1 Year 12 Million is what i'm hearing. 

 

Lynn should be upgrade over Mejia, Hughes and Sanchez.

 

Turn on the applause sign. 

 
As you wish.

Hope Berrios still gets Opening Day.

Otherwise, good deal, good price, no long term commitment.

I'm sure we'll still get a post-signing piece regurgitating all of the analysis from the plethora of articles before this signing.

After that ...

Play ball!

The deal for Pineda may also turn out to be a good one and credit should be further given for the prospects that have been added. The only non-cash cost has been Palacios and a third round pick. Severino may be a good substitute for Palacios.

I'm pretty sure it's the 75th pick in the draft. Twins got a competitive balance round B pick. The Tinws would give up their 3rd highest pick.

Hope this doesn't turn out like when the Twins signed Kendrys Morales.

 

The biggest questions will be what has he been doing since pitchers & catchers reported? Is he behind & will he be ready for opening day without much of any Spring Training?

Competitive Balance B picks are protected, no?I think it's 95

I'm on board, but that is another conversation, given that the Twins play in Puerto Rico (Berrios's home) in mid April but the Opening Day starter would not be lined up to pitch in that series... hey lets start a new thread

I preferred Cobb, but I love this move.It was needed.

 

Mostly agree.

 

Strong case was easy to make for Cobb over Lynn, or Arrieta instead on the one-year, but a one year/bargain $ commitment to fill the gaping hole in the rotation is entirely acceptable vs. the alternative of Mejia, Hughes or Sanchez. Meanwhile Lynn stays highly motivated to perform at a high level to continue his pursuit of a big payday, and the Twins now have a nice cushion until Romero and/or Gonsalves prove themselves ready for the next level.

Giving up the draft pick is just blue sky, long shot at best. Much better than giving up a semi proven prospect or two at the trade deadline for two months. 

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

I'm very happy with the move, especially just for one year.

 

I like Lynn, but if it doesn't work out, I'm glad we don't have to worry about a Jordan Zimmerman type situation longer term with the jump to the AL.

I'm not worried about that happening, Lynn still has a few weeks before the season starts. Morales signed in May, when the season was around 33% progress.

 

 

Who gets axed on the 40 man?

I would hope Sanchez or Kinley, but maybe it'll be Vargas. The only reason he's still here is just in case Mauer/Morrison gets hurt, which I think they can risk. If not, Slegers/Enns might be next up because they don't project to be anything more than AAAA pitchers.

And one of the best parts of the signing is no more threads addressing if and when and who the Twins may sign for the rotation.LOL

Given how this front office has plucked guys like Odorizzi, Morrison, Reed, and now Lynn this offseason for peanuts, I’d be enraged if I was a fan of one of the other 5-7 fringe contender teams in baseball.

It feels really good to be on this end of things for once.

 

The Twins finally bit the bullet, threw out the stultified parts of the "Twins Way" mythos, and (evidently) went out and got the right guys to run the front office (and loosened the pocket books a little in the process). 

 

Enjoy the ride while it lasts, folks. The big money teams' headhunters will likely be coming after Falvey/Levine in the years just ahead.

I have to admit, I was not excited about Hughes or Sanchez.

 

I suspect the FO wasn't really excited about either either.
