    Bad puns. That's how eye roll.

The Twins signing a SP was unexpected?

The Twins signed a starting pitcher? Who'd we get?

I never had particularly strong hopes, and particularly by that point in the off-season, yeah, Perez was unexpected to me.

Always put the important things ahead of mere dire emergencies.

There's a ways to go before they break camp, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Gibson start on the Dl. He's thin as a rail having lost 25 pounds with Ecoli.


I would. You’re talking about a professional athlete. Pitchers are still almost a week away from even starting workouts. E coli poisoning isn’t particularly serious unless you are very young, very old or otherwise unhealthy. None of these apply to Gibson.

It likely will be to the extent of the damage. If he's recovered at this point, he might get off to a bit slower start, but yeah, I'd think he'd be fine...

 

but based on the amount of weight lost, I've got to think that this was a bit more than a random case of food poisoning. He's going to need to rebuild strength/muscle.

Depending on which Hildenberger is the real Hildenberger ('17 or '18), he might not belong in the league, let alone the '19 bullpen.


I am still of the opinion the Hildy was over / mis used in '18 and that he will be of value in '19 and beyond

No talk of marwin Gonzalez? This is the type of guy that we need. A solid bat who can play almost every position at an ML caliber of play. And switch hits. 

 

Our FO talks of being ready to strike when the oppurtunity comes. Should we just expect that oppurtunity to fall out of the sky? How about you put yourself in a better position for it to happen in the first place. A Gonzalez puts us in a far better position than Austin ever can.
