  1. Maybe Berrios said he wanted to test free agency. Why would he want to do that? Maybe he felt he had a better chance of signing a long term deal with a different team. Or maybe he didn't like the team's direction. Or maybe it's just too darn cold. I think the Twins have a bad reputation with players around the league, including their own. But Berrios is gone and the FO remains, so we can make Berrios the bad guy here.
  2. That's interesting. I would think that being claimed by the 3rd eligible team means that Colina was snatched up pretty quickly. But I don't know the waiver system very well.
  3. Buxton has leverage over the Twins that Ortiz didn't. If Buxton doesn't want to stay, he can force a trade. If Buxton doesn't sign and has a HOF career somewhere else, it won't be completely the Twins fault for letting him go.
  4. That we are having this discussion at all means that Berrios is at least a good #2. He's also just entering his prime. He's got plenty of time left to have postseason success.
  5. Maybe I'm wrong, but since Ryan was a September call up, his service clock hasn't started yet, right? Will the Twins keep him at AAA until June?
  6. I don't disagree with the article, but... If you were Byron Buxton, and you turned down the last contract offer, would you be more inclined to re-up now in a rebuild? I think if the Twins go this way, they need to trade Buxton.
  7. The Twins don't sign free agent starters who are as good as Berrios. They have openings but will more likely fill them with JA Happ types. That's just my observation after 20 years following this team. I hope you're right about the prospects.
  8. Trade Buxton in the off-season, before he gets the chance to get hurt. If he turned down the most recent offer, why would he be more inclined to sign a deal after the Berrios trade? If I was Buxton I would want out.
  9. I can't fault the Red Sox for this. Twins fans would want their FO to do the same thing. Good on them.
  10. Get creative. Trade a prospect. Make an aggressive move. Throw out spring training invites by the dozens. Basically, do more. Honestly, I think there was (and is) still plenty of room for a Kyle Gibson in this staff.
  11. "Not wanting to come here" meaning a combination of factors; bad weather, high taxes, lack of horse stables, what have you. I also mean the contract terms that were (or weren't) offered, and the Twins reputation around the league. So what I mean to ask is, did Falvine not improve the rotation because they have faith? Or because they struck out?
  12. So did we sign these guys because we have a lot of faith in our system? Or because all of the better options didn't want to come here?
  13. I sincerely hope that the Twins weren't waiting to swing a trade because it might have affected their chances of signing Rich Hill.
  14. I appreciate the positive take, but the market says otherwise. There's a reason Bailey got a one-year deal with the Twins.
