    Seth Stohs got a reaction from Squirrel in Why no heart? THIS is why... Continuation Discussion   
    It was a running full speed toward a wall, taking a look at said wall (looking away from the ball) and then just an error. Not a lack of hear or 'brain.' I mean, we could look at every error, or poor running play and say it's lack of heart. I think @Doc Munson said it right when he said "perceived" lack of heart. To those watching on TV or in the stands who don't get the game, it can look like lack of caring. Especially when the guys handle it well and don't outwardly show their disappointment or anger in self.

    How do we measure "Heart"? How can we see on TV if they're playing with "Heart"? What does that even mean?
    How does a player 'show leadership'? How can we visually see on TV who the leaders are?

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from wabene in This team has no heart   
    It might exist... but a lot of people didn't think that Joe Mauer was competitive because he was so cool and calm. That was often interpreted as not having heart and that couldn't be further from the truth. 
    I would certainly think that Carlos Correa plays with heart. Arraez looks like he does, though injured. I am certain all the young players are playing with a lot of heart. 
    It's not about quantifying it as much as just that there is absolutely no way of knowing. 
    Playing poorly, or being inexperienced, or making errors, doesn't mean that they aren't playing with heart.

    Hate to say it but when a player runs hard, too far ,is thrown out, that is heart, trying to do more they he/they can but trying any way.
    IF it is successful, even better.
    Twins run game shows who has heart and who does not; I love to watch Leon get his short legs moving down the base line, that is heart. --  (as much as he was ridiculed, Astudillo had more heart than 98.6 percent of this team this year.)

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from bean5302 in Dump the Arizona Fall League   
    I like the AFL as a prospect-focused league. 
    I like that the Twins primarily stopped playing any Instructional League games. They've all played enough games during the season, except some injured guys, so I like that the time spent there is based in learning and teaching, in fundamentals in a low-stress environment. The minor leaguers have been playing since March. The college draft picks have been playing since February. Even the high school kids taken have been playing since March or so. This is where the plethora of coaches and coordinators can work with players on their individual improvement programs.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from DocBauer in Twins prospects that I was wrong on   
    I'm not sure on Rich Becker. He had a couple of nice OBP seasons... His big issue was the strikeouts, so you wonder if he played today if teams would even care. He'd be an on-base machine with some power.  
    As for Romero, he was a mid-to-upper 90s guy who had some really nice starts at the beginning of his career. Lots of weird stuff there. 
    Agree on Jay too. Keith Law was big on him and thinks the Twins should have kept him starting longer, but as you said, at minimum, I thought he'd be a strong lefty out of the bullpen. The FB/SL combo was Perkins-like. But then he had lots of arm issues, like Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and such.

    Seth Stohs reacted to jmlease1 in Twins prospects that I was wrong on   
    I was fooled by Romero too. Thought for sure he was going to be a power arm out of the twins bullpen for years. Whoops! I was convinced that he just needed a little time to settle in and things would be great, that he'd shown enough as a starter that he could make the transition. Nope, nope, and nope.
    The others on the list i don't think I was ever that attached to. They kinda fell into the "hey, maybe this guy can turn out to be somebody!" bucket where I was rooting for them, but not necessarily all that convinced.
    Chris Parmelee, on the other hand...I jumped all over that hype train, thought he was going to take over for Cuddyer and we wouldn't miss a beat. but I'm grateful to Mr. Parmelee, who taught me to be skeptical of September call-ups and Small Sample Size.

    I also like how the Twins go after unsigned draftees and trade or sign them late. Some notables: CHuck Baker, Pat Light, Chris Heston, Clete Thomas, Matt Macri, Jesse Orosco and recently Kyle Barraclough. Plus they have Elliot Soto currently in St. Paul.
    How would the Twins success have been over the years if they ahd signed Steve Garvey, Mark Grace, Tim Belcher, Jason Vargas, Adam Lind amongst others?

    I had to 'clear the mechanism' and reread this. It is absolutely fantastic, especially some of the extra little notes that really make it. 
    Twins scout Jack Powell is also in Trouble with the Curve. I'd have to include him.
    The first baseman/mom's boyfriend in Little Big League has to be considered.... And that team's shortstop was Kevin Elster, so he has to be considered, as does former Saints hitter Leon "Bull" Durham. 
    I was going to say Jim Morris as a lefty-reliever, but he's real.
