  1. Consider me overly hopeful & extremely generous then. I am certainly doubtful it will happen, but if we are deep in the playoffs in 2025 (which is only three years away) then I will do a happy dance. If the team craps its pants over the next few seasons and/or continue to be mediocre then it'll be time for change
  2. I am willing to give this FO a full decade, but don't know that it will do any good. They seem to have difficulty recognizing talent and seem to underestimate risks. The pitching staffs struggle with development throughout the farm system and they traded away some of the young pitchers I was most excited to get (Graterol & Petty). I don't see FA pitchers wanting to pitch to our catchers or suffer from our defense and lack of offensive production. Overall I have more hope for every other Minnesota team, including the Lynx who are losing their best player and looked a mess, than I do for this team. By 2025, I better be wrong or the FO better be gone.
  3. Ah.. it's the old "I'm going to trade my best relief pitcher for peanuts, and turn those peanuts into peanut butter that will stick to the roof of my mouth, ruining my day" bit.. this is Twin's Territory
  4. hmm.. i don't think any team would trade their bullpen for ours. in fact, i think every team would happily take facing our bullpen compared to any other one
  5. some thoughts: it is a long season, but really less games means less pay for workers at the games. the shift is an adjustment made by the team playing defense, so the team playing offense needs to adjust to that. the pitch clock is just wrong, making the game quality worse to save ten minutes. there should be a salary cap, as this is the most lopsided sport anywhere. you can almost pick the WS winner from a pool of 8 teams. the umpires are the worst judges in all of sports, even the Olympics. let's not pretend there isn't bias and general idiocy. mine is that the DH should not even exist, instead of being universal. if you can't play in the field or pitch, then you shouldn't be allowed to hit. with the difference between the AL and NL gone, one league and one large playoff would be more interesting
  6. I have run out of fingers and toes to count the mistakes our FO has made over the years. I try to remain optimistic, however, and don't reflect on the past. As much as I feel this we aren't going to be "competitive" this year, progression should be the focus.
  7. Well.. at least this group will get people to buy tickets, but i don't think they'll make the playoffs and if they do, the streak will likely continue.
  8. IMO At least we won't lose yet another playoff game to extend the streak. Please prove me wrong by 1)making the playoffs and 2)winning a playoff game without a single proven, solid BP pitcher. Hate this trade if we think we are competing, love it if we are true to the fact we really are not
  9. The Yankees beat us again.. they got the best player in the trade, the better of the two catchers, and the better of the two other infielders. Basically they gave us what they no longer wanted and we accepted it.
  10. Ah.. finally we did something. Obviously not what was expected, but getting younger, and at a position of need is a plus IMO. Our window is still a year or two away, so at least the FO seems to know that.
  11. as it is for all Minnesota teams: if it seems too good to be true, it probably is
