  1. Mark, excellent analysis!
  2. Great player! One of my favorites but not a good announcer.
  3. Not impressed by Dobnak at all. When our front signs a Uber driver to pitch in a big league game it shows you how far we have fallen.
  4. It could be that his level is AAA not the big leagues.
  5. Morneau is so dull and speaks in a monotone voice. I turn the sound down to where it is just a mumbling sound. Doesn’t matter now that I’m going to quit watching and just check the score once in a awhile. This team and management is so bad. The real reason they hired Johnson was so they could pick up reclamation projects and he can develop them. Save the Pohlads a lot of money. And what was the reason for not signing May? Can’t remember.
  6. Rortvedt might be the weakest, or one of the weakest hitters I’ve seen in the major leagues. I know it defense,.....but?
  7. When we were winning Falvey was giving interviews constantly. Maybe he is in hiding now. Unless he gave one yesterday.
  8. When things are going good Falvey is doing interviews constantly and in the news. Where is he now?
  9. Duffy’s problem appears to be conditioning. Does the team ever work on conditioning? Appears not with Rocco’s to each his own philosophy. Country club atmosphere...Lucky the Wild is playing tonight.
  10. I find this baseball unwatchable. Lucky the Wild is still playing and golf is enjoyable. Does front office think their the smartest guys in the room now? And the Pohlad’s trying to cut corners with a potentially good team. And too much analytics....just play the best players. And I don’t think Rocco thinks like winner.
  11. He is proving that he is a 25 million a year player. Yes, he’ll be back in Georgia some day.
  12. Ashbury...very good analysis . IMO the front office blew this one.....prediction: he’ll be back in Georgia, his home state.
  13. Are they taking on the personality of the manager. Laid back and no emotion and fire. Really miss Eddie. Really unwatchable.
  14. Add in Jeffers and catching is a big problem. Jeffers looks extremely weak against big league pitching. And Rooker appears to not be a big league hitter. One thing that the writer doesn’t mention is that Rosario is a big loss. He could do it all...hitting and fielding and an emotional leader.
  15. They are taking on the personality of the manager. Too relaxed, no fight and too laid back. And too much analytics instead of emphasizing hustle and determination. They look disinterested and certainly out of baseball conditioning. Looks like a big country club atmosphere. Hard too watch...good thing for hockey tonight and golf on the weekends.
  16. After reading the 4th paragraph I was wondering if I was reading about baseball or in some statistics class. I know this is in the minority on this site but this type of stuff is hurting baseball. Baseball needs more action for fans not over analysis. Reusse recently wrote a great article on Baldelli that symbolizes the problems with baseball. Baseball needs more excitement to keep up with football and basketball. The other day I watched hockey instead of baseball and in the past that never would happen.
  17. Yes, extremely poor managing. I also think that catching is a problem. Championship teams have solid catching. But, it’s not as glaring as the thoughts of the other posters. Just a bad team now....as a person who hardly missed a game over the years.....just hard to watch. Turned them off last night. But, the front office are not traditional in baseball operations and they have their plan.
  18. Guys like most of these writers are more interested in analytics than baseball. They know more about statistics than the game itself. As a life long fan the game is becoming too boring. Too many strikeouts and home runs. Not enough action. Really disagree with the part about the bullpen.
  19. The manager has to use feel and common sense at times. He just sticks to his pre-game plan no matter what. No creativity at all....
  20. Disagree with your analysis. To me Bert was not clownish but humorous. And I don’t agree that Morneau’s robotic style can be fixed. You can’t change personality.
  21. What is the reason for not putting Rogers in against Seager? I think the manager needs a little more feel in managing games. Seems like everything is pre-planned.
