  1. I don’t think there’s any way they’re getting that... teams are hesitant to move their best prospects except for blockbuster deals. If you include Berrios, then yah that’d make sense.
  2. Greg Joseph looks to be winning the job, as UDFA Riley Patterson was reportedly struggling in OTAs and was absent from minicamp. I suspect they may turn to the waiver wire if both struggle in the preseason and camp.
  3. That’s insanity, no manager is worth 30 wins! We have the third worst pitching staff by runs allowed, what sorcery would these managers perform to erase the runs out pitchers allow? Maybe Roberts or Francona could have gotten 3 or 4 wins, but not 30. Heck, I know Dodgers fans who think Roberts is a poor manager and if fired, they’d be doing better. It’s all a matter of perspective...
  4. It's probably time for Alcala to head to AAA and give somebody like Cano or Moran a shot in the majors.
  5. Check out the Phillies, they may be the only worse one.
  6. I don't think he gets traded this week, but I think it might happen over the winter.
  7. Palacios being added to the 40 man is a possibility, but there’s so many others who need to be protected it might be difficult to fit the prospects and free agents all on there. At this point I’d protect him over Javier.
  8. You're not completely wrong; Jacksonville did use him as a punt returner, but only as a backup kick returner. But after spending a 4th on Nwangwu and a 5th on Smith-Marsette, I'd think those two will be getting the KR and PR reps.
  9. From MLBTradeRumors, It sounds like teams are willing to pay a high price for Rogers...
  10. I think Berrios will be here next week... just a hunch. Random thought, do the Twins need to carry 8 relievers anymore? Lately their starters have gone deeper, and we could use another bench player for pinch hitting and pinch running.
  11. Nwangwu should be taking back kicks, or else I'm not sure why they spent a high 4th on him. I'd rather let Westbrook be the 3WR and not worry about him getting hurt on a kick return.
  12. Wow, 8 innings into a no hitter, yikes! And they wasted a very strong 7 inning effort from Berrios... not surprising.
  13. Harrison Smith too. It's a nice move for depth, Westbrook is a decent receiver and should be better than Bisi and Beebe.
  14. Nope, none of them are. Of course, they could easily move Minaya and others off the 40 man, not sure why they’re wasting their time with the likes of him.
  15. I really don't get this FO's fascination with older relievers who clearly aren't MLB caliber. I'd much rather see somebody like Hamilton or Cano pitching here than Minaya.
  16. So we should grade it an F because they haven't thrown a pitch yet?
  17. Polanco looks like he's back in 2019 form. He's healthy and smacking the ball around, and even hitting more HRs than expected even with the ball carrying less. It took longer than expected, but at least someone [outside of Cruz] is looking like their 2019 self.
  18. It was borderline unfathomable that all our pitchers regressed when they were all likely cheating [to some degree] and hitting was repressed. I wonder what the heck is going through Wes' mind after this unmitigated disaster.
  19. I figured that much out, I was just wondering if anyone had heard of him before the trade. I hadn't, but there was an article on him from a couple years back.
  20. It's probably too late to trade him for anything worthwhile - he's starting to get old for a prospect, and despite the strong numbers at AAA, MLB pitchers are going to feast on him if he doesn't change his approach and drop the K% numbers. I fear he may become the next Daniel Palka.
  21. As expected, Rooker has been called up to fill Cruz's spot.
  22. It's getting buried under the Dennison news, but here you go:
