    Twinsrule1991 got a reaction from Florida Flash in What To Do With Miguel Sano   
    Aren't we just all tired of the same old ******** year in and year out? It's just exhausting. I get that he is an above average player, but his game is borderline unwatchable after all these years and it might be best for both sides to just have a clean break, hopefully as soon as the trade deadline. Not sure we can get much for him, but anything is something I guess.

    It's not only the ticket prices, it's the amount they charge for all the other items at the ballpark (not to mention the absurd fees). I am completely over paying $15 for a shitty Bud Light to watch a team that will struggle to win 81 games this year. Not gonna rip others for doing it, but it just ain't for me.

    MLB - this is pathetic.  The game no longer sells itself.  And I know because I will not attend a game that is going to take 3 1/2 or more hours and have no action.  Go out for a hotdog when the HR is hit and you miss the only action of the game so you watch a replay on the jumbo tron - how does this differ from staying home and watching on tv with a dozen replays?  
    The game is killing itself.  I hope the statheads are happy.  You were right, but in the long run, who cares?  Joey Gallo hitting cleanup - his average is actually up this year - he is hitting .200.  Wonderful  He hit 150 last year and the Yankees have him batting fourth!  Imagine Mantle, Maris, Berra...seeing this.  I am so sad.  
    How about your money back if the team stinks?  Lose and you get 20% back, lose by more than 3 and it is 50%.  Lose my 5 or more and the game is free. 
    Or better yet - everytime a new RP comes in you get another 10%.

    Three years of team control doesn't matter for Paddack is he doesn't start pitching a whole lot better. I'm excited for his potential. It could be a big win for the Twins if he improves. But yeah the fact is he hasn't been good the last two years and the team control doesn't matter if he pitches like that.
    Losing Rogers sucks but isn't shocking. Definitely need one of the young guys to step up in the bullpen

    This trade doesn't move the needle and our bullpen is significantly worse. The margins for error on this team are too thin to expect anything come October except for a front office change, especially when our bullpen looks like this.

    They may as well start looking for teams interested in Correa now. They can’t win with this pen. Why would they want two years of control of Pagan?

    Hey, look at that. This rotation has gone from making me want to gouge my eyes out with a fork to now only wanting to spoon them out with a wooden ladle. Long way to go if they have any desire to sniff postseason play, but I guess this is a start.

    Personally, not excited about this move. Seen this "magical-fix-for-fading-veteran" schtick one too many times. Would rather put my money on one of our many supposed "prospects" who are clogging up the minors. Time to fish or cut bait.

    This rotation could absolutely implode this year. 
    Gray - Least likely but age could start to show
    Bundy - Oh boy...... this could be bad
    Joe Ryan - Should be fine but homers could become a problem
    Ober - Who knows, these guys seem to get figured out at some point
    Archer - Complete wild card. 
    None of these guys really scream to me that we have a stopper, or even a good #2. Seems like 3 #3 starters and two #5's (generously so).... God I hope I am wrong but won't be shocked if the Twins are really bad in the pitching department.

    I think the Twins front office might still be stinging a little, over the 2021 starting pitching pick ups, that ended up being complete busts......Shoemaker & Happ come to mind. The only free agents left out there are more than likely, more of the same. There are arms in the minors, that might be able to help in July and beyond. The challenge might be, staying competitive until then.

    The ability to be flexible and pivot is fine, but if the results are the same as previous, does it even matter? I think they definitely work in a unique way, but that hasn't led to any meaningful success, which is why we are all here in the first place.

    flexibility doesn't equal long term success.  It might mean we are a .500 plus team this year.  That would be improvement and the front office keeps it's job.  I guess it depends on what you are looking for.

    Was just wondering if anyone has heard from or knows what's up with Derek Wetmore? He kind of disappeared after the Twins playoff games last year and has not been active on social media or his podcast since. He makes great content, but I am also wondering if he is ok in general. Just want to make sure he is alright. Thanks.
