  1. This team as currently constructed cannot win the WS....they can be a competitive team but will be an early exit from the playoffs.....So I would be open to trading anyone you get value for......until we can get some home grown stud pitchers, since we won't go get one on the open Market...we need to keep kicking it down the road....if you get value for anyone you trade add young talent and see if it can develop.....pitching, pitching....pitching.......
  2. I was hoping for a .500 season....with the start...thinking now over .500 by a few games.....85-86 wins.....other good point is the division is a hot mess...White Sox cannot play defense...DT and KC..yuk.....and the Indians (always will be) under .500.....so some easy wins there.... Sano gone for a few months will help....but it all comes down to pitching.
  3. we have to all hope Correa opts out for a long term contract....that means he was healthy and had a good year.....same spot as I have been with this contract all along....best for the twins if this is only a 1 year deal....the longer it goes..means he has underperformed...and we are stuck with an asset that isn't worth what he is being paid.
  4. They need to sit him down for a week to 10 days...... Last night was just one more reason.......has a terrible night at the plate, only getting on because Grossman is a subpar fielder....then in his oblivious state.....makes a terrible base running error...not once but twice.....watch the play.....going first to second.....then trying to push and go to third....this guys head is not in the game.....loads of talent..no discipline.......just want to slap him upside the head to wake him up...... But bailed out by two terrible defensive plays....lucky our division cannot play defense..... cannot have your starting 1st baseman hitting under .100........time to sit him down.
  5. To me this all comes down to Correa....if he is only here 1 yr...then that deal is a A.....if 2 yr's then a B and if by some chance he is here for all three, then we did not get value.....so a D....... Dumping Donaldson was an A......getting back relatively minor contracts but losing catching depth.......still ok with.... This team will not compete for playoffs....so hopefully a couple of these guys will have some value at the trade deadline.....play the young guys and look forward to 23 and 24...... Archer was a good dart throw, for the price worth taking the chance on the guy. Roll out the balls and lets get the season going. Let's shoot for .500 baseball......
  6. Correa is hopefully a one yr rental....the shorter his contract the better for the team. (he over performs and opts out for a long term deal, somewhere else)......if we see all three years (means he did not exceed contract) so this buys the Twins a one year window to get Lewis MLB ready.
  7. A - if one year deal.....means he had a great year and is hitting the open market to look for a long term deal.... B - if a two year deal....means poor play or injury....in yr 1 c - if 3 yr deal...means he did not live up to his contact...and rode it out for the money...... Hoping it's a 1 yr deal and he has a great yr...then goes and signs for 10 yrs somewhere else!
  8. don't waste money on these guys...this season is a throw away anyways....save the $'s and get a real budget for next year....
  9. to me the logical spot for him is platooning w Donaldson between 3rd and DH......give them both some time out of the field..and keep their bats in the lineup.
  10. nothing wrong w Cave...but nothing special about him either....trading for a 4th outfielder just never a wise thing to do. Surprised he has hung around as long as he has w the Twins...... Twins just can't seem to develop Pitching or identify when they have a chance to do something......
  11. hopefully he earns all 29.75.....would mean good things for the Twins, and Him!!
  12. Wade is a replacement level player....so getting anything for him that can help at the major league level is a good deal. Hope he does well in SF....ready for the the season!!
  13. guessing if they can get Odo for 10mil would keep salaries manageable...and lock in another started. 1 yr deal....maybe a mutual option.
  14. those who admitted to using Illegal/banned I put differently than those who use prior to testing and those who are suspected of using....... Without the proof opens a slippery slope.....but for me Bonds, AROD...not a chance...AROD specifically suspended...why would you take after the whole first round, then testing.....WOW.... Should not allowed to be around the game....as bad as Rose betting on baseball....broke the written rules......you are out of consideration.
