Donaldson and Buxton need to stay healthy.
I'm guessing there will be some major movement. Sano has not developed at all. Kepler and Polanco have fallen back to very average players. Rosario and Romo probably gone.

Buston picked off. We suck. Someone needs to be fired. I don’t care who, but they pack their shit before they leave today. Send a message.

It's 2 games.

Send a message. We need to be better.

3rd base coach and hitting coach are 2 prime candidates.

Or the guy who's supposed to keep Donaldson's calf healthy. How is that a chronic problem?

I don't like Baldelli much but with his regular season success I give him one more shot.

Cruz delivers

Arraez out at home

Nice going Diaz


Arraez is fat and slow.

Diaz has made a number of bad decisions as third base coach.

Kepler's at bat was consistent with a team playing to not lose instead of playing to win.

I would instruct Arraez to drop some weight and get a running coach if he wants to play next year. Right now is only real + is a great eye at the plate and the ability to make contact. I like him, but that isn't enough.

Bad decision to send him, maybe even worse base running by Arraez.

Two outs you send him.


Have to know your personnel better than that.

Agree.

Didn't see it, but I tend to agree with this philosophy in the playoffs, especially if it's to take the lead.

He had no shot. It was an awful throw up the 1st base line and the catcher had time to catch and reach back to get Arraez who had no shot at the plate. A good throw gets him by 10 ft.

I'm hoping not. Enjoy 5 innings per outing at 15 mill elsewhere.

I owe everything to Minneapolis and I wouldn’t trade my time here for anything.

Sounds like someone ready to move on

Romo's 3-2 pitch to Altuve that made it a 2-1 game was right down the middle and appeared to be about waste high. With the bases loaded and 2 out, the umpire just couldn't ring up the former MVP.


Waist high to Aaron Judge maybe...

It wasn't close.



it was between waist and chest.
Could have easily been called a strike.








Is that not waist and chest....he’s crouching.

Please someone explain it if I’m wrong.

And forget that white box.
That white box is for Mable in Maple Grove.
Baseball men like me know the strike zone as knees to chest.
He can crouch all he wants.
Knee to where chest would be.

Never said it was a strike.
Said it was between waist and chest.
Could have easily been called a strike.

I stand by that.

Correa hit a two-out, go-ahead solo home run in the seventh inning of the Astros' eventual 3-1 win. It was the Twins' 18th straight postseason loss, a North American professional sports record.

"I know a lot of people are mad. I know a lot of people don't want to see us here. But what are they gonna say now?" Correa said after the victory. "We're a solid team. We played great baseball. We won a series, on the road, in Minnesota. So what are you gonna say now?"


You're still a bunch of cheaters. Wear it. You eliminated a team that chokes in the postseason. Puff your chest out more you stud.

If you watched the game, the guy had a small strike zone all day long. No way you were going to get that pitch called a strike. It's not what you think is a strike. It's what he thinks is a strike.

Perhaps more importantly, as a baseball fan, I'd still like to know why the manager pulled the first reliever in game one. The guy looked unhittable. It's the playoffs. You roll with the hot hand. Rocco got his lunch handed to him by one of the greatest managers in baseball. Managing in the playoffs is not like managing in the regular season. It is very hard to get four different pitchers to be on their game on the same day. What are you saving them for?

And by the way, when facing good pitching in the playoffs, you may want to sneak more than one guy into the lineup hitting above .240. A touch of small ball can go a long ways. One guy in the lineup struck out in nearly 50% of his at-bats this season. Don't get me wrong, he may be the most dangerous .204 hitter the game has ever seen. But this is the playoffs and good pitching. Way too many free swingers on this club.

Bingo

You proved nothing this year, other than YOU CHEATED to win a WS
Look at your numbers pal
Look at your teammates numbers
12 guys don't go from career years to a team struggling under-.500 in a year
Half a dozen .300+ hitters with power suddenly limped in this year at .225 with Mauer Power numbers.
YOU ARE A CHEATER
That's what we are saying.
Move on and get your ass kicked, pal.
Hell, Altuve can't even lift his eyes up to talk to people, to this day.
Take your garbage cans and your titty buzzers and go celebrate the most tainted title in sports history.

Quite the defiantly arrogant bunch. Most unlikable players in baseball.

Altuve lives with the shame. A couple of them could use some of the humility.
