  1. There's no rush. He's not going anywhere unless the Twins want him to. Let's see how 2023 goes.
  2. More than likely, and hopefully, this move has been in the works for a while now. The "effective immediately" is surprising. No matter what anyone thinks of Jim Pohlad, I'm sure no one would want it to be health related. In my opinion, I'd want Joe Pohlad to be more involved than his uncle seemed to be, more interested in the success of the team, and in more touch with the fan base. Yes, it's a business for them, and their family is in it to make a profit, but we're a long way from our two WS titles. I'd want him...to WANT to win. I guess in general...be as much a fan of the Twins and MLB baseball, as he is an owner. Hope that makes sense.
  3. Ok...but does he have control of the double zip-loc bag with all the cash, and is he willing to spend any of it?
  4. Once again...I apologize for posting the incorrect info yesterday. All the reports I saw said Johan, not Jair.
  5. Interesting...everything I'm seeing still says Johan Camargo. CBS Sports, various MLB sites, etc. Nobody has changed it yet.
  6. The report I saw said Johan Camargo, so if it turns out to be Jair Camargo, I stand corrected and apologize for posting the wrong info.
  7. A minor league deal. No specifics yet. Plays mostly SS and 3B, but has also played 2B and OF. Good utility type guy. Had a big year for Atl back in 2018. Was with Philly last year. Only 28 years old.
  8. CRF

    Clevinger

    Is going to the White Sox. He isn't a top end starter any more, but he's a good back of the rotation guy. A decent move by the pale hose.
  9. The floor? The floor is what someone is going to be picking me up from, if we actually do sign one or more of these FA's out there...including CC.
  10. I'd just like to see him healthy and put the wrist issues in the rear view mirror once and for all. He has talent, it would be great to see it on display with the big league club.
  11. I think he'll be ok. He won't be as good as Gio was last season, but he'll be serviceable. I'm assuming that he'll really work on his fielding, footwork, and throws to 1st. He'll improve as time goes on. I'm almost more concerned with his hitting. Will that at least be on the same level as this past season? Or will he regress at all? He was definitely slumping at the end of the season, and struggling with the low outside stuff. Can he adjust and hold his own at the plate?
  12. It's all about the moolah. It has nothing to do with Baldelli.
  13. I definitely could live with Swanson...he's a damn good SS and swings a pretty good stick too, but I'd be shocked if Atl lets him get away. There's a lot of time before ST, so it might be a while before stuff starts to happen.
  14. LaVelle put this out there yesterday on the Chin Music Podcast about CC. The Twins are reportedly offering different length deals at different AAVs. https://www.si.com/fannation/bringmethesports/twins/report-twins-offering-carlos-correa-multiple-contract-lengths-values?src=rss

  16. At this point, I don't believe he has much value. Any trade that he might be a part of, has to have other players involved along with him.
  17. Imo...starter until proven otherwise. Except for Ryan, pretty much every starting pitcher we have on the roster has had injury concerns in one way or another. Maeda's velo was down in 2021 due to the elbow. If he's fully recovered from the TJ surgery, there's no reason he can't be as effective as he was in 2020 and before.
  18. I'd love to see the war in the Ukraine end. Please get the little dictator away from the nukes. I personally know people who are from the Ukraine and my heart goes out to them and their country. The Waiting is a great song!
  19. In my opinion, he did a great job while he was here. I believe he was very well liked by the players too. I was disappointed when he left, but he went to Mia to be Mattingly's bench coach. I figured he get some looks at being a manager at some point.
  20. It depends on what ends up happening. If he's the everyday regular ss, because we whiff on, or don't really try for the big names, I don't think it's a good move. If he's a backup and/or a utility guy, then it's a decent move. Let's see what the FO does in the next few months.
  21. Solid player, but I honestly think the money could be better spent elsewhere.
  22. I really hope he ends up on some other team. The big problem is...his pitches...cutter, fastball, whatever, don't go 60 ft 6 inches...they go 460 feet 6 inches! He's had three straight years of below average results.
