  1. I was very impressed with Gordon. If he can't make our lineup next year it means we are going to have one hell of a team. I say Gordon sticks around for a few years ..
  2. So, I would have taken the lowest rated player in the Yankee system just to save Simmons salary the rest of the year .. Trading him was a no brainer, not to mention you would have been doing a good thing for Simmons as he would have joined a play-off contender. That's why I don't think this rumor is true. It would have made too much logic not to trade him.
  3. We have had so many top minor leaguers on the DL this year. I think a good article on this site would be to post all players who will need to be protected on the 40 man roster. Then we can evaluate who needs to make the list and where Colina would have slotted. Only way we can truly evaluate this move. But yes, it was a surprising move worthy of discussing.
  4. Let's face it. The only reason the trade might look good is because we didn't want to pay Pressley what he would command. Alcala has a chance to settle the score but keeping and signing Pressley would have been far superior. Look at all the troubles we have had with closers since the trade. As for Celestino I can't get excited about him with Buxton, Kirilloff, Larnach and Kepler. One or both of Lewis and Martin are going to wind up in the outfield and Gordon has much more versatility if you want someone without a lot of power.. And what about Wallner who is only a couple of years away from the majors. This has become a homerun league and I prefer home run hitting outfielders unless they can carry a high batting average and can cover a lot of ground. To me, Celestino is nothing more than trade bait.
  5. 129 AB .. 58 SO .. .163 BA .. Average fielder and below average speed on the base paths.. I swear to god, if Sano shortened his swing and tried to hit line drives he would end up hitting 40 balls over the fence by accident and strike out significant less ..
  6. I don't think those would be the guys. More like: Happ, Shoemaker, Colome, Sano, Kepler By the way, not trying to be mean but lose the RED Bars on the front page. They look hideouts. Total distraction JMHO
  7. Waddell should NOT be sent back to the Saints ... He should be outright released!
  8. It's all about service time with Kirilloff. I predict that once we can hold his rights for an extra year he will be up which supposedly is sometime around the end of April. I would think they would wait until he has a couple weeks under his belt at triple A so maybe towards the end of May? I would cut or trade Cave at that point so that he can play full time.
  9. i've got 4 words. Kirilloff, Larnach, Duran, Balazovic Give it until May and if they can't get out of their slump call all 4 up. This team needs new blood and they are the future. Trade Sano, cut Shoemaker and Cave, and demote Dobnak so he can get back on track. Poor kid's mind must have been blown with that new contract .. At least that would get me Excited about watching the play again,
  10. I think the Twins needed these days off to get their heads screwed back on straight ..
  11. Biggest sign we're back to the 2019 Can't score when the bases are loaded Shaping up to be a good year!
  12. Cave is a clog in the rookie call up wheel. Hope the Twins unclog that wheel and send Cave down the river soon. I am not a fan of his ..
  13. Really happy for a fine young man and the Twins made a great deal. But I'm really curious about the escalators. Hopefully there is a way for him to make a fair salary if he develops into something solid ,,
  14. The way I see it Rooker's spring bat and the lack of Krilloff's gives the Twins what they want. A good excuse to leave Krilloff at triple A the first month and gain an extra year of service. I bet management is thrilled! And Rooker appears to be the real deal so if I was Jake Cave I'd me looking for a new domicile ..
