Ex-Iowegian's Achievements

  1. To me, this is precisely what I have seen too many times this year. If it is truly an organizational strategy, then the organization needs to be replaced. Even large corporations that spend big money on business analytics make flawed decisions. Some of them even fail miserably.
  2. To me, something is out of whack with this premise. Searching for players on the current roster to comprise a "core 4" and then comparing to the Evil Empire core players, and even to the '87 and '91 Twins seems like an oxymoron or something. Shouldn't a core group have some kind of history together longer than 4-1/2 months of a couple of seasons to qualify? Maybe some kind of mutual accomplishments consisting of more than leading the AL Central for a few months? These guys haven't done anything yet. Sorry, but my thoughts lead more to the core players of The Big Red Machine, or half the roster of the Orioles in the late 60's early 70's. That kind of magnitude.
  3. No. Dear God, please.... no. Too much history of not being able to get the 3rd strike (or the 3rd out) after having done reasonably well over the previous two innings. We have enough of of those guys in the rotation right now. And 1 good game followed by a blowout, a clunker and/or no-decision. Nope. Not interested. Give the kids a chance. Lots more fun that way.
  4. The "positions of strength" are going to be needed to snap the post season losing streak. Swapping out major league talent for a zero net gain, is not adding to the value of the team. Swapping out prospects is what I think should be used. And Sano can be DFA'ed just for his roster spot. There is enough value there just for that.
  5. "Relevant - closely connected or appropriate" While Reusse may not be as closely connected now as he once was, he is still more connected than almost all of us here. And 'appropriate' is way too subjective to try to determine a baseline. Oh, and I'm pretty old, too. But I hope I'm still relevant.
  6. Sooooooooooooo very tired of dealing with this Covid angle. Not out of any inconvenience, but out of sheer exhaustion.
  7. Under almost no circumstance would I think it necessary to trade CC at this year's deadline. There would be no upgrade to the team at all. And the message it would send to the remaining players would be catastrophic.
  8. Damn... Now I'm gonna have that song in my head for the rest of the weekend....
  9. I agree with this. No ticket discounts are applied for not seeing the guys you want to see. Used to "time" the games so we could make sure to see the starting pitcher that was our favorite, or Tony O, Carew and Killebrew on the field all at the same time. It's different if a guy gets hurt and can't play. Which makes me wonder, too, if there are/were discounted tickets for double headers that are only 7 innings long.
