Well, wouldn't have worked anyways. It was a nice gesture, though.

The one thing that stood out the most to me after watching yesterday's ASG was that EVERY pitcher was consistently pitching in the 90s with serious heat.

Do even one of our starters pitch consistently in the 90s? I don't think so. Maybe Gibson, but who knows how good he will be.

That's why we didn't have any starters in the ASG and why the team has been so terrible for so many years.

Mauer started and caught almost the entire game.

From what I've heard, it's pretty solid.

Truth be told I heard he was a MEAN pitcher at CDH.

But Jarick, while I know you were referring to starting pitcher(s), I didn't address it because there were only two starting pitchers in the game, technically speaking. Sure probably a half dozen (or more) could have been the starter, no, we have absolutely no pitcher that could have started that game.


It was a bit depressing seeing all the ex-Twins playing in the ASG though. SO many. Imagine if we still had Cuddy, Gomez, Hardy, Hunter, Ortiz, Nathan still in our lineup. Shame.

One of my cousin's played with Perkins at Stillwater and against Joe Mauer. He raved about Joe before he was drafted. Kid played everywhere. Struck out once, everybody was quiet. Pretty good pitcher.

Well I remember he could play anywhere (obviously he's top 5 catchers in the history of the game) and I remember hearing about him being a very good pitcher at CDH as well. I also remember hearing about him only striking out once at CDH.

What I meant was we had no starters who could pitch in that game PERIOD. Hopefully Gibby in a few years...along with maybe Meyer...

From what I read and listen, perhaps a low-tier #2, top tier #3 in a good rotation.

Starting to look at some fantasy football stuff. Ponder was last out of 39 QBs (with at least 100 passes) in Depth of Throw. It wouldn't be so terrible, but hes last by almost an ENTIRE yard.

Pirates will most definitely be looking for a reliever after Grilli left the game and was placed on the DL. I am hoping they will give us an offer that we can't refuse for Perkins. They will certainly be desperate to not pull a "Pirates" again and miss the playoffs.

Twins need a coach from Latin America

Interesting take.

A coach from Latin America would stop these guys from being discipline problems? I doubt that.

I don't know enough about baseball, but it would seem to me if 1/3 to 1/2 of your team was from Latin America, you might want at least an assistant who speaks Spanish and can act as a buffer or help relate.

According to the article, they have assistants that speak Spanish and that isn't enough. Maybe a Latin American coach can help them relate better, but I don't think it is going to stop them from being a problem child.
