Patching Holes: How the Twins can still fix their roster (RP Edition) It’s no surprise that the Twins have to address their bullpen after the departures of May, Romo, Clippard, and Wisler. So far all they have to show for it is Robles.

Patching Holes: How the Twins can still fix their roster (SS/Utility Edition) It was quite impressive how inept the Twins middle infield was as a whole offensively in 2020.

Patching Holes: How the Twins can still fix their roster (SP Edition) Major League Baseball is no longer played with only 5 starting pitchers, and it hasn’t been for awhile. The importance of depth becomes crucial here as teams know that during a season, they will have to use 8, 9, 10+ starters in a given season.

Anyone else remember when the 2017 Twins used 16 different starters?

With departures of Odorizzi, Hill, and Ba...
