Tampa Series Key

If the Twins beat the Rays in the series then there is real reason to hope, if not...Twins probably not coming back




But should it prevent you from figuirng out a way to jettison bodies and salaries and guys who AREN'T coming abck in 2019...especially those NOT producing in 2018.

 

Logan Morrison, Addison Reed, Brian Dozier are all replaceable. So is Robby Grossman. You can probably live with Zach Duke and Fernando Rodney. Lance Lynn and Ervin Santana.

 

If not traded, allow to pass into waiver claim territory come August, which may be the only alternative.

 

I think YOUNG talent can perform equally as well and if the Twins win, it will be because of the future, not the guys trying to restore a career in the final months.

The TWins need to be patient with Reed.Otherwise, all of this year's free agents and expiring contract crowd can go for a decent price.
