Okay, I'm not piling on Dan here, I love his work and you should subscribe to The Athletic. In a piece this morning, he quoted some Twins management and sources about what they plan to do in the wake of Correa going to the Giants. And a lot of it is rational, useful information. But holy Moses did this quote stick in my craw:
Alternatively, a team source said some current free-agent targets include veteran hitters Justin Turner, Joey Gallo and A.J. Pollock.
I mean, what? This is the team that traded Gio Urshela earlier this offseason. Justin Turner is a fine player, I guess, but he's the only name on that list that doesn't make me reel in horror.
My suggestion to Twins officials: if those are the names you're going to mention, don't mention any names.
Anyway, go read the piece, there's interesting information contained within that didn't make me dizzy and nauseous.
