Next Twins pitching coach must find ways to miss bats

“Certainly swing-and-miss percentage has become even more of a focus as you watch postseason games and you see pitching staffs that are top to bottom capable of doing that,” Levine said. “So, we’re going to be attentive to that as well in trying to round out our staff with a little bit more means of missing some bats.”

Seems like that would be more of a job for the pitchers.

Molitor chuckled at the modern notion that pitchers who miss bats make their managers look brilliant.

“You don’t even have to worry about catching the ball then, unless you’re the catcher,” he said.


Oooh, Wieters burn

Big ask -- maybe if he got a couple of pet bats right away, he'll be emotionally attached enough by Feb to miss them while he's at spring training. But I doubt they make lovable pets.

And they'll grow up to suck your blood.
