Show Notes

All but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs even heading into this series against the Kansas City Royals, the Minnesota Twins looked worn out and unmotivated in a three-game sweep at the hands of their division rivals. David and Dan discuss the few bright spots in the performances of Carlos Correa and Matt Wallner, and they wonder whether either of them will start next season on the Twins' 26-man roster. David requests a rather significant changeover of the coaching staff, while Dan praises Rocco's benching of Gilberto Celestino, even if it was done later than it should have been done. They dive back into the rule change coming next year that shortens the distance between bases, and they make their selections in a Puckett's Picks race that is coming down to the wire. Thanks for listening, and go Twins.
