If we don't get that much and it doesn't change moving forward what difference does it make if we move him now or later?  If we don't get that much for him now then I am just fine with keeping him.


Too early for this?

1. Buxton

2. Mauer

3. Sano

4. Park

5. Plouffe

6. Escobar

7. Dozier

8. Rosario

9. Susuki/Murphy

Right now this is better than anything we put out there if Sano does not play outfield, at least until Kepler is up.  

Not too early at all, IMPO. But I would bump Dozier and his mix of OB, power and speed up to 5 or 6. Regardless of a 5-6 of Plouffe/Dozier or Dozier/Plouffe, I'd put Rosario and his mixed bag of excitement and left handed bat in the 7 hole...Escobar 8th...Zuke and the killer 9th.


As stated, at least until Kepler is ready. (or Plouffe is traded-making way for Arcia?)

Yup. My 'shock' wasn't so much that it wasn't a lot of money, I just thought the market would set it higher.

There was no market. Once the Twins won the bid,it's a take it or leave it. He had to take it. He is almost 30, and he gets a shot at MLB. I would have done the same thing in a heartbeat. Parks decision was correct, based on the options he had.
TwinsWorld: Did you hear we just updated the Stadium Club?

If I wanted balls and strikes called by a robot, I would get an Xbox!

I know I am both Old and Old fashioned - I like defense. I like fast agile defenders who prevent runs.  I like Buxton, Rosario, Kepler.  I like a great infield, but we cannot have that.  Escobar and Dozier are at least average. The corners?  I know we tend to see teams sacrifice here, but the biggest issue for me is that if Sano is not OF and I hope he is not, and if he is not DH - we have now committed this - we have to put him at 3B.  Catcher???
