  1. The nibbling was the thing that really annoyed me. Gibson would start-off having some good innings. Then, all of a sudden, crap. Couldn't roll a sinker over the plate. Still, only 31. I just don't know. The inconsistency is really aggravating.
  2. I love the fact that Buxton's offense is coming around. Is there any way he will learn to stop smashing into the outfield walls like that? 5 years in the MLB and I would think he would learn how to read that long of a drive and take it off the wall. Still, only 25........
  3. Just adding my 2 cents worth: This medication (Hydrochlorothiazide) is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. And it's fun to pronounce. I'm a type-2 diabetic and my doctor subscribed that as one of the drugs I've used for about 6 years. Doctors refer to is as a diuretic. I referred to it as the piss-pill. I did my research and asked my doctor to scratch that off my meds list.
  4. Not sure what I think of this. I always thought of Molitor as a fillin until the dynamic duo get their system up and running.
  5. If your plan for next season is to reset the lineup, then I don't see why management would even think about keeping Dozier. With the trades that have already been implemented (and getting a crop of MiLBer's ), I'm seeing a tough road to contention for the foreseeable future.
  6. When the word "solid" is used, I usually run for the hills :-) But seriously, I hope he can turn into a good innings eater for the Twins.
  7. I'm confused. Hale? http://reviewtvshows.siterubix.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Alan-Hale-Jr..jpg
  8. I haven't seen any games so far this year. But at a whole 23 games into the season and only 3 1/2 games out? And with last season with a +.500 record since Methuselah was a pup? OK, it only seems like that long. I've always been on the side that says "Wait until the temps start getting warmer before making a decision. " Santana is coming back and Morrison and Sano should be ready to blast away.
  9. Twins options on a Dozier trade are probably less than last year. The other problem is Polanco's suspension. Trade Dozier now and take whatever you can get? And to coin a phrase: What's on second!
  10. I've long said that the Save is a useless stat. In 2012, Fangraphs wrote an article on "Shutdowns and Meltdowns: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/shutdowns-and-meltdowns-should-kill-the-save/
  11. Boy, I sure hope some of those MiLB Starting prospects are ready to go sometime this year.
  12. I'm on the side that says: Be patient with Kepler. He's got a little over 1,000 PA's coming into this season, so I'm hopeful Max is ready for a break-out season. Buxton could really use a quick start this year. Rosario: Told ya so :-)
  13. Getting Logan Morrison to be the DH was part of some nice moves by the new FO. Nothing overwhelming, but seems more like a level of trust in the current MiLB prospects. Maybe...
