    Haha, that's the spirit Ashbury. Best of the Worst, Champs of the Chumps, the Kings of the Peons.
    There's always next year, now on to hockey and footie.

    Twins had 8 more wins than any other last-place team in 2021.  Fact.

    Monkeypaws got a reaction from operation mindcrime in 8th overall pick next draft   
    Kind of a nice bonus for a losing season.
    When/how do they compute the competitive bonus picks?

    Monkeypaws reacted to bighat in Twins Catcher May Be Marlins Perfect Catch   
    Jeffers ended the season batting .198 - a healthy sample size, too. Are we sure he and Rortvedt are the answer for the Twins? What are the Twins going to do if they trade away the only catcher who can hit?

    Dump Sano - the guy is in his prime at 28-29 going into 2022, and as been posted, is a debit on the value chart.
    Donaldson, Kiriloff, and Miranda can find enough to share at 1B, 3B, DH.

    Yeah. Pointless understatement.  How about, THE most disappointing result in the history of human endeavor.

    Monkeypaws got a reaction from Sconnie in 2018: Archer to Pirates for Glasnow, Meadows, Baz   
    As someone who likes the Pirates, this trade makes me want to cry. Even moreso now that Archer has rejoined Tampa Bay. 
    This trade is the poster child for the risks of trading boatloads of high-end prospects for a pitcher where years of control is a primary reason for the price tag.
    I hope Falvine treads these waters with caution this off-season.

    Monkeypaws got a reaction from glunn in Twins Daily 2021 Minor League Starting Pitcher of the Year: Louie Varland   
    Varland is a feel-good story to be sure. However, he was 1.1 years over average age in Florida, and only 0.3 below average age in Cedar Rapids. In fact he's almost a year older than Balazovic, who was competing in AA, at -2.7 years younger than average. JB is a full year younger than teammate Sands, nearly a year younger than Gipson-Long.
    I suppose this award is a pure comparison of raw numbers, and so Varland is deserving. However more than holding your own against significantly older competition is as impressive to me, especially at AA.

    Think it's safe to pencil Ober in the 2022 rotation.
    Fun to see Buxton take his draft mate deep. Boy that was a draft: Buxton, Berrios, Duffey, Rogers, and although the Twins cut him loose, Chargois.

    Monkeypaws reacted to Brock Beauchamp in How do you define "ace" and is Jose Berríos one?   
    You weren't far off, he placed close to the top ten a bunch of times. I just wanted to clarify the point a bit, as many will view "top ten" and "top twenty" quite differently when speaking in the context of ace pitchers.

    Is it too early to yell "JACKPOT!" with Joe Ryan?
    Tonight's line looks just like the numbers he put up in the minors: hard to hit, few walks, lots of Ks.
