  1. My Family was gifted with this cool bat with Twins carved into it and a signature that says Best Wishes, ?????? No one knows who signed it. I was wondering if anyone here would know. I have attached photos of Bat and signature.
  2. Trout and Buxton in the OF and Ohtani pitching and DHing, WS HERE WE COME. I would add Kepler, Martin, Sano, Cave, Celestino and a couple more. Angles get 3 players capable of CF since they are loosing there CF. Throw in a couple of high upside low flow pitching prospects from the lower minors and some cash and I think we can get this done. Trout would have to wave his no trade clause to come her. I would move Trout off of CF when Buxton is playing, this should help with his own wear and tear. The rotation of Ohtani, Ryan, Gray, ???, should be good enough for the Playoffs don't need all five of the rotation for that. Maeda would be another Japanese player in the dugout and bull pen that may be an advantage in getting Ohtani to stick around. If we can keep Correa for the next 2 years with Miranda at 3rd and Kirilloff at 1st and Polanco at 2nd, and Arraez as SU that would be one heck of a Team.
  3. Sometimes you have to just pick a number as a starting point. 100 is a nice round number and accounts for about 4-5 10 day IL visits with Rocco's generous rest day policy. 81 would be half the games 100 games is roughly 62% of games. I know both parties would love more, but somewhere to start.
  4. I'm sure most of you have seen the article, but if not here is the link: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/08/sports/baseball/byron-buxton-twins.html
  5. I am in the position that IF the Twins extend Correa to say 8 year 240mil contract or what ever it is. Than either you trade Lewis for a haul OR you need push someone else out to make room for him and trade the other guy. The thing is if others believe Lewis is a SS and will be a good SS long term his trade value might be better as a trade piece than an above average 3B or a skilled outfielder which are easier to come across.
  6. And with the 8th pick the MN Twins pick a slugging college hitter below average fielding 1B.
  7. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/al-central-preview-the-twins-are-looking-for-a-bounce-back/ It is a part of series they are doing. Form 538: "In honor of the 2022 Major League Baseball season, which starts April 7 — and is actually a thing! — FiveThirtyEight will be focusing our attention on the most intriguing team in each division. Today we take a look at the American League Central, which had a new champ last season but whose old champ isn’t quite ready to give up the crown for good."
  8. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19VfDcfllzN6AsgZouf829ldQ9eO3ZGRU/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=113796250486978022042&rtpof=true&sd=true As of good time as ever to post a spread sheet I made about Pick performance.
  9. The only issue I have with this deal is it is essentially 1 year 35.1 mil. We will need a SS next year and if Lewis isn't the one we are in a bind again.
  10. Probably because 11 games is only 6.7% of a season so say you get 5% less out of a team than expected that would be a hair over 8 games worse. So even with worse pitching and some downgrades I would expect what happened is last year was a lot worse than expected so you have some reversion to mean performance and last years team did a lot worse than expected and we lost Berios and Cruz at the trade deadline so it isn't as if we had the whole team the entire year.
  11. Having Pick #1 is a clear advantage https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19VfDcfllzN6AsgZouf829ldQ9eO3ZGRU/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=113796250486978022042&rtpof=true&sd=true
  12. If a team thinks Martin is worth a starter 3+pitcher with several years of cotrole I could see it being worth it. It looks like Martin won't stick at SS, we have Buxton at CF and others to back up. Martin also doesn't have the power for a corner outfielder. We don't need him at 2nd we have Polanco. He was a good pick up if he could be SS, but if not....
  13. Thanks happy to share; because of my current location I get the SEA news and because I have been and will always be Twins fan whenever a Twins/Mariners article is published it pops up in my news feed.
