Our reward for the Wolves choking. Completely brain-dead by Sano and it works out somehow. Despite his one hit, get him off the roster for a bit please. Surely he pulled something running the bases there.Sano not knowing how to run bases scrambled all the Detroit players brains.
It's just nice to watch other teams piss down their leg every once and a while because sometimes I think I'm the only fan in the world that has to deal with it.Last night's win combined with the win vs. the White Sox over the weekend, where Tim Anderson threw the ball away (and if I'm correct, set in motion this winning streak). . .I'm not going to get ahead of myself, but these types of wins, particularly with not all the bats functioning as we anticipate they will and with the bullpen not settled yet. . .it's just an interesting sprinkling of magic early in the season. I'm not going to get ahead of myself. I promise. But it's interesting.
At one point and time they were the future and Buck was the overall #3 prospect and Miggy #5 in MLB - Miggy’s first three years backed it up, finishing 3 in ROY voting, being an All-Star and his appearance in the HR Derby- he signed the big extension and got fat and happy and literally almost ate himself out of the league. Many highly touted prospects never achieve what he has has already - baseball and the Twins are littered with them.If only he put the ball in play more often we would really have something. He is what he is and they ain’t gonna trade him. He also is not the reason the team is losing, but when Buxton and Sano were sold as the future the “fans” get upset.

I was just reading a little snippet on cbs sportsline about Milwaukee's pitcher Ben Lauer, who they acquired in a trade a couple years ago with San Diego, worked through a few mechanical adjustments, had a really solid season last year and has been a stud this season.
I say all this with the hopes that a similar trajectory occurs with Paddack. It'd be quite nice to have a 26 year old stud at the front of the rotation secured for the next three seasons.
I did see that his whiff rate is 11% this year which is year low. It does make you wonder is getting slightly more “on top of the ball” would make the long fly balls turn in doubles or is it simply just crap weather and the ball will start flying in June, July, and august.His strikeout rate is down and his walk rate is up.
With his exit velocity, he figures to be the unluckiest hitter in MLB.
