Or at least get closer to top-10?

I echo the previous commenter who was startled to read “The End” and “thank you for reading”. I hope you keep doing this for a long, long time. You have helped shape my thinking about baseball and specifically the Twins. Keep up the good work (but finish the Top-40 Twins! ;))

I guess I feel that Gardy and Andy got the pass because of the way the team went 0-5 with the projected starting pitching. They worked with what was provided to them–5 guys who could be “OK” (or better in Liriano’s case–maybe) or injured/horrible. You can’t replace an entire starting staff on the fly and expect to compete (though I would argue they never should of thought of that collection of pitchers as even adequate going into the season). Is that more on Gardy/Andy or Ryan/remnants of Smith? But…they had to make a show of doing ‘something’. And we see the results…

I don’t know what Molitor can say other than “have better eye-hand coordination like I did.” Is there any W-L analysis of if HOF-type players are better coaches than coaching professionals?

At first glance I thought you were retiring and I almost starting crying into my cereal.

There are plenty of buy-low(er) options on the market that could reasonably give 180 league average innings at worst, and it’s fair to say the Twins are years away from any real non-Gibson arms reaching the show.

Signing an Edwin Jackson or buying-low on Haren when the Angels decline his option have to be considerations. The rotation cannot survive without at least two new arms from outside the organization.
