    Rocco is trying way too hard with these lineups. Arraez' OBP was off the charts when he was leading off, so of course lets drop him to the 9th spot and let sub .150 Polanco leadoff. Arraez is still fine but he clearly is undervalued at 9 and is the best choice to leadoff and it isn't close quite frankly.

    He's trying to play some nonsense games with the lineup, play the god damn game.

    Rocco over-managed this team to another loss in extra innings. It’s infuriating at this point.

    Buxton is the best center fielder in the league,

    Has a pitcher ever blown a save twice in a game? Can’t be many. Colome seems like a fantastic candidate to do it multiple times this year.

    He just might. Walks 2 after Rocco overmanages himself into having a guy at 2nd who hasn't touched the field in an MLB game this season and he errors on the final out of the 10th. Unbelievable.

    This Colome guy is awesome. Who the hell is Blankenhorn. I could have made that play. Baldelli is a dimwit.

    WTF. That’s the worst throw I have seen in years.

    Tried to watch this afternoons game. Unwatchable. Some guy with 9 innings major league experience shuts down the Twins for 4 innings. Fans in the stands outside wearing masks. Wanna beat the Twins?
    Offspeed stuff out of the strikezone.

    This Baldelli fella has no energy, no baseball instincts, and should be gone by the All-Star break.

    Baldelli is a mouth piece for Falvey and Levine. They are very involved in telling him how and what to do. If they get the credit for good seasons and decisions, they need to take the blame for bad ones.

    Tyler Duffey puts a 3-2 hanging breaking ball on a tee for Ramirez.

    I saw respectable people pick this team to win the AL this year.

    Arraez gets the go ahead single and “Rocco”. takes him out of the game. Somebody should lock him in his office and let someone with a clue call the shots.

    Colome is statistically the worst in the history of baseball in a pitchers 8 appearances in a season, per some metrics.

    What metrics are those? His standard metrics are awful, but not historically bad. I see he's got a -1.4 WAR at least.

    Right the ship Rocco. Rogers is your closer. This other bum is a mop up guy until he can pitch a bunch of clean innings.

    Austadillo is not a big league player. Cave is a bench player. Kirilloff needs to play.

    Polanco riding the pines tonight.

    Colume. 3 walks and a hit batter. Awesome.
