    bunsen82 got a reaction from wabene in Twins Minor League Report (8/8): A Big Promotion and Draftees Shine   
    The asked Falvey to name some prospects that have impressed them and could help in the future and he only named Varland.  Said he would be helping the team sooner rather than later.

    On the interview this weekend they stated how much they like Varland,  essentially insinuated he may be up with the big league team at the end of the season.

    Since when is a 3-4 WAR player considered a poor player?  If Correa hits 4 WAR he will be worth 34 million dollars.   No offense this is pretty good productions.  Point two is check out Correa stats.  He historically has an excellent season followed by a good to great season.  This seems to follow that trend.  If we can get an extra season out of this contract all the better.

    I'd take 3 of 5 out there in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, I'm not that optimistic about our chances. I'm thinking more along the lines of a 1-4 trip.

    But he is playing to his contract and people are acting like he is playing poor.  He is not playing poor, He is still likely in the top 15% of all players, he is just not in the top 1-2% like he has had in a few seasons.  A lot of things have to go right to get those types of seasons.

    Falvey was I’m MLB on XM.  Few tidbits.
    They view Mahle as a middle of the rotation starter. I thought they higher hopes for him. 
    Duran will be the reliever used in high leverage points at any time in the game.  Larnach and Maeda are the players most likely to get healthy and help in the home stretch in Sept.  A prospect they really like is Varland and stated he may help out sooner rather than later. Also talked about trading Povich an Steer.  Also How well Miranda and Gordon are playing really well.

    Correa is on track to a 4 WAR Season.  At $8.5 million per a WAR he hits a 4 War season and he met his contract.  No offense,  that is one hell of a season.  Even if it isn't as good as last years.  When you are shooting for one of the highest contracts in history though,  it might be slightly below what you want to go into free agency with.

    Beyond the trades the most interesting thing of the trade deadline is Correa.  He is engaged, passionate and seems to want what is best for the organization.  The fact he was not only lobbying for players to trade for but now has vouched for Miranda twice this season, once to keep him up with the big league team when he struggled and now to say he doesn’t want him traded. He appears to be playing the long game with the Twins and doesn’t seem to want to leave any time soon which is fantastic.   If so I would love to be a fly on the wall at the end of the season.  The best option may be for Correa to not opt out and remain on the team.  Honestly with Lewis injured and rehabbing this would be a great outcome.  We have a long way to go on this but needless to say I am pleasantly surprised.

    bunsen82 got a reaction from LiamC in Roundtable: How Do You Feel about the Twins Deadline Day Deals?   
    It has been reported the twins coveted Mahle more than any other pitcher on the market.  Whether due to his lower cost or the expectation he may be as good or better than Castillo or Montas.  Mahle cost quite a bit but we have the option of giving him a qualifying offer and if he does as well as we think he will that would turn into a pick at the end of the first round.  Or we get him for another year.  So right now we are looking at 1 year 2 months and a future end of the first round draft pick, or 2 years and 2 months for Mahle.  That is a pretty good return. 
    I truly think the twins think he is an ACE.  We will see if that comes to fruition or not.  As to Lopez,  this current version of him,  he is a stud.  7 pitches 3 up 3 down.  I was talking with my uncle yesterday and he thought I needed to know what a closers roll is since we haven't had one since Molitor left :).   It was refreshing to not load the bases and hope we can get out of the inning by the skin of out teeth.  Lopez for 2+ years for 1 solid prospect, and older reliever with control issues and 2 flyers seems like a very good deal for the Twins.  
    Fulmer for a player potential at risk in the rule V draft works out very well for the Twins.  Its another reliable arm to spread out the stress and responsibilites. 
    If Maeda can make it back and be a solid reliever in the bullpen,  the bullpen is suddenly a strength of the team. 
    The trades made help as much for next year as this year.  The cherry on top may be that Correa seems to be really invested in this team and organization.  There is more of a possibility he may be willing to either not opt out or take a team friendly deal ( I use this term loosely).  This puts the ball in managements court on how they want to attack next years team,  but if Correa stays,  we will have likely one of the top 5-6 teams in MLB and a legit shot at the World Series.

    This is it, but I will add that Correa has a clutch/playoff rep and he may well rise to the occasion as the season wears on and accumulate impressive value.
