  1. Scenario A is, to me, what's going on here. I think it also signals the end of Gordon as an infielder. Until injuries make that a need.
  2. Back to card sorting season. Here's an '81 Carew
  3. I'm good with Jeffers. And a sidekick. Bigger bases. More steals. I'm failing to see the logic that being 3"closer together means more stolen bases. It also means 3" less the catchers need to throw. It evens out.
  4. I'm still high on this kid. Clearly his middle season numbers coinsided with his covid and return. It lingers. A good changeup could do him wonders, try to get away from the curve he likes to keep hanging.
  5. Like everyone else is saying, I don't see them getting value return. He needs to get back to swinging at first pitch strikes like he did in '19. His contact is team friendly and until these others can prove their ability to stay healthy, we kind of need him out there.
  6. What if... What happens to Miranda if the trade had never been made and Donaldson had a good year? Another way the twins won today trade...
  7. I always thought the trade was made with very strong input from Tingler because he managed them both. And that Pagan want going anywhere because they had another year of team control. New pitch or not, the improvement in stats could also be due to the change in roles, from high leverage to mop up. Year to year - relief pitchers have to be the least predictable players on all of sports. Sample size is just too low and circumstances change all the time.
  8. Is there a thread somewhere that lists all the players contact status (length) ? I've been looking forward to an article like this since July. I always keep an eye on the long-term outlook, as though I owned the team
  9. Another point, even if we knew 100% that Lewis was coming back good as new, he's still not getting there until May or June so we have to waste a roster spot for an interim SS. Assuming Correa isn't coming back.
  10. Sign him for the year. Until Kiriloff proves he can stay healthy you can't count on him.
  11. The base problem with the 2022 Twins is how the front office constructed the team, especially the pitching staff, and it’s failure to develop pitching in its farm system

      I agree wholeheartedly on the "FO constructed the team" part. And they could do better on the development of pitching. Winder, Ober, Woods-Richardson and maybe Balozovic plus Duran and Moran could mitigate that evaluation.

  12. Last year's team, for me, was defined by a game in Oakland where Buxton did everything he could to win the game and Blankenhorn, Donaldson, and Araezz blew the game. This year it was a Friday night game in Cleveland in which Buxton could not even pinch hit in a tie game
