    cjm0926 got a reaction from ajohns24 in What is the Biggest Move Made by the Twins Before the Trade Deadline?   
    It came out that the Marlins are now at least willing to entertain trades for Pablo Lopez. They also said they are looking for a good left handed bat in return to help their 2023 lineup. Immediately I thought of Kepler or Larnach. I would assume they would have much more interest in Larnach. We could send them Larnach and maybe a mid-level prospect. I have a hard time thinking that they would say no or that it would be far off at least.

    Now you're backtracking on your original claim the Twins benefitted by waiting to trade Cruz.
    There's no reason to believe the Reds would turn down a deal today that they'll accept Tuesday.

    Houston just played better baseball than us for these 3 games, no other way to put it. Houston worked counts and didn't waste any AB's, they were aggressive on the basepaths, and their pitchers went right at hitters. This is a great series to learn from, how we need to be more aggressive if we want to have a real chance against some good teams. Not saying it is going to happen overnight, but Houston looked miles ahead of us in almost every aspect of the game.

    Great post
    Rewarding bad performance with every day jobs is how clubs draft early in the 1st round. 
    Allowing competition for playing time based on performance... is simple enough... yet not done. 
    I will echo the "It's early" chorus but it isn't too early for some.
    Kepler's performance last year and Kepler's performance so far this year still scream out "I am not an every day player". 
    Yet, he plays every day. 
    I hope he turns it around but he needs to be fighting for playing time and there is seemingly no battle. 
    Somebody should be allowed to compete with Kepler.

    I don't think it would be a bad idea to create some in-season competition at a few positions. I am not going to overreact because we have only played 8 games but I feel some players almost take their spot in the lineup everyday for granted. Kepler refuses to do anything but pull the ball, so maybe sit him for a young gun for a few games and see how he reacts when he doesn't get to play everyday. Im sure he wont take it for granted and will try to make adjustments. Same could be said for Sano, bring up Miranda and let him play a bit. That might light a fire in Sano's belly going into a contract year that might get him going a bit faster. You know for a fact these young guys will give it their all every play to try and make a good impression, even though they may struggle. Make it a bit more like a High School/ College team where the people who play well day in and day out play, and those who struggle sit for a bit while they regather themselves. I dont want to overreact this early in the season but soon we may find ourself in a hole too deep to dig out of like last year.

    The Twins play like their Manager acts.... complacent, uninspired, unsure, asleep, excuseful. This teams needs someone to light a fire under 'em and unfortunately Rocco isn't the man for the job. Why is it the team they are playing doesn't use the excuse that it is cold for their pathetic offensive production? The last time I looked they were playing in the same stadium as the Twins when they play each other. Could it be most of these players just can't hit? Or maybe it's time to fired the two hitting coaches, Rudy Hernandez and Dave Popken. They surely don't appear to be helping anyone.

    cjm0926 got a reaction from Danchat in The Case Against the Twins Trading Luis Arraez   
    I totally agree with this. Some people act like injuries will never happen, and then are screwed when they do. Polanco had ankle surgery in 2 straight off-season's, although moving to second base this year likely helped him out in that regard. Donaldson has an injury history, although it did not bite him too bad this year. Those are two positions that Arraez can play well. There is a very real chance Miranda struggles right away in the big leagues, and that is another chance for Arraez to play. Just because he doesn't have a clear spot to play right now, doesn't mean there won't be one come May or June. I would much rather hang onto him unless the trade is too good to decline. Worst case scenario Arraez can play DH and give a starter the day off and play 5 games a week.

    It was a real joy to read that the Twins and BB agreed on a contract. It seems fair all around. The only risk I see with Buxton's contract is the fear that the fo will see the contract as a ceiling for other contracts in the future.
