Twins bullpen

56 posts in this topic

I'm sick to my stomach after watching tonight's blowup. I just don't see how we're going to win the Central with a bullpen like this. The only solid piece we have is Joe Nathan. Who else is there to rely on? Should we call up Korecky? I thought we could rely on Breslow somewhat, but even he couldn't get an out tonight!

We need to be winning these games against the worst teams in the league!!! Especially when Chicago is idle!

Why is it when the Twins play teams that are horrible they play down to their level?? Very bad game last night.

Another crack decision by the skipper to leave Perkins in too long.

Isn't there another thread that is about 4 pages long complaining he yanks the starters too early?

I wouldn't say we played down to their level at the plate. Our late pitching sure did though. Even perkins struggled at times too, but this is a game they really need to forget quick. Can't give up a six run lead and then have it stick in your head this late in the season. Hopefully they are fired up tonight and really run up the score.

Just one of them games that get out of hand and snowballs. Something that happens. I agree, forget it and move on..

What I couldn't believe, this morning on KFAN they were talking about the bullpen of the Twins. They said their home ERA is like 2.31 ERA and their road ERA is like 6.40. I don't know if this takes into account Nathan or it would be like 8.00 on the road. Not pretty.

When your starting staff last less than 6 innings and they all have to warm up or pitch every night, the season gets long.

How do you spell...T-I-R-E-D!!!!

I know how you feel dude, Floyd only went 4.2 last night, very frustrating, though our outcome was a little different than yours.

They had something liquid running down there legs and it wasn't pine tar or gatorade.

I would blame this one more on the hitters leaving the bases loaded several time with less the one out. Also, some shoddy fielding didn't help the bullpen out. frown

can't be losing leads when they're in a playoff race, especially to the two teams they let that happen against. hopefully they will embarrass the yankees the next 3 games.

Right now the bp other than Nathan is definitely the weak link. Reyes did well yesterday and has a good era but he typically only gets used for a couple batters. The others are very unreliable. I especially cringe when I see Crain warming up. He seems to give up key walks and/or hits much to regularly.

Sure wish they could pick up another P for the stretch run. Not sure who is out there though. Even if they picked up someone who could start and let Blackburn or Perkins be their first bp guy, it seems like it would be better than what they have going right now. Might not be a good idea, but I almost wish that if they can't get rid of Boof that they'd try using him for a couple starts just to upgrade the BP. Then again, moving one of the young guys to the BP just might cause other problems.

The reality of it all is that we fans should enjoy the stretch run this season. Not too many of us, myself included, expected they'd be in first place in mid August so this is really a bonus.

Today's paper said Baker has a mechanics problem that he can't seem to correct in game situations.

    • It was Trump who made the claim that the RNC was "crooked and rigged", and went on to get the nomination anyway. But it was the DNC and the RNC who made the 15 percent polling rule for third party candidates to enter the debates after Perot made both major party candidates look foolish in the 1992 debates. So obviously, "crooked and rigged" is only a problem for Trump when he perceives it not to be working in his favor.  
    • Yes it will, it's almost impossible to kill horseradish.
    • Haha! Can't find a loss on the schedule.
    • Lots of pressure in the Little Falls area. First time hunting in the area. Most of the "hunters" in the area seemed to subscribe to the show up right at shooting light and set up just up or down river from someone with decoys out, then call wildly and blindly while pass shooting birds. We pulled the plug on our Saturday sit only an hour in when our boat had steel shot hit it the second time.  We did enjoy ourselves though spending the rest of Saturday snooping around a hard to get to public slough. Then Sunday  we worked a 12-mile stretch of river and scouted up some new water for future hunting.  Lots of fun, can't wait to see how the rest of the season turns out. 
    • If I choose not to dig the horseradish, will it keep growing next year? 
    • That's funny, I was just looking at airplane tickets..... 
    • It could be said that Trump is actually a third party candidate, who is taking on the two establishment parties one at a time rather than both at once like Gary Johnson.      Sort of like a fight against two opponents.   Take out one first then fight the other.   Trump was pretty clearly not a part of the Republican Party establishment when he declared his candidacy.   He was opposed by all of the other candidates as well as the Party apparatus.    But now they have lost and are faced with losing their influence if they don't support the nominee.   Gary Johnson, on the other hand, chose to go the traditional third party route and take on the whole establishment at the same time, an endeavor that is doomed.  Even Ross Perot or Ralph Nader couldn't pull it off.   It was Trump who had the the insight to realize that he could inject himself into the cluster thing that was the Republican nominating process and with his money, media savvy, and recognition get the nomination.  That's how it has to be done these days.   And it may have been a unique opportunity.    Next time the Republicans will probably change their process to be rigged like the Dems did after the McGovern debacle, especially if Trump loses.    
    • that one got by me.  Missed the metasarcasm.
    • I have a couple of spots where scrapes are opened up every year by opening weekend bow in mid Sept, they aren't easy to find but they are out there.
    • I think it might would have worked better if that tree in the picture would have not fallen in front of the rub.   also I had a fair amount  of does and fawns check it and lick it.
