  1. This was during the ninth inning with the game on the line, mind you, and Gomez just started cussing out bugs and taking an enraged hack at them.
  2. The thing is if 2 of them pan out this pitching staff is still terrible.
  3. Colome is the only one out of the group that should be surprising. The others just are not good pitchers. Even Colome was due to some regression. Look at the price tags. I have a difficult time believing the front office thought much of these guys either considering what they signed for.
  4. Dobnak an all-star? Believing in Ober? Stay tuned next week for What's not to like about Grffin Jax?
  5. The Twins aren't cursed unless you mean they're cursed with a front office that jettisons effective pitchers and scours the scrapheap to not only fill out their AAA roster but their major league roster as well.
  6. If you're going to insist on having a 13-14 man pitching staff you should probably attempt to have some quality arms out there.
  7. Too many mediocre to awful pitchers in this league. I want to watch great pitching matchups but they just don't happen anymore. Even if by some miracle degrom squares off against Kershaw what's the point? They'll both be out by the sixth and the game will be decided by garbage relievers. The relievers... WHY ARE WE USING 9 MAN BULLPENS? How terrible are managers and GMs that it has come to this? I'm not going to bother to learn anything about these guys when they'll just be cycled through for someone else after they've given the team an inning. Cookie cutter players. We got rid of the cookie cutter stadiums because they were awful. Now 90 percent of the players are the same. They hit. 240 with 30 home runs and 170 k. Great product. Or they throw 97 but can't last more than 80 pitches. Sweet.. 7 inning dh, random runner on 2nd, keep adding playoff teams, challenges, can't block the plate. I still get angry when they don't pitch for an ibb I want BASEBALL not a stat driven simulation.
  8. Also to answer the original question, I have zero faith. i assume they won't completely whiff on every single FA they sign again but they have put themselves in such a huge whole that it won't matter.
  9. The Dodgers thought so highly of Maeda that they consistently traded for someone better mid-season relegating him to the bullpen come postseason... but he's our "ace" and it's not even close.
  10. They all just try to imitate each other. For every star veteran that fell off the face of the earth in their prime I will show you 100 prospects that never made it. Instead of trading berrios why not improve the pitching staff instead of continually subtracting from it?
  11. Well, can you see why this might be frustrating for someone who only wants their team to win to see said team take three steps back for every step forward year after year after year? They aren't losing money. The only thing preventing the Pohlads from building a winning team is themselves. Enjoyed the back and forth!
  12. Kimbrel for Madrigal This is a legitimate trade. I like this from both perspectives.
  13. There's no rule preventing the Twins from paying people. And disappointment quickly converts to apathy.
  14. Yes, and they've already weeded out the possibility of being a bust by having a long career of success. Acquiring prospects does nothing for me. They'll either be awful and we'll keep them too long or they'll be good and we'll trade them for more prospects. At no point will this formula amount to winning unless you keep your good players.
  15. This trade only makes me hate baseball more. Martin will be ok but Woods Richardson has been awful. Berrios is as certain a thing as there is.
  16. Pretty excited for a guy that averages 4 innings per start with a 5.76 ERA in AA. Falvine is nothing, if not consistent.
  17. It's not a fluke that this pitching staff can't get anyone out.
  18. Trade deadline day is easily my least favorite day of the year. It's always crappy teams giving away their stars to the same 5 or 6 teams (and "surprise" team) each year. Look how easy it is for the Dodgers and Yankees to get whoever they want, yet 95% of the other teams refuse to do it. We always take about the king's ransom we can get for our players but it never plays out like that. It's always just middling garbage who, if we're lucky, might be a decent player for a month or two.
  19. Imagine what might have been if Rocco doesn't leave Happ in 40 pitches too long and then doesn't follow it up by bringing in two guys who have no reason for being in the big leagues. This was a replay of the last Shoemaker start in KC but multiplied.
  20. This is what gets me. Happ is going to end up throwing the same amount of pitches as berrios or maeda when they're sailing along. How about you let pitchers throw more when they're doing well and take them out faster when they're getting shelled?
  21. The sad thing is Colome is the only one anyone could be surprised with being this bad. Robles is actually doing BETTER than what I expected.
