    RpR got a reaction from Blyleven2011 in Does it Matter How the Twins Reach the Postseason?   
    Whether or not they make the post season is not so important to me but what does mean a lot is how they do against some top teams.
    If they lost the series to the Royals or Tigers would not bother me IF they split or win the series against Dodger and Yankees.
    How they do against those teams, mean more to me that losing to division rivals.

    Winning series are nice  and maybe you are that person  that thinks that is all the matters ....
    It does matter but are they really  that exciting  , baseball should be exciting  and A long winning streak will generate alot of excitement about the team and what they might be capable of,,,, it should raise your hope  in the team and players that they can contend and not just be competitive  ( favley says competitive ,, I say contender )...
    A long winning streak or muti winning streak tells a fan and not just a twins fan but of mlb teams , what the team is made of , (  you have to do everything right and have just alittle luck  to keep the winning streak going  , you need discipline , fundamentals , and good coaching, ) .,,
    those that usually do  are contenders and win a division ,, 
    I have seen  many teams with multiple winning streaks  of ten games or more this year and most of those teams are leading there divisions except for Atlanta , Baltimore and Seattle... 
    You don't have to agree with this and that's OK  ,,, 
    I watch the twins or listen on the radio and don't miss many games unless out of the country  , but I also tune into other games played and watch the standings .... what's the longest winning streak in our central division  , twins have 1 small 7 game winning streak  ,,, What do the others have  ( Chicago  , Cleveland,  Detroit or Kansas city  ) ??? ,,,
    Look at the win / loss in the central  , its the worst  , twins were the last leader at the time to get to 50 wins this year  , my thought was pathetic  , even Milwaukee beat us to their 50th win   in their central  ....
    I live for spring training and the world series and everything in-between ....

    I am in total agreement with this post. Further, I'm a little confused by those who seem to be Twins fans not caring or not believing that winning the AL Central and/or being in competition for the postseason is worthwhile because the Twins are not favorites to win it all. I'm still enjoying a team that is light years better than what we witnessed last year. 85 wins was a very favorable forecast for the 2022 Twins and this is within reason still.

    While this is true, it was players hitting under .200 (Muncy and Gallo) who really hurt the Twins last night.

    Quite honestly the team would benefit from a coaching staff reboot. Especially in the hitting department. Way too much regression and underachieving. Would also be nice to get even remotely close to playing fundamental baseball again. We’ve been god awful in that department for several years now.

    Agree we got to do something to help this roster. Beckham can't hit and doesn't bring a lot of defensive value. Understand the thinking, he hit in AAA so maybe he would hit in the bigs. Turned out to be wrong. Replace him with Palacios, play Palacios 1-2 days a week at SS with Correa DHing 1 and sitting 1. IL either Kepler or Buxton for 10 days depending on how much you think Buxton can play.  Whoever goes misses 3 against LAA,  3 against KC, and 3 of the 4 against Texas. Replacement is either Helman or Contreras. Consider an option/DFA for Cave - nice story but we're back to the same old thing with his 3 SOs last night, 7 SOs in last 25 ABs -  and bring up the other of Helman or Palacios. Bring up Aaron Sanchez, either to pitch long relief or start in place of Archer, DFA Pagan. Up - Palacios, Helman, Contreras, Sanchez. Down or Il - Pagan, Cave, Beckham, and either Buxton or Kepler. I  may be rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic but may give us a spark.

    Rocco has been a head scratcher all season.  His lineup decisions have defied logic all year. He's the reason Twins are floundering and probably won't make playoffs.  He has poor in game management and more head scratching managing his pitching staff.

    This is the second day in a row, where the catcher tries stop a base stealer and Polanco instead of making sure he catches the ball , even if it will not stop the runner kets it go by.
    He might as well close his eyes, maybe he does.
