  1. Gotta admit... I love tonight's #MNTwins lineup with Kirilloff, Larnach, Gordon, Jeffers and Celestino in it!! Granted, it explains why the Twins record is what it is (so many injuries!), but it is fun to watch young guys play.

  2. Contemplating how far the Twins are from contention and what that means in terms of how much they should trade in July.

      Last November my gut reaction was that the Twins needed to make some strategic changes in their philosophy. Defense and more contact with an emphasis on the bullpen were my thoughts at the time. The Twins doubled down on their style of play and now it feels like they will need a streak of some sort, say 15-5 or 25-8 to get back to the pack up front. Without a surge, doesn't it feel like major trades are coming?

      How much? This is a question of money and how much the Pohlads feel can be invested in the next season. A budget of $150 million for 2022 would allow the Twins to hold on to some players this July unless the return is very attractive. A fiscal policy of maintaining the $120 million plus payroll might see all of the players in their  final year and a few others jettisoned.

      It's not late yet but it's getting there. The Tuesday night loss to the Orioles exposed every hole. The sun will come up tomorrow. I, too, have wondered about the distance and reactions to come in July.

      I'm actually coming to the point where I think moving both Buxton and Berrios is the smartest move going forward. If they get the right return, they could return to respectability as soon as 2023, maybe contend for the division again in 2024.

  3. The Twins have never scored less than ten runs in a regular-season game in which both Alex Kirilloff and Trevor Larnach are in the lineup!

      I think you jinxed the streak, Seth. :)

      Yeah, that's on me that the Twins didn't score 10 or more off of Bieber yesterday. My bad! 

  4. Could we possibly see both Alex Kirilloff and Trevor Larnach in a Twins lineup in Cleveland?!

      That would give me a reason to watch!

  5. So excited that Minor League Baseball is back! Go Saints, Wind Surge, Kernels and Mighty Mussels! And Twins too!

      I cannot wait to visit CHS this year. Hopefully soon...

  6. When I was in my early days of blogging,  Roger and I had a ton of conversations about prospects and rankings, and how much performance matters in the minors. 

  7. Thank you. It it a lot of work, but it's the stuff I really enjoy the most.

  8. No problem. It was good... We're all busy so we don't always promote as much as we should...

     

    Also, saw you reported that Message... we have banned that person from the site... but it wasn't before she/he apparently hit quite a few people. We're dealing with a lot of spam and trying to figure out the best way to do that.
