  1. If you can trade Miguel Sano for a pair of pants and you don’t have to pay any money to pant’s owner do it.
  2. Rocco got ejected due to his own frustration of keeping all his relievers in too long. It was like he thought the game was over in the fifth inning. Also, DFA Duffey.
  3. Our lower minor league teams are stacked this year! Let’s not take that for granted
  4. We just DFA’ed Vallimont finally and Coloumbe is back but Strotman is still pretty young. His numbers aren’t too encouraging but actually better than last year before today. He’s still more than two years younger than most of the team in St Paul. CES has to prove he can field. 11 errors at third this season??? I dislike power hitters that can’t field at such low levels.
  5. Big bounce back win for Joe Ryan. Hopefully Gary Sanchez can keep this going and who doesn’t love Luis Arraez post game interviews???
  6. Emilio scares me and he is due for regression. His walks will bite him, and Jeffers’ framing and blocking won’t always be there to save him. I trust Duran more, and I’m starting to see Cano flourish. I’d rather have Pagan in less high leverage positions.
  7. 1. I’m so with you that Miranda needs to be back at AAA. Needs some more time. Not too worried long-term. 2. Very excited for Larnach to be back. Should be this week. Who would’ve thought Larnach would be better than Kiriloff this pint last season? 3. Contreras should be optioned this week. Wish he would’ve gotten more of a chance. 4. When Ober comes back Smeltzer will likely be optioned. 5. I want Archer out of the rotation when Ober comes back. Winder should hold onto a spot and we’ll see how Bundy fares next time around. I’d rather have Smeltzer than Archer even though I’m not high on Devin.
  8. First, I think we’re better without early season Sano. Also, I’m really worried about Krilloff and Im not confident he will ever be back to normal with his wrist. Im also not confident on Smeltzer being back in the rotation. He’s a Triple A guy until something drastic occurs.
  9. Good things from young hitters today! Chris Williams is a name that’s been around too! Boy would it be nice to see Blayne Enlow hold it together and stay healthy.
  10. Our 2021 draft picks have done really well so far this season (20 of them). The pitchers especially have been great to see perform in the low minors. Mike Paredes (18th round), Travis Adams (6th round), David Festa (13th round), and obviously Cade Povich (3rd round) are all standouts so far.
  11. I think our answer will depend on the results from the prospects we received. At face value, knowing we weren’t going to resign Berrios (he never had ace value), it was a good idea. I stand by the fact that he doesn’t have a clutch gene too. We need quality, not just consistent mediocrity.
  12. I haven’t read the article yet but I think the answer will be that he isn’t good.
  13. Hey it’s not Paddack’s fault his elbow is messed up. Otherwise he has been solid this season.
  14. Louie Varland is gonna be a beast, excited to see what he can do at Triple A later this season. He’s better than his brother! Matt Wallner heating up in May with over .340 AVG. but 37% SO rate! Need to cut down Matt! Lastly, don’t get my hopes started up on Wander Javier. The guy has been a pipe dream for years now!!
  15. Very pleased to see Canterino doing well. Just please stay healthy! I love what the Twins have been doing at many levels easing in injury prone guys.
