    Otwins got a reaction from mikelink45 in Twins Quest for Pitching Becomes Clearer   
    When the Padres decided to spring for Snell with a package centered around their second-best pitching prospect, they effectively took themselves out of any discussion regarding another deal.
     
    This was correct for about one day. Can we just trade for Preller?

    We have plenty of salary room for next year I would sign Cruz.  Best hitter we have had in a long time. If there is demand for DH's it may help the market for Rooker or any other surplus outfielder.

    Very well thought through. I had several of those thoughts as I read through Nick's article. I am just hoping that politics stays out of the Twins Daily site. One reason I enjoy this sight is that it usually sticks to baseball.

    Otwins got a reaction from LA VIkes Fan in Trade Market Calling for the Twins   
    I think that today's Pittsburgh trade is interesting in that they traded Marte for two talented 19 year olds. To me that suggests they are in core rebuild mode not looking for major league ready talent. They may be more interested in a Cavaco, Celestino, Immanuel Rodriguez type in a trade also. I can't imagine they have much interest in Cave unless it would be to save payroll the next couple of years. But I do like the idea of trading with Pittsburgh for pitching. Get them on the phone and see what they are interested in.

    I think we will only compete for championships if we can develop our own starting pitching like Cleveland does. Signing one free agent starter would not have made the Twins a world series winner. I think you are correct we need to start playing the rookies.

    All depends on the prospect cost but definitely worth checking into. I always felt Archer was a bit overrated but now he is at a low point and we need two more starters.

    The only teams that the rule 5 seems to make sense for are the teams that are tanking. If your trying to win it is what Dman said.

    I like Urena the best of Miami starters but that would not be worth Rosario so not sure how to match up on this trade.

    Otwins reacted to TopGunn#22 in Why the Eddie Rosario hate?   
    Mike, I get what you're feeling, but I would agree with an earlier post, it's not hate.  It's that Eddie is a good player who would probably get us a very good starting pitcher and with 4 out of the 5 spots needing to be filled in next year's rotation the Twins NEED to get one SP thru a trade.  Even with the payroll giving them a LOT of room to operate, they can't just "sign everybody."  I want the Twins to aim high for starting pitching.  No Carl Pavano, Martin Perez types.  Go get a Cole or a Strasburg.  With Larnach and Kiriloff waiting in the wings we can't keep everybody.  I think BOTH will be better, more productive hitters than Eddie.  And that's not a slam on Eddie.  I watched Larnach come thru in the clutch time and time again 2 years ago in leading Oregon State to the NCAA Championship.  I was thrilled when we drafted him.  Kiriloff was drafted out of high school one year before Larnach.  He looks like a STUD.  Many are targeting Eddie for a trade because those two guys could be up in the bigs very soon, sooner if we trade Eddie.

    Otwins got a reaction from tarheeltwinsfan in Moving Eddie Rosario, but Where?   
    Rosario may not bring the type of pitching that we need. You cited the 103 WRC and the $9 million contract. Not sure there is enough excess value there. I would explore a trade of an outfielder for pitching.  It may have to be one of the prospects. MLB trade rumors mentioned Colorado may be looking at trading Story or Jon Gray as they are in a payroll bind. They would probably want the prospect outfielder. Gray may do better away from Coors.

    Pretty exciting that the lineup you laid out is already signed or under control. I think 7 of those 9 are controlled for the 2021 season. I am with you on moving Rosario out of the clean up spot.  Not sure that Rocco is

    Thanks for the updates.
     
    I went the other way and attended the major league game. Buxton had a very good game at the plate. Laying off breaking balls out of the strike zone and hit a long home run off Evoldi. It went out of the stadium over the 4th umbrella from the foul pole so more towards left center than right down the line. He also pulled a double into the left field corner. Parker looked very good again. That is the second time I saw him this week and both times made quick work of his inning. I was glad to see Tim Collins as he was very sharp on Tuesday. Today he was not as good. Just OK. Morin threw the ball well.  Not sure what his chances are of helping this year but it is a long season. One other observation was when the Twins shift against the left handers they use to bring Sano over to the 2nd base side. Today they left Marwin on the left saide and shifted the shortstop over.  He made two nice plays on sharply hit grounders. Showed good range. I am not saying we are better off without Sano but we have a lot more range when we shift.

    Just another time where the Twins are being "used"  by agents claiming that they may get involved to drive up the price.
     
    I would still need to see more improvement in the rotation and bullpen before I think it would be wise to make a push for a player like Kimbrell.
