  1. He pinch hit last night and grounded out to second to end the game. He did not look healthy running down to 1st base. I've always admired his hustle, but to me he looks like he's hurt.
  2. How does someone pad their stats in baseball? You either hit/field or you don't. Do you think he's just trying harder now.???? He could've hit like this all year, but just chose not to???? Silly.
  3. Huh? Who has the front office traded away that you has the pedigree of those 3? Steer is struggling. Povich has had a good season but is at AA. Hajjaar has potential but he's been on the IL too and struggled since the trade. CES continues to mash minor league pitching but doesn't really have a defensive position. He seems redundant with the Twins. Not defending the front office (I guess i am) but it seems they traded the prospects they should have while hanging on the Lewis, SWR, Julien, etc.....
  4. Whoa.....let's pump the brakes a bit on Steer......he's hitting .218 with a .328 OBP....we have no idea if he's a flash in the pan or a legit major leaguer. 90% of the posters on here were fired up when they acquired Mahle. Hindsight is always 20/20.
  5. Agreed....Pagan needs to go. But Rogers has hit more than a "rough" patch.....I think he has one save (last night) since joining the Brewers....they are rarely using him in save situations. His second half struggles have become the norm. Would I like to have him on this team? Heck yeah, but pitching is not our problem right now....the lineup is.
  6. Just goes to show what learning to hit with a wooden bat when you're are young can do for you.... Speaking from experience, it is a HUGE change going from aluminum to wood.
  7. Just something to think about......
  8. I have a sneaky suspicion that Carlos is going to get very hot down the stretch......and we will be begging him to stay. Superstar players tend to step-up when they smell the playoffs/primetime and I believe he is a superstar.
  9. First it was tapeworm and now it's a bad haircut????? At least get your lies consistent.....SMH
  10. 65 pitches!!!! 65 5 innings....little to no hard contact. What does it take for guy to stay in the game? Would Rocco pull Bundy if he had a perfect game going if the linuep was turning over for the third time? It's like Rocco panics after 5 when the Twins have the lead. "If Jax is perfect....if Duran is perfect....if Lopez is perfect, WE WIN!!!" Guess what? That's not always going to happen. He has absolutely no feel for the game or when a pitcher has it on a particular night. This one is all on Rocco.
  11. Is the standard for overturning a call "clear and convincing evidence?" If so, doesn't the fact that there's been sooooo much debate about this call mean it wasn't clear and convincing? The call on the field was out.....what clear and convincing evidence was there to make an overturn? I'm confused. As to the throw from Beckham? I don't think you can complain for a guy playing LF for (I think) the 3rd time.....just a sucky way to lose a game.
  12. Huh? Is it callous to send Moran down? Or how about Sanchez after he won a game or us last week? Are you seriously implying that the Twins should hang on to Duffey in the middle of a pennant race because he's been around for 11 years? Ugh....that's the kind of thinking that needs to go. They're paying him 3.8 million dollars this year....and he's been terrible......and it's not going to suddenly get better. I wish my employer was that callous. I guess I don't know what to say....no one has made a case why Duffey is on the team, other than he's a "good guy".
