    Molitor as bad as GardY?

    The line up's he has been throwing out have been awful.
    I have no clue what is going on in his head.
    He puts players in slumps at 4 and 5 and better hitters high or low in the line up. WTH.
    He keeps putting players out that are hitting horribly.

    This will be his last season as coach for MN Twins. He has his head in the sand.

    Its shocking how similar it is. Right down to his (mis)use of the bullpen.

    And for a Hall of Fame baserunner, he seems incapable of getting through to the team. We're atrocious on the base paths.

    Logan Morrison is not a good hitter, period. He should bat 6th or perhaps 7th. They just aren't a good hitting team outside of Rosario and Escobar (and Mauer when he's healthy).

    Other than Lance Lynn, the pitching staff is decent. Lynn should probably not be starting.

    The team's an average baseball team...they punched above their weight last year and have regressed back to the mean this year. I don't think that's all on Molitor but I agree he's probably in his last year.
    Inching back towards the wagon...slowly...

    Bad team all around. Those hitting well last year are not hitting this year. Base running is terrible.

    Our pitching is ok and if we had a bit more run support we would probably be at .500

    I don't necessarily blame Molitor but whoever we have for a hitting coach should be fired.
    Publicity, fame and accolades can make a theory popular. They can't make it true.

    Today is another prime example. Morrison 4th, Dozier 5th. It doesn’t make any sense. Meanwhile, Adrianza, who’s been swinging it well in the past month is batting 9th.

    How about the call up of Motter? He can’t even hit .200 in the minors, and THAT’S who they call up with a struggling lineup???

    I concur. Molitor needs to go. He’s clueless.
