Rumor: Rosenthal: Twins 1 of 6 teams in on Christian Vazquez

dxpavelka, I think his .206 BA last year was on abberation.  Historically, he's been a better hitter than that.  I like that Narvaez is a LH hitter and as a result, he would get the majority of the innings behind the dish.  I'm giving Jeffers one more year to prove it.  Actually, his 13.0 value on BTV means he should be dealt THIS year before his value completely craters.

Not saying he's a bad ballplayer, but why? Narvaez is 2 years younger, hits LH, has slightly better career slash line numbers, and had the same career WAR. 

If the Twins like Vazquez better, that's fine. I just don't see where he's the better choice.

Twins already have one catcher hitting .202, probably best that we go after the guy (Vazquez) who hit .274, don't you think?

Vasquez would be a solid addition and cost nothing. Yes, I would prefer Sean Murphy but Vazquez is pretty good for a pickup to split duties with Jeffers.

The dude can catch 140 games if Jeffers is a bust.  I realize he doesn't have alot of sting in his bat but a good game caller and defensive catcher who's athletic.  I lot to like about Vazquez.

Oh, I'm perfectly happy with Vasquez!

I just felt Narvaez made more immediate sense; 2yrs younger, hits LH to form a quasi-platoon with Jeffers. Despite a poor 2022, Narvaez has slightly better offensive numbers, including a bit more power. So he just felt like the guy the FO would targer, IMO.

Vasquez would be a great signing.

Sign one of them!!! ………can’t imagine either would cost more than $8-$9M/yr for 3 years.

Mets have signed their 5th starter - makes a qualifying offer for Bassitt pretty low priority for them. He was the most consistent starter on a team that win 101 games - he’s aging but don’t understand the Met’s approach with staff? TWINS should offer Bassitt $23/yr. for 3yrs.

I read N. Cruz had an eye problem for over a year……relatively recent surgery to correct. MAYBE worth a $3 million (plus $3-$4 million in incentives) contract for a year? Big upside potential for a RH DH & pinch hitter. Him or Garlick, what sounds better? Great glue guy in clubhouse.

Sign M. Fulmer for 2 yrs. at $8M/yr.

Farmer is an adequate bridge to our youth SS possibilities!

We can afford this path - get it done!!

Bassitt allows Maeda to start the year and possibly remains in the bullpen……..extend him & Gray if they are pitching well in June!

Bassitt declined the QO. Twins would still have to give up a draft pick to sign him. However I would do it. i think $23M is a little high though.

Rosenthal &/or some other professional pundit stated they thought it would take $67M total for 3 years……….went a tick higher to make it happen. If we could trade the draft pick & had to pay what some other team signed him for, we would/should do it in a heartbeat.

It ended up being $63M today. Kinda of surprised but not really since pitchers are getting massively overpaid for playing in less than a teams 20% of teams games.
