  1. Excessive shifting creates the need for versatile players. Putting guys out of their strength positions. I want specialists playing in their best positions. Versatility is over rated, IMHO.
  2. Yes to this, Squirrel. Let's enjoy his success. And Kepler's two home runs. And any other good things that we see happen on the field. Here's to hoping for more successes from any Twin.
  3. I wish someone would have edited Rocco's script to include an opportunity for Maggi to step onto the field while he was up/over.
  4. IMO, Larnach is defensive liability. Pretty slow. Below average arm. Poor fundamentals and a low level skill set. He better hit the cover off the ball. I'd take Kepler's defense. Even though he has lost all signs of being a good hitter. How did he get so bad? He is clueless these days.
  5. If the best pitcher on your team would also be the best pitcher on a different team, he would be in my definition of Ace. Exceptions allowed
  6. I'd take Kepler's RF defense over Rooker, or Larnach, or Kirilloff, or anyone else on the roster. I think defense is one reason we moved on from Rosario. Give me specialists over utility and versatility every day.
  7. Plenty of time to bake some fresh cookies to wash the beer down.
  8. My wife is a Yankee fan. She said she won't miss Torres if the Yankees decide to upgrade from him. Given that, I say no to a trade that would bring him to the Twins.
  9. Polanco has to stay at 2b. Not Arraez, unless they trade Jorge. So I say let's see what Gordon can do at SS. Run him out there for the rest of the season. Let him get comfortable, at least for a few games.
  10. There is an interesting read over in a Yankees article citing the 4 players their organization has "mismanaged." Gil is one of those 4. Badly screwed.
  11. Cookies AND beer? The breakfast of champions!
  12. Good game. I watch Ryan get swings and misses and wonder why and how. Batters are reacting with surprise. Location. Location. Strikes up, down, in and out. Impressive so far. Fun to watch A bit of hope.
  13. Maybe Dobnak lost his feel when they took away all the stickem. I can't see him helping us. It's too bad about that contract.
  14. I was hoping he would have shaved and gotten a haircut. But instead it's, "Let the kids play."
  15. Ryan did his job pretty nicely. They beat us one good swung to our none. One pitch. One swing. We just didn't get ours. Good job, Joe. Not good enough unfortunately. How about Rooker though? 2 hits. Small victories.
  16. Ober's uptick in velocity looks meteoric. Nice. But is one mph really significant? Really, not so much I think.

    Just Dreamin'

    I am finally feeling comfortable being in the room with so many others who are speaking out against Polanco moving back to ss. It felt like I was alone. His bat plays. But he is not what we need at ss. Simmons makes us better. Not perfect, but better. Glove first.
  18. How about if we intentionally walk the first 2 hitters today. Then turn a first pitch triple play. A one-pitch inning. We'd have to have a name for it. It would help me forget about that 3 pitch inning from the previous game.
  19. We should keep watching this season because.....? I'd rather watch our future rotation pitch than the castoffs we are getting these days. All due respect to the castoffs.
  20. That Voit at bat was the game breaker, imo. Ump squeezed us bad. Then a terrible 0 two pitch. Boom.
