It is time for everyone to get comfortable trading our 34-year-old “ace” at his peak value (yes, there will be a good market unlike for Dozier). I am super optimistic about our core, but our window really opens in 2019 if we are being honest with ourselves. Santana will not be part of that….I promise

Hopefully Santana throws a gem tonight and we can trade him to someone willing to overpay

Berrios and Polanco are decent major league players. They mostly need experience, and with that will come better poise.

The last thing they need is the dangling withdrawal of managerial confidence and managerial under-the-bus-throwing, which we as fans became accustomed to over the last several years, until it reached a point where projecting a young player to never be any good because he made a mistake or had some bad games (or didn't play to his potential because of injury, or hyperactivity, or . . .) appeared to pass for baseball wisdom.

 Berrios? I totally agree. Polanco? I see a Florimon playing a lot of AAA ball and bouncing around as a utility throw away over and over and over.

I'm starting to think the Twins might not be quite as good as Houston.


I take it all back.

Well so far he's amassed 1.2 WAR and he's only in his age 23 season - or the same age that Florimon was putting up a .483 OPS in AA.
