Yeah, but Levine is going to say this to try and drive down the price of relievers. It would be dumb to admit they need relievers badly because then the teams they'll try to trade with will increase the prospect price.

Eh, I dont think what he says on the radio makes any difference to opposing GMs. It will be LeVine calling, not the other way around, and those other GMs aren't going to change their asking price.

A used car salesman dosent change the price he asks just because I told him I already have a used car or two I might settle for.

Teams aren't stupid. They know what the Twins need.......

Meh...the Indians have played bottom feeders for 14-15 games in a row. See what happens the next 3 games

while the Twins were losing against KC and CHI. If they don’t get some pitching help, they’re not gonna win the division

I arrived at the 18 inning debacle in the 3rd inning. Today was my first game back at the park. I've seen the Bomba squad score 1 run in 26 full baseball innings...

Now entertaining motions to adjourn.

Any new business? Or can it be tabled until after the bell rings and recess is over?

So moved.

Actually under Robert's rules, the president adjourns the meeting no motion necessary I believe...

To be clear... we are adjourned though, right? It's a work day.

I don't know...

I think we are still in session, just everyone has left the floor.

I the adjournment happens in game threads when they get archived.

Not sure minutes need to be approved or anything.

Too bad the Chief master sergeant-at-arms isn't available for duty at the moment, but I can substitute if needed. Any ballots need tallying?
