  1. 129 AB .. 58 SO .. .163 BA .. Average fielder and below average speed on the base paths.. I swear to god, if Sano shortened his swing and tried to hit line drives he would end up hitting 40 balls over the fence by accident and strike out significant less ..
  2. I don't think those would be the guys. More like: Happ, Shoemaker, Colome, Sano, Kepler By the way, not trying to be mean but lose the RED Bars on the front page. They look hideouts. Total distraction JMHO
  3. Waddell should NOT be sent back to the Saints ... He should be outright released!
  4. It's all about service time with Kirilloff. I predict that once we can hold his rights for an extra year he will be up which supposedly is sometime around the end of April. I would think they would wait until he has a couple weeks under his belt at triple A so maybe towards the end of May? I would cut or trade Cave at that point so that he can play full time.
  5. i've got 4 words. Kirilloff, Larnach, Duran, Balazovic Give it until May and if they can't get out of their slump call all 4 up. This team needs new blood and they are the future. Trade Sano, cut Shoemaker and Cave, and demote Dobnak so he can get back on track. Poor kid's mind must have been blown with that new contract .. At least that would get me Excited about watching the play again,
  6. I think the Twins needed these days off to get their heads screwed back on straight ..
  7. Biggest sign we're back to the 2019 Can't score when the bases are loaded Shaping up to be a good year!
  8. Cave is a clog in the rookie call up wheel. Hope the Twins unclog that wheel and send Cave down the river soon. I am not a fan of his ..
  9. Really happy for a fine young man and the Twins made a great deal. But I'm really curious about the escalators. Hopefully there is a way for him to make a fair salary if he develops into something solid ,,
  10. The way I see it Rooker's spring bat and the lack of Krilloff's gives the Twins what they want. A good excuse to leave Krilloff at triple A the first month and gain an extra year of service. I bet management is thrilled! And Rooker appears to be the real deal so if I was Jake Cave I'd me looking for a new domicile ..
  11. Smeltzer made me / makes me cringe every time he goes to the mound. He has a great story but is a flash in the pan. Got a few good meals out of him when he first came up and then nothing. Worse than nothing. I see no way he is in the Twins future but I seriously doubt we could get much of anything in a trade. Pitchers like Smeltzer are a dime a dozen in the minors .. Smeltzer has NO dominate pitches. He picks at the plate when he doesn't hit his exact spoke they tag him. He's basically just a finiss pitcher Time to just release him and let him try to find a home somewhere else.
  12. Could we just get one year of a healthy Buxton so he can realize his full potential ...
  13. If Krilloff doesn't make the mental mistakes Eddie makes he will do just fine as Eddie's replacement ..
  14. A lot of risk comes with signing Buxton to a long term contract due to his injury history. I'm not saying, don't do it, but the safest move would be to trade him for a bundle ..
