    Alex Schieferdecker got a reaction from Jerr in What’s Next for Twins Manager Rocco Baldelli?   
    Plenty of people have Baldelli Derangement Syndrome and they're getting out of control.
    Unless there's something behind the scenes that we don't know about, there is zero chance that he does not return next year. He's a good manager in a sport where the manager does not really impact winning in a major way.

    Hmm, maybe it was a good idea to not have Joe Ryan throw 140 pitches in his last outing... hmm...

    I dunno, but I'd still probably rather see him hitting tonight instead of whoever it is we throw out there.

    Brooks Lee is obviously going to Wichita next spring. I think the Twins were smart to start him lower down, instead of doing the thing the Jays did with Austin Martin, where moving him directly to AA seemed to be a bit too aggressive and possibly even set him back.
    But for Lee, it's clear where he belongs now. He's gotten his feet wet, now it's time to really dive in.

    Look at that gorgeous bullpen chart. Sonny Gray has flown a bit under the radar for the Twins this year, but he really has been a brilliant pickup.
    The Royals are just unbelievably bad. I may think it's embarrassing to have Gio Urshela hitting fourth, when on a healthy team he would be seventh or lower, but if he played for the Royals he would be their second or third best hitter. With Bundy going tomorrow maybe we won't shut them out again, but we certainly should take another comfortable win.
    Hopefully the White Sox beat Cleveland in eighteen innings this afternoon and Karinchak gets put on the IL after he accidentally glues his hand to a post.

    Not having watched him pitch, SWR's lack of strikeouts feels concerning. Should I actually be worried, or is he just very very good at getting soft contact?

    Alex Schieferdecker got a reaction from Nine of twelve in Twins 6, Royals 3: Twins Lose No-Hitter in Ninth Inning   
    Rocco Baldelli made a move that improved the Twins chances of beating Cleveland next series and people are mad at him, which just tells you that there's nothing rational behind it.
    People have memed themselves into believing this "spreadsheet" thing as if Rocco made some kind of weird decision that no other manager in the league would've made. In fact, the opposite is true. Even TLR would've pulled Ryan there. I heard the same "spreadsheet" nonsense lobbed at Gabe Kapler when he was managing the Phillies and for a significant section of the fanbase he couldn't do a single thing right. So the Phillies fired him and hired Joe Girardi, a pure old school guy. What happened next? Kapler took a San Francisco Giants team built with balsa wood and bubble gum to a 100+ win season while the Phillies had basically an identical record with Girardi and had to fire him this year.
    One more point: leaving Moran out there for the ninth was also smart. Who cares about the runs he gave up? The Twins had five runs to give. They are just starting a stretch of eight games in a week, and they need to go all out to win every single one of them. Having rested starters and relievers is critical.

    No one wants to derail the next Kerry Wood, you know? Wood cleared 120 pitches 8 times in his rookie season (including 133 in his 2nd to last start of the season, a 9-2 win)...and then missed all of 1999. In 2003, he threw 120 or more in 5 of his last 6 starts (#6 he still went 114) and there's a pretty good argument that he was never the same. (2004 he started battling injuries and only made 22 starts, followed by 10 the next season, and 4 the year after that) Wood never started a Major League game in his 30's.
    Mark Prior is another one that you have to consider. (Dusty Baker really ground those guys up) His last 5 starts in 2003 (at age 22), when they were closing on the division title he threw 120 or more in 5 of his last 6 starts in Sept, including clearing 130 three times. (and then threw 130+ in his first playoff start, followed by chucking 116 in a blowout win for the next one). Battled injuries in 2004 (down to 21 starts), got it back a bit in 2005, was injured and bad in 2006 and never pitched again. 2006 was his age-25 season. 
    How many do you need to have to stop doing this?
