    Trading away Steer and CES for an injured pitcher has to be in the "special considerations" category.  Huge mistake IMO.

    Five minute major got a reaction from Dennesey55347 in 4 Reasons the 2022 Season is More Frustrating Than 2021   
    It was frustrating in that it was obvious fairly early on that this team was not that good.   A very easy schedule to start the season compounded by playing in the weakest division in baseball gave some fans a false sense of what this team's destiny was going to be.    Once they started playing harder teams, the true skill level of this team was evidenced.   For me, the trade deadline was an absolute failure, particularly  in what we gave up for Mahle.  That trade will haunt down the road.

    I am terrified that CES is going to be the next David Ortiz for Twins fans.  I am convinced he is going to be something special.

    Great step for Balazovic. He needs to get right and I believe he will. Still think the early knee issue and late start just messed with his mechanics and then with his head. I still consider him a top prospect unless he proves otherwise in 2023. I expect a huge turnaround. 
    Losing CES in trade stunk because I think his bat has a chance to be pretty special, and I saw him as a possible replacement for Kirilloff at 1B if AK's wrist doesn't come round. But low and behold, Williams is having a monster year, best one of his career, and at 2 different levels. Good timing to break out!

    I will not judge this until the end of the season.  What you have written at the end of the six game losing streak instead of the four game winning streak?  Boston and SF both have worse records than we do.  So for me I am celebrating the streak, but trying of perspective and it is hard to keep day to day.  I do like your enthusiasm and positivity.

    Obviously Sano is gone. Obviously Grey is signed.  And it should be obvious that Bundy is gone.  With the expected departure of CC, the Twins will have plenty of money to add another top tier starter to compliment Grey, Ryan, and Mahle.  Adding a legit #1 (Correa's money will get you that) gives the Twins an imposing top 4.  Royce Lewis has proven himself MLB ready and can slide right into SS when he is healthy which should not be too late into the season.

    No more sano  ....
    Pick up option  ,,,, Gray is adequate  and in the price range for a #2 starter , not sure I would extend him as he has injury issues  and hasn't shown enough to me to extend him , he's had a steadycareer ... 
    Bundy  , first free agent pitcher the twins signed before the lock out and everyone was beside themselves and I was one of them   ...
    Actually  I have come to like Bundys bulldog composure , yes he doesn't throw above 90 but man the guy gives it everything he's got ... I don't think Bundy is worth  11 million  , buy him out for 1 million  and renegotiate  a 5 million  deal  for depth ,  otherwise  let him go  ...
    Bye bye sano

    Low point?  This team is an average team at best and has been all year.   They benefitted early on from a very easy schedule playing in the weakest division in baseball.  I am not sure how anybody thought this team was going anywhere this year.  We gutted our farm system out of desperation and our going to regret it down the road.

    Five minute major reacted to Nashvilletwin in Could Carlos Correa Opt Back in for 2023?   
    Based on his play this year, the odds of him securing a truly attractive long term deal - 7-10 years at $30MM + - have diminished. So what are his logical choices?
    A. Stay with the Twins for $35MM and look to improve upon his performance so to get a better long term deal in ‘24.
    B. Opt out and get something around 5 years at $30MM.
    C. Twins add an extra year at $35MM and give him another opt out option after ‘24.
    I think the Twins maybe do C. but I don’t see them offering B.
    Having said that, $35MM buys A LOT of relief pitching and we still have Palacios and Lewis manning SS with Miller and Lee on deck.
    It very well could could just come down to Correas’s choice and the Twins accept it either way.

    Five minute major reacted to bighat in Roundtable: How Do You Feel about the Twins Deadline Day Deals?   
    I think they did OK.
    We have to remember that here in 2022, Mahle is going to probably only pitch in - at most - 10 games for this team. If the Twins go 5-5 during those games, do we consider this a good trade? Getting him for next year is great, but in order for this to be a good trade for 2022, we're going to need Mahle to go 6-7 innings per start and the Twins need to go 7-3 or 8-2 when he is on the mound. Is that realistic?
    The bullpen guys I'm fine with, good additions, same goes for the catcher.
    Honestly I think the Twins (and many fans) are denying the problems that this team has on offense. Of course, the pitching has been so horrific that it's hard to blame anyone for that. But I really think to have a chance at a successful season, the Twins needed to add a bat and they didn't do it. And they probably couldn't do it, because they have nobody left to trade.

    Wow.   We gave up way too much for him. I think Christian Encarnacion Strand is going to be a stud at the MLB level iin a few years.  But this team, which is going nowhere in the playoffs, was pressured into this by short sighted fans and media.   At least there is a couple years of control but I think we are going to rue the day we gave away CES.   I understand that you have to pay for a pitcher like this but this was too much.
