    killertwinfan got a reaction from bighat in Game Recap: Royals 6, Twins 3   
    I am watching this team as much as I can with 100% detachment. I really see very little to look forward to.  It’s too bad we decided to forgo fundamentals, because I could enjoy a well played baseball game.  I fully expect them to dismantle this team and start over.  Do it right next time! BTW, those guys totally ruined Sano.   Let him hire his own batting coach and do it his own way. He is so bad nobody would even take him for free on waivers.

    Nice preparation Josh. No way you get a pass from me. You were doing a basic thing that millions of people do on a daily basis. You are a professional athlete that gets paid millions. What a joke. Work harder and smarter.

    I get the concern for his replacement but I don’t get the free pass on conditioning and preparation. Josh had an easy double so he is at cruise speed, not at I’m being chased by a bear and need to fly speed. How about being in better condition and warmed up properly to survive that circumstance. He needs to be prepared and he wasn’t.

    Piling on bad pitching does not equate to our offense "taking off" for me.  At one point in the first game we were 1-7 with RISP and looked as though we were going to give away the first game to a team that is worse than the Blue Jays.  I enjoyed the games, I am happy with the outcome, but I am not satisfied with the FO's effort to secure the opportunity that sits right in front of us. We deserve better. The team is spending below budget after their promise to do otherwise when we built them a stadium.  Not cool!

    I think Romero will be good. He just needs to get the reliever mindset before he comes back up.

    I am not sure what Dilly Dilly was thinking or what metrics drove the decision to put Vasquez in that situation.  On top of that, I thought there were signs that Odorizzi was unraveling in the 4th. The decision to let him pitch to the pitcher was a huge mistake. You needed that out.  What, because it is not the 7th it isn't a high leverage situation?  Bad read, bad metrics or whatever. You gave the game away.

    I think Twins are trying to get Romaro used to his new role.  Think he will be here soon enough.  More worried about Perez and the other starters.  Seem to have 14 outities..

    I was not thrilled to see Vasquez walk to the mound in that situation. I just had this very bad feeling that he wasn't going to be able to throw strikes--sadly, I was correct. (Why not May or Hildenberger from the start?)

    I am trying to understand how you do not play this guy.  He is not great at any field position or on the base paths but man, can he hit!  Unless he starts booting balls he needs to play every day.

    From Royals Review blog
     
    It’s hard to find a team more plain, uninteresting, and irrelevant as the Minnesota Twins. You know when you’re trying to name all 30 baseball teams and you’re stuck on 29? That team you can’t remember is the Twins. Bloop hits? That’s so Twins. Changing from one right-handed reliever to another right-handed reliever with two outs and nobody on in the ninth? That’s pretty, pretty Twins. They’re 4-1 on the season, but nobody actually remembers anything they’ve done thus far. So there’s that.
     
    When did Royals' fans get so 'uppity'  I hope when we win our third World Series we don't become this
