Snow is flying...wind is blowing and all the leaves from North Dakota are settling in Minnesota for the winter

 

What better time than to update the Twins BluePrint Tool for 2021

 

I've averaged the 3 MLBTR Arbitration Projections for each player and will add the Free Agent Projections when they become available

 

Make a Copy of the whole sheet if you like or just Duplicate the Tab that says Duplicate this Sheet and make your changes for everyone to see

 

Enter a name (Lastname, First) for each position on the roster sheet and it will fill in known contract info for the player

Want to see what the payroll would be with Lindor as a Twin...put his name in at SS and watch the payroll soar

 

Don't like the numbers feel free to use the Tool and enter your own salaries (be sure to enter the full amount 10000000 as opposed to 10M)

 

I Created an End of Year Roster as a reference to what the 2020 final roster came to and a Bauer or Bust sample that works through the next 3 seasons...more on that in my next post

You got something for old school non analytic baseball fan who hates Ks, loves bunts, wants steals, and believes in complete games?

Actually Dusty Baker has given it to me in the Houston - Tampa Bay series.And I am loving it. 

 

And the fun thing is - I was at that game.

Wow! You are old. I was at a 1954 spring training game between Cleveland and the New York Giants. I saw, not only a preview of that year's World Series, but I got to see a young Willie Mays, just back from the Korean Conflict, trying to regain his center field position.

Longer odd's Question:

 

Me picking a random game from 1957 to link and you being at the game

 

or

 

Twins starting pitcher going 8 7 6 5+ innings

 

or

 

Any Twin hitter slapping a pitch to the non-shifted side of the infield

 

or

 

Twins winning a playoff game (too soon?)

I am not sure I can compute those kind of odds, but the Twins winning a playoff really throws things.I used to attend a Dodger series with my parents and grandparents every year in the 1950s - they were great games.

Old school here with no DH. I like tense games going into late innings. The outcome of most baseball games need to be played on the field. Almost no teams win less than 40% unlike the NBA and even the NFL and college football and basketball.

Bunts coming unexpectedly or not happening when the batter or pitcher hitting swings away. Ballparks should not be bandboxes.
