Agreed, I don't know who to blame really. Milone, Anderson, or the fact that his shirt says "Minnesota" now.

 

Anderson. Definitely Anderson.

For those saying the Milone demotion wasn't performance based:

Do you really think the A's go out and trade away maybe the best pure SS prospect in baseball if they think Milone was actually as good as his ERA suggested? 

Yes.

It's time for a change in the front office down to scouting.Just look at all the former Twins in the majors having successful careers other places, example, Carlos Gomez, Denard Span, Ben Revere, and Justin Morneau...

We definitely have to blame Anderson because a guy like Milone turned into a pumpkin within a month of being acquired.;)

 

I blame marginal stuff.If it's off just a little then it turns into a disaster.

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation?
