  1. Sayno can go.. along with Lurch ( Larnach), Rooker, Garver and anyone else that isn't a lock to be part of the team after this rebuild... and they are rebuilding.. any team that has ZERO proven Starting pitchers ( including Bud Bundy and his shoulder..) is in rebuild mode... oh they may lie to sell more tickets.. retool... sounds like a penis transplant.. .. but even an average rotation has virtually no chance of being anything more than a pretender for a ring.. Why the Dynamic Duo isn't out the FO door is beyond me.. they haven't shown anything in drafts or traded or even free agent signings some chimp with a dartboard couldn't produce...
  2. If you aren't measuring their benefits to the team.. like leadership, energy,.. etc... all you are measuring is numbers.. and people add to groups a lot more than their numeric production... in all walks of life.. knowledge is more valuable than most would know.. Simmons experience that he is sharing is invaluable.. playing with him has improved players for the future.. and they are undervaluing La Tortuga; the innings he has filled on the mound and in the field ... when nobody else was available... His defense is more than plausible at 1st and 3rd... how do you measure him saving arms in the pen and playing other so out of position they are lost at the position..
  3. All I have to say is Hahahahahahahahahaha.. Fire the Dynamic Duo... Why: lets look at the unmentionables: The Bullpen... not only does the team need 5 starters.. it needs at just as much help in the bullpen... and While some like to pencil prospects in as the future.. i expect that most of them will fail..Why.. because if you look at reality most prospects fail... i don't expect Larnach ( Lurch) to make it.. he is DH material at best.. and the notion of looking at 2023 and going crazy and thinking they'll be Stocked with Players.. barring any extension.. they have no Buxton in CF.. They will Have to Hope Sayno is worth the option they have, Rogers is a free agent, and so is Duffey.. at the end of next year... so Who will be SS? Lewis? can he hit?... Who is in CF? will Kepler be traded or hit like it is 2019?.. Donald Duck will be DH by then if not traded.. Whose 3b?... Where are all the prospects they should be training right now?.. why are they playing out the season with Simmons? ( great glove..and hands... love watching the guy.. cut him a check.. get a prospect up here..).. Yes the Twins are in full rebuild and if history is our guide.. those of us still alive can discuss this after the rebuild in 2031... when the Twins will be on the way to their 3rd World series. championship... or Po'lad could open the valve on the cash cow of Target field and it could happen quicker... say 5 years instead of 10... but once again.. history as our guide... check out 2012-2021..
  4. 5 year no aces... they are a busted pair... and Molitor isn't being given credit for taking the under talented team provided to the post season and on the run to the post season with zero midseason help from the Dynamic Duo... fired they should be... after 5 years the have produced this season.. this was expressed in the article " By firing Paul Molitor, the Twins got rid of a problem they didn’t have From this day forward, the garbage scow commonly known as the Minnesota Twins belongs to Derek Falvey and Thad Levine. " https://www.minnpost.com/sports/2018/10/by-firing-paul-molitor-the-twins-got-rid-of-a-problem-they-didnt-have/
  5. Not all sliders are considered equal... the same as all fastballs are not considered equal... as a Major league ( any) pitcher you find out what works and use it.. as a team.. you job isn't to try to stick square pegs in round holes... and a little secret... The Rays Arms vary so much in what they throw.. its not like all their pitchers are slider heavy... and the final thought.. learn how to pitch.. and that starts with control... The throw it somewhere at the box mentality has ruined more pitchers than i can count... please teach them pitching not throwing... and if you don't know how to do that... get a different job..
  6. Funny: what took them so Long.. I predicted this to be a down season.. figured they Might win 81. Why should anyone buy into the Hype. Look at the Line up. Much of the core was built by Mr. Bill Smith.. or Mr. Ryan and all they did was spend some of the Po'lad money to flesh it out. Show me their success at the one thing they were brought into do: PITCHING.. And i have a question: Could it be the Twins implemented the no sticky rule the MLB was going to enforce before season? is it possible that this is the cause for loss of velocity and effectiveness?
  7. Its pointless to dump all the players and leave the Dynamic Duo in power.. because it is them and their analytic skills or lack there of that built this team.. the reality is there is more to player identification than Numbers.. and much more to team building than numbers.. and they have failed.. and this mess is proof undeniable..
