Not bad. Bye Marwin. And it looks like Polanco will play more of a utility role or fight over 2B with Arraez. I do think Polanco would...

Keeping Graterol, Acquiring Maeda Should Be the Twins' Goal In a bizarre and frustrating twist, the Red Sox are staunchly refusing to get anything less than Graterol (and more) from the Twins. It just ain’t gonna work with Boston, Falvine.

Derek Falvey and Thad Levine made an offer that Wheeler may have considered had he not been tied so heavily to New Jersey and the National League East.

Thad Levine, in an interview with Aaron Gleeman, proclaimed that the Twins explored a trade during the season for Trevor Bauer. I can not remember the exact quote, but it went something like...
