    AK83 got a reaction from Wallner in How to Define the Minnesota Twins 2022 Season   
    Even if Rocco had been mentioned, it's always one of two lame excuses--either it's not his fault because managers have no real impact on the game or it was just bad luck, too many injuries, etc. If he has no real impact on the game, why even have a manager at all?

    Or how about the team's insistence on playing Sano for half of the year when the dude could barely hit over .100?

    Obviously injuries were the worst culprit, but unforced errors around pitching decisions were a major contributor as well. Knowingly sticking Pagan in high leverage situations when he'd demonstrated no ability to perform is on the managerial staff. Not getting an extra inning or two from an effective starter also put undue pressure on the bullpen. These decisions probably cost us 8+ wins or more. So yes, injuries were terrible, but managerial decisions were the preventable death blow.
    I'm also not a fan of scheduled days off (except maybe in Buxton's case). Your best players should be on the field until they decide they need a break. Probably an unpopular opinion.
