  1. Ryan was a class act , he stayed when contractions were being discussed and he could have gone to Toronto who did offer him the same position fir the blue jays .... And he was a good judge of talent , he worked harder than any GM that I know of , he was always scouting the minor league games looking for talent .... Is he still with Philadelphia Phillies , they hired him in 2021 ????
  2. Yes it is and I like it , shouldn't have put it that way ,,,, his composure got flustered last night with balls and strikes and you can't win many games that way ...
  3. On May 3rd , Ryan wasn't as smooth in his start of just under 5 innings , but on May 10th he was way off the mark and got flustered more when a few calls weren't called strikes .. Hopefully it is a lesson we'll learned , seems to me that he thinks he should win every game ,
  4. Glad we are winning but this series with Houston will be a test , good pitching and hitting Next series could be alittle easier Cleveland has good pitching , have heard there hitters are warming up . Go twins
  5. If pagan would have blown a couple of those saves and lost it would have reminded me of RD ( RON DAVIS ) ,,, Man was I on the edge of seat
  6. Sonny gray to start , Cole sands promoted yesterday to the club and sent back to AAA without pitching , Nothing like messing with one head , FO and Rocko are still pulling the strings
  7. If Bundy's last two starts are any indication , Last night being his worst ... He won't be in the rotation , archer is still a question mark but is pitching in the mid 90's ,,, they just are not turning him loose yet as he builds up stamina due to late signing and short spring training
  8. I do see a Better vibe or chemistry with the players , was donaldson a prima Donna , of course he was , did that reflect towards a negative clubhouse , baldelli says no
  9. Is the twins rotation for real is the question !!!! All depends your definition of real , Are they good or are they bad ? ,,, So far the starting pitching has been decent with the exception of a few starts , Will it continue ? , it will have its ups and downs just like any teams pitching staff .... Does it have what it takes to win during the season ( better than last year's odds ) The real question though is Does it have what it takes to win once we get to the playoffs ?
  10. I texted my friends that didn't see the same thing ,They missed a 30 million dollar catch ,,, of course the can see it later in highlights ...
  11. They look new and improved and playing great ball the past dozen games ,, still small concerns on starting pitching ( we have depth ) .... bullpen is the biggest concern where we are not competitive enough ( not alot of depth ) ,,, Bullpens win games .... Twins will win games through the season but playoffs come down to pitching ( studs , aces and bulldogs )
  12. Let's just say 500 would be competitive but if thing goes good we could do better .. We are already stricken with the injury bug on a half a dozen players ... we started out bad , but have only played good baseball in the last dozen games ... Still not sure what their identity is ...
  13. No concerns at firstbase , Arreaz and miranda for now ,,, see how it goes ... Like most , catcher is not a strength ... keep the ball in front of you boys , block it , smother it , whatever you have to do Last year's catching even wasn't that good as there was alot of wild pitches and passed balls ,,, alot of those wild pitches should have been call passed balls In my opinion but with a runner moving up a base they called it a wild pitch ... Catching is a problem for most teams in the league as to many wild pitches or passed balls probably led to a record of runners scoring from third base ....
  14. My concern is still the bullpen ,,, duffey , pagan , stashak and theilbar ,,, have not looked all to impressive but maybe a couple of them will work it out .... What has impressed me this past week of games is the the twins batters are hitting alot of doubles ... way better and exciting baseball than a bunch of solo homeruns ,,, lots of running the bases and not homerun trots ..... Last night the twins got 10 hits , 7 of those hits were doubles , 2 singles and 1 three run game changing bomba .... Good offensive game, Highlight on defense : Correa made an awesome catch with his back to the infield in no man's land ...
