  1. The only way I would consider trading Sano~ for Bell strait up. Then, trade Bell for pitching. This could also accomplish by a 3 team trade.
  2. I am not a fan of Snell at this time. I would prefer Clevinger over Snell because I feel his utility is better suited to the Twins than Snell. My 1st choice is with Marlins for Lopez, 2nd choice with the Reds for Costillio or “A”s for Montas. Reliefers are my primary desire such as (1)Marlins for Bass (2) D- Backs for Multipy (3) Pirates for Bednar (4) Cubs for Givens. If you sign good proven relief pitchers, then, you may not need any starting pitchers.
  3. A sweep of the Rangers, a split with the Brewers an 3 of 4 from theCWS. Twins will make 2 trades for relievers with Marlins, Pirates or D-Backs. There’s a long shot trade with the Marlins, “A’s”, or Reds for established starting pitcher as key. #1-My Marlin trade for Lopez or Cabrera & Bass rrp and Twins give up either Celestinio &/or Urbana & Sabato & Cavaco & Canterino. #2-My Pirates trade for Bednar and Twins give up Canterino & Strotsman. #3-My “A”s trade for Montas, Blackburn & Piscotty and the Twins give up Martin, Canterino, Sabato & Strotsman. Piscotty as enticement for the “A”s to lessen payroll. Piscotty’s option can be turned down by the team. . #4- My D-Backs trade for Multiple rrp and Twins give Strotman & Cavaco/or player to be named later. #5-My trade with the Reds would be for Costillio or Mahle and would cost a combination of above prospects. The prices of these trades aren’t cheap but worth it . It may take a little more from the Twins to complete a couple these trades The Twins in relief pitchers are weak and short in numbers and may be the later part of 2023 until mlb ready. if the Twins win 7 & lose 2 games the record will 54-40 with 68 games to play. If the Twins go 5wins & 4 loses there record will be 52-42. So the remaining schedule of games favors the Twins. The magic number will go down proportionally too. The availability of FA players this fall will not change much from players who may be available now. The Twins quality of relief pitching needs will be no more valuable then as it is now without trades. But the chance for the Twins to play in post season play may decrease or be eliminated without improving relief pitching now.

  5. I like Bass & Bednar and they may cost what there worth. That’s ok. The Marlins are looking for position players especially out field. Celestino or Urbina. Pittsburgh (Bednar) may take more pitching and position prospects. Sabato, Canterino & Strotsman. When I look at the Twins current roster promotions and the prospects list I see the named prospects as extendable. I also see Martin & maybe Wallner extendable for a starting pitcher such as Lopez (Marlins), Costillio (Reds), Montas (A’s), Mahle (Reds). Another Marlin pitching prospect who is on the ten day injury list Cabrera is very intriguing to me.
  6. I am glad the Twins are where they are and they find a way to get it done. There are 11 other ALC teams that would gladly change places with theTwins. That’s why we play the game.
  7. Celestino has always been lite with the bat but strong glove. If you don’t want him in the outfield in the mlb and not atAAA. Then maybe it’s time to find out much he worth and trade him for relief or starting pitcher. I have become a fan of Gordon the switch blade and value him over Celestino.
  8. If & when a player is sent down and never makes it back to the mlb because the player called up as a fill in player takes hold and does very well. No 2 players are alike and may react differently to a stimulus and timelines may very a great of the time.
  9. Sano~ is a damn if you do and damn if you don’t situation. The current situation about Sano~ is very stressful. How many miles of rope do give a guy like Sano~ to make improvements with no results. Maybe the Sano~ situation is one that will never improve within the Twins organization. Maybe the Twins need to cut their frustration and the frustration for Sano~ too by letting him go.
  10. Successful coaches have something special. If you want a warm body to be your coach that’s ok for you but not for me. Coaching isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. There are so many skills to successful coaching. There is no good road map to good coaching because the road is the map.
  11. I hate to see Wes leave. He is a heck of a communicator, coach. Money is money but collegiate baseball is a completely different culture from baseball. God’s speed and good luck Wes.
  12. I from time am disappointed in the outcome of Baldillio’s decisions. And I do my share of bellyache-ing too. But then I think he does win 2 out 3 seasons near a 60% win ratio. Not many clubs or managers have accomplished that. Managing in 2022 is vastly different the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s. Players, management, & fans have changed considerably.. Managers have to be tech savvy, data base analytical, & excellent communicators. There may be some truth in an old adage “if you live by the numbers, then, you may die by the numbers”! In baseball there are 2 sets of numbers “for” & “against or contra numbers or moves. We’ll have wait until the 162 game season is over to determine the amount of success.
  13. The Twins are in the now time to improve the roster because the Twins may have a better in 23 than 22 and not make the playoffs Whereas in 22 they have a reasonable chance to make the playoffs. The 23 roster is in doubt and injuries can change things in a heart beat. The need to make an attempt to trade for good closer, & starting pitcher. So what if the Twins need to move a high prospect such as Martin, Balazovic, from the top ten one or two from the 10-20 and one or two from 21-30 prospects. We know who the early trade candidates are but the other clubs will be inventorying their rosters and a surprise may be available. A top prospect age 24 with no mlb experience for a 28 year old seasoned mlb-er with decent stats may be a very worth while trade.
  14. I for one enjoy having Correa playing for the Twins. He has brought much needed inspiration to the Twins and the fans.. He is a joy to watch. My hope is that the Twins find a way to keep Correa until he retires. Then, I hope to see his #4 retired and placed on the wall.
  15. This should be a good game with the winning by 2.
