Jeff A's Achievements

  1. I agree that they're not retooling. I'm not sure if they're rebuilding, because I'm not sure what they're trying to build. If they're going to trade away their good young players as soon as they qualify for high salaries, they're never going to build anything.
  2. The trade of Berrios basically announced that the Twins were not interested in competing for a championship. It's one thing when you say you can't afford Gerrit Cole or Max Scherzer. But if you can't afford Jose Berrios, you're basically saying you can't afford good starting pitchers, and you're not going to win without them.
  3. Rod Carew had 128 career sacrifice hits (a number that is just sacrifice bunts and does not include sacrifice flies). I don't know how many bunt singles he had, but to say that "Rod Carew attempted to bunt 126 times" in his career is clearly incorrect.
  4. Can you explain the Vasquez trade to me? Not that I think he'll be anything great, but he's 27 and is 4-0, 3.61, 1.02 WHIP with 68 strikeouts in 42.1 innings in St. Paul. Berman is 26, has never hit above Class A, and has barely played above AA. I don't get it.
  5. I see that Ernie De La Trinidad came out in the third inning. Any word on what's up with him?
  6. I see that Julien came out of the game in the ninth inning. Do you know why?
  7. Why did the Saints leave Refsnyder, who's been an infielder most of his career, in the outfield, and instead play Telis and Broxton in the infield?
  8. I assume "Brain Meyer" was a typo, but it would be really cool to have a manger named Brain.
  9. I'm getting to the point where I don't care that much whether they play or not. It would be nice if they did, but if not, I can find plenty of other things to do.
  10. What's up with Paco Rodriguez starting two of the last three games and pitching one inning? Is he being used as an "opener"?
  11. I don't understand the "Plates" thing. I get that it's a promotion of some sort, but what are they promoting? And why "Plates"?
  12. Watson's fielding error was an infield popup that no one took charge of. He tried to catch it at the last second and was charged with the error, but it was really a ball that one of the infielders (pretty much any of them) should have caught.
