    This team is a wreck. Need everyone back and for some guys to pull their weight (looking at YOU Kyle Tucker), but I think they’ll sort things out before long.

    I just can't get mad in early to mid April. Never really have. Tombstone year got close but even that was 51 games in.

    We're less than 20.

    Pitching is problematic. But it's complete bull**** that the Twins get their series postponed while the Astros don't.

    Diaz is doing pretty much what I expect from him...

    .258 AVG, .343 OBP, 762 OPS, 118 OPS+

    He's been fine and plays his role very well. He's a major league hitter who can fill-in at multiple positions around the diamond.

    On some teams he'd be an everyday player. On this team he should not be.

    It sucks being the backup IF on the Astros and being bad in the OF.

    I've never understood the hate for Diaz. He's a hell of a backup IF when healthy.
