Falvey and Lavine fear loss of readers for TD

twins daily minnesota twins falvey off season free agents
Falvey and Lavine fear loss of readers for TD As I read our reactions to each missed free agent and the excitement of the winter meetings I have come to the conclusion that the FO really is concerned about readership and postings on TD. I mean we have had a "why we should sign him" article about every FA that has been signed so far. Just to be clear - not signed by us. We went from everyone with an arm that has not fallen off to all the hitters who can add to Bomba mania.

We debate, we anguish, and we hope. Well at least we read and post.

So imagine if we made the first big signing of the off season. Over - done, nothing to talk about. So we wait.

Then we get four articles about the winter meetings which actually turned into reports about other teams signings.

So we write about how Dobnak is better than we think (how do you know what we think?). Maybe the Twins would sign another level of pitcher - no. Maybe the next level. How perfect an opportunity for our favorite site. If the Twins had not passed on all the players we have heard from we would not be writing about all the FA that we have never heard of. They are FAs? Wow, who cares? Well we do.

Gleeman and the Geek get a chance to really dig deep into the pool of possible. We get to anguish and almost forgot we had 101 wins with this same group of players - sorry we did lose Cron, Perez, and Gibson. But now we can talk about the wisdom of Wisler and trading Eddie Rosario - the player we say was not as good as people think he is but we can trade him to the dumb teams who do not know he is as bad as TD writers think he is.

So thank you Mr Falvey and Mr Levine.

It is a competition. Every player has a team/s they long to play for. Agents have a pecking order of teams they contact, and they look for the money.


We are a cold Kansas City. Right?

I just heard a tweet from Falvey that was confirmed by Levine.The Twins still have very strong interest in MadBum and Wheeler.They are not giving up.There goal is to keep this fantasy that they building a winner through patience going at least until the trade deadline!

No matter what we do, there will be some fans who will not be satisfied.  After all, fan is short for fanatics.  :)
