    Craig Arko reacted to mnfireman in HOF hitters think Arraez is a good hitter, and Arraez is making base hits cool again.   
    I have come to appreciate what Arraez brings to this club. The biggest issue with me was the balky knees, but it looks like he got serious about being in great shape (unlike some other 1B/DH type) and, so far, has managed to stay on the field and put up good numbers. He is not a downgrade from Sano defensively and provides a little defensive flexibility. 
    My issue is with the TD posters that are singing his praises after they demeaned and took shots at Mauer for being the same type of hitter. If 1B and DH were supposed to be "power hitter" positions when Mauer was there, shouldn't that still be true? Mauer's OBP and OPS were very similar to what Arraez is putting up and his defense was WAY better. He deserved the same praises, especially after the career altering concussion issue.

    First, I suspect the Twins will work hard to work out some type of extension that would keep him here for at least a few more years.  What that looks like, who knows.  The good news is the team is doing well and it sounds as if he likes it here, a lot.  That should lead to a serious discussion, at a minimum.
    I don't have a clue what the TWins will do should he opt out.  I know what I would do, but that is the same as my winning a mega millions lottery....it ain't gonna happen.  I would put Palacios at short on opening day with the intent of Lewis replacing him early next summer when he is 100% back.

    Plus, with Luis you can really see him express the internal game of hitting as he goes through an at bat. Truly a smart batter.

    There is no better satisfaction in my career than drawing untapped potential from those who work with me.  That requires starting at their level of understanding.   And once their aha moment arrives, their confidence and skill soar.  Wes's example is one to emulate in many aspects of life.

    Just a quick glance through this list tells me many people do not quite get what the current state of professionalism is. In the tech industry, this kind of thing happens all the time. Even non-compete clauses get negotiated around.
    Beyond that wishing him the best. Sounds like a nice raise.

    Johnson was hired by the Twins in November of 2018. This is the time of year when college baseball coaches are in the middle of preparation for their season, which begins in February. That means workouts and practices are underway or close to beginning. This would be similar to a pitching coach leaving an MLB team in January, while spring training is being planned. I don't recall any hue and cry about Johnson leaving his position at the University of Arkansas at a critical time.
