    SanoMustGo got a reaction from Nate Palmer in Game Recap: Twins 3, Orioles 2   
    I think it might be time to start sharing DH duties.  Cruz doesn't look good at the plate,  and his power numbers are down.  He is not part of the Twins future, so let's give others more DH at bats.

    I will say that Garver has appeared to make the necessary adjustments.  Perhaps next season they move him to 1st, and let the young guys catch.

    SanoMustGo got a reaction from Dman in Week in Review: Not Good Enough   
    There was never a real window for this team, other than the 307 home run season of 2019.  That will cover whatever weaknesses the team had.  Last year, it was pitching that led the team to a 36-24 record.  Twins dropped from 2nd to 18th in runs scored last year, but the pitching was so good it covered the offensive regression. So far this season, the Twins are 10th in runs scored, but we have seen all their failures in key situations.  Add in a serious lack of pitching, defense, and the intangibles winning teams display, and we have what we have.  We have seen good things from Kiriloff, Larrnach, and moments of promise from some of the other young guys.  But, this team has no chance if Donaldson, Sano, Cruz, & Buxton don't produce.  Taken as a group, they, for many reasons, have not.

    SanoMustGo got a reaction from stringer bell in What is the biggest problem with this Twins team?   
    The Twins biggest problem is this team is poorly constructed.  2019 was lightning in a bottle.  It was never going to happen again.  307 HR's fooled me into believing this was the start of a 3-4 year championship window.  Last year, pitching saved their butt's.  If they had to play a full, balanced schedule, I think the issues we see this year would have been more apparent last year as well.   I do not believe this team has ANY of the intangibles that you see in a championship team.   As far as individual players, Sano...he has been around long enough to know what he is.   If I was a real contender, I wouldn't go within a mile of him.  Donaldson..he is halfway between 35-36.  I think we are seeing the beginning of the end of his career.  Same with Cruz.   Bux...ohh what a shame he cannot stay healthy.  If you were the owner/GM, would you invest 150+ million on someone so physically fragile?  Kepler, Polanco & Simmons are decent complimentary pieces, but won't carry you to a championship if the players above don't produce.  I am really torn regarding Berrios, especially considering how bad this organization has been at developing starting pitching.   If they can't get him signed soon, then trade him in the off season, or if a contender is willing to pay enough, trade him near the deadline.  I could go on.   Unless they(MLB) decides to juice the baseball again like it was in 2019, they need to rebuild, or at least a serious retool, cause' this team is not a legit contender as constructed, even when healthy.
