    Chief (i think) just posted some bull**** about a players range and how it doesn't matter where they play.
    Putouts by RF are annually more than putouts by LFers, somewhere around 10% most years. I posted this data from baseball ref.

    Just looked at the thread. He said plus glove, not gold glove.

    He just hasn't got the sinker working yet. And the ball carries on a hot day. Nothing wrong with Blacky.

    Meanwhile, TF is a graveyard for HRs*.

    *In the bottom half of innings.

    That big of a difference, eh? That's interesting. I wouldn't have expected that at all.

    That's interesting. I wonder what variables feed that disparity - more home runs go to left field than right field? Worse defenders on the whole in left than in right?

    Thankfully, the Twins cleared the bases of those pesky runners before that happened.

    Jeff Manship...they still haven't sent this guy somewhere that even Baseball Reference wouldn't be able to find him?

    Honestly, I think he's fine. He's awful and it'd be nice to have someone better but he's bullpen filler that (should) only throw garbage innings.

    With that said, he is really awful.

    I have now given up on any material chance of the Twins making the postseason.

    Yep. This rotation has far too many holes in it to ever compete. When you're just hoping to not blow 3 out of 5 games in the first three innings, you have a very bad team.
