eak?"First Pitch: 6:40p CentralTelevision: FOX Sports North , (subscription)Ride the Radio Waves (English): WCCO 830 AM, Treasure Island Baseball NetworkMontar las ondas de radio (espaol): twinsbeisbol.comKnow Thine Enemy: Bluebird BanterAfter Adalberto Meja single-handedly destroyed any chance of victory last night, the Minnesota Twins face the Toronto Blue Jays (where ya fans at, Mounties????) in the second of a four-game set at Target Field in Minneapolis. TJ and the baseball gods have conspired to smite me once again; I have been tasked with informing you that Kyle Gibson will be starting on the mound tonight for the Twins, his third start this season. His last start was at New York against the Mets, where he once again failed to make it through five innings: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 6 K Jonny Venters Jersey , 2 HR. His ERA currently sits at 7.71, which is an area code in the state of Hidalgo in Mexico. I think Hidalgo is also the name of a movie, but I’m not very much of a movie connoisseur to remember correctly or find out. Our neighbors to the east-southeast will counter with Aaron Sanchez, a home-grown player from the Blue Jays organization. Sanchez was an All-Star in 2016 and then followed up with injury-shortened campaigns in 2017 and 2018. This year, he’s started three times, posting a 1.69 ERA over 16 innings, allowing only three earned runs, nine walks, and striking out 16 batters. He’s also allowed no home runs so far. (nudge-nudge, C.J. Cron) Also Matt Moore Jersey , 169 is not an area code in North America.Fun fact: Gibson’s bWAR right now is -0.4; Sanchez’s bWAR right now is 0.4. That’s enough sabremetrics from me. Today's LineupsBLUE JAYSTWINSGO tWINs GO!

As such, he was in a position to be selective as he looked for a new team. Whatever the merits of the Rockies’ decision to want Murphy, this article provides interesting insights on how Murphy chose the Rockies.Murphy offers a correct assessment of the state of the Rockies when he says that the pitching staff is underrated. He also offers a suspect assessment of the state of the Rockies when he says the lineup is “deep and dangerous.” It’s great to be optimistic, of course, and maybe Murphy’s presence will make it so. But as things stand now, it is the lack of a deep lineup that is keeping the Rockies from reaching their potential.In this article about Murphy’s arrival , Jack Magruder also touches on the veteran’s success in high-leverage situations. As the Rockies continue to seek opportunities in the playoffs and meaningful games, that will be something they will seek, even if it’s tough to measure or predict.Ryan McMahon competing for 2B job with Rockies | MLB.comThe Colorado Rockies did not give McMahon a real shot at playing time last season. It sounds like they will actually give him a chance to prove himself this season, at least in Spring Training. Thomas Harding writes that the team plans to give him a real shot, indicated at least in part by their decision not to sign DJ LeMahieu.McMahon had real struggles and real flashes of brilliance last season. The challenge for him and so many young players around baseball will be channeling the good and being rid of the bad. The unique challenge in McMahon’s case is the fact he will be competing with fellow prospects for playing time at second base.MLB to crack down on sign stealing | HardballTalkRelevant to an incident in Colorado Rockies history, Major League Baseball announced this week that they will crack down on sign stealing. Specifically, they will penalize the use of cameras and other technology to steal signs. You know, like the Philadelphia Phillies (allegedly) using binoculars to steal signs against the Rockies. OK, so maybe binoculars aren’t equivalent to these other forms of technology. Still.Craig Calcaterra writes that these concerns about sign stealing are about pace of play as much as they are about fairness or cheating. Teams changing signs and then being confused about the changed signs will slow things down. That’s fair, although I think there is still a distinction to be drawn between a baserunner at second base cracking the opponent’s signs versus them getting the signs from technology. Ian Desmond may find positive value through his position change | Beyond the Box ScoreGet past the fact that David Dahl should be playing center field and there are some interesting pieces of analysis here. As Devan Fink notes Bartolo Colon Jersey , Desmond is likely a better defender in center field than he has been at first base. That makes him more valuable because he will offer more on defense and because it will come from a more important defensive position.That all sounds fine, but if you think Ian Desmond is done playing first base then I think you are hilarious.The sacrifice of Charlie Blackmon | The Athletic ($)There are two sacrifices at play here: Chuck Nazty’s move from center field to right field and the fact that he will remain in the leadoff spot of the lineup. Both make sense, even if the move to right instead of left field might not make sense initially. With the vast expanse of Coors Field, the team will probably benefit from David Dahl using his range in that spot (even if he should actually be playing center field, but alas). Nick Groke writes about the temptation to move Blackmon into the heart of the order, both from the perspective of the team and of the player. At this point it still seems like a “feel” move as much as anything to keep Blackmon at leadoff. Groke writes about the pressure that takes off young players who might otherwise need to lead off. And maybe it’s just a situation that falls in the “if it ain’t broke...” category.Renaming all 30 MLB teams | - Cut4The suggestion for the Colorado Rockies is the Colorado Triceratops. That is based on the same history that gave us Dinger as a mascot. I actually like Dinger, so I don’t mind the name. I imagine I am in the minority in both cases.
