Recently, reporters questioned Rocco's decision to pull starter Devin Smeltzer after 80 pitches and 7 innings of scoreless baseball. Despite the success over the first 2 months of the season, that response is worrisome for his long-term outlook for the Minnesota Twins and just confirms what the Rocco doubters have been saying since 2019.

Every game is different and adjustments and decisions should always be changing from inning to inning ....

 the FO and Rocco's plan is not managing the game  ,,,  continuous change in batting orders are ridiculous  .... the plan is totally ridiculous , their comments to the fans  are unbelievable and BS ....

I feel like you contradict yourself a bit here when you say "every game is different..." and then complain about the changing batting orders. I personally have no issue with how he rotates players in and out and around the batting order. It makes sense to me to have Garlick in the lineup when there is a lefty on the hill...he's damn near a hall-of-fame hitter against lefties. I do think that sometimes Baldelli and Co are more focused on the "long term plan" than ever prioritizing winning any single game. How they handled Winder and Lewis are prime examples of that IMO.
