    How is that possible since he was the Twins Daily Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Year in 2015 and 2016, and won like half of the Twins Daily Relief Pitcher of the Month Awards. the last three years...

    Just giving you a hard time... This is good, and Hildy is a great story. I enjoy hearing about 4-year college guys who make it, and Hildenberger was at Cal-Berkeley for 5 years. So it's a great thing.

    Not as plugged into Twins minor league system as I need to be, clearly! And new to Twins Daily. Both, hopefully, things I can rectify this season.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from bdodge22 in Mauer's Future   
    I think it would be horrible if he signed elsewhere. There's not much better than a player who spends his whole career with one team and one organization (Puckett, Hrbek, Ripken), and it's rare. Mauer was strong in 2017. Obviously let's see how 2018 goes. But there isn't anyone right now that's close to ready to take his spot. He's still an on-base machine. He's terrific at first base with the glove. 
     
    In a year, all of that might be different, but I personally would like to see him keep climbing up all of the all-time Twins stats. And, he'll be older, and there will need to be more games where he isn't playing, which may allow them to ease in someone like Brent Rooker if he's ready in 2019. Rooker can play 1B, LF, RF, DH. Mauer can DH more. There is definitely a way to keep him, and they should...
     
    Especially since we'll be talking about $4-8 million instead of $23M.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from Platoon in Minnesota Twins Fans vs The Pohlad Family   
    I may be rare... but i hvae nothing against Jim Pohlad... 1.) it's his company, and he can run it as he sees fit, 2.) the Pohlad family didn't get rich by making foolish decisions, 3.) He has generally kept the Twins between the recommended/typical 48-52% of revenues. They went over that in the second year of Target Field and likely went a little under it in a couple of bad, rebuilding years. 
     
    Contraction was Carl's thing... I'm obviously glad it didn't happen, but I'm not against contraction, in general. For instance, if the Rays and A's or Marlins were contracted, it wouldn't be a bad thing for baseball. I mean, except for the handful of fans in those markets.

    I don't think I'll adjust my usage, given that the Oxford Dictionary defines misogyny as:
     
    Dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
    ‘she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny’
     
    I'm pretty sure it was not your intent to insinuate that behavior such as what is alleged in this case could occur because someone "adored women" too much, but the impression left when I first read the comment comes dangerously close to that, imo.
     
    I would maintain that the extreme mistreatment is reflective of a person who has an "ingrained prejudice against women," whether that prejudice is due to "dislike of" or "contempt for" women or simply a strong feeling that they are entitled to control women. The level of extreme disrespect such behavior reflects comes close enough to me that I'm comfortable using the term in question to describe it.
     
    I understand if your opinion differs and I'm perfectly willing for us to agree to disagree.
     
    I appreciate those who have taken the time to read this piece and, especially, anyone who takes the additional time to offer a well-thought out comment.

    Seth Stohs got a reaction from brvama in Making The Most Of Molitor   
    Bullpen usage is really tough to judge. People always thought Gardy was bad at it. People always thought Tom Kelly was bad at it. It seems to be one of those things that every team's fan base thinks the manager is bad at. I don't know whether or not he's good at it, but I don't think he's horrible either. The one area I do think he's struggled is over-using some guys (Pressly last year, Rogers this year), but when you look at the bullpen as a whole, it's hard to argue that he's been bad at it. This team has won a lot of games because of it. 
     
    And as far as dealing with young players, I don't see that one at all. Tom Kelly was hard on young players, famously with Todd Walker (and as we recall, Mr. Mientkiewicz talked about it while he was still in the minors).  But he also used Chuck Knoblauch in 1991. He's the one that led the way for all those rookies that played a lot in 1998 and 1999. Molitor's been fine. He's dealt with things fine. I personally may not agree with everything, but he's sure eased Hildenberger and Busenitz in to more key roles this second half. He showed a lot of patience with Rosario and Polanco. For every "I didn't like this" thing, there are probably 2-3 "he handled that well's" in there too. 
     
    Baseball is all about second guessing. A baseball manager gets questioned every single game by some. But realize that he's meeting with Falvey and/or Levine every day. He's working with Jeff Pickler and Joe Vavra (both who are big into the numbers) and they're coming up with game plans and in-game strategies. Maybe they have some calculations on some things that we have no idea about. Molitor has been very open to all of the analytics presented to him. 
     
    I'm not saying Molitor is some great manager. I'm not real concerned either way about whether they bring him back or not... But these types of conversations are had by fans from every team in the league.  It will be interesting to see what Falvey and Levine decide.
