Even though Revere got 2 hits a SB and an RBI Gardy is mad at him for getting picked off..How about say to the Kid, hey good job getting 2 hits a SB and RBI but we need to make sure we don't get picked off on that play. Instead of focusing on the negetive especially when he had a pretty good game otherwise

I see the Twins' defense is already rounding into midseason form. And is it too early to come down with a case of "Changsanity?"

Definitely not too early for "Changsanity." We haven't had a guy that can field like that and not too many guys make that play. Why the heck is Gardy even fooling around with Nish and his terribleness? Let's just cut our losses with him and go with Chang. The guy is smooth.

Chang was kneed in the jaw?? Good thing the knee didn't hit him in the helmet ... he would be messing with that for a couple years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry. I know its only two games into spring training, but Nishioka's fielding isn't good enough for our MLB Club. Maybe TR is going to have to explore the market and make a trade for a utility infielder that can play shortstop.

Better nip this crap in the bud, and do it right now, or it will persist into the regular season. What does it take to get them to understand this isn't Major-League caliber play, and that is the level expected of them? If they can't or won't do it, then do something about it other than pay lip service to the fact that they need to get better. Drill their butts off until they either get it, or prove they can't - and find somebody who does.

PLEASE REMIND GARDY THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT NISH DID LAST YEAR. QUESS WHAT, IF HE IS STILL WITH THE TEAM THIS YEAR, EXPECT THE SAME. REMEMBER, IT IS CALLED INSANITY. THE TWO MIDDLE INFIELDERS HAVE TO BE GREAT DEFENSIVELY FOR THE TWINS TO WIN. THEY HAD A GREAT RECORD DESPITE NOT SCORING RUNS LAST YEAR WHEN CASILLA AND TOLBERT PLAYED TOGETHER. FORGET CARROL, FORGET NISH, PLAY CASILLA AT SS AND ANOTHER SOLID FIELDER AT 2ND AND WE WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH BETTER THE PITCHERS LOOK.

Defense isn't going to win games for this team. The offense if far too pathetic. They can play errorless baseball all season and STILL probably not be a .500 club.
