    Fun stretch of games.  Too bad they screwed the pooch long ago making it meaningless.  Not sure I'm happy to see what might have been, but winning baseball is definitely more fun regardless.

    Some thoughts on this most interesting time for Twins Fans:
    I like Berrios and/or Rogers to the Dodgers.  They need both of them, and they have good pitching talent to trade.  Any discussion would have to start with Gray, who just made his MLB debut.
    I like Pineda and/or Simmons to the Mets.  They don't want commitments for next year, but need SS help with Lindor's injury and starting pitching from Big Mike.  Make them pay, quality over quantity please.
    Robles and/or Happ should be able to fetch a lottery ticket from someone.  Colome, not so much.
    I would retain Donaldson unless someone gives a great offer, and the same for Buxton.  Don't want to trade at low value from Buxton, and STILL want to try and sign him to some type of creative contract this off-season.
    Simple!  :)

    Sadly looking at the updated prospect list at least from the sportingnews, none of the contenders have the top 5- 10 overall prospect that I would require for Berrios. If I am giving Berrios and his 1 1/2 of control and the option to negotiate with him, I want a sure fire major league player, somebody like, Jimenez, Torres, Robles, Kopech, Buehler, Bichette not a bunch of players to fill out the prospect lists.
    Also I agree with you I don't want any pitcher that is already a relief pitcher for Berrios or Rogers, the odds that a starter they get will end up being a relief pitcher anyway.

    I know this is the equivalent of spitting into the wind, and I am probably showing my age, but you need to get major league talent for Berrios, not AA prospects no matter what number you attach to them.  That level of starting pitching in MLB is simply too rare to not get something current in return, especially with a bidding war going on.  Talk to a team with a deep bullpen and get a decent arm back, then talk about AA guys.

    Can't agree with either of the Berrios trades.  Forget the second piece leaving the Twins, the Twins should be asking about the return you suggest just for Jose...or more.  He's the best pitcher available this July, he is a near ACE, he is young, durable and you have him for almost a year and a half.  That's gonna cost you your #1 prospect, plus, plus.
    Wasn't it interesting what the Twins just got for Cruz after many were suggesting they would get little in return?

    The Twins got 2 decent pitching prospects, including one who was rated #98 overall in 2020, for a 41 year old DH on an expiring deal. As one of one the better relief pitchers in baseball consistently for the past 6 seasons and still with 1 1/2 years of control, Taylor Rogers should have a bit more trade value than as just a throw-in as it seems in deals #1 and especially #2.

    As someone who feared Cruz was at the end when signed by the Twins, what a ride.  Fantastic stay at Target Field by a better person.
    But these two pitchers appear to be a bigger return than any of us could have hoped for.  And they both are very good starting pitchers.  Hooorah!

    Sad to see Nelly go but he deserves to be on a winner. These two pitchers look very intriguing! You know Tampa knows how developed their pitchers, hopefully we reap the rewards!
