  1. He’s just asking to see how you calculated Baldelli’s -43 WAR. It can’t be that complicated.
  2. If you want to win a World Series, you keep Correa no matter what the price is. It’s not often that a mid-market team like the Twins has the opportunity to sign a player of Correa’s caliber who is also a former World Champion.
  3. Concur with Mike, the Twins shouldn’t weaken their team when they have a chance to go for it in the playoffs. They should be buyers, not sellers.
  4. But does it though? I think it falls on the coaching staff as a whole, not just the manager. Maybe I’m wrong, IDK.
  5. The key words here are “and his staff.” And “his staff” is a lot of coaches. If you want to blame the coaching staff as a whole, I can see where you’re coming from, even though I disagree. But you can’t pin all of that on the manager. Baldelli was also a very fundamentally sound player when he played the game. I don’t believe the bad fundamentals are coming from him. The situational hitting issues and the run manufacturing issues do not fall on the manager, they fall on the hitting coach, Edgar Varela. Baldelli’s team did not struggle with either of those two things in 2019 when the hitting coach was James Rowson. I don’t believe the offense is a Baldelli problem.
  6. I think we can trust Jax with a 2.80 ERA over 25 appearances. Outside of Jax, Thielbar, and Duran, the Twins need 1-2 more relievers at the deadline.
  7. I agree with you, I wouldn’t trust Pagan in the 8th Inning of a 1-run game. I would’ve used Thielbar in the 8th and then Duran in the 9th.
  8. I mean if he were to run the 102MPH heater out in the 8th, he would still need someone to pitch the 9th. Because Pagan blew the lead, there was no Bottom of the 9th. Now maybe Duran could pitch both the 8th and the 9th, but he’s only pitched multiple innings 7 times in 26 appearances this year. I don’t think it’s fair to criticize Baldelli for not counting on Duran to pitch two innings. Also you do not know that Baldelli is a detriment to the Twins. Managers are not as big of a part of the equation in the modern game as you might think. There are many other coaches and personnel that all play a part. If you want to criticize him for the bullpen meltdowns, please consider the fact that he only has 2-3 reliable bullpen arms to work with. That’s not his fault.
