  1. SWR + Martin for Berrios is a massive haul. Love this deal as both players are relatively close to the majors. Also of note, Austin Martin has had a wrist injury this year and might be contributing to the lack of power. SWR was shoving at the beginning of the year too and was getting a lot of love for being a top 30 prospect. Came back down to earth but the flashes were there.
  2. I think the Padres are about to get desperate. They lost Scherzer, lost Berrios, and are going to scramble. Preller won't stand put and knows he went all in before the season. Maeda, Rogers, Buxton all could be a fit. Twins could take on Meyers or Hosmer to really maximize the return.
  3. It won't be pretty .. Probably a lot of the younger guys will fill it out, who that may be hinges on the next 24hrs. I could see guys on a short term deal. Carlos Martinez seems like a fit, similar deal to Michael Pineda's a few years ago. Michael Pineda, Zach Davies, Michael Wacha, etc. rounding out open spots. Noah Syndergaard is interesting. Regardless, it'll be a lot of the same that we've seen in the past while they continue (haha) to develop the minor league system.
  4. I think once the Scherzer domino falls, the Twins are going to have a flurry of moves happen
  5. Happy Tuesday Twins Fans! Tigers (47-55) vs Twins (43-58) 7:10 CST 7/27 Twins - 225 / Tigers +185 / O/U 9 (-115) Following Monday night's ELECTRIC win in extra innings, the Twins hope to make it 2 in a row vs division foe, the Detroit Tigers. On the bump for the Twins tonight is last nights game winning, pinch runner, Kenta Maeda. Better known for his pitching abilities, Maeda has been solid in his last 7 starts with a 3.89 ERA and 46 K's in 37 IP. Tyler Alexander will get the start tonight for the Tigers. The left hander has been used primarily as a reliever this season, as this will be just his 5th start of the season in 23 games. Sporting a 4.24 ERA in 2021, Alexander has yet to pitch more than 3.2 innings in any appearance. We may be looking at an opener type of start for Detroit. Tigers 1. Akil Baddoo CF 2. Jonathan Schoop 2B 3. Robbie Grossman LF 4 4. Miguel Cabrera 1B 5. Jeimer Candelario 3B 6. Eric Haase C 7. Willi Castro DH 8. Victor Reyes RF 9. Zack Short SS Twins 1. Jorge Polanco 2B 2. Brent Rooker LF 3. Josh Donaldson 3B 4. Mitch Garver C 5. Max Kepler RF 6. Miguel Sano DH 7. Willians Astudillo 1B 8. Gilberto Celestino CF 9. Andrelton Simmons SS
  6. I'll just roll with the biggest move I think will be made... Jose Berrios - Trying my best to create a bidding was between the Dodgers and Padres. Loop in the Mets depending on how bad Cohen wants to win this year. With the Dodgers, I love the Dustin May concept, but I'm going to need more. Ryan Pepiot + 1 more throw in arm is what I want attached. Might have to include Taylor Rogers to get a higher level arm and I'm not opposed to packaging the two. (barring injury) The Padres are interesting. If they want to include Eric Hosmer, fine. With that said, if I'm taking on 58 mil, while also giving up Berrios, the package is steep. I need CJ Abrams back in any deal. . Abrams, Adrian Morejon, and one of Robert Hassell / Luis Campusano is what I need. If not, LA can take the division from you this year and next. Also, your stuck with Hosmer because he gets 10+5 rights after this season. Ouch.. Mr. Cohen, what better way to start off your ownership of the Mets with a deep playoff run. Berrios + Rogers? Great. If Kumar Rocker's arm checks out and that's not the hold up in the deal right now, he's coming back to Minnesota as a PTBNL following the world series. Matt Allan and Robert Dominguez can come back now. Pleasure doing business. Longshot, Rays - If they want to jump in the Jose Berrios + Taylor Rogers sweepstakes, we'd love to do another deal. Shane Baz, Taj Bradley, and Sandy Gaston would be the dream scenario. Any of these deals, I'm going to bed happy.
  7. If your comfortable with Kepler's defense in the corner spots, who had a UZR of -.02 last year and 1.0 UZR this year, we can live with Larnach's -1.3 .. Like you said , "Barely negative" ... If you have a plus center fielder, corner spots don't really matter a ton defensively.
  8. Larnach has played 60 career games, is a former top 30 prospect in all of baseball, and showed flashes of being fantastic in that span. Rookies slump, thats what they do... He is absolutely capable of taking over for Kepler and thats most likely what is going to happen.
  9. what? I'm not sure I'm following what your argument is at this point.
  10. I see you added the stats part of this argument. He’s got a negative UZR in center, with declining speed, the past 2 years. Again, not a centerfielder. Who cares about 2022 at this point, on pace to lose 90+ games right now.
  11. Well corner outfielders seem to be a position of strength for the Twins. Typically teams trade from positions of strength.. You could make an argument to trade Max, for a prospect who is a true center fielder in a package... Also - Royce Lewis is a CF most likely.
  12. Max is not a centerfielder .. He is capable of playing center, but he isn't a center fielder.
  13. well there is a reason he isn't working in front offices anymore
