  1. First We get the Axe back, now Buck Signs! What an incredible couple days. Cue Handel's Messiah! HALLELUJIA!!!!
  2. You all are forgetting our biggest asset at catcher (and everywhere)... La Tortuga!!! ...
  3. Can we sign him please?!? Pitch to contact is a good strategy to combat the home run happy hitting style. Plus we need at least one starter to can shew innings and give our bullpen a break. I also like him as a mentor for our glut of young pitching prospects.
  4. Buxton or we are done next season, and for the next several frankly. His health concerns should stabilize. Most of his injuries recently have been dumb luck.
  5. I think it makes a lot of sense for him to return. I think he can be a mentor to those 2 aforementioned prospects. (defensively at least). I think the fact the Twins were struggling so much as a whole may have been a part of the reason for his poor season. We shall see.
  6. Trading Buxton would be one of the worst decisions this team could make. We need to pay him what he wants. At some point he will stop getting hurt. I honestly believe that he does not want to move.
  7. Simmons. He has a lot to prove and teams aren't going to be willing to give him the $$$ he wants. Plus, he can mentor our young prospects as they come up this next year. He may not hit, but that has never been his strong suit. That is not why we signed him. He has the best glove in the league.
  8. Thank you! You said it much better than I could. There is NO reason the '22 Twins can't compete. Our Lineup is too stacked. We just need average pitching and our above average lineup will carry us to contention. Then as we develop the pitching and supplement our lineup with young cheap talent, watch out WS!
  9. "Tough to imagine the Twins contending in 2022"! Give me a break. You guys are all so doom and gloom. The Twins should and will contend in '22. Our lineup is too good to not contend. Just need a little help with our pitching. I will say, '23 should be the year we really put it together, but no reason to think we can't contend next year. We should have contended this year, were it not for a fluke of everything that could go wrong going wrong.
  10. If they deal any of Maeda, Buxton, Kepler, or Rogers I am going to be sorely disappointed. There is no reason we should not be expected to compete in 2022. Buxton is imperative to keep, regardless. I think a Josh Donaldson trade is good, especially if we can dump his salary. Free it up for a Buxton extension and an Ace/Closer FA signing. I think in the offseason we need to pursue Pineda, Robles, and Simmons, try to get 2 of those 3. Also picking up the aforementioned Ace or Closer, and we are set to compete in '22, with the sky being the limit for '23.
