Minnesota Twins: 5 reasons for caution (the hay isn't in the barn yet) 1) The infield defense is slightly suspect and below average . -Sano, Arraez and Polanco all have below average defensive stats
2) Jake Odorizzi and Jose Berrios prove to be below average front line starters. Yes they've proven themselves as #3's. Can they repeatably beat other teams 1's and 2's?
3) Byron Buxton is delayed and/or hurt again

Sugar plums would have been the signing of a front line starting pitcher like Madison Bumgarner, Dallas Keuchel or the like. But in Twins fashion they delivered a lump of coal. The Twins went back to the old boneyard t...

Minnesota Twins: A Case for Matt Harvey? If the Minnesota Twins are going to the boneyard for starting pitchers why not plunge deep. I proclaim it the year of the reclamation project for the Twins. Let me propose Matt Harvey as a candidate.
Pros
* He still has averaged nearly 6 K’s per game
* He has zero leverage and should be very cheap. A 1 year $2M with incentives up to $10M may land him
* He...
