“Suspect” or similar description of the Twins Left Handed hitting capabilities and how Kepler needs to help bail us out from that side of the plate, seems to be a misrepresentation.   

Kiriloff, if healthy, Polanco, Larnach, Gordon, Gallo………with Julien & Lee & Walner coming doesn’t suggest a void from left side………I do agree that Kepler could be a swing player in ‘22!!

Lopez was disappointing & his history isn’t encouraging. Like Kepler, has talent, but only shown it in brief windows. Really, López has been relatively unimpressive for years other than ‘22 April - June. Minnesota beat him twice last year in July before trading for him. Good Stuff - hoping for better fastball command and better use of his head!

Mahle has the pitches! I live in Cincinnati and the ballpark here being an excuse for giving up too many HR’s is an excuse. He gave up 3 dingers in his first game in Minneapolis. He gave up 2 in a row the other day in Spring Training. He’s terrible at staying ahead and pitching to contact to get guys out - throws too many pitches after ahead, trying to nibble. Walks guys - pitch count gets elevated early - gets complacent and grooves fastballs that leave the yard…….hope he gets coached up with the Twins!! Great upside!
