    chinmusic got a reaction from Richie the Rally Goat in What Twins records could Byron Buxton break over a full season?   
    Easily attainable, I would think.
    Surprising that the Twins have never had a 30/30 player.
    Without checking, I'm guessing that the five 30 hr bomba squad guys did not even combine for 30 stolen bases.
    A healthy Buxton might even challenge the 35/35 plateau.

    The Twins have never had a 30/30 player, seems attainable for Buxton if he remains healthy

    More likely he gets poached and goes on to win a WS with another team and everyone here starts screaming about how we gave up on him too soon

    OK I was in upper management for many years. One thing I saw was that new managers would rely to heavy on their assistants early on, sometimes to the point that I would have to move their assistants to another location to make a decision on the new managers ability to lead. I think I see a similar situation here with the Twins. Rocco came in with an established veteran team with a couple of guys (one in particular) in the clubhouse that could kind of act as his assistants. Last season he lost his bench coach, his #1 assistant, and kind of had to navigate things as he went with a new assistant. Then when he lost Cruz and Berrios he lost 2 more "assistants" that helped steer the ship. However, I was encouraged by the way he responded after the trade deadline and seemed tp step up and take more control. Though I don't always agree with his decisions I'm not his boss, if the FO doesn't agree then its up to them to communicate to him what they expect him to change in his management of the game and the players.

    He's obviously injury prone. Cut/trade him.

    Nicely done.
     
    Yes, the clock's running out. 
     
    I've felt all along that the health protocol issues were being largely overlooked. Sadly, I think that in any attempt at a baseball season (or facsimile) now, the distractions would   overwhelm the baseball. With guys testing positive, how can it even be considered?

    The Twins had a 20-12 (.625) record against the AL East. That is right in line with their .623 winning percentage. I think they would be okay. 2nd to the Yankees probably.

    All i can say is 4 years is too much for Ryu and hope he has fun pitching in that division. Balls have a tendency to fly out of all those parks.
