All the relievers who were available this winter ....and never moved on any of them

I don't think we will stand pat. We could easily have 3 different relievers on team by end of April.

Starters is a different story. Can we find another dependable starter?



Nobody from AAA. That gas house gang coughed up 9 HRs yesterday.

Moya for bullpen.

What's up with Kohl Stewart?


Moya is working on rehab, not on assignment yet.

Stewart 7.2IP in 2 starts 10H/9 runs, TWO EARNED 11 strikeouts

Rochester sucks.

He(Stewart) can't be worse than Odorizzi.



Right. But Odor is a vet they're hanging onto , for reasons I have yet to figure out.

Nice win today, but the pen is very shakey as we all anticipated. Hildy has been money which is surprising and probably won't last. The lineup is ready for the playoffs, pitching is very questionable. Hopefully the new pitching coach can work miracles, if he can we'll be in the playoffs. If he can't the front office will need to work miracles or we'll maybe be a .500 team, with an entertaining offense.

Yep. I love this lineup. It can be as good as any in baseball. But the pitching staff was just thrown together on a wing and a prayer.

Jeff A. says he is a #5 starter. I don't think he is even that level. He is a 4 inning pitcher. Odious can basically get you 2 trips through a lineup.

He showed a lot of promise in his first start and his 2nd was the downpour....

One thing I like about Rocco......he isn't married to a closer and will sink or swim with one guy.

I hope he stays with that approach. If a guy comes in the ninth and isn't doing the job, go to someone else.

I hated Hildy last season.......he has been very good thus far. Will it last? I hope so.

Even though Odor and Perez at 4 and 5 can be improved on I remember the 3 5th day starters we used to have after Erv and Berrios....

Pineda, Berrios, and Gibson make a decent top 3.

Gotta hand it to Tampa

When they dump starters, or let them walk, they know what they have left.


And Gibson isn't a 3. Not even close.

E-Coli or not. It's the same stuff EVERY year. Struggles to make the pitch to end an inning.

Half-way between 3rd base and the LF wall?

Current #MNTwins ranks

BA: 3rd
OBP: 7th
SLG: 3rd
wOBA: 4th
wRC+: 4th

And I'm still seeing some people complain about the manager's lack of sac bunts/small ball.

And, oh by the way, the #MNTwins also have the fourth-lowest K% at 19.5. That's over two percent lower than their 2018 K%.

I was on the (sparsely populated, shady) 1st base side. Berrios pitching, Beckham batting. It was the at bat he hit the home run.

I've only come close a couple times.
Almost got killed by Frank Thomas once, but that's another story.

This was my second one. I got hit by one when I was 10. It bounced away from me and a guy grabbed it. Then felt sorry for me and gave it to me. Sucker.

This one was a very high popup. hit almost right to me. I reached for it, then at the last second was like "Nah this is going to hurt like hell." So I let it drop next to me. Luckily it didn't take a crazy bounce. Just rattled around by my feet and there was nobody else around.

That's one of the things I love about Rocco. His absolute disdain for the sack bunt. The idiots complaining about it don't get that they make it less likely you will score.

I look at the best teams and some are recycling too(until the trade deadline or a minor guy impresses). I am not saying they couldn't upgrade the rotation and bullpen---just saying we have had worse ....

1-2 -- Berrios
3 -- Pineda
4 -- Gibson
5 -- Odorizzi

16 -- M.Perez

We could definitely use an ACE on this team. If we are playing .600 ball in June they should be on the lookout to acquire someone.

Need another arm in the pen too...

We're close to finally being a REAL team.

Nope. Not an error if you don't touch it.
