If they're out on Wheeler, fine, but they better have a back-up plan. MadBaum as the second move is fine. He can't be the main acquisition.

 

Understand he will command 100 mill as well. Twins will value him well below that. Expect to hear they are "IN" on him for a week until he signs with someone else. Twins will "try" though. LOL

The Twins know "trying" isn't good enough in this instance.

But does he feature all four pitches? 

 

Can he reach that balance point?

Based on the research I'm seeing. 

 

Santa has to deliver to approximately 6 thousand kids a second. 

 

In order to get that many presents delivered that fast, the only thing that makes sense to me.

 

There would have to be some throwing of the presents involved. This takes velocity, accuracy and almost perfect rapid fire mechanics. 

 

In other words... there is no way he is doing this by Reindeer and foot speed alone.

 

The guy can no doubt throw.
