  1. I do not think Ohtani will be a Twin next year. I also am not sure what a trade package would be. If the Angels decide they cannot pay him, there is no way they can expect to get back equal value. No team will trade their ace and best hitter. So the Twins might not have to give up as much as you might think, but no way are the Twins going to sign him.
  2. C: Ryan Jeffers ($0.70M) 1B: Luis Arraez ($4.50M) 2B: Jorge Polanco ($7.50M) 3B: Gio Urshela ($9.00M) LF: Alex Kirilloff ($0.70M) CF: Byron Buxton ($15.00M) RF: Max Kepler ($8.50M) DH: Jose Miranda ($0.70M) 4th OF: Kyle Garlick ($0.70M) Utility: Nick Gordon ($0.70M) Utility: Gilberto Celestino ($0.70M) SP1: Sonny Gray ($12.00M) SP2: Tyler Mahle ($8.00M) SP3: Kenta Maeda ($9.00M) SP4: Joe Ryan ($0.70M) SP5: Bailey Ober ($0.70M) RP: Jhoan Duran ($0.70M) RP: Jorge Lopez ($3.00M) RP: Griffin Jax ($0.70M) RP: Jorge Alcala ($1.00M) RP: Caleb Thielbar ($2.00M) Payroll is 38.21% under budget
  3. wishful thinking. Pitch around Corea and the rest of this lineup is minor league level.
  4. Bundy has been fine for what he was asked to do, but he is not part of the future. If they fall further behind it might be time to say goodby to Bundy and Archer and go with Winder, Ober, or Varland to finish the year.
  5. The Twins need an impactful trade. If they are not able to get a front line pitcher or reliable back end relievers there is no reason to trade prospects. They should trade veterans who are not of their future.
  6. Any trade for a major league known quantity for unknown minor league prospects is worth making
  7. Imagin Kendricks, Talor and Pressly. What could have been.
  8. Why would any Twins fan vote for Buxton. True, he is a great talent, but resting his knee is of more than playing in a meaningless game.
  9. We know what is needed. (bullpen and starters0.. I do not understand why they wait to add what is needed now. You can not make up games that are already lost or those you are about to lose because of an over worked bullpen. Make the moves now
  10. Ten Years ! Unbelievable . I enjoy the site and visit almost everyday. Thank you all for your tireless effort reporting on our favorite team.
  11. I view an outfield upgrade very low on my off season needs. Use the money and resources on pitching and then on more pitching . Then if any space is left in the budget get a ss.
  12. Pineda for sure, then one of Danny Duffy or Dylan Dundy, plus Sydergaard

    This is my first effort and it will not be long. What a difference a year makes. Last off season we couldn't wait for the year to begin. Most of us viewed the roster to be solid and the pitching to be ok. We mostly thought that the pitching coaching staff could piece together a good bullpen with the additions that were made. We know how that went. We had fun spending money on the players we thought would make us contenders on the Twins Daily work sheet. Expectation was high that this could be the year we won a playoff series if not more. This off season we face a lot of questions about next years roster. the CBA needs to be worked out so the FO knows what rules they have to go by to fill out a roster that can compete next year. WE have several players that need to evaluated and determine to keep, offer, or trade. Anyway this off season is a lot different than last season but still gives us plenty to talk and write about. thank you for this forum.
  14. Buxton is the big question. They should make their best offer early and if he does not sign he should bring back a good package in trade. Maybe he bring in a capable arm or two.
  15. I would hope they take a chance on a hard throwing arm in the rule 5 draft. Stick him at the back of the bullpen an hope you find a gem.
  16. Thank you so much for doing this. I am sure the off season will be interesting if a CBA can be agreed to, and I sure your coverage will be great. Again thank you very much.
  17. If the front office does not think they can resign Buxston, they might see if San Diego would give up C J Abrams and MacKenzie Gore
  18. report says Buxton turned down the Twins latest offer. If this is there best offer then he should be moved for some high end pitching talent. Maybe the mets ss prospect and a pitcher.
  19. By all means, if he is unhappy here and will not sign a new deal, trade him to the highest bidder
