  1. he's a rally killer with his constant K's. last nite..1st two batters on..takes called strike 3. He just can't pick up pitches.... this will be his last year as a Twin. So many twins with 30% K rate..sickening and Boooooring. Hopefully the next wave of players....Miranda....Martin...Lewis..Kiriloff.. etc will come up and lessen the K's...and push the next K machine.. Larnach ...to the bench
  2. has to be in the lineup every day..i personally would rather see him DH and sit Sano down..so sick of the automatic K from Sano.. he's a rally killer. Hopefully Kiriloff starts hitting so he can take over 1B...or Miranda if he takes off at AAA
  3. Arraez not in the opening day lineup??? stupid stupid i dont care if a lefty is on the mound...he has to be in lineup every day
  4. they keep bragging up Alcala...he gives up way too many gopher balls
  5. giving away Rooker doesnt matter..BUT, we now have no closer whatsoever.. At least Rogers was somewhat trustworthy. Now who closes??? there is no one to trust.. i havent seen Duran enough to judge..but IMO we have a very low rated bullpen..not enough guys that miss bats. Looks like if the Twins want a winning season they will have to be scoring 8 plus a game and hope we can hold opponent to 7 !!!
  6. Lets hope Martin rakes the next couple weeks and he moves up the ladder ahead of Rooker / Larnach
  7. Kirilloff in LF...My Vote for 4th outfielder would be Austin Martin. ..the kid can play!!Just NO to Cave, Rooker and Larnach..nothing but K Kings. They will probably go with Gordon as super Utility. Game 1 - Arraez DH, Buxton CF, Polanco 2B, Correa SS, Kirilloff LF, Sano 1B, Kepler RF, Jeffers C, Ursela 3B
  8. just make sure he's in the lineup every day (occasional day off)...3B, 2B, DH, pure hitter..fun to watch play....just a pleasure to watch a player these days that doesnt K 30% of the time
  9. sorry, but, Rortvedt will never be a #1 catcher in the bigs.. i say good riddance. Adding Story , Peneida + lefty starter would help..Gray, Ryan, Ober, Bundy?? + ? ... we have the hitting..but obviously pitching is still not up to beating the big boys
  10. Rortvedt gone..good riddance..having him in the lineup is like having the pitchers hitting in the NL. Yes, he's good defensively..but cant hit .200.. Hopefully all this leads to getting a top SS...and i see it as a money move + a way to get Miranda up sooner. Arraez has to play every day too...this frees up some time at 3B, LF, DH, 2B for him in a rotation
  11. i hope they re-sign Pineda.......Ober- Ryan - Pineda would be a good 3-4-5 (in any order) but this team still needs a #1 - #2 and its not Bundy. we need a Lefty or 2. Pohland needs to throw a lotta cash out and get Rodon !!!
  12. Martin could very well be our starting LF soon. Larnach just didnt get it last year..nothing but a K King. I would have no problem with Arraez as the DH ( he's a hitting, OBP machine and needs to play every day n this lineup)...Put Martin in LF..then Alternation of the 4-Arraez, Kiriloff, Sano and Donaldson at 1B, 3B, DH. we still need an everyday SS. imagine lineup - Arraez, Polanco, Buxton, Donaldson, Kiriloff, Garver, Kepler, Martin, SS? this could all change if Miranda really takes off or Larnach actually learns how to pick up pitches..nice luxury to have
  13. Good solid ballplayers ... More so with Polanco. Kepler needs to cut down on the K's. If Kiriloff can make a major jump and Buxton stays healthy this makes a great middle lineup. All of this wont matter though if we dont get pitching..starters and bullpen. current roster of arms wont get this team to the playoffs
  14. guy hits .214 and you label him potential future top prospect????? Twins have enough K Kings in the entire organization.. how about start focusing on Plate discipline? its sickening watching baseball anymore with all the flailing away at the plate...or just plain watching strike 3 go by.
  15. sorry...but i can never get too excited about any players that K as much as all these guys and cant even hit .250 in the minors. We needs Stars..not average Joe players that hit .230 and K at a 30% + rate. Really excited to see what Miranda can do when he jumps up...and then Austin Martin and Wallner. Lewis still has a lot of improving to do before he can can up and help.
