Repost from Feb 2016. “4 things that need to happen for twins to win World Series in next 5 years

So I posted this 3 years ago almost to the day. It’s funny to look at some of these theses names and see how wrong I was. But also how some remain true. Still waiting on Buck and Sano to figure it out. Man was I wrong about the bullpen as None of the arms I listed made it except for Rogers. I think we may have a few of the secondary stars in Rosario, Po...

Signing experienced bullpen arms and Deja Vu

Posted by Supfin99 , 02 February 2016 · 567 views

Community Blog Post
There has been a lot of angst this offseason about the Twins not signing an experienced bullpen arm or two. I feel like January 2014 all over again. Everyone was saying we needed to sign some starting pitching. In back to back years we have signed Nolasco and Santana. If you go by salary our rotation would be Santana, Hughes, Nolasco, Milone and Gibso...

Will the real Twins please stand up?

Posted by Supfin99 , 15 August 2013 · 204 views

Community Blog Post
This has been a strange year for the Twins. I don't know if most realize it but take a couple of horrendous stretches out that amount to about 3 weeks of games and the Twins are 8 games over .500. The Twins had a 10 game losing streak and another where they lost 11 out of 12. So which team are they closer to be being? The one that was gawd-awful for 3...

Sano's first contract

Posted by Supfin99 , 14 August 2013 · 228 views

Community Blog Post
I wrote this article in June right after Sano was promoted to AA. Even though I clearly state that this was a conversation for next March IF Sano did well in AA, it was still ridiculed by a few short sighters. I wanted to repost and see what everyone thinks now.

Wimmers, Bard and Chargois

Posted by Supfin99 , 03 July 2013 · 209 views

Community Blog Post
Any update on any of these 3? I am starting to get worried about Bard especially. In over a year as a professional he has thrown 7 innings. I hope that Wimmers can follow the Gibson recovery plan and can get back on the mound for a hand full of starts this year and then go to the AZL.

Why is Buxton still in CR?

Posted by Supfin99 , 20 June 2013 · 290 views

Community Blog Post
I wasn't upset last week when Buxton wasn't promoted because I thought it made sense. The Kernels hadn't clinched until the middle of the week and then when they did it was too late. Fort Myers was off all weekend for the Florida St All Star Game. Why would you promote somebody so they could sit around all weekend. Then when you had to wait till Monda...

Twins should be proactive with Sano and his contract

Posted by Supfin99 , 11 June 2013 · 240 views

Community Blog Post
Now that Sano is in New Britain I thought we start speculating on how the Twins should handle him. I would love to see the Twins be proactive with him like the Rays were with Longoria. I think you go this agent next Spring and offer something like this.

8 years 40 Million
3 Million signing bonus up front

Twins top 10 prospects 2014

Posted by Supfin99 , 13 February 2013 · 207 views

Community Blog Post
First we need to decide who will drop off the list after this season. Hicks and Gibson are locks to lose their prospect status. I also think Arcia will play enough games this year for the Twins to no longer be a prospect. So that opens 3 spots on the top 10. I also needed to account for a player or 2 not playing wel and dropping (see Benson, Joe). Speaki...

How happy would we be

Posted by Supfin99 , 12 February 2013 · 407 views

Community Blog Post
I was looking at several current and fromer players to see who some of our top prospects would compare to, maybe get a glimpse of what they might look like in a few years if everything went right. Would an infield featuring Adrian Beltre (Sano) and Robinson Cano (Rosario) excite you? How about an outfield Devon White, Magglio Ordonez, Kenny Lofton and S...
