  1. The FCL Twins played a double header, with game 1 a completion of previously suspended game. Game 2 featured some notable performances: 3rd Rd pick Cade Povich pitched two scoreless innings in his pro debut. He gave up one hit and struck out three. 13th Rd pick David Fiesta also debuted with two scoreless innings also giving up one hit. He struck out two. Competitive Balance Pick Noah Miller went 2 for 4 with an inside the park home run. He scored two runs and drove in two and raised his average to .300. Undrafted signee Malik Barrington made his third appearance and surrendered his first run in pro ball. He pitched 2 innings with 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run. 5 of 6 outs were via strikeout. He's got a pretty impressive first 8 innings pitched in pro ball. Emmanuel Rodriguez also homered, going 1 for 3 with a walk. https://www.milb.com/gameday/fcl-twins-vs-fcl-red-sox/2021/08/27/657521#game_state=final,game_tab=box,game=657521
  2. The pitches / strikes for the rookie leagues are often inaccurate. This is not the first time a pitcher has been shown to have thrown only strikes. I did notice though that Rodriguez has only given up 2 runs this season. Both those runs (and 2 of his 6 walks) came in the first inning of his debut. He's now thrown 20 straight scoreless innings.
  3. He hasn't pitched for the Twins org in awhile, because he's been participating in the Pan Am games earning a silver medal with Canada.
  4. Adriana strikes out against Chris Davis, homers off of Justin Verlander. Baseball! P.S. Thank you Ehire for saving it for when it was needed.
  5. If its sunny, you're not in Philly today. Rain this morning. Overcast all day. Rain this evening. Good chance its going to be a double header tomorrow. If they play tonight its going to be a cold and damp one.
  6. Looks like they then traded Moore to Baltimore for international pool money. Saw it on mlbtraderumors. Tweeted by Betsy Helfand. 750k. Too lazy to copy link.
  7. We don't know what each teams board looks like though, so it's a bit tough to say it's group think. For all we know, the Twins had Jay at number 3 on their board and Buehler at like number 5. Maybe they had Gibson 10th and Trout 11th. Yes they were still wrong but they might have actually had Buehler and Trout rated quite highly. The Twins draft history that's been discussed shows terrible results, so I'm not trying to argue in their favor, but not being able to see the draft board adds some level of nuance to the evaluation and finding those "missing links" is undoubtedly quite difficult as you're projecting guys 5 years into the future.
  8. They have Michael Davis listed as a catcher. Are the Twins looking to move him there?
  9. Please forgive me if I'm wrong but haven't you said that the Twins should have tried harder to make the playoffs because anything can happen then. But somehow a Cleveland team that was 7 games better than the Twins around the deadline has no chance in the playoffs? I get that you wanted to see the team play meaningful games in September. We all did. Some people think the FO was right to pivot when things looked bleak. Some people wanted them to keep fighting and hoped things would turn around.
  10. Rooker probably should be. I don't have a problem with Kirilloff staying with the Miracle since they are competing for a playoff spot.
  11. Nice. Also saw a Nate Rowan tweet that Buxton is returning from the DL for Rochester. @njrowan (Sorry I don't know how to post the tweet.)
