  1. He's a good player, but not at the price they'd have to pay in arbitration. I suspected him to be non-tendered honestly, so this is a much better outcome. The strikeout numbers on the prospect are pretty tantalizing even if a small sample size.
  2. I've been meaning to check it out for sure.
  3. Fangraphs ranks prospects traded at the deadline According to fangraphs.com, the Twins gave up the 8th, 25th, 26th, 37th, 57th, and 66th best prospects of those traded at the deadline. It really seems like the Twins did well in limiting what kind of assets they gave up vis-à-vis what other teams gave up.
  4. How much of his contract would we have to eat in order to trade him?
  5. I don't know this Mark Contreras is starting to grow on me.
  6. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/which-teams-improved-the-most-at-the-trade-deadline/
  7. It's an A for me. Three pitchers, with two of them under team control, gave up very little in terms of the top 10 prospects.
  8. Guardians and Whitesox stand pat, essentially conceding the division.
  9. Rodon nor Contreas seem to be going anywhere, surprisingly.
  10. It's not though. Austin Martin and SWR were both top 100 guys at the time (with some having Martin very high). Maybe Steer is a top 100 guy...
  11. https://twitter.com/LaVelleNeal/status/1554542309211049985
  12. The only real asset the Twins gave up is Povich, who hasn't even reached double AA. I don't see any downside to this move, especially given the 2 years of control going forward. Heck of a move.
  13. Why be eager to sell the poor production against the pedigree/profile? I don't get it. Keep such guys in the system and bet on them to produce.
  14. That feels like an overpay to me. Along with selling low on two top 5 talents.
  15. So you're just subjectively tallying things you don't like. Okay. That's not Wins Above Replacement for Managers. That's Epravens' non-scientific point-reduction tally. It's fine that you're doing your own thing, but no need to mislead by calling it WAR which is a painstakingly calculated metric.
  16. Unless that game story had your calculations for Managerial WAR, it wouldn't help you pass this quiz. That you continue to appeal to authority and emotion rather than showing your work/documentation demonstrates, well, that you seem to be just making things up to buttress your lame opinion as something more than it is. To the extent you were actually a sports journalist previously, just has no bearing on how you came up with -43 WAR.
  17. You covered them in smatterings of sunflower seed shells? And you want us to simply accept your expertise/take your word for it? Appeals to authority don't go very far, especially if you don't have any authority. Surely, you can document how you've arrived at -43 WAR for Badelli. Just like the math teacher wants, let's see your work.
