  1. As we all know, the Twins season has been a disaster almost immediately from the get go. The first seven games went as expected, and the Twins saw themselves with a 5-2 record through a weeks worth of games. However, they are now 2 months into the season, and through the entirety of last seasons total games played, and find themselves sitting 13 games below .500 at 24-37. I don't think anybody, even models that predict the bottoming out of a team, saw them playing at this pace. There are many different reasons for the Twins poor start, including the bullpen, injuries to key hitters when they a
  2. Since my last game thread intro, nothing about the state of the Minnesota Twins has changed. They are still playing poor baseball despite having a talented roster on paper, they are playing sloppy, and a player gets hurt nearly every game. This seems to be how things will be remembered for this 2021 Minnesota team, which is sad, but expected as a Minnesota sports fan. With that said, the Yankees come to town for the first time this season, and we know the Twins do not like facing the Yankees. They turn into a shell of themselves and play horrible. With the way this year has gone, I fully expec
  3. I'd send JO out for the 6th after that quick inning. have a BP arm ready for first man on base, but give him the chance.
  4. I like the above thoughts on replay, but if the current form stays I'd like to see the amount of looks NY gets at the play limited to 3. If you don't see anything that warrants an overturn after that, the play should stand. No reason these replays should take 3 or 4 minutes.
  5. Third part of this blog series is out, this time taking a look at infielders.
  6. The Twins have started to turn things around as of late, but are still 11 games below .500 nearly a third of the way through the season. Certainly there is a chance for the squad to go on a long win streak, which features the next 12 games against the lowly Orioles and the free falling Kansas City Royals, but injuries are still piling up, and we've seen the Twins play just as bad as the two aforementioned squads. As of now, I still firmly sit in my stance that the front office would be best suited to have a fire-sale at the deadline, moving every expiring deal, and taking offers on players wit
  7. I agree that none of these names are all that exciting, but I do think Cano can be a successful MR right this second and should be given the chance. Chalmers has closer like stuff as well, but just struggles with the walks. Get him up and see if the stuff plays. As for the top pitching prospects, I see no reason to bring those guys up right now. If the twins were 28-15 instead of 15-28 I would have a different view on the issue, but with a lost season it’s more beneficial for them to continue to develop as starters in the minor leagues.
  8. Second part of the series is up, this time looking at relievers. A few exciting arms that I think TD, as well as Twins territory would be excited about. As always, I appreciate discussion! Thanks for reading.
  9. I wrote a few days ago on starting pitchers that we are likely to see in the dog days of summer. This of course assumes that the Twins are going to continue down the horrid path that they've gotten off to in the first 40 games of the season, and expiring deals like Michael Pineda and J.A. Happ are moved. The bullpen also contains two names who were brought in on one year deals, one throwing very well, and the other getting off to a horrid start. If someone told you that one would be good and one would be bad, you may not be shocked, but the fact that Robles has outperformed Colome is surprisin
  10. Berrios doing all he can to avoid being an attractive trade chip
  11. Safe. Donaldson continues to do wonders for the Angels offense.
  12. Well that does game one. Pretty uninspiring start by thorpe who was once again sitting in the 80s rather than the 90s and didn’t have the command necessary to succeed throwing that slow. Defense was ugly, and the at bats were downright piss poor against a bad starter. Pretty much what we’ve come to expect with this years team, but still upsetting.
  13. They’d have to pay me at least 100 to watch this ****ty team in the upper deck
  14. Yep. Arraez is a DH. Not a 2nd basemen. Not a 3B. Maybe a 1B but doesn’t have power. I’d try to trade him.
  15. A real left fielder catches that ball, but Donaldson has been shaky in the field. Makes some good plays and then does that. Safe to say thorpe probably isn’t good after the smoke and mirrors have faded. The hell is a Phil Gosselin?
