One of the weaknesses for fans is familiarity bias. I am as guilty as anyone. I read all these glowing TD accounts and think our prospects must be the best there is, but that is seldom true. So what do we do? If I was to believe that the FO thinks all the pieces are in place then Baldelli should have been fired.

People assume the Twins will stay at or maybe even increase last year's payroll. I hope that's the case. But we should also be prepared for a reduced payroll. None of the " moves" made so far give any indication whatsoever that payroll will go up.

Nothing you have said excites me at all. Grienke is a veteran but what does he have left. Rodon will cost too much off a single season. Montas may cost too much in a trade but is worth looking at. I'd rather have Pineda back and maybe Iglesias for a year. Otherwise, I'd try to find a different gem for a starter. I never liked Gray. I'd have to look at the pitchers still available before commenting further. I'd also raise the amount spent to 150 mil and see what we can get for Sano and Donaldson but don't give them away.
