The New York Mets announced that they have told C Johnny Monell, 2B Dilson Herrera, RHP Tim Stauffer, LHP Dario Alvarez, and LHP Eric O’Flaherty that they will not be on the postseason roster. While none of these cuts are hardly unexpected, there was a slim chance that Alvarez might initially make the team, but […]

Gut Reaction: Mets 10, Braves 7 (10 innings) 9/13/15

Something different with the Gut Reaction today. This is what I had written in the 8th inning. The Mets’ six-game winning streak came to a halt with a 7-4 loss to the Braves Sunday afternoon. The loss prevented a four-game sweep, something the Mets have never done in Atlanta. The Mets were done in by some poor defense. Juan Uribe failed to turn a DP, which led to one run for...

Here’s some stuff I read this week that you might enjoy: Home Run Trajectories and Pitchers (Beyond the Box Score) – John Choiniere wonders whether a pitcher could, in theory, snare a line drive that otherwise would end up a home run. This might be the most fun you’ll ever have with physics. [h/t Baseball Prospectus] In Iowa, good luck trying to watch the Twins (or five other...

Stauffer Slipping From Twins 5th Starter Race

Veteran right-handed pitcher Tim Stauffer was a long shot to win the job as Minnesota Twins fifth starter heading into camp, but his chances at getting the position have probably disappeared after another rough outing in the team’s 5-3 win over the Blue Jays this afternoon. Stauffer entered in relief of Kyle Gibson, who allowed one run over three innings, and proceeded to allow...

Minnesota Twins and Roster Change from Last Year

With the Gopher basketball season now essentially over and spring training getting started, I have begun starting to kind of think about baseball.  Usually when I think about baseball I think about the Twins, unfortunate as that is.  So to start, I'll take a look at the roster changes vs. last year, which you should have probably guessed because of the title of this post.ADDITIONS...

Twins Offseason: So Far, So Meh

It’s getting harder and harder as a baseball fan in Minnesota to be excited about the game. The Twins needed to make some drastic moves, and they didn’t make any. They hired the safe, fan-friendly Paul Molitor to be their manager. They topped it off by bringing back or promoting almost every position of his coaching staff from within the organization, which does not give me a...

Game 57: Pirates 10 Padres 3

Here’s what I can tell you about last night’s torturously long, blearily late Pirates/Padres game: every time I woke up and found the game still on, the Pirates had the bases loaded. The Pirates loaded the bases in the third, fourth, sixth, and seventh innings last night, though they didn’t actually get any damage done with the bases loaded until the seventh inning. Pretty...

Week 9 Recap: Padres pitch poorly and carry a big stick
