    I'm sure every player you hoped the team would sign has put up great numbers wherever else they signed....maybe you should forward your number to the front office guys so they can consult you before signing/trading players.

    You can say they are NOT a small market team. They are not a large market team, either. The differences between the Twins revenue and the top 8-9 teams was close to 100 million

    Diaz for the Mets had a .330+ BABIP.  A very long time ago and now likely in cyber dust, I read one place that BABIP normalizes for pitchers ay about 1000 innings. I do not foresee for the most part BABIP useful for relief pitching . It may rise and fall but other numbers may give a truer picture of what is going on

    To remove a player from the 40 man roster a team has to DFA them, thus making them available to all of the clubs. Attempting to stash a player would be a losing proposition. Look at the multiple times a player has switched teams multiple times over the off season

    The Twins made a quite a few trades last year. It might be safe enough to assume there were a lot of other trade offers. Leguminous may have been a prospect that came up in discussions. It will be interesting to see if this is the start of a busy off season or a return to minimal impact trades

    old nurse got a reaction from Heiny in Twins Add Four to their 40-Man Roster   
    Most teams have a full 40 man roster. There will be non tendered players between now and the draft to open up spots. There are also free agents to sign. For a prospect to be selected pretty much they have to be a better prospect than someone who was on the 40 man of some team at the end of the season and offer more of an upside, I think this year’s rule 5 will be a snooze fest

    old nurse got a reaction from weitz41 in Could the Twins Continue Without a Default Closer for 2023?   
    Since Rodney it to me has appeared that Baldeli will try to use the better reliever against the heart of the order rather than by the inning. There still has to be a closer mentality for the bottom of the order in the ninth but it is not necessary to have a closer if they score runs in the 8th with the top of the order

    They tried hard for Darvish. For every Scherzer that continues on pitching well for a new team there seems to be the Zimmermans, Corbins and Mad Bum who diminish. The successes are easily remembered, the failures not so much
