  1. It really has, but probably not that surprising. It will be interesting to see how he handles the ups and downs of a full season. We're rooting for you kid!
  2. I was in the camp of trading Arraez. I was worried about his knee issues being called chronic . As us PNW'ers know, there's only one thing you want called chronic. He may still have issues with the kneein the future, but I say ride him out. He's too fun to root for, I think almost everybody loves him.
  3. You're right about him having the best raw stuff, but after watching him pitch that guy is a loose cannon! Hopefully they can harness that in a good way.
  4. From the sounds of it you would have been happy leaving him in AAA all year, regardless of how he was playing, if Correa is healthy all year. I like that they were aggressive. Offense was needed at the time, and our wunderkid had already shown he was ready. It felt very un-twins like at the time and that excites me. I hope the fo continues to get guys to the majors when the players show they are ready. Most of time they won't be blocked, but when they are get creative.
  5. Whew, sounds like we got lucky Gordon didn't get hurt with his position moves. And Miranda. Throw in Arraez too. Guys move all over the place in the minors ( some play cf in the AFL) and have to be ready to do it in the majors. If that knee was that unstable it was going to happen anyway. I hate the way it happened too, but that's baseball. Ridiculous to blame the Twins for trying to get their hottest playing prospects time in the majors. See you next year Royce, hope the healing goes quick.
  6. I agree, if they can pitch Gray and Ryan next time. At least put us in the ballpark.
  7. I think they are going to need his bat, but bringing up Kirilloff will make for an odd roster. Who gets sent down? Where does he play? Miranda's recent play makes you want to keep his right handed bat, at least for now. I like AK forcing the issue tho.
  8. I guess you could argue small sample size vs lhp, but in 120 some plate appearances he has 10hr and .950 ops. What's overrated about that?
  9. I'll agree Garlick is not good defensively, but saying he can't hit lefties is not supported by facts. The guy flat out hits southpaws. Whether it makes up for his flaws is another debate.
  10. Excited for Steer to get promoted at some point. That guy can hit and I hope he's ready for the next challenge. I'll admit to not knowing a ton about his def prowess, but I'd rather see him playing in STP at 3rd over Palacios. Palacios feels like he's a utility guy at best. Good def, suspect hitter.
  11. Bundy is doing just what we need him too. If he can stay respectable for a few more months the Twins have time to sort out the young guys. I don't think he was ever going to be good all year, so I'm happy we are getting his "good"stuff early.
  12. I agree with your post, but I'm not so sure about this part. Someone will let him swing away on their mlb club, for awhile at least.
  13. I don't mind it it, but wish it would be implemented later. I like the idea of runner on 1st in 11th, start all later innings with runner on 2nd. Not a fan of 19 inning games, especially if I'm at the game. I could see it being great 80 years ago when there was literally nothing else to do, but people have so many more options these days. Put me in the camp of "baseball is slowly dying", so the league needs to look at new ways to keep fans and engage new ones.
  14. Why mess with Polanco, I like him where he's at. Arreaz is unfortunately injury prone because of bad knees, so he's going to be hard to rely on. Sign another one year SS deal if no one is ready. Polanco can still be the backup/day off shortstop if needed. Gordon is pressed to learn as many positions as he can to battle for a utility guy. It will be fun to see if he can do it.
  15. For the right price, I'd trade anybody on this team. That being said I'm keeping Garver as backup C, 1b and DH. Let him hit. Sano and Simmons can go. Keep all your infield guys, except Donaldson if something looks good. Palanco/arraez/Gordon can all be traded at a later date too, i'd trade Kep if possible, but I'm ok keeping him. Might be a platoon guy with your RH 4th outfielder. Larnach is now a MLB starting OF, play him. Buxton is the hardest guy to decide on. No one comes close to him as a real difference maker on this roster, he is incredible. I would love to sign him, but I think he wants FA. Sad. I am also a sign Berrios guy, but I think he goes to FA too. For that reason I am reluctantly trading him this trade deadline. Also sad. He is so consistent and I think will end up being worth whatever he gets because he's durable and should pitch for most of his contract. Pinieda is fine to trade also, but I would also be open to resigning him. Lots of open spots in rotation next year if Berrios gets traded. As I think we are looking more at 2023, I would trade anyone in the bullpen. There's no reason Rodgers shouldn't bring back a haul. You can build a bullpen and it's hard to worry about it 2 years out as things change so much. A few years ago the Mariners turned over 7 guys in their bullpen mid-season and had a good relief corp.
