    Five minute major reacted to Otaknam in Where's Wallner?   
    Happy Wallner wasn’t included in a trade. It looks like he has the arm and athleticism to be an asset in the field, more so than Larnach. It would be good if he gets some big league at bats in September.

    D.   And the only reason this is not an F is because of fairly decent trading deadline moves, particularly the Cruz trade.
    For me, the entire Jake Cave deal is a perfect synopsis of the their inability to judge talent.  Trading away a pitcher (yes he was very young at the time) who is now MLB material and then protecting him over Lamonte Wade Jr and Baddoo.   How do MLB talent GM's miss so badly on this one.    Particularly letting Wade go over him.   Cave better be the first one released come 40 man decision time for 2022.

    So for the dubious distinction of navigating a first place team to last in a weak AL Central Division, Falvine gets rated a B.  Talk about Minnesota Nice!!!  While some apologists on this board can blame the abbreviated 2020 season, injuries, bad luck for this miserable season, what about the accountability factor?   Someone should be held responsible for what is the most disappointing season since 1961.  Pohlad is clearly delusional, or just doesn't care, but I"m surprised so many serious fans on TD  are so generous in their ratings.  Walter's article clearly illustrates the fundamental problem here - ownership is content with mediocrity, resulting in sticking with his FO picks far too long.  Yes, give Falvey one more year to right the ship, but without a clear directive from JP, how many think a quick rebound is in the offing?
