  1. I think its nice Kepler hit a bomb, but we all should be alarmed at how bad he has been this year. One good year in minor leagues, and one good MLB season in 2019. Plus he's regressed in his defense a bit.. If we can trade him in the off season we absolutely have to. His price tag is very reasonable, but he just doesn't move the needle..
  2. Kepler has been ok to awful almost every year at the show except for 2019? He's had plenty of at bats to see what he is. I too was bumming on Polanco, but I chalked it up to his injury and figured he just was not going to recover. He did and like you Nick I was wrong. I do not see the same thing with Max. Sunday was my favorite day against the Yankees in like 13 years.
  3. Kepler had one dominant MiLb season. It was good. His other stats suggested he would be an on base machine. He has not been that, at all. Even at the discounted rate over term, he's been a disappointment. Rooker and his 4 Ks is what everyone has always said he was. Dave Kingman comp, except not that good. Keep playing him, we have to this year, but not good.
  4. Gordon will find himself a role in the majors? Maybe on a team like the current Twins one, which is terrible, but not on many more. I would say he doesn't get on base at an average pace or hit for any type of average slugging percentage. Well below on both, even for a utility guy. Also his fielding in the infield is nothing special. Maybe he runs at an average to above average pace? I am fine if the Twins want to play him more this year, but won't be shocked if he never plays in the bigs after this year.
  5. We made some trades. Good. shouldn't' we see some of these guys at the bigs? especially the AAA level Rays guys we got? I get the boys we bot for Berrios are not quite there yet, but what else is this team doing? Time to throw the live arms out there and see what we got and get them a taste
  6. Larnach's strike out rate the last month is the highest in MLB. Makes Sano blush, hope he figures it out
  7. I'm glad Josh is heating up. Few players can get as hot as him. Wish he would shut his mouth when his team cannot win a game against good teams. Again happy he is hot, trade value goes up. Seems like a "me" player. Yet I do not know this. Prefer not to have him on ESPN talking smack when all we do is lose.
  8. Jake Cave had similar runs to Refsnyder, let's settle down. He's a replacement player and thank goodness he is carrying us. Yes this is fun. Winning is fun. We need to win more. A lot more
  9. Ah the narrative is still the same, this is a damaged bad team, just won another game. They will win more. Josh another error? We have a long ways to go kids.
  10. I agree this seems like a win, and it's just treading water. Sano will be hot for another game or two until teams realize he still can't hit a well placed fastball He will never get above .220. Will hit 20 bombs, but we will see how empty they are.. The key, if our top 3 can somehow pitch consistently, will be we may work our way to .500 by the end of the year. BTW all the fluff pieces on how good we are defensively are silly. We are terrible I'm talking to you Josh. Far from excellent as advertised No longer dvring every game, just catching it is on....sad
  11. Tough to comment, after a win. But...Rangers are bad. Duffey not the same. Rogers not the same since 2018. Holding out for Alcala, well he's way too inconsistent. Even with the emphasis on defense this year, it has been nothing short of terrible. Kirilloff does not inspire at first, but at least he's hitting. A win is a win, but this is not how we drew this up. Win Twins
  12. Yes, plate appearances make this conversation moot. He's been in the bigs now in his 7th year? It's not a crime to miss games in a 162 game season, so I can hope he plays 135 games (which he has done once), but SI's hot take is outrageously premature. Let's have this post again at the end of June if he's healthy and raking.
  13. Wish they had one more option, so neither would start against left handed pitching....
