    The front office may well be hamstrung by Pohlad. The ghosts of pitchers past in rough order Blackburn extension, Pavano extension, Hughes extension, Nolasco being a dog after signing. Hector Santiago. Now Happ and Shomaker. Pohlad signs off on the large contracts. That was a lot of money down the tubes. Carl Pohlad made his money by buying low and selling high. The baseball structure doesn’t work that way

    They’ve never had even a #2 in their tenure?
    Didn’t they have a Cy Young runner up in 2020 along with a very good Berrios? You don’t win playoff games scoring one run per game.

    A trade would involve getting someone back of value. That would be a very good pitching prospect from a team needing a SS that gas pitching

    When a pitch is used rarely in a game that pitcher doesn’t have a four pitch mix. Whatever you want to believe. Have at it. A poor pitch is not a benefit

    There are plenty of pitchers considered better than a number 3 pitcher with only 3 pitches.  There is nothing typical about a number 3 pitcher other than over the course of a season he doesn’t  have as good of results as some pitchers  but is a lot better than most. I guess you and the OP must not have looked at the starting pitching to the the large sinkhole;.  
    Austim Martin going into last season was rated higher than Lewis. Same position, same athleticism. 
    Having starting pitching develop is far far more important than Lewis, and Martin

    Texas was able to sign 3 free agents of note. So much for bad teams not being able to sign free agents. They still might not be a good team
    I wish I would have saved the Falvey quote about big changes going to be made. It takes 2 entities in baseball to make changes. The free agents are not being very interested in Minnesota. Nobody is making trades. It will be either a wild post lockout or a long season.

    Every player is an asset. What they bring back is how much another team sees in them. The bad trades are the players the Twins did not see what the other team does. The good ones are the opposite

    I am getting the impression the Twins are adverse to long term contracts for pitchers. Of those listed as remaining Rodon for a 2 year contract seems like a Twin thing to do. They would have familiarity with Boyd I think is FB and change up guy, not a slider. If they think they could improve his slider significantly he would make sense
