    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.

    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.

    How about a real first baseman who knows the position and a catcher who can throw a guy out once in a while? 
    Or a pitcher who can keep the runners close?
    Holes. We have holes.

    Thanks for reading. I think how the FO plays the deadline will be a reflection of how serious they are about making an October run. If they acquire a playoff caliber SP and two strong bullpen additions, they have a much better shot at winning and October series imo. I want them to be more aggressive than they have at the deadline previously.

    I'm glad the bullpen is the top point. The way playoff baseball is now played, dominant bullpen depth is more important than top tier starting pitching. The Twins fanbase knows playoff success via Viola/Blyleven, Jack Morris, and Johan Santana. But right now a starting pitcher's job in the playoffs is to merely get through the order twice, unless it's a blowout.

    The Braves don't hoard relievers in July every year coincidentally.

    Dont need another 1B.  Bullpen is priority with Rocco's 4 inning starter proclivity

    I rather we just trade for about 4 effective bullpen arms.  We don't need a 1B or a Catcher.  We need Pitching with a big ol PERIOD.

    I felt like the Urshela baserunning blunder was the point at which the Twins remembered who they were playing.

    Full on fetal position after the gallo homer to start the 5th against bundy and the subsequent missed strike 3/homer allowed by cotton. One single baserunner after that

    KFEY93 reacted to bighat in Yankees 10, Twins 4: Duffey Clobbered Again as Twins Drop Game One   
    It's also worth questioning why Tyler Duffey was the choice to pitch late in a one run game.
    This is because this was one of Rocco's "forfeit games" where he refuses to use any of his best players because he's saving them for later in the series. Basically the Twins weren't playing to win last night - they were playing for a win on Wednesday/Thursday.
    The problem with this strategy is that all too often, the rest of the series goes sideways and the best guys never have a chance to pitch in a meaningful game. The Twins may very well lose the next two games by double-digits, and therefore the best chance they had to win was during that 1-run contest last night*.
    As a fan, I want my guys to play to win TODAY - and worry about tomorrow when we get there. Rocco's approach to the MLB season has always been way too far sighted for my taste.
    *In fairness, a team should have a bullpen full of major leaguers that can get batters out, regardless of how good the team they are facing is. The Twins have some serious holes in the 'pen and need to make changes.

    Also, Rocco should be criticized for pitching Duffey there. That game was still winnable.

    They had a golden opportunity to build some cushion when they had two weeks of Detroit and KC. But they dropped the ball. If Cleveland or the white Sox ever get it together, they’ll surpass us. You can’t absorb this much time lost.

    Meanwhile, the White Sox shut out the Dodgers.
    Look, this Twins team is better than I expected. I like 'em. But there will be no broad-based excitement for this team through the summer if they can't at least win a few games from the top dogs in baseball. It's okay to lose a good share of games to the league titans, but it's not okay to lose them all, especially not while rolling over like well-heeled puppies in the process.
    Nothing about these losses is surprising, which is really the most sad thing about them, series after series after series.
    If you want fans in the stands, boys, you better do more to earn an audience.

    Rocco got ejected due to his own frustration of keeping all his relievers in too long. It was like he thought the game was over in the fifth inning. Also, DFA Duffey.
