It's good to see some of the younger prospects getting chances with other teams.  A few years ago the Twins were the last uniform many players wore at end of career.

Eh, Jhoulys Chacin is considered a "former Twin" now? Okay, okay, it's relevant because he just got dropped. But I don't want to see him on this list next year!!!We've got standards around here.

 

One guy that I'll keep my eye on is Jaylin Davis. Boy that trade still makes my blood boil.

Depends on who makes the list or who is updating comments... I also included Anibal Sanchez and Sean Gilmartin...

I watched that and was rooting for him. Sad that he's not a Twin anymore, dude has some velo.

There have been a couple big articles on Dodgers fan sites and the Yahoo Sports, etc about Brusdar the past week or so. The guy's going to become a household name.

 

Still OK with the trade considering the Twins SP needs. You gotta trade away quality guys when you have no other internal options.

The Cubs just signed Ryan LaMarre to a minor league contract. 

 

And now I can't quit thinking about going to QuikTrip:

And by "Ron" Shelton, I think you mean "Derek," though Ron Shelton did turn his 512 minor league games into Bull Durham.

And 512 probably also represents the number of times they've shown it this year.

 

But on the bright side, they could have showed "Brewster's Millions" one more time.

A genetic replica of Taylor Rogers is pitching for the Giants. (And surrendered 4 runs in 2/3 of an inning last night. Ouch!)

I'm surprised Trevor Hildenberger didn't even make the Red Sox 60 man roster. Yikes.

There are a couple guys on that list that I would like back, of course. But for the most part, none of them would probably make the 2020 Twins. And it's hard to truly regret someone like Hendricks as he really found himself at least a couple of years after he was already gone. Nobody had a clue Nick Anderson would do what he's done, but it would have been really nice to give him a shot before letting him go.

Over the years, the Twins have also benefited by guys let go or traded away. So any lament is similarly shared by other teams as well.

Pressly still hurts, so does Graterol and Escobar. But as highat stated, you have to trade away quality sometimes to get something back.

But it is interesting to see lists like this. Thanks Seth!
