Over the off-season there will be PLENTY of chatter about the Twins. They're primed to be BOLD and make a YUGE splash in free agency.

Ugh, yeah, I wouldn't mind passing on that deal. Woof.

If anyone is going to reporting this type of stuff, it'd probably be Wolfson, not Reusse. Old Pat would be ripping the front office left and right in that article.

10/14: Jim Pohlad quoted in a Sid Hartman column "there will be no restrictions on payroll">>>>>>>> For some reason I thought I had read this quote from one of Sid's previous columns, so I looked back. I found it in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015............................... 1964, 1963, 1962, and 1961. While I assme it was Calvin and Carl who issued the earlier quotes, the fact that the Twins have always been a family run enterprise may explain the fact that Sid has never quoted ownership in full. The words "to family members" was either consciously omitted, or in a more likely scenario Sid didn't have his hearing aid turned all the way up? :).

Twins lose OF Luke Raley in Rule 5 draft. Twins Daily faithful fills 15 pages of comments that it's the worst thing ever to lose Luke Raley.

 

(chuckle) I think it's most fun to poke fun both at the Twins and also at ourselves!
