Yeah, look, Eddie is not the problem. When he is hot, he can carry a team. And that throw he made to second on the double in the corner was a perfect strike to 2B. Right on the money.
Twins need to move a couple top prospects for a stud SP, and they need to sign a guy like Cole. Why not fire sale Gordon, Lewis and a slugger for a stud SP?
I'd say add Cole and Wheeler and say goodbye to Gibby and Perez. Offer Jake and Pineda (at a discount due to the suspension).Cut ties with Schoop and Cron.Take a look at Kiri, or Rooker at 1B or move Sano overthere.
But on the "don't over react" side.Timing was bad and luck was bad. Losing big Mike was not bad luck though.He did a dumb thing. Keps and Cron and Marwin were rusty, as was Luis.Bad luck. And Berrios has worn down each year by October. He is not effective if he pitches 200 innings. He should skip a rotation spot starting third week of August to give him more rest. Or pitch him on 7 days rest late in the season until he develops more stamina..
