviction and confidence every single pitch. Getting hit around a little bit you can search up there on the mound,” Paddack said. “(Johnson) was like, ‘Look at what you did in ’19 before you had a curveball and a slider.’ He said, you’re a better pitcher than you were in ’19. Our goal is to put it all together now.”
    Paddack calls Johnson “a little firecracker” infusing the clubhouse with positive energy. Johnson is quick to credit the staff Baldelli has assembled and the way all the new pitchers have quickly bought into what the Twins are doing. The learning is just beginning. The competition to constantly one-up the last guy and push the Twins rotation and the team forward — what Buxton dubs the “bulldog mentality” — is something Minnesota’s starters aim to continue all season.

    Would you not let him go, if you were them? He's made it clear he wants to go, he's getting double the pay.... What kind of employer would stand in his way? Would you want to work at such a place? I wouldn't.

    You don't get to choose to start a job three or four months later than needed. I have no issue with the timing. It's when the job was offered.
    I have an issue with the lower pay at the MLB level. Penny wise, pound foolish, imo.

    The college season calendar is sufficiently different than the pros', that I wonder if (at least at the big time college programs) your principle would mean never leaving one, for the other.

    Wow! Is this an article from The Onion?
    I’m hopeful they offer another option: avoid and ignore all four sports’ telecasts from Rally or Bally and Sally. And who is Tim Laudner?

    Gene Gomes got a reaction from Heiny in Do the 2021 Twins Have the Worst Pitching Staff in Team History?   
    Yes, I agree that this is an incredibly under-achieving group. It's always bothered me how almost the ENTIRE staff can fail, instead of just a couple pitchers. This has to do with desire and focus.
    Also, baseball players constantly report that they enjoy "having a routine", and "knowing my position" in the staff or lineup. With the Twins this year, the manager constantly changes the lineup order and bullpen order. Why was Rogers removed from closing at first? dunno. That has not helped him.
    The constant shuffling of everything cannot be blamed on injuries. The players don't know their set position or have a routine, and it's June.
