    Once again, Rocco not being able to manage in-game decisions.

    Yep. The odds of crooked numbers increase dramatically with each extra out provided to the opposing team.

    The highs and lows during this game was crazy. Really disappointing that 10 runs wasn’t enough to win. Even more disappointing that the bullpen gave up 7 runs from the 7th inning on. 
    I still hold the belief that Cleveland is playing extremely lucky baseball and it’s not going to last throughout the summer. It will all even out. The question is, can we cobble together a bullpen internally and keep the ship from sinking over the next month?

    I think we could do the contract.  I think an 8 year 280 million or 9 year 300 million is the ballpark of a solid contract.  Remember to add 1 year and 35.1 million to your contracts to get to where he was trying to get to last offseason.  
     
    Now for the fun part.  We have lots of cheap talent so we can afford his salary.  What about 4-6 seasons in when everyone else gets expensive.  We could bow the contract so we have more money during those years.
    season 1 - 42.5 million
    season 2 - 42.5 million
    Season 3 - 40 million
    season 4 - 25 million
    Season 5 - 20 million 
    season 6 - 30 million 
    season 7 - 40 million
    season 8 - 40 million
    season 9 - 20 million
    9 year 300,000,000 contract.  Opt out after season 5 and 8.

    Your deal does make more sense for the Twins, but not Correa. It is roughly $100 million less, and there is close to zero chance Correa will make $100 million while he is 35-37 (it certainly wouldn't be at SS). That means it is DEEPLY in his interest to max out his current worth now when he can lure a team into thinking the wasted end-contract seasons are worth it.
    Barring injury, or his performance going in the tank (which I don't expect), Correa will opt out.
    If/when he opts out, he probably has about 5 years where he might be worth $35 million per, and that is as far as the Twins should look. in their offers. If/when he signs elsewhere, we should tip our cap for (hopefully) a great year, and take that $35 mill out for a spin on the FA market.

    I just have a hard time with all these trade projections.  Are they really better than what we have?

    A few take aways; If Buxton was playing (I guess Rocco thinks he needs 1 or 2 days off per week now) the 4th inning probably doesn't get away. That 1st ball is caught and you never get that deep into the inning IMO. Why was Bundy left in for another inning? Rocco was plenty quick to use the hook on Ryan our presumed ace, yet he gave Bundy so much rope he could have hung himself twice. Also, how unlucky do you have to be to hit the ball so hard at so many infielders to hit into so many DP's. Lastly, I wonder if the boys have heard or read too much about their D lately, as it sure looked like a couple of times they were just hoping for a miracle.

    Well, at least our $100 million dollar man got to take his "scheduled" day off. I would hate to see him out there helping his team too much. Kinda feel like he gets enough days off with all of his injuries, he should be out there when he is available.

    Sending Bundy back out there after he gave up six runs: classic Baldelli move. Bundy then giving up three more runs: classic Baldelli result.
