  1. I remember Tom Kelly being asked what can be done to decrease hit batters. His answer was to eliminate the use of all the padding that hitters wear now. He explained that batters stay in the box longer and lean over the plate more because they are not afraid to be hit. I have no idea if that would work, but at a minimum it would open up the inner half of the plate. I will yield to TK as knowing more about baseball than pretty much all of us.
  2. We need to hold our breath on Canterino after he was put on the IL for elbow soreness yesterday.
  3. Watched the game as long as I could, then chose to go for a walk with the Mrs. It was a wise choice.
  4. Celestino seems to be doing well. I wonder how long it will be before he moves to St Paul. I think the Twins need to start putting the Buxton insurance policy closer to home.
  5. If Garlick's groin issue persists I can see him on the IL when Buxton returns. Things like that seem to magically happen every year.
  6. Looking at the bullpen usage for the last couple days and I wonder who the heck will pitch today when the starter is pulled after five innings. Farrell? Stashak? gulp Colome? Maybe Tortuga?
  7. The problem is that the regression has been over multiple seasons. Sano, Kepler, Polanco, Cave?, Garver?. Major changes will have to be made to turn this boat around.
  8. Seems to me that it is time for Rocco to change his management style. Every good leader is adept at changing styles to fit the situation. Rocco's hands off, let's not get hurt. make sure you are rested approach does not seem to be working. This team matches their manager in obvious internal fire.
  9. My memory is not what I would like it to be, but didn't Duffey go through a similar slow start in recent past spring trainings? I just feel like this is deja vu all over again.
  10. My thought on Odo is that he probably wanted more money/term than the Twins were willing to pay. With that, the Twins decided to go another route. The market dried up for ODO but the Twins were no longer looking his way, so he had to settle for the Houston offer.
  11. I would really like to see Dozier return to the Twins in some kind of on-field coaching/managing role.
