    Top teams making moves to get better while Twins do what the Twins do...Nothing

    So far in this early offseason the teams that seem to always win are making moves to get better. At the same time the Twins are doing nothing, oh wait they are talking to a 36 year old pitcher... Why even waist the money on him? I mean he is super old. Matt Garza or Jimenez would be way better options, they are both younger and could help the team next season and a few seasons down the road. Also why not go after McCann? He hits for power and drives in runs. There are so many moves they could be making but they aren't! It is the same teams making moves that always do. Why don't the Twins take notes?

    Cardinals needed a SS and a CF. They got them. The Twins didn't need those players.

    The Tigers and Rangers made a deal that made sense for both of them. Made no sense for the Twins.

    Other guys haven't signed. I don't know what the Twins are supposed to do about that.

    You are asking a goldfish to climb a tree....What has Terry done in his 20 years as the GM ,to make you believe he will shoot out of the gate and spend like there is no tomarrow?

    It is early in the game…take a chill pill. Wake up after the winter meetings and THEN you can start bit chin'. We are still in the 2nd inning of the offseason. Plenty of time to come back.

    I remember them doing that in 97 or 98. Back in the day when I was living in Canada.

    Thanks, Snepp

    I would like to "like" this, but anything that makes life less enjoyable for the GBP fans of the world, most of whom are more insufferable than Yankee fans, is not hard to get behind.

    I see it as "the Cards had needs," and they aggressively went out and tried to address them.

    Hmmm, that is a tough choice....higher draft pick vs. miserable Wisconsinites? How about higher draft pick for us and we root hard for Detroit on Turkey day?

    Best of both worlds.

    How about a tie... Miserable packer fans and still doesn't move us draft wise ver much. Love it!!

    As for no moves yet, look at the dates of last years moves...If TR holds the same pattern, a lot could happen in the next two weeks.

    Please move the Packer/Vikings talk to another thread. This one is for debating the Twins timeline for making offseason moves. Thanks.

    I don't know what to think.

    (1) The Twins have to sell extra hard because we are coming off of three horrible seasons. If you were Hughes, would you rather pitch in Miami or Minnesota. It can be a tough decision.

    (2) I feel the Twins haven;t made any offers that someone will grab at. Which is dangerous in this game, as why would someone want to come back to the Twins management for a counter offer. You should put you best cards on the able, and sooner rather than later if you really want a game changer. If you think Garza is with $60 million and so do other teams, you do have to make a higher offer...kinda like buying a house with multiple offers...you aren't going to get the listing for less than the listed price.

    The big Twins news this weekend was the listing of spring training invitees. I'm glad I was sitting down.

    Maybe the big news after Thanksgiving will be the rehiring of all minor league managers and coaches.

    If we could sign at least one good starting pitcher (Garza, Jimenez, or Ervin Santana) to 4-5 year deal i would be happy because we aren't going to contend in 2014 or posibly even 2015.
    I would only like to see Scott Baker or Johan Santana join on a short term deal just so when you see them pitch you can think of the good times.
    If I could have it I would sign Matt Garza to a 4-5 year deal, Scott and Johan to 1 year deals along with Casey Mcgehee 3B (1 year), and Jarred Saltiwhatever C (3 year).
    our 2014 rotation and Defensive positioning
    Rotation:
    Matt Garza
    Johan Santana
    Kevin Corriea
    Scott Baker
    Samuel Deduno

    Defensive Positioning:
    LF Josh Willingham
    CF Alex Pressly
    RF Oswaldo Arcia
    3B Casey Mcgehee
    SS Pedro Florimon
    2B Brian Dozier
    1B Joe Mauer
    C Salty/Doumit
    DH Doumit/Salty

    Bench:
    SS Jason Bartlett
    CF Darin Mastroianni
    C Chris Hermann
    1B Chris Collabello

    Verdict: looks like a family reunion with some new faces.
    71-91 4th AL central

    While I understand your sentiment,and dont disagree.It is not Terrys way.Yes it would be nice to sign a pair of starters Like Garza and Jimenez, and maybe Arroyo or Kazmir.It just wont happen, we are not going to compete in 2014 , we are waitting on the kids to get here,and this front office doesnt understand about obtaining quality players in free agency, then trading them to build a minor leaque system. So just wait, tommarrow has a bright future .

    And now, Haren is gone. 1 year $10M + option with the Dodgers. At that price, I would have loved to see the Twins offer something like 2-25 or 3 -36. He may be trying to rebuild value so I have no doubt they would have had to pay more than 1-10 to get him to come here. Despite it being early, as we are so often reminded here, it's starting to look like every other off-season of TR's career, at least as far as Free Agents are concerned.
