  1. Gleeman stated the need for OF help with all the injuries. I've read O'dubell Hererra and JBJ have been DFA's. I wonder if the Twins will be looking for these kinds of pick ups for some short term help?
  2. Provis and Gladden really make the strike zone for Twins pitchers seem small,
  3. Twins epitimise "best of the worst and worst of the best"
  4. Is everyone else shut out of mlb.tv too? even though it's the "free game of the day"?
  5. It is one thing to look for a pitch to drive. It is another to try to crush ANY pitch. I know for a rube like me it's easier said than done, but more often than not this year I've seen our batters go up WRISP with seemingly no plan and no awareness of who is behind them in the order. Watching Urshela's knees buckle and check swing into a week groundball 1-2-3 double play with bases loaded, no out, on a 0-0 offering earlier this year just killed me.
  6. Not sure if I should be infuriated that the Twins are .500 in this stretch against bottom feeders or happy this stretch of bottom feeders is while the teams health is in disarray.
  7. The way it feels is that the Twins have one (Ryan), maybe two(Gray) starters, and the rest have been treated as middle inning releif making every game a bull pen game. So no wonder the bullpen success starts to wane. I'm all for health and build up. But if we're a quarter way in, and healthy "starters" can only make it 3-4 innings, somthing needs to change. Maybe asking a healthy starter go 6-7 innings when their pitch counts are reasonable instead of yanking him just because the lineup turned over a second time. A third time through the order for Archer has to be just as bad as a completely taxed bullpen.
  8. I know Kepler just hit a grand slam a few days ago but I still swear the Twins are the only team that can have bases juiced with no outs and not score A run. They do it all the time with less than two out. They just take terible at bats. Way to many strike outs.
  9. The Twins planned for pitching depth due to likely IL stints. I think they have gotten lucky, from and outsiders perspective, with the quality of that depth with a number of unproven arms. I think of everything in this article that may be what other teams try to mimmic but I doubt this kind of quality depth will be found across the league year in and year out.
  10. Pitching: Shouldn't Dobnyk be able to help SP when he returns from the IL? Will Maeda be back in time to see if he can make a meaningful impact down the streach?
  11. I hope when that contract ends the Twins will find something that allows 1-2 games a week on a local channel. Fox 9+ or 45. If fans are losing interest, give it to them for free! That's how you'll get kids invested. Then when they are adults they'll spend money on the greater array of products. Full season streaming, season ticket packages, merchendise, etcetera.
