  1. Unsurprising really, but it's the first news I've seen of... anything... in the past 36 hours or so. If there's that much interest in Jose, it's going to be hard to walk away from the best team's best offer. And I'm increasingly okay with that, really. If the Twins can't keep Berríos, and it seems really unlikely they can if they have to compete directly with the likes of the Yankees in a strict financial sense. If they can acquire an elite A+ or AA pitching prospect plus more, it's probably the right decision for the organization. https://www.startribune.com/as-trade-deadline-nears-twins-getting-plenty-of-calls-on-jose-berrios/600082567/?refresh=true
  2. More on Kepler to the Yankees. It makes a ton of sense from both sides.
  3. I don’t think San Diego can afford to do this. They already looted the middle of their strong farm system, this also loots the upper end of it.
  4. It would be rather silly not to do this. That allows the team to punt on the next 16 months and then come back extremely strong afterward. It minimizes downtime and gives a strong several year upward trend in its wake. And the Twins still have Taylor Rogers and possibly Max Kepler to trade and add to the farm.
  5. That was fun while it lasted, given how the Twins are allergic to the ninth inning.
  6. The Twins have the most moveable assets of any team in baseball and their MLBTR page hasn't updated in 24 hours. So bored. Something happen, please.
  7. I refuse to vote because I can't choose both options.
  8. I literally mentioned that in the next paragaph you didn't quote. And the responsible journalist lists the option *every* time and does not count it, even if the option is 99% sure to go one direction. Again, none of this makes the article "not smart". If you aren't interested in it, move on.
  9. He listed four free agents + Colome, who technically has an option. It's called out right there. You're being pedantic about this. The meat of the interesting information about the Twins is in potential 40-man additions to start the offseason, yet you're focusing on a one-digit-off addition error and pending free agents. If you don't care for the information in the article, so be it. But that doesn't make it "not smart". It's talking about a few different things, not all of which apply to every team on the list. The Twins don't have an immediate 40-man issue because they're selling, that's pretty obvious. Other teams have more pressing 40-man issues in the here and now. Longenhagen is using the same article format for each team, that's all.
  10. It's not saying anyone is "in trouble", the article is taking a snapshot of organizations and showing things that will factor into their decisions for the next six months. And these 40-man roster additions absolutely factor into many of the decisions that will be made between today and next February. There isn't anything misleading or not smart about giving relevant information to the audience.
  11. Eric Longenhagen is one of the most respected prospect writers in baseball. The 60-day IL is reset for the offseason, which this article is factoring into its numbers and "crunch".
  12. Could this be a convincing argument to either sign a high profile (read "expensive") free agent or don't bother at all? I know this franchise has a long, storied history of signing the Matt Shoemakers and Ramon Ortizes of the world but I'm okay with ending that particular historical trend for pretty much forever.
  13. The chance of moving Rogers after the injury is basically zero. Mostly ditto for Buxton if you want great value for him.
  14. While I've been critical of the front office lately for a variety of things, I don't think this one is on them... they moved Cruz very early so they're willing to make a deal if the deal is right. And the entire market has been very slow, not just the Twins.
  15. Very possible.

  16. I'm constantly surprised how little noise there is around Pineda this deadline. While he's not a flashy pickup, he's a strike-throwing beast that many teams would be happy to start their fourth playoff game (and a few teams where he might start their third).
  17. It's possible this organization has just rolled natural ones an inordinate number of times over the past 12 months but with every passing day and another mistake piles up, that becomes increasingly unlikely. Not impossible, but very unlikely.
  18. It's not much fun that every CBO/GM keeps hitting the snooze button on this deadline.

  19. I'm really glad the Twins moved Cruz so early because it appears they're having difficulty convincing anyone else to bite well ahead of the deadline... which is something of a nightmare scenario for this team, as they have the most moveable commodities on the entire market. On top of their expiring player contracts, they are certainly fielding calls on the likes of Donaldson, Berríos, Buxton, Kepler, and possibly others. And if no one is willing to sign off on a deal before tomorrow, that's going to make it really hard for the Twins to maximize their value on any of their players, which makes it all the more likely none of those non-expiring contracts are moved. It's hard to envision the Twins receiving good value on Donaldson with Bryant still on the market, for example. Or Berríos with Scherzer still on the market. Etc etc. On top of not receiving maximum value, it becomes a quantity and clock issue at some point. If no one is ready to make a deal before tomorrow, how reasonable is it for the Twins to be able to negotiate and move 4+ players in a single day? Here's hoping someone pulls the trigger on at least one Twins player today and gets the ball rolling on this. The next 36 hours could be the most important this front office has faced since taking over the organization.
  20. A grand slam? Bring in the Twins bullpen now, we want to keep this game close.
  21. Well, that's close to a surefire way to block a trade. Well played, Taylor, well played.* *just kidding, get well soon, Taylor https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/07/twins-closer-taylor-rogers-finger-sprain-trade-deadline-injury.html
