  1. Again, Buxton is a career .247 hitter. He’s passed 50 RBI’s ONCE. He’s surpassed 20 stolen bases ONCE. He’s surpassed 80 games played ONCE. He’s a LOT closer to Billy Hamilton than Mookie Betts, yet he wants Betts money. The Twins can’t/won’t/shouldn’t give him that kind of money. Time to trade him for some even better pitching prospects.
  2. Buxton is a career .247 hitter. He has only reached 50 RBI’s ONCE. He has only reached 20 stolen bases ONCE. He has only played 80 games ONCE. He is a LOT closer to Billy Hamilton than Mookie Betts. Despite this, he (and a lot of people on forums) seem to think he’s worth $30-35M per. I just can’t see a 1/4 of the payroll sitting on the bench for over half the year.
  3. I would have been happy with a bag of chips for Happ or Robles if they paid their salary.
  4. Strom and Gausman ARE Berríos. Look at their stats. Solid #3 starters. I think Berríos wants $25M+ per year. No way.
  5. The Twins have already made an overly generous offer. He is a career .247 hitter and his yearly war is just 3.0. They offered him more than the Yanks gave Hicks. Berríos apparently wants $25M per year. Was nothing learned from the Mauer contract?
  6. The Twins will get one top 100 prospect for Berríos. His career numbers have him as a middle rotation reliable guy. We either trade him or Buxton. There’s no chance they sign both. Time to pull that fire alarm.
  7. I think the folks on here have vastly overrated Arraez and Polanco’s value. A “haul” for either one? I just don’t see that happening.
  8. I would go 6/100 on Berrios. Put him on a good team, and he’s a #3. I don’t think he would take 5/100 anyway. He’s looking for 5/150. Buxton will never get $100M from the Twins. Just not durable enough, and the sting of the Mauer contract is still to recent. I’m afraid the best move is to trade both at some point with predictable consequences. The Twins cycle.
  9. They take a guy who hasn’t thrown out of the pen his entire career and call him up and call him out of the pen vs the Yankees? That should do well for his confidence. No wonder he got shelled like a peanut.
  10. This team is MUCH less than the sum of it’s parts. That usually means management.
  11. “I would offer Berrios 5/$110 this offseason.”. For a #3? Never going to happen. 3 years $45M tops.
  12. The next night it was remarked on the broadcast that in the past 20 years,(over 500 instances) when a team was up by 10+ and a batter had a 3-0 count, Mercedes is the ONLY one who had swung. Classless.
