    Sundays stats for Buxton/Gallo and Kepler were quite impressive......again , why is Wallner not getting his chance????

    Only if a drunk at happy hour makes the trades and not the brain trust we have now.
    Cruz trade was fantastic. Araez for Lopez pretty good-fair to both sides.. But almost every other one has been horrible.  I'm sure I'm missing one here so don't jump down my throat. But the brain trust have generally screwed up for the most part.
    Mahle and Paddock were horribly wrong. Both pitchers damaged goods and we knew it.
    Kid from Pirates has gone south extremely fast.
    Maeda ok. One good year but then the rails came off. Brusder would look awful good in our pen.  So would Taylor yet.
     
    It's tough. 
    NOT trading Kepler last winter has also hurt so non trades are a problem too.  Be lucky to get a A ball lottery ticket now , but I'd still trade him to open doors for Wallner.

    On a different note how has the batting coach kept his job??
    How many games can the Twins get 12-15 strikeouts and only 2/3 walks??
    How many horrible non professional at bats per game can we be forced to watch??  They have 10-12 ab's per game that are horribly unprofessional.  Polonco and Jeffers/AK  and Farmer seem to do ok.   But way to many horrible at bats per game..
    Either the hitting coach needs to fired , or if he's just a extension of the brain trusts thoughts then they should be gone.

    Kepler needed to go last winter.   They should have took anything for him. He's been putrid since his juice ball year. No other way to say it.  Gold glove OF Gallo playing 1B is not ideal , but that's your brain trust for ya....Take a proven stud in the corner Of positions and make him play very , very average 1B
    Don't get me started on Buxton not playing the OF at all.  That really binds up the best lineup they could play.
    Baldelli getting a extension is flat out ridiculous.   A  game lead in the worst division in all of MLB is nothing to brag about.  This team should be up by 6/7 with a competent manager.  But he's just a puppet for the front office.  God almighty , his handling of Pagan alone could make a 3 game swing. LH Taylor Rodgers would look good out of that pen right???

    Sloppy play in the field and the worst manager I can remember since Billy Gardner.  Ray Charles could use his pitching staff better.

    Take Pagan on a road trip to North Dakota and leave him in the middle of no where.   Guys only on the roster because management wont admit they totally blew it on that trade.  Some town out there must need a terrible long reliever option on their townball team.

    Castro goes back down , AK can be brought back very ,  very slowly in the minors and Garlick goes back down.   That takes care of 2 spots and with the never ending injuries I don't think they will have to worry about 3 at a time.  If it honestly does then Julien goes back down.

    The front office has hitched it's wagon to Pagan. If he fail's this year it's time to replace the front office.   As horrendous as the Pagan trade turned out , this doubles down the buffoonery in trusting Pagan........their jobs had BETTER be on the line now with this dumb decision.
