Should do Tommy John on Lewis while they are at it. Seems to happen to all the Twins.




whoa Whoa Whoa.

We can't do that yet.. We have to wait until he is recovered from the ACL. then just before next season send him for TJ.

Ed Lynch:

“The game now is getting so heavily loaded with research and development. You got to remember you have to have boots on the ground, and I think maybe they overlook that. When you’re dealing with human beings man, you can’t go 100% science. You can’t. They’re human beings. They’re unpredictable. You can’t extrapolate their behavior and turn it into numbers. You just can’t do it.

“Numbers don’t measure what's in a guy’s soul.’’

Lynch, who last was a full-time scout for the Toronto Blue Jays, wonders what happened to the game he knew. He remembers being in the starting rotation on that awful 1983 New York Mets team, led by Tom Seaver. He remembers a 42nd-round draft pick, Keith Hernandez, being the best he ever played with.

Now, he hardly recognizes the game.

“Analytically, I don’t know where Keith Hernandez would measure now,’’ Lynch says. “Did he have launch angle? How was his exit velocity? But I’ll tell you what, that man played the game with style, and he played it to win. I don’t believe any defensive metrics because they don’t tell me about range. It takes eyeballs to measure defensive prowess, and Keith had it in spades. …

“The focus should be on winning the game, not winning statistical events. Strikeouts per nine innings. Velocity. Spin rate. It’s all ancillary. The bottom line is winning the game. I don’t care if you’re throwing just knuckleballs, just win the game.

“When I was pitching, we would rest our arms until it came game-time, and then we would abuse our arms. We did everything we could to get ready to just brutalize ourselves when the game started. If I had to throw 150 freakin’ pitches, I was going to throw 150 freakin’ pitches. The only thing that mattered to us was winning the game.

“These days, it’s all backwards.’’

The Twins don't have one of the Top 25 players under Age 25. I call BULL$HIT!

No one. No one should even be close.

Arraez and Jeffers are the only position players under 25 with more than a couple games worth of ABs.

Alcala, Smeltzer? Uh huh...

Lewis Thorpe took ownership of why his FB velo dropped to 89.7 mph last year, an issue he worked on six days a week this offseason. "I was being lazy. I wasn’t going in the weight room and doing the things I needed to be doing."

Great. A professional athlete figured out that he should get in shape.

Looks like Duffey has lost his magic. Gave up 2 HR and 3 runs in 0.2 innings.

Sano had our only XBH, a double.
