  1. Good thing Vikings training camp starts in two weeks and we will have football in a month or so. I stopped watching these games after the home Cleveland series they blew, have just been checking scores since and its been a wise decision. This team is who we thought they were before the season started. An offense that can be top 10 if it wants to be, meh starting pitching and GARBAGE bullpen. The whole team over achieved at the same time for a month or so (much like 2015) and has revealed its true self along the way up to this point. Its not fun to watch, so I wont. Hopefully we dont make the play offs as it would hopefully sound the death knell of Rocco and maybe wake up the front office that we need pitching in droves if they actually want to compete. And by compete I mean sniff a WS, not win the worst division in baseball and maybe snag one play off win. That's not competitive, that's just being a baseball team.
  2. Meh, what has he done besides gotten a little out of lower level pitches in 2019? Our pitching staff, starters and BP have been far from stellar in his tenure. That may be because of lack of talent but, along with him and Rocco, im meh. Both can be gone as far as Im concerned.
  3. Lol this team hasn't won a playoff GAME in almost 20 years. And you are talking about getting hot for the ALCS? You have to get there first. And with the state of our BP (Lord knows where it will be by the end of the season) and our starters, winning A play off series, let alone the ALCS is a pipe dream. To sit back and go "nah this is fine" at the trade deadline would be moronic, and thats exactly what I expect the Twins to do.
  4. That and the Polanco ignored dropped infield fly. Every player on the field looked deflated after that, and you can see Rocco saying " You gotta be ****ing kidding me". Like....you cant make up how these team finds ways to lose winnable games.
  5. He was mismanaging this roster and BP when the team was healthy.
  6. The Yankees will sweep regardless. We have 0 pitching. They are going to feast.
  7. However, its not baseless, you countered nothing I stated because you know its true. The truth can be obnoxious some times for people that choose to ignore it.
  8. He's not an every day starter and is one of 9 people in the line up when he does play. Im curious what this lineup would be doing against lefties with out him to show how sub par the rest of the team has been.
  9. This isnt as much about the game as his entire tenure here. The aberration that was 2019 is holding him up. The rest of his team here has been subpar at best.
  10. Correct. This isnt a reaction to one game. Its a reaction to his entire time here. Its the same argument I have for the homers who think Kirk Cousins is going to take the Vikings to the super bowl. They're delusional and are afraid of being great and would rather cling to .500. Much like Rocco. Its an assessment if his entire tenure. And 2019 is loooong gone.
  11. What has he done or shown besides mismanaging lineups, creating zero consistency in the roster and mismanaging pitchers mid game? The only thing holding him up is the 2019 season in which he lucked into having every player have a career year on offense with a juiced ball. I could have managed that team to 100 wins. As time goes on its showing more and more to be the aberration and 2020, 2021 are the real face of this team. And that will be the case until we have a legit ace, proven BP arms and a manager that doesn't rely on excel spread sheets to manage a game. The blind support for mediocrity is what's so bizarre about Minnesota sports fans.
  12. Each are also very unlikely to happen if history is anything to go by. And all 5 happening at the same time is astronomically unrealistic.
  13. Hope yall are ready for the downfall. It begins now. Last month and a half was a cute façade in my opinion. By this time next month the Twins will be right at or under .500 and out of first with a worn out BP that was already over achieving and injured stars on offense. Would love to be proven wrong but I think the writing is on the wall. Oh well, at least they made it to June before they became unwatchable this year. Last year it was the beginning of May and I turned off the games and only checked scores.
  14. Because he doesn't know what he's doing with the BP. I gets stated week in and week out yet people see we're being over critical. Thats now 4 games I can count this season that were lost on Rocco not knowing when to keep a starter in or yanking a BP arm when things are clearly falling apart. I get it, our record is still good. But these types of losses add up, and they really matter if we some how make it to a play off game this season.
  15. Lets win a play off game, let alone a series before we throw extensions around. You dont get to hang banners for regular season Ws.
  16. Agreed on all accounts. Sadly I see reason number 5 continuing to cost us some close games here and there. Lets hope the division lead doesn't come down to a game or two at the end of the year because I already have at least 3 losses on the books because of Rocco and his management of the BP/Pulling-Keeping Starters.
  17. Sending down Lewis and keeping Miranda up because he "can play first base" is asinine imo. Any MLB bench player should be able to play left field at a passable level, Lewis can do that. I see zero good reasons to sending him back down. Its moves like this, on top of not being able to manage the leash on pen arms properly that drive me nuts with this team, managing and all around operation. Its almost parody at this point. Think of the dumbest way they can manage players and games, and they will probably do it.
  18. Yeah okay Nick, you like Rocco, we get it. Its okay if others don't. This screams brainwashed homer calling people "Doomers" for not liking everything about the current team. If I wanted that I would sit on the cult site that is the Twins subreddit.
