Machadi does fit better

If that's the plural of Machado, then yes please, I'll take two!

If we somehow manage to convince Manny to come to MN, and Sano moves to 1st, where does that leave Brent Rooker? He’s in AA right now, and is a good shot of being a Sept call up and next year’s starting 1st baseman.

Hopefully this means a Sano for Realmuto deal is still possible. Although probably not.

that extra 7.5MM from the Hughes trade of a draft pick will be pocketed. zero doubt.

Eh, I think there's a good chance it will be used for the Twins payroll. Especially if they are going to slash payroll by $25M like some have claimed on another thread, they're going to need that money.

Slashing payroll is pocketing the money.... They won't lose money next year if the payroll is the same, they'll just make less. That was exactly my point. Payroll is going to drop, a lot, I'd guess.
