  1. It sounds good in principal but McCutchen hasn't had significant R/L splits in most years. In 2019 and 2022, his splits were negligible. In 2021, they were enormous. I don't think he's a particularly good platoon candidate.
  2. You’re crazy. He’s cooked. I watched him A LOT in 2022 and there was nothing to indicate he’s a guy I want on a team I follow.

  7. Pretty much every good team is doing the same thing to mediocre starters so no, this will not factor into a free agent decision. Also, Rocco is not the person making these decisions. If there is a problem with methodology, and there isn’t, any free agent choice will not factor in Baldelli, it will factor in the front office.
  8. I'm relatively confident that last number is higher based on what I've heard rumbling about over the past week. Which makes me think the first two numbers are probably higher, too.
  9. Yes and no. They run a payroll well above other TRULY small market teams but they have a lot of contract obligations right now. This off-season is really interesting for them as they juggle what to do with a roster that’s aging through arb while working through the fact their payroll doesn’t have much headroom.
  10. It's hard to get a read on what the Brewers are doing here. On one hand, that looks like a large underpay for Renfroe. On the other hand, if there's one team that can't properly evaluate and develop pitching, it's the Angels and if there's one team that can properly evaluate and develop pitching, it's the Brewers.
  11. Frankly, you're wrong. I've made many such decisions in the past because I'm not comfortable with the decision and that decision would have been completely invisible to you. There are all sorts of options and settings I have disabled in the interest of users, their privacy, and their overall experience at Twins Daily. Again, don't assume everyone just behaves in this way because they can.
  12. And this is a problem because it’s untrue. I’m here to earn a living, not rake everyone over the coals and then bleed them dry. Assuming everyone is eager to be crappy only glosses over and emboldens the people who actually ARE doing crappy things.
  13. I mean, they'll get it in some cases but there comes a point where prices are just foolish. People are clamoring for the hot newness but that will wear off in a hurry. I'm not a big jersey guy but have considered buying a Twin Cities jersey. No way in hell is that going to happen at these price points. As I mentioned, if prices for jerseys start overlapping with premium Italian leather I've purchased in the not-so-long-ago past, things are wildly out of hand. I've spent a lot on motorcycle gear over the years. If a Twins jersey is 75% of the price of the new top-shelf carbon fibre helmet I bought just last year, the Twins are being absolutely foolish with these prices. Hell, my wife has quite nice motorcycle gear and a lot of it. I'm not sure any single piece of it cost $380, including her very nice name-brand helmet. And we're talking about state-of-the-art gear with multiple layers, triple-stitching, exotic materials, padding. etc. These prices are asinine.
  14. I'm a grown-ass man who can afford $400 for a jersey but would feel incredibly foolish doing so. That's an absurd price. I have a Ducati-branded leather motorcycle jacket from a premiere Italian gear maker that cost me $450 ten-ish years ago. And the Twins want a similar price for literally a piece of cloth? LOL okay.

  16. Search, profile pages, and feeds should now be functioning properly. If there is anything else I missed, please let me know. Thanks!
  17. I’m of the opinion that a good way to regret something is to sign a 30+ year old sketchy defensive catcher to a long term deal. I’m a solid pass on Contreras, especially given the fact he’s literally the only good catching option this off-season. Someone is going to overpay for his services because he’s the only legit option and I hope it’s not the Twins. Jeffers and someone like Narvaez is fine for 2023.
  18. I’m of the opinion they have far too much open payroll this off-season to just pass on legitimately addressing shortstop. People are overrating the likelihood of Royce Lewis becoming even a decent starting shortstop. I think he has legit tools to become a good MLB player but putting it all together at shortstop is a much higher bar than elsewhere on the field.
  19. I'll be quite angry if Option A ends up being their plan. I'm completely down with this move so long as it's meant to be Option B or C as outlined in this story. A team like the Twins will not win with Kyle Farmer as their Opening Day shortstop.
  20. Exactly this. If the Twins open 2023 with Farmer starting at short, fans should burn Target Field to the ground. But let’s wait until that actually happens. If Farmer ends up being the infield insurance policy most of us expect him him to be, this is a fine move, the kind of move I look at and say “okay, they checked a box, now what’s next?”
  21. Who brought up the Dodgers? Pretty sure I brought up the Nationals, a higher market team than the Twins but not even close to one of the elite spenders on a yearly basis. And if you keep it up with this condescending jackassery, show yourself the door or I’ll do it for you. You are completely incapable of discussing finances without being a jerk about it and you’ve been doing it for years. Enough.
  22. In 2019 the Nationals had not only one but two players making over $35m.
  23. I'm changing up how we do rumors a bit to improve SEO and draw in more users. So if you come across a new rumor you want to start a thread about, do not start it in this forum! Instead, go here: https://twinsdaily.com/minnesota-twins-free-agents-trade-rumors/ Click "Add Rumor" and type up your post (with link or tweet, as you usually would). The system will automatically post the thread into this forum with "Rumor:" prefacing the topic. Why do this? SEO and Google's general dislike of forums. I'm working really hard to draw in new users and this helps a lot. By creating this new section of the site dedicated specifically to free agent and trade rumors, I'm able to broadcast the posts across social media much more effectively, on top of Google respecting the non-forum origin of the content. But from the forum side of things, the difference to all of you is non-existent. I appreciate all of you pivoting on this a little to help the site draw in more users.
