  1. I'm down with this except...What if (and I don't think it's in his nature as an alpha competitor) he begins to pull up on shallow flies, balls to the wall (not a euphemism), or reduces his number of steal attempts to stay safe? Pay him top dollar and let Buxton do what Buxton does without concern. I believe he has had bad injury luck. I don't think he's a fragile commodity. The bad luck injuries have happened. Let's go forward
  2. Thanks for these Nick, as mentioned above, they're good snapshots of the team in a season which work/life/bad team had me watching a lot less. Color me weird, but I'm optimistic about next BEFORE any Hotstove moves have happened. I believe we will get expensive starting pitching help. I believe in our bullpen albeit a piece or 2. I'm happy with our position players if Kepler can get on track and we get a SS. Luckily our holes to fill (top of line SP, Shutdown Closer, and SS are easy to fill....Go Twins)
  3. This is absurd going in to next season with Dobnak, Gant, Albers, Ober, and Barnes as part of your 2022 starting staff. No thank you. I appreciate your effort, but I would like to win. Our offense is going to be depleted next year. Our pitching needs to step it up. That list of dudes is not inspiring.. FO do something.
  4. Jorge was going home from first the second the ball was struck. Love it.
  5. Uggh. This makes me so optimistic for next year with nothing concrete to point to. I do think we did really well with our trades, but we need to start producing something more than corner outfield lefty hitters. There are a lot more player types, and we need a few of them. As mentioned above, Kepler's energy was a good sign coupled with Polanco having another good day
  6. I know it's 4 plus months into the season. Did we rely to heavily on a 'shake the dice' bullpen for too long? I feel if we brought in 2 or 3 relievers a game we might be better served than the 3-5 we trot out every game. I don't have the time time or knowledge to go to sites to serve this out, but I'm amazed how much we use our shaky bullpen out of the gate. I can't find the numbers I want to prove this theory because I'm not smart. Thoughts? Aside from I'm dumb and can't use Google properly.
  7. Excellent points, Jorgenswest. ALL High School draft picks are crap shoots, but picking kids with great natural talent and flexibility make for good choices. I like Petty's effortless motion. Always have to hold breath on hard throwers' arm issues, but he looks good. Cue Tom Petty's 'The Waiting'
  8. Sano giveth, Sano taketh. Colome needs to be dfa'd. Even his good games are mediocre. Appreciate the 5 wins, but boy howdy, this is an under-performing team that needs a jolt of something to show promise for 2022
  9. Sorry for dumb question that may have been answered. This is my first game watching West Coast Swing. Who is the color guy with Bremer?
  10. Was gonna watch to see Arraez and Buxton, but them not playing = me not staying up late. This team is not worth being tired the next day for. Sorry for my pathetic dedication, but jeesh....this team is not interesting enough to watch (Especially WC games) Go Twins.
  11. Lighten up. We've been to the playoffs the 2 years he's been here. Granted, we're not going this year, but I'd rather have a team that has post season potential more often than not. Baldelli deserves heat, but he should not be fired for what a mess the bullpen has been and the injuries that are head shaking and the aging of Donaldson and Cruz and the lack of pitch recognition of Sano and the number of rookies forced into playing ahead of schedule and having played 7DIFFERENT guys in CF (has to be a record 65 games into a season) Baldelli is doing the best he can with the cards he's dealt. Has he made some bad decisions? Yes. Calling for his head the first year we finish below .500 is a bit knee jerky. And not to be to 'homery' we'll clear .500. Or lose 110
  12. I was at the Twins@Cubs game a couple of years ago where Rosario and Kepler I believe were removed from game for heat exhaustion. I also made a bad decision. Sitting on rooftop (all you can drink) and realized two hours after game sitting in bar that I had not gone the bathroom in 6 plus hours. Knew that could not be good
