  1. you yep.. I don't think Donaldson's heart ir desire is in question hee. there is plenty of time for his stats to even out. What gets to me is this..why are 95% of these so called experts on here insisting that this joke of a team isn't Derek Falveys fault? If you run a business into the ground you can't blame anyone else. If you cheat on your wife you can't blame the mailman. This is ultimately the fo's scrw up. don't bore me with ... excuses. Baldelli is their guy and all these playesr are Their players!
  2. i am sure you will get warning points for this blog but I am right here to tell you I am 100% in agreement with you. Have you ever met someone and things just weren't right? You couldn't really explain why you just didn't like em.. couldn't trust em. That to me are the Falvines. Am i the only one that sees the crap that went on in 2018? One example, How are you at Spring Training and it takes you until June 1st to see how out of shape Sano was? (boneheaded) Fast forward to now. This team needs a not so swift kick in their overpaid asses. I am afraid Baldelli is not qualified to do t. Derek Falvey is giddy because now he can gut the team and see his name in the media as our savior once again
  3. the FO is never the topic when it is The Topic! Every time i hear Jim Pohlad say these words.. "they have no payroll budget limitations"
  4. wow..all i have to say is....he probably isn't as Great as we all thought in 2019, and to some extent 2020, but he isn't as bad as we all probably think now. What happened in 2018 and so far in 2021 is absolutely the dynamic duo's fault. (and especially the boy wonder that calls the shots)
  5. In find it unbelievable that the best front in the history of Major League Baseball can't field a team that can't catch the ball, hit with runners in scoring position, ir hold a 2 run lead in extra innings. I personally really miss Eddie Rosario, Marwin Gonzalez, and Ehire Adrianza.
  6. a 38 year old man had to pitch a one hitter against Pittsburgh to keep this from a 1-14 crapper.
  7. that was a great article...you get an A for sugar coating
  8. Without saying I told you so(i already have). Did any of us really believe that dumping Rosario, Gonzalez, and Adrianza was a smart move? They could have added Simmons and let someone like Cave ride off into the sunset. For all of you that cried about Gonzalez and Rosario shame on you. This team is crap defensively. Unfortunately every ball won't get hit to Buxton or Donaldson. I never thought Simmons was that great despite what the analytics spreadsheets say. He showed up late 3 weeks and then gave everyone Co-vid 19. he has never been on a playoff team in his MLB life, and i dont think he has ever hit .250. Now without Gonzalez, there is no back up first baseman, no decent third baseman if JD needs a day, and there is a massive hole in left field both at the plate and with the glove. Shame on all you who wanted to let Rosario go! The problem is not with the rotation, bullpen, or the manager (he is a figurehead anyway). The problem is with the defense, and the depth. Falvine took a gamble with our team and Crapped Out. Way to go Derek and Thad. Its the little things that matter and they need to tear themselves away from the computers and really watch a baseball game. They should keep their Clown faces off the television win or lose. Jim Pohlad said they had no budget, so now its on the superstar front office to take this in their pale butts.
  9. i have just watched a game from 2019...it doesn't matter which one it was...but it was in August against the White Sox. In the first inning Marwin Gonzalez made 3 soectacular plays that will never EVER show up in the box scores from the 1b position. Later I saw Eddie Rosario make an outstanding throw to nail a runner trying to go first to third. I wonder if this crap team we are watching now could use a little Rosario/Gonzalez/Adrianza now. But Dammit that Derek Falvey us a genius isn't he?
  10. First of all none of these guys have dazzled anybody who knows anything about major league baseball. AND second, the fact that they are even on the active roster spells doom for this entire season.
  11. You make it sound like he calls any shots or something....He does not. He doesn't need a bench coach, and all the moves ARE pre-determined by Falvey and Levine. Thats why they need 2,ooo office workers...so they can micro manage every on field decision. Whatever happens is on them not Baldelli. They will have their mugs on tv to take the credits and make Baldelli take all the blames.
