Who should Sox fear the most, CLE or Minny?

Who should Sox fear?

  1. 1. Choose just one

    • Twins
    • Guardians
    • Ourselves…JR Hahn TLR, injuries/out of position players, training group, etc.
    • Nobody, KW Old School…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself

When have you ever started a thread recently?

You seem to enjoy criticizing, but that’s fairly easy now, isn’t it?   Hopefully it provides you a modicum of enjoyment.

I dunno I don't keep track of those things.  Not important

The better question is whether they can hold off KC and Detroit for 3rd place...

Yeah, those teams are genuinely worse.

But have we even seen the bottom yet?  Sox feel closer to a team imploding than they do any sort of threat to make a run at the division.

We may not have seen the bottom yet and I know the Royals play us tough, but the Tigers do not.

SEC >>> AL Central

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34153969/minnesota-twins-pitching-coach-wes-johnson-exiting-reportedly-same-position-lsu-tigers

 

“Johnson has accepted the pitching coach position at LSU, according to a report by D1Baseball.com on Twitter. LSU spokesman Bill Franques said the Tigers plan to announce a new pitching coach Monday, though he did not identify the hire.

The Twins did not confirm Johnson's destination. Further announcements from the club surrounding the staff change will come this week. The Athletic reported Johnson will receive a significant raise.

The midseason move by a key assistant from a first-place team was startling, but Johnson's arrival in 2019 was also unusual. He was the first college pitching coach in four decades to jump directly to the major leagues when the Twins hired him from Arkansas, which was the national runner-up in the 2018 College World Series.

Johnson, 50, spent nine seasons as a college pitching coach before the Twins plucked him with a keen eye on his background in biomechanics. He has a master's degree in kinesiology.”

Guardians have had an incredible FOUR ninth inning comebacks against the Twins in the span of one week.

If those games all went against them:

 

Minnesota +16

White Sox/Guardians -4

10 GB

 

Instead, it’s 2 GB and 6 GB for the White Sox and still not out of it yet.

Helps that the Division’s other “Italian Stallion” Rocco Baldelli, is as bad a manager as his counterpart.

Pagan is Rocco’s Leury.

Guardians walk off the Twins.

Sox could have a lot of say in reducing the win total it will take to get the 3-seed.

Get healthy. Stop sucking. Win games.

Fifth win in one week in their final at-bat for Guardians.

Naylor pulled one barely foul that would have been one of the longest walk off homers in stadium history.

Six starters and F.Reyes the result of just three trades, Lindor/Clevinger/Houston for Straw.

That Rogers trade for Paddack/Pagan coming home to roost, although Rogers has had some implosions of his own. Also a bit crazy Archer is out-pitching Bieber ERA-wise this year, but so is Cueto.

 

Yankees series this weekend becomes biggest for CLE in five years at home, starting with Gerrit Cole. Twins get the pesky Orioles.

My god this division is atrocious.

There is one legit superstar in Ramirez, a constantly injured star in Correa who might only be around for one season, three could-be stars in Buxton, Robert and Witt, Jr. and then tons of question marks surrounding the Tigers.
