    AceWrigley got a reaction from cHawk in Baldelli: Pros/Cons and what I think about his future with the Twins   
    Rocco with Byron Buxton in the lineup . . . brilliant manager. Rocco with Jake Cave in cf . . . not so much. 🙂

    Was reading the words of Solomon this morning, the end of Ecclesiastes Chapter 5: "Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life."
    So on Thanksgiving, eat, drink and be merry, enjoy those who are around you and give thanks.
    Thanks to everybody here for a great forum for all things Twins. You know, God foretold us about baseball in the Bible. It all starts with, " In the big inning . . . " ( you have to say it, not read it). Have a great Thanksgiving everybody. 🙂

    AceWrigley reacted to Seth Stohs in Matt Wallner hit by pitch   
    Just heard from Wallner. He got a couple of stitches, but said he's "good to go." That's certainly encouraging. Anytime you hear about a guy getting hit near the head, it's scary.

    Good work. Another thing to consider is league batting averages have declined significantly too.  JD's line drive rate was down and flyball rate up. Still, an OPS+ of 127 was higher than Polanco (125) even.
    JD at 3B-DH for the Twins next year is not a problem that needs fixing.

    AceWrigley reacted to saviking in Did Nick Gordon Do Enough?   
    I was very impressed with Gordon. If he can't make our lineup next year it means we are going to have one hell of a team. I say Gordon sticks around for a few years ..

    AceWrigley reacted to DocBauer in Did Nick Gordon Do Enough?   
    To answer the question posed in the headline, he did as much as he could with what he was given. 
    Despite impressively transitioning to the OF/CF on the fly, he was still used a bit inconsistently in a losing year. There were absolutely additional opportunities to play he could have been given.
    His offense wasn't great, but was solid enough for a utility type. He showed a little pop and no question the speed he displayed is very welcome. 
    He's always been know for building on his previous experience at a repeat of a level. That should hopefully be the situation here. Additionally, what would a good, healthy 10-15 pounds do for this kid? Sure hope to find out.
