Nice first outing by Romo for the Twins! Against his former team, no less.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Paul Fenton gone after one season. Wow. Whoa. Not sure if it is him being honest to his boss that it was going to require more than a mere tweak, or if he had a falling out with Suter who has the ear of Liepold. Sure, his trades didn't work out altogether, but the Donato one is way too early to tel...

His 18 HRs so far this year are good for 13th of all 3B in baseball. Every single player on the list ahead if him has, at minimum, 140 more at bats than him. His .905 OPS is good for 5th best among all 3B. His slugging percentage is good for 2nd among all 3B. And despite, as mentioned earlier, missi...

Re: MLB News

It's 9-1. Swing the bat. Really? That wasn't even close. Anne Frank isn't even that blind. Wait...huh? Yeah. Is the worst part of that comment “blind?” Or “isn’t?” Knowing tRube I'm assuming this is a reference to a movie. Probably Clerks or something like that. I've never seen it so I can't say fo...

Re: MLB News

I'll preface this by saying this: Angel Hernandez is an absolutely atrocious umpire and (I have no facts to back this up but it's a gut feeling) probably the umpire all the "Robot umps!!!" crowd points to as the reason that robot umps are a must. The fact that he still has a job as a major league um...

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

Cleveland lost. Lead back to two. There's going to be a lot of this. Cleveland has a murderer's row of teams on the schedule for the next month or so. I'd expect to see them be .500 over the next 20ish games. If the Twins handle their business the lead should be 6-7 games again by this time next mo...

Re: MLB News

Mets trade for the other big-name SP that was trade bait.

So now they have both major SP that teams will be trying to acquire.

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

So the Twins send Lewin Diaz (ranked between 25-30, depending on which report you read, in the Twins farm system) to Miami for Romo, minor league pitcher Chris Vallimont (#22-25 in the Marlins system) and a PTBNL (or cash). Vallimont has 142 Ks in 134 innings pitched as a pro. Sits 92-96mph with a m...

https://twitter.com/JeffPassan/status/1155272313333587968?s=19 I like this move. He's a tough guy to square up (one of the best pitchers in baseball in "hard hit percentage" this season -- I think I read top 2% in the league). He had a terrible month of April and has been a stud since. And he likely...
