Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Kind of an odd decision to throw the guy out there less than 24 hours after he found out he was being traded. I gotta think he was just a hair over-hyper to try to impress his new team. Especially since he's probably been with the team for about 4 hours. After the second batter reached, they showed...

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Sources are saying the Twins are interested in Noah Syndergaard and have contacted the Mets. They are also saying the Mets are asking for Kiriloff and Royce Lewis. Yeesh. Yeah. I don't like that. I'd give them Wander Javier and Luke Raley in a minute but they would be nuts to consider giving up the...

Took the family to the game today on the Northstar light rail. Since the middle innings moved at a snail's pace, we had to leave in the top of the 8th to catch the train back home. Good news: we missed Trevor May's meltdown, Bad news: we missed the 9th inning comeback.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

. Not getting his hands to the launch point until the ball is already on the way to the plate means he has to decide to swing earlier. ....So basically his swing takes too long. Got it. Call it whatever you want. Until Sano fixes this issue, he's gonna struggle mightily against guys with power arms.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Sano should try some analytics like swinging with a batting donut so he can catch up to fastballs. Three strikeouts and counting tonight. 27 in his last 55 at-bats. Didn't seem to have a problem catching up to that 97mph fastball off the plate 🙄 Even a blind pig can find a cob of corn once in a whi...

Today also not a good start for sano. Here’s hoping he picks it up https://twitter.com/TwinsGeek/status/1141194975381794818?s=19 Found this tweet interesting after reading some of the comments on this thread and on Facebook/Twitter yesterday. The "last 7 days" stats don't include yesterday's game b...

Seriously, Sano?
You can't teach bat speed and Sano doesn't have it.

Once again Sano has no chance against a 97 mph fastball.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

It is always so cute to see fans (not here but on Twitter) who act like the Twins didnt make a move to try and get the two FAs. All indications were they were doing what they could but the pitchers wanted quite a bit. I would have loved if they signed them but I am not under the delusion that the t...
