  1. Saturdays game shows why we do need to resign Big Mike for 2022. He throws this kind of game again and again. Perhaps this years injury will persuade him to come into camp next year in better shape. Perhaps being in better shape will make him less prone to injury. I can picture him consistantly pitching this kind of game for several years to come.
  2. 2 games does not a season make. I hope that next year I am writing: 1 season does not a career make.
  3. What does this mean? Fort Myers Mighty Mussels placed SS Keoni Cavaco on the temporarily inactive list
  4. This is all very interesting, however, it completely ignores the fact that most of these pitchers did not want to relocate to Minnesota. Their reasons may or may not have been valid, but it is my understanding that Minnesota wasn't even on the radar as a desirable place to play. Perhaps if the Twins had a better defense. I had hopes that Donaldson-Simmons on the left side would tighten up our defense, but alas, it was not to be so. Since the top pitchers would not move here, even if we matched their top-dollar offers, what strategy do we have left?
  5. and in his last outting he thru lots of ground balls. Thats what I wanted to see.
  6. What has happened in Cavaco's life? Was he emotionally ready for this huge change in living? Was he physically ready? Particularly after the lockdowns? How's his love life? Do the Twins have the people to help young players adapt and develop? Do the Twins have the people to help him grow into the player he might be? Baseball is a results oriented game. Perhaps Cavaco will never be ready to make the big leagues, but I want to know if the Twins are doing the right things to help him succeed.
  7. Your thoughts about Albers mirror mine. However, I am a bit more hopeful. I believe he can be a competent #5 starter for the next couple years, allowing us to focus on signing premier pitchers during the off-season.
  8. I always have to remind myself, that I don't know what is really happening with these guys. We only see the results of their day to day efforts. It is easy to mistake a lucky outting for a good outing & an unlucky outting for a bad outting.
  9. I am looking forward to watching this game. I fear, that no matter how he throws, the Twins will have him in the rotation next year and by the end of the year he will no longer be in the rotation. How many pitchers can you name that throw at this low velocity and find a permanent spot in a good rotation? I hope I am wrong.
  10. Reusse has been a negative writer from the beginning. Even back to his Pioneer Press days. When he is talking negative he is at his best (or worst) depending on your viewpoint.
  11. Don't be so quick to jettison Albers. He could be the Twins version of Jamie Moyers. Lets see what he does for the rest of the year.
  12. Closisng with Colome is as mistifying as leading off Kepler or batting Rooker 2nd. If Arraez is playing, he should be leading off. His OBP alone screams that.
  13. The current situation is terrible, but it does make for some interesting games.
