    Let Correa do what he is being paid to do (so very well).  This kid will be back in the bigs very soon.

    I’d love to think that maybe part of this decision is because they are confident in working out a long-term deal with Correa.
    Yeah, I dream big.

    Not to mention saving the bullpen an extra inning of work.

    Houston is playing very well. At the top of their game they are superior to the Twins. The thing is that no one goes through an entire season on the top of their game. Even at the top of their game, the Twins have some gaps. They definitely don't have much team speed they are strikeout prone. They're reliant on homers to fuel their offense. This would seem to be a formula where there are slumps and the past week has shown an offense that just doesn't measure up. 
    Over the course of a long season, the offense will have peaks and valleys. Guys like Arraez who make contact and work counts tend to have fewer slumps and dry spells. Guys like Buxton are a bit of the opposite. 
    I am worried about the rotation and the back end of the bullpen still needs at least one reinforcement. I do think the Twins are better than they showed against Houston and they will play better ball. I'm not sure they have enough talent to make up for their shortcomings.

    Obviously disappointed in losing all 3 games. I would have been OK with some sort of split. But 3 losses against a very good team even at home, doesn't spell doom and gloom going forward. It's baseball. Stuff happens. We weren't supposed to win in Tampa, remember?
    I didn't get to watch today, still, a few personal thoughts:
    1] Ryan wasn't as sharp in the opener as he has been. Personally, while it was atrocious, I felt he got squeezed a lot by the ump. Disappointed in Winder today, but I have faith in him and a rebound. Bad games happen even for seasoned pitchers. You're going to, obviously, have a few bumps in the road here and there with rookie/young pitchers. 
    2] More disappointed in Archer Wednesday night. He just seemed tight or pressing and seemed to overthrow or miss constantly. I don't know if it was the weather or just a very bad day. I've been surprised and encouraged before that game and how the Twins have been handling him. But he's got to rebound next start in a big way.
    3]I know we're playing a little short and banged up at the moment, but the offense was starting to click. And I know the Astros are a quality team with some good arms, but the offense has suddenly disappeared the past 6 games. Come on guys!
    4] Arraez could fall out of bed every day and hit .300. He's an important part of this team and I'm glad he's still with us..
    5] Gordon's draft status will probably always mark him as some sort of "disappointment" no matter his career going forward. But he's starting to hit. His speed is a valuable asset. He can cover 6 positions at least "comfortably" defensively. That catch in CF today was OUTSTANDING and I just marvel at how quickly he has adapted to the OF, on the fly, pun intended, since being thrown out there in 2021.
    6] In baseball, there is always tomorrow and the next series. Time to move on, get back in the saddle, and get back in the WIN column starting tomorrow. 
    LET'S GO TWINS!

    Well the graduate level course is over.  We can go back to teams on or below our own level.

    VivaBomboRivera! reacted to PopRiveter in Miguel Sano: Boom, Bust, or Both?   
    It's a heartbreaker. To me, he still looks like Frank Thomas in a uniform. He still looks like the guy I'd imagined he one day be back when he was a young prospect. I can still see all that potential and he turns just 29 tomorrow. He should be mid-prime.
    He's only produced like a star player in small bursts and when he's bad, he's awful. It really does feel like it is time to stop hoping and move on. This year was make-or-break.
    However it goes from here, there will be a bad aftertaste in my mouth. I wanted better for him.

    Rosenthal's recent article in the Athletic said it's the lowest in 2022 as it has been since 2018. It's right around 1.1 percent. Last year it was slightly higher, 1.3 percent.  It's up since the 1980's though.

    It sure is fun watching a winning team. This pitching staff has been such a pleasant surprise.
    Feels like Polanco deserves some special love for turning it on this week after a slow start. He slashed ,360/.414/,520 on the week. 
    A really good development for this offense,

    Let's be clear: this is not a phantom injury. His knee is hurt. He was limping around all week. Hopefully the time off gets him straightened out at the plate, although I continue to believe it was only a matter of time anyway. The dude's xwOBA is .344!

    36 runs scored in 6 games. At least 5 runs scored in 5 of the 6.
    That'll work.

    Impressive loss for Bundy. Instead of showing embarrassment, he took his lumps, then kept working on his game. In the end, working against live batters, Bundy got sharp and stayed there, finishing up looking as dominant as he did in his previous start. He also saved the pen from spending at least two more pitchers. 
    Kudos, Mr. Bundy. Impressive loss.
