    I haven’t watched every inning of every game, but based on my observation, any metric that suggests Miranda is a better fielder than Urshela currently, should be discarded immediately.

    Prospects are the currency of trades for contenders to trade for established major leaguers.
    I don’t really get where trading away established major leaguers improves a contending team.

    With a LHP they decided not to play Arraez but have Gordon play SS. Why not keep Palacios up at least one more day?

    He's played SS for approximately the last 20 years. It's been 8 days.

    Well looks like Gordon will be our shortstop.  Inspite of many calling to cut ties with him and dealing him unnecessary.  Probably the same ones calling for Lewis to be called up to play any position.  I know hindsight is 20/20.  But, lots of short sighted takes on here.  He could have been filling in for Correa tomorrow.  Sometimes the loudest voices are the wrong ones.

    Weird how things work out.  A few short months ago there were many opinions demanding Miranda to be playing in the majors and some suggesting Lewis was a wash out.  Now, many are ready to give up on Miranda and believe Lewis is a sure bet.

    yeahyabetcha reacted to 4twinsJA in Can a Short King Triumph? Luis Arraez Goes to First Base   
    I like Lewis as much as anybody, but given his limited playing time the last 2 years, he needs to play everyday. When Correa comes back, Lewis likely back to AAA. 
    Arraez's fielding seems to have regressessed this year, can hide that somewhat at 1B, but he should not whiff at groudballs within his limited range.
    There was a play this weekend where Miranda had the wrong foot on 1B and could not stretch very far for a throw from Sanchez, was reviewed and still got the out. But if Miranda had played correctly, there would have been no question. Hate to see playing inexperienced 1B come back to bite the Twins at a key moment. Hopefully somehow Kirilloff's wrist cooperates and he comes back up to play 1B and Arraez back to primary DH. Kirilloff seems to be best defensive 1B Twins have.

    yeahyabetcha reacted to Seansy in Gilberto Celestino Demonstrating Big-League Value   
    I think calling him a 4th outfielder sells him short on both his prospect pedigree and production. He was never a global top 100 guy but as a big bonus international signing with good success in the minors he projected somewhere between a glove first back up CF if he couldn't keep up hitting to an either average or above average CF starter depending on his hitting. He should be treated as the primary back up CF to Buxton when he's out but one that also plays regularly against LHP in the corners with Garlick to give Max and Trevor an occasional day off. That should give him plenty of PA to maintain his hitting approach and be successful contributing to the team.

    yeahyabetcha got a reaction from Squirrel in What should be done with Lewis when Correa returns?   
    If the Twins are contenders this year and they are currently in first place.  I think a strong argument could be made for a starting infield of Krilliloff, Polanco, Correa, Urshela and use Arraez, Miranda and Gordon as the reserves.  Lewis would be in St Paul.

    I would send him back to The Saints to play SS full time, with the goal of him being the 2023 opening day starter for the Twins.

    Pitching wise the Twins look to have plenty of options.  As far as position players, getting Buxton, Correa, Arraez, Larnach and Garlick all back and healthy would help the most.

    It's not helping Kirilloff or the team for him to be with the Twins right now. As soon as some semblance of order is restored with the roster, AK needs to either go on the IL or be optioned to St. Paul.
