  1. I don't get understand where you're going with this. Donaldson made the play, the run scores even if its a clean play. That's right, trade him because he isn't worth what he's being paid....
  2. The run scores regardless of where Donaldson's throw is, they still got the out......
  3. And he gets credit for a save.....Rolaids Fireman of the year Award.....
  4. He was at 7, the MLB record is 10. Long ways to go, even against the Cubs....
  5. Astudillo and Cruz (if they signed him) would be in the way of getting the younger guys up. Cabbage, Miranda, Lewis, and Martin should all be up at some point next year. Kirilloff, Larnach and Buxton should all be healthy (hopefully) and need to play regularly. Astudillo could place hold, but Cruz would be a luxury, a nice luxury, but still a luxury.
  6. I would be happy never seeing Arraez play 3B again. He has a hard time making the throw and he should have more fielding errors as he has had a lot of balls hit off his glove. If they could package Kepler and Arraez for starting pitcher that would be a plus. C - Garver 1B - Kirilloff 2B - Polanco SS - FA (Galvis, J. Iglesias)? 3B - Donaldson LF - Larnach CF - Buxton RF - Kepler Bench/DH - Sano, Gordon, Miranda, Jeffers, Rooker/Refsnyder/Garlick/Cave(pick 1, 2 if Kepler is traded)
  7. This years team has been terrible defensively; a lot of errors (physical and mental), misplayed balls that could have been called errors, throws to the wrong base, missed cut-off men, etc... This then makes me wonder if the pitchers are unable to relax on the mound, trying to be too perfect, not pitching "loose." Constantly throwing from the stretch, having to throw extra pitches, trying to make the perfect pitch to get the strike out, etc... could be hindering their development. We are seeing a lot of bad pitching seasons here.
  8. I think they keep him as a mentor/on field coach for Miranda. I also think they work out some sort of rotation @ 3B, 1B, DH and LF/RF with Sano (who I personally would like to see traded), Donaldson, Miranda, Kirilloff and Larnach. Days off and positional flexibility may help keep everyone on the field and performing.
  9. Umpire was doing a good job, now calling strikes out of the zone.
  10. 7 inning game, still need to go 5 to get the win? Can't wait for this to be done, as well as the runner on second rule for extra innings.
  11. Go look at Baseball Savant, Nelson was inconsistent with close pitches, at best. There were some clearly outside the zone called strikes, and the pitches around the strike zone box were very inconsistent.
  12. MLB generally recycles front office personnel, so which team's failure(s) do want to replace them with?
  13. Was thinking to myself during the game that Benintendi was killing the Twins this year, so I looked his numbers up. He is!! .405/.422/.833 slash line with 5 HR's and 15 RBI in 12 games
  14. I think he would have beat the throw if no runner on first....
  15. I think we saw two throwing errors from him in a span of a couple games not too long ago....
  16. Agreed, even found a couple of instances where Bryce Harper bunted to beat the shift....

  18. Definitely doesn't belong here, 21 pitches to get through 2 innings, no excuse for that
