    Why is he wrong about Chicago? Look up last year’s playoff results. 
    The article is an opinion piece by a writer who needs ratings and clicks to get paid. If it is as you say and he has Polanco as a SS that should tell you how much he has paid attention. Why is he wrong? I doubt that he is trying to be right.
    The Twins lost a lot of time to injuries, on a stat sheet they are going to look bad. To a stat sheet scout

    Rodney 9 million, Romo 5 million Colonel 6.25, Reed 16 million. The FO has spent money on relievers

    Albers  isn’t available; anymore?
    Any of these pitchers wouldn’t cost more than a Placios kind of player so why not. Only Houston has an excess of pitching and the Twins moved on from Odorizzi for a reason. The other 2 teams  would need good reasons to trade. A low level prospect isn’t going to work even if the teams were trying to tank.

    The sad thing was that the Twins paid he more money for the year than he had ever earned before, or since. They gave him a fair one year contract.

    It is the Lance Lynn effect.  The team is gun shy after the mediocrity and black cloud that Lynn was when he was here.

    old nurse got a reaction from mikelink45 in Hank Conger is a Perfect Fit for the Twins   
    Redmond was a great team player and understood the game. There is a translation problem. Redmond took a team of future batting stars and made them mediocre. Mattingly has not done any better. Redmond should not be the blueprint other than he has been gainfully employed as the bench coach for a mediocre Rockies team. Here is to hoping that Conger can make players better.

    old nurse got a reaction from Hunter48 in Don't Trade Austin Martin   
    I cab see that last year Martin played in CF or SS. There are people claiming that he is neither a SS or CF. Are both the Toronto and Twins organizations that clueless because there is the oft repeated postings. 
    When was the last time thisTwins FO traded a top prospect.?  Do people think that the FO is going to change how they have done business?
