Whining got Twins hitters nowhere

April 11, 2011 - Per Peterson
Some members of the Twins hopefully have learned a lesson about complaining and have learned it’s a no-win situation. If you complain about something and nothing gets changed you look like a whiner. If you complain about something and changes are made because of it, and then those changes don’t result in results, you look worse. This past offseason, Twins hitters moaned about the batter’s eye at Target Field and the team took care of them by reducing the glare off said structure. Twins officials even removed the nice pine trees in centerfield so the hitters could see the ball coming out of the pitcher’s hand better. The result: One home run in three home games, and the guy who hit it has too much class to complain in the first place. Face it Twins, you’re not home run hitters, so stop trying to hit them. You couldn’t in Toronto and you couldn’t in New York. Any complaints about those ballparks? If the suggestion box is still open might I suggest focusing more on the mechanics of your swing and less on your surroundings? I’m sure you could find some problem with every ballpark in the American League, but complaining about them — even if you do start to eventually hit some home runs — just makes you look like silly, impossible-to-please children.
