I tend to agree about this year, RB.
My problems with this are:
Arroyo isn't the best that's available this year, and
When there are aces available, the Twins find reasons not to pursue them.
so I have a hard time giving them a pass this year.
There are no more than 15 aces in all of baseball. Expand that to front of the rotation starters, which are 1's and 2's, you have maybe 40 total. Which ones did the Twins have a realistic chance to sign?
Note, Meyer projects as a 2, Stewart as an ace. Our chances for a 1-2 in the 2014 draft are very good. Ryan has been back 25 months.
