    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.

    Didn't even realize he had been released. I will add to the other comments and say that I actually don't mind this idea. I think that it would be a good idea to have him or a similar player, and/ or Nick Gordon splitting at time until one of our minor leaguers are ready (Martin, Lewis, etc.)

    cjm0926 got a reaction from Doctor Gast in Share your trade ideas!   
    I was doing a little thinking the other day and thought of a trade that may be unlikely but could benefit both teams. The trade was Kepler to NYY for Luis Severino. Severino is kind of a gamble coming off injuries but is still young and was an electric starter looking like he would become an ace just a few years ago. There is nothing saying the Yankees would accept this, but the Yankees seemed heavily interested in Kepler at last years deadline and he could become their centerfielder for the next few years while being very affordable for them so they don't have to worry as much about the luxury tax. Severino also has a $15 Million option for 2023 so if he shows up, we can bring him back, or otherwise him and his salary are gone after this year

    I know it was just a hypothetical trade but I hope the Twins keep Sands, I think he can turn into a solid ML starter. He seems to be a good pitcher, not just a good thrower.

    I hope Larnach can become that guy but I am just not too sure. I wouldn't mind keeping him and developing him but also if he could be a big piece of a trade bringing in an ace I could find that hard to turn down as well. I guess we will just wait and see.

    I just don't know about Rodon. I believe he is a good pitcher but I also believe this year was just a career year and he will never be quite as good. For a team like the Twins who many tend to believe they are more frugal with their money I would rather spend it on a guy with multiple seasons of good success, maybe Stroman or even Gausman. I do hope we could get Rodriguez for 2/$24, that would be huge.
