    Whitey333 got a reaction from darwin22 in 5 Free Agent Options for the Minnesota Twins to Replace José Berríos   
    Nice interesting list.  Would love for the Twins to get one or more of them.  Very unlikely it will happen.  The Twins are going with their in house pitchers I believe.  Twins talk about significant pitching signings in the past but rarely deliver.  Unless of course the FA pitcher is coming off Tommy John surgery, hasnt pitched in a couple of years, or if he hasn't been released by several teams.

    It's too bad that people slam others on here that don't always tout the Twins philosophy of prospects and hope for the future.  I have always loved the Twins and still do.  Like a lot of Twins I'm totally frustrated with the direction of the club.  People list these prospects like they are proven major leaguers when most of them will never make it.  Let's hope some of them turn out.  Ober? Love the guy!  I wish they would let him go longer in his outing.

    Another typical Twins game.  Errors, poor base running, rotten relief pitching, catchers who can't block balls in the dirt.

    How can people keep buying into the Twins "philosophy" of building a competitive team?  This same crap has been going on for decades.  Failure to retain good players then when it's time to pay them market salary they dump them off for prospects.  We are always left with prospects and their devolpment and potential.  How can you say we won or lost until we see what happens to them?  Most of these prospects rarely see a major league park much less being a good major league player.  You cannot compare a 20 year old with no experience to an 8 year MLB.  This is lunacy; Twins style!

    Great article Nick.  Well researched and informative.  If he is half as good as the hype he will be a superstar.  If all the prospects the twins now have in their system are so great then why aren't they on the Twins major league team?  Because the Twins are one of the worst teams in MLB.  If they are so good get them up here and see what they can do

    Problem is he will probably stay in the minors and take up a spot from someone else at least potentially.  I'm just saying this is the type of move the Twins take.  Too cheap to sign a quality pitcher, and always looking for bargain basement deals.  It doesn't work out too well does it?

    I don't understand the Donaldson thing from some fans.  I'm glad they didn't trade him.  I think he's been pretty much as advertised. Robles had to go.  Sad part is they couldn't even get a batboy for Colome' and Simmons.  So today we traded Berrios, Happ, Robles, and previously Cruz.  In return we got 6 prospects and 1 major league pitcher.  Very interesting.  I hope those prospects turn out to be future major league talent   like always we will have to wait and see.  Twins always wait too long to sign free agents and trade.  By the time they make a move the better return is gone.

    Who knows??  Big pitcher names have been traded already that are much better than Berrios.  Maybe Twins will do something today.  If they keep Berrios fine.  But they better trade some of the stiffs on the team even if they get low level prospects.  If the Twins do nothing today to improve the team now or at least for the future it will speak volumes of the failures of the FO.

    Oh and why are we so fundamentally inept?  Why did Sano go from 2 nd to third on a ground ball to short?  That's at least 3 times he's done that this year. No discipline on this team at all.  Come on Rocco put your computer down and manage.

    Great comments.  I feel sorry for some of these young players.  They sure don't seem to be getting much coaching help.  I'd much rather see him in the outfield than Celestino and Cave.  Celestino needs to be in Triple AAA and Cave needs to be traded or DFA.  He's been a hang on guy for a few years with very little production and questionable defense.

    Awesome comments by all.  Great to see so many intelligent and caring fans.  With all the hype of possible upcoming trades, what happens if the Twins do little or nothing at the deadline?  How will we all feel then?  I will be upset.  How about the rest of you?

    Great comments all!  I don't even get surprised anymore when they lose.  I've come to expect it.  What a miserable excuse for a bullpen.  Combine that with a manager who totally mismanages the pitching staff.  Why was Robles in there so long?  Let's hope Robles is ok so we can ship him to the Yankees for their batboy.  Hurry up and trade before anyone else gets hurt.

    Sorry but people who suggest Buxton is as good as Trout if he stays on the field are way over estimating his value.  These facts matter to me:. He has only played in 37% of all the Twins games the past 4 seasons.  Also he has a lifetime .247 batting average including this year.  Yes he's had a great April.  Yes he is a great center fielder, but overall he's been a slightly above producing player.  He needs to prove he can stay on the field.  You don't pay " superstar"  money for a part time player.  It makes no sense.  One of the few times I'm with Twins management on this

    I just love reading all of these well thought out replies.  I hope the are able to sign Berrios.  Starting pitching is very important and we need a lot of it.  Isn't it strange how starting pitching has become so overpriced.  Pitchers generally last 5-7 innings.  If they approach 100 pitches managers yank them because idk maybe their arm will fall off lol.  Point is starting pitchers are commanding ever high salaries and pitching much less than they used to just a few seasons ago.

    The comment that Berrios is wanting a big pay day so future players in his position can make more is laughable.  Let's get real.  He like all pro athletes are concerned about themselves only.  Most are selfish, arrogant, and totally out of touch with reality.  In regards to the CBA:. If there is a work stoppage, I for one hope they never come back.  They will come back of course but with everything the general public has gone through the past couple of years, and with attendance and tv ratings so poor, don't they realize that most Americans don't care if they play or not?
