Twins ?

Recommended Posts

This, Willingham was absolutely awful in the outfield he could barely move anything was an improvement. I don't really care what the advanced stats/metrics say about Hunter or the rest of the outfielders defense just watching from last year to this year it is definitely improved. It isn't a great defensive outfield by any means but definitely an improvement from last year to this year.

I'm not a big fan of how much they use Escobar though especially in the DH spot hopefully that changes when Arcia comes back but knowing how Terry Ryan often operates he will probably send Rosario back down instead of rotating Rosario, Arcia, and Hunter through the LF,RF, and DH spots the other option would be to call Vargas back up and just let him DH everyday then it would make at least a little more sense for Rosario to go back down. There will definitely be some tough roster decisions coming up for the Twins throughout the Summer with some of the prospects hopefully pushing for MLB time and could be a bit of a logjam at some positions.

Thank you. Throw the stats out the window. The outfield has gone from down right putrid to average. Nobody is saying Hunter is a Gold Glover. What he is is an improvement from Arcia and Willingham. No brainer.

May != September

To quote the former Federal Reserve Board chair, " ... irrational exuberance ... "

After 4 years of garbage I think Twins fans have a right to be a bit giddy.

post season chances can be lost in may.

The thing the Twins bring to the table is that old fashioned twins baseball we all grew to love. They are FUN to watch again!

No kidding, I can't get there until August and it would be great if they were within striking distance yet.

Twins take the last 2 games in Boston to split the series and take the season series 5 games to 2. Mauer a robust 1-13 and is now down to .263. Ish.

Was an ugly game, but a win.  Make quick work of the Brew Crew this weekend and get ready for a big series at home vs KC early next week.

The fact that they are doing so well with Mauer playing like garbage, Santana suspended and their top prospects still to be called up makes it even more ridiculous.  Fun ride so far, that's for sure!

I've seen better defense (from both teams) in co-rec slow-pitch softball than I did in yesterday's Red Sox/Twins game. Terrible!

Wasn't much better today.

Stauffer throwing up meatballs again today. DFA he and Duensing now. Santana needs to be sent down to AAA to get his crap together. Is the June swoon here? Losing 2 to the lowly Brewers at home could kick start it.

Everyone in the Central is swooning right now, but there are some alarm bells that need to be sounding right about now.

Looks like Santana will be send down to Triple-A and Vargas is back up.  Now get rid of Stauffer and promote Meyer to take his place in the bullpen (Meyer had pitched better since he was send to the pen in Rochester).

Twins continue to come back to Earth and Hunter shows some quality maturity and "leadership" tonight.

He's the only one that appears to care that they're losing.
