    big dog reacted to IndianaTwin in 3 Options for Royce Lewis When Carlos Correa Returns   
    Oh, I completely agree -- I just look for any excuse to pull out that clip.
    Watching it again, I realized that while I thought the "It's real hard" line was the best one, the "Maybe I can teach one of (the fans)" is also pretty awesome.

    I feel like it's time for an article about how good the bullpen has been.

    I did not expect to see Lewis excel to this degree coming off of two straight lost years.  He continues to impress and it's fun to watch.
    It's great to see him taking the opportunity and running with it.  Love to see him forcing the issue to keep him up.

    I'm grooving on Cano. Looks like a real pitcher. And how did we ever steal this Sanchez guy from the Yankees?

    I remember putting quarter after quarter to play Space Invaders and Donkey Kong at the Arcade. I remember sporting a mullet and my girl wearing shoulder pads and renting a movie to watch at Blockbuster and getting fined for late return. I remember not having to take my shoes off at the airport. 
    Times change. This isn't just a Rocco thing once you look around the league.

    There is a poll active on Twinsdaily that asks "What should be done with Lewis once Correa returns"?
    The Majority of respondents feel Lewis should be sent back down to AAA. 
    It's not surprising but yet remains disappointing that so many just can't see anything besides the tiny box that they feel players must be placed in and therefore no room at the inn. 
    Lewis sent down while performing like he has just to keep others on the roster who are performing nowhere close to Lewis... would cause... the first clear appearance of unmistakable erosion in my support of the front office.
    I understand small sample sizes and I understand that the league will make adjustments to him that could cause problems but I'll say it. He is our 4th best position player at this moment in time. 
    When Correa comes back... Lewis will do a great job in a super utility role.

    But I hope more strongly Correa heals quickly and is back in a couple weeks.

    Tonight's shout out goes to the bullpen, which I complained about all winter, but which has been pretty solid overall.

    He's looking great so far. Here's how he compares to Graterol in the first three weeks:
    JD 8 appearances, 12 innings, 8 H, 4 ER, 2 HR, 2 BB, 19 K, 0.833 WHIP
    BG 9 appearances, 8 innings, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 HR, 5 BB, 9 K, 1.125 WHIP
    I was really excited by Brusdar's stuff, but Jhoan is pretty spectacular.

    Looks like we should get our first look at Stankiewicz in CR sometime the middle of the upcoming homestand. I'm looking forward to it. Gotta love to see a guy who comes in with little fanfare and just does the job every time he gets handed the ball.

    big dog reacted to PatPfund in So, about that pitching pipeline…   
    Even more ready, IMHO, are three RPs who are not on the 40-man. Minaya, Cotton, and Smeltzer all have MLB experience, and all are pitching better this year then Sands, Henriquez, and Moran (and more to the point better than Duffey, Thielbar, and Stashak). The latter two of the parentheticals have had decent low-leverage mop ups recently, but I don't want either in tight late-game situations, and another meltdown or two should really force a move. (I also agree Duffey has more leash, but if he doesn't consistently right the ship, and the Twins otherwise stay good, he will force them to make a move, because they finally have options.)

    The next time you feel like you are not good at what you are trying, remember that these are the best ballplayers on the planet. If they can do that occasionally, you can make a mistake and still be good at what you want to do.
