This is my problem with the whole thing. Curtiss showed some promise in the minors but was not given much of a chance in the majors. We do not know what we have given up on because we gave people NOT part of the future time to play over those that MIGHT have been part of the future. Run the kid out there in various September situations and find out for sure! Maybe this was a Paul Molitor issue? I don't know but I am a little frustrated by the handling of several young guys.
Agreed and it isn’t just the young guys.
Who the Twins give playing time to has been the biggest roadblock by far.
Bigger than money spent by far.
Increasing the value of as many players as possible not only increases what you get on the field but also in increases what you get back in future trades. Where are our superstars?
The organization can’t run like I buy my cars. I buy used and run it into the ground and buy used again... run it into the ground and buy used again.
I spent a lot of time last summer looking at what happened to our assets after they left the organization. What we got in return for assets traded. What we have developed for assets.
It isn’t pretty and it’s why we are still waiting.