  12. Well I can't say much since my free speech rights are basically taken away on this site, but I will say some key points with tact. I drove to Anaheim from Phoenix to see the entire series. What the hell was Thorpe doing starting any of those games? That's on Falvine not Baldelli. We all know who calls the shots. Ok, what the hell is Dobnak doing on the roster if he isn't going to make those spot starts. Their defense was Crap last friday night....Thorpe against Trout, Rendon, Pujols, Upton, Fletcher, and (do they have any left handed hitters at all?) They weren't ready to play and they embarassred us all. The next two games got postponed because of what? The 10.5 million dollar defensive savior tested positive for Co-Vid 4,5,6, or ten players got infected subsequently. Everyone or a vast majority lambasted me for criticizing him for being three weeks late for work...hmmmm never heard an explanation for that...now he wont take the vaccine....hmmm okay then. There's enough blame to go around to be sure....I was against letting Rosario go, I was against letting Adrianza go, and I have always loved Marwin Gonzalez. Those dudes played defense and were tough outs...Everybody wanted to change everything. I know Gonzalez would have taken a pay cut to stay. Are we really better off? I doubt it. The bullpen will be fine, The rotation will be okay. The lineup has a glaring hole out in left field. As injury prone as this team is we may have a repeat of 2018....or even 2016. If that happens I wonder how many geniuses will be singing the praises of the Falvey administration then? We should be worried about winning two in a row, not beating the Yankees in the playoffs. What a joke.
  13. I see that point...why not say so at 8am instead of making everybody show up park, and sit there in the rain until you make up your minds.
  14. I know my opinion may sound like an odd thing for me to say but...I don't think Baldelli is afraid to use any of them for 6 outs. It seems like every year a lot of fans underrate the Twins b.p and at the end you look and they have a top 5-10 crew out there. That guy Robles is a beast, and Colomé is the real deal too. With the emergence of Stashak, Alcala, and Dobnak as long relief...this years pen maybe the best we've had in quite awhile. I wanted them to keep May and Wisler but this is one area where I think they did a great job of reloading it. It was a nice under the radar thing...I just hope the main guys can stay healthy. I don't feel that Waddell us a scrub either.
  15. With the state of Baltimore and Detroit....who really cares? Badoo was prolly never gonna beat out the Fabulous Jake Cave, the multi talented Kyle Garlick, or ever challenge top MLB prospects such as Kiriloff, Rooker, Celestino, or even Broxton. Plus we have ultimate swiss army knife J.T. Riddle waiting in the wings. To be a top front office executive, you can't be afraid to make difficult decisions. I'm not sure if I can recall Wells ever being a threat to make the 40 man either. Badoo is a flash in the pan...we won't hear about him after May 1st. Do not worry fellow Twins Fan, D.F and T.L have got every base covered.
  16. i know right? I haven't seen every at bat, but the ones i have seen he seems more disciplined and less susceptible to the wicked slider from the right handers. I too think he will snap out of it. I also heard an in game interview from the dugout with Sano Probus, and Gladden during Spring Training. Sano talked about working with Cruz and Valeria(is that right?) on driving those pitches to the opposite field and making them pay for that. It had become comical to watch him wave endlessly at 2 strike breaking balls. GO TWINS!
  17. Far be it from me to second guess the best FO in history....and I so much hate saying i told you so...but...I would like to really know exactly what WAS the plan in left field. We know it wasn't Badoo. Was it Cave? Rooker? Kiriloff? the C.Y.A FO has somehow failed to address that at all. Maybe it was Garlick all along. Eddie would sure look good out there about now wouldn't he?
  18. The depth is impressive. Thank you Tom...I follow your you tube posts and they are always good as well
  19. This year? I must have missed it....Throw him out there anyway. If that has to happen we will already be in big trouble
  20. Also....what is the finite number the Pohlad's have identified as the payroll budget ceiling? I have no doubt there is one, but I doubt any of us knows what it is. Next time I am over there for dinner I will ask them.
