    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.

    I went back and looked and you are correct. Don't know how I got that thought into my head.

    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.

    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.

    Betsy's piece sent me here as well. Very happy for Drew.
    Sitting in a major league dugout in a major league stadium, playing on a major league diamond against the best, if he were British he'd be "chuffed to bits."
    At the least he'll be able to show his grandkids, should he have any, his Twins MLB jersey, the ball that was his first hit, etc. : trophies beyond compare for us fans.

    Excellent move by the Twins. Maggi is a great example of the love of playing baseball. Congratulations to Drew Maggi and kudos to Seth for this post.

    And now he will get an offseason to work on a few specific things and come back next year ready to go. He really, really struggled the first half of the season... he couldn't hit a decent fastball. Contact was definitely an issue, and still is, and likely will always be to some degree. That said, the power is legit. The patience is legit. And, frankly, getting out of the "Florida State League" has to help too!

    I saw comments recently about what a bust Sabato is. I think that .948 OPS in Cedar Rapids begs to differ. He does fan a lot, but he takes a lot of walks as well, and the power....

    Positive September results for a last place team are welcome.
    So often they are but flashes in the pan though.
    Just a year ago we were all excited about Rooker, who is now featured in this year's "lowlights."

    Monkeypaws reacted to TwinsDr2021 in Trade Retrospective: Who Won the Jake Cave/Luis Gil Trade?   
    The Twins got 3 years of plus WAR, while winning two Division titles. The Yanks have gotten 25 MLB innings. As of today it isn't even close the Twins have won the first 3 years, this year is a draw unless Gill continues to pitch well. Going forward is more than likely the Yanks, but it is the kind of trade you do when you are trying to win.
