East Coast Twin's Achievements

  1. This week's episode of Freakonomics Radio talks about Moneyball and the analytics revolution. https://freakonomics.com/podcast/did-michael-lewis-just-get-lucky-with-moneyball/
  2. I wonder if the Pohlad family has ever used the code "Gleeman" when purchasing something.
  3. Clubs draft in reverse order of the standings from the previous season. Twins and Red Sox tied for the thirteenth lowest winning percentage in 2022. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/rule-5-draft
  4. Owner John Sherman proposes to build a $2B stadium, entertainment district in or near downtown Kansas City. https://www.kshb.com/sports/royals-to-leave-kauffman-stadium-seek-2b-plan-for-stadium-entertainment-district-in-missouri
  5. I still have 500 riel from a trip I took to Cambodia decades ago. Carlos can have that too. Hopefully he doesn't check the exchange rate.
  6. According to MLB.com, Varland was sent down to AAA today.
  7. La Velle E Neal states that there have been at least two "reports" that Correa has decided to opt out after this season. La Velle doesn't identify the sources though. https://www.startribune.com/carlos-correa-35-1-million-contract-hasn-t-done-enough-lavelle-neal/600199934/
  8. MLB's latest offer is a hard $181 million in guaranteed spending, with each team unable to exceed their allocated limit. The union wants at least $260 million guaranteed, with teams allowed to exceed their limits up to 20% before incurring a loss of a draft pick. The deadline for a potential agreement is 25 July. MLB has offered to get rid of the qualifying offer system for impending free agents if a draft agreement can be reached. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34249909/sources-mlb-mlbpa-remain-80m-apart-international-draft-money
  9. Last year, the Astros sent Alex Bregman on a second rehab assignment when the team concluded he wasn't ready at the end of his initial 20-day rehab window. He had to sit out five days and then began the second assignment. That's another possibility for Sano, depending on how he progresses. https://www.mlb.com/news/alex-bregman-set-for-minor-league-rehab-assignment
  10. Pitchers have up to thirty days for a rehab assignment. Those recovering from Tommy John can receive up to three additional ten day extensions.
  11. And the years before and after the Twins took Gorden, they selected Kohl Stewart and Tyler Jay with the fourth and sixth overall picks. So yes it could definitely be worse.
  12. Sano begins his rehab assignment today. https://www.mlb.com/news/twins-injuries-and-roster-moves
  13. Dan Hayes says Johnson's status for the rest of the season is not yet known.
  14. The Guardian's radio announcer Tom Hamilton a few days ago ripped Sano for being "fat." Perhaps that's what you heard. Or perhaps there now multiple sources. https://larrybrownsports.com/baseball/cleveland-announcer-tom-hamilton-miguel-sano-fat/599446
