  1. Anyone have anything on Michael Helman? He put together a solid season last year at A+. Now so far this season he is putting up pretty good numbers across AA/AAA. The Twins had him play in the Arizona Fall League after last year too. I would think that would mean the Twins have a positive opinion about him.
  2. Drew Strotman has had 2 scoreless outings in 15 appearances, 3 if you count the outing on April 23rd when an unearned run scored. This is after having a 7.33 ERA in 54 IP last season for St. Paul. What in the world is going on?
  3. No, just on SeatGeek. I don't receive a discount for games not included in my season ticket package.
  4. I have a 20 game ticket package this year so I'll say what I've experienced and echo a couple things here. The weather in April sucked. Not going to expand on that. Ticket prices are interesting. For example, I looked at Monday and Tuesday for the upcoming series next week against the Tigers and found many 300 level options for $10-$12 including fees. On the flip side of that, the game Saturday night was not part of my ticket package. A friend and I were very interested in going to the game. However, by the afternoon I could not find any ticket whatsoever below $35. I know Monday/Tuesday night games are not the same as Saturday night, but for reference the stated attendance for Saturday night was 22,939 (Target Field seating capacity is 39,504). As also mentioned, concessions are a joke. It's out of hand how expensive they are. A cheeseburger and fries basket is $15. A chicken tender basket is also $13-$15. On Sunday at the game I went to the Soul Bowl stand and got one of those. That was $15 and unfortunately was not the quality I was expecting. Beers are all generally around $12-$13 I think. I got one of those big Truly cans on Sunday and it was $17/$18. Luckily, I have figured out how to use Twins Pay for my season ticket holder discount, but still. Concession prices are way too high Attendance numbers don't quite match this statement but I will say Target Field has numerous areas to stand and watch the game other than your seat. People are definitely taking advantage of that too.
  5. I'm hoping for the best, but I don't see how Kirilloff goes from "I was never pain free after the surgery" to being fine in two weeks.
  6. Why was Canterino taken out of the game after the 3rd inning? Did he throw a lot of pitches that inning?
  7. There is just no way the Twins would have come to a different conclusion. Hindsight is pointless in this situation. That 2021 season you are touting as "one of the best seasons of his career" for Cron, he put up a 131 OPS+. Very good, still worse than the 139 OPS+ Miguel Sano put up in his 2019 season when they were on the same team. A month ago, you wrote an article about the top 5 prospects in Twins history (you rank Miguel Sano #3). In the article, you state his top 100 peak was the #4 prospect in baseball, he was included on top 100 lists for five consecutive seasons, and multiple lists included him as a top-15 prospect for consecutive seasons. One of the best prospects in organization history hits 34 dingers in 105 games while putting up a 139 OPS+ in his age 26 season vs a 29 year old waiver claim who hit 25 home runs and had a 104 OPS+ in 125 games. To even suggest the Twins should have made a different decision is preposterous. Just imagine what the reaction would have been to that.
  8. Three years of team control doesn't matter for Paddack is he doesn't start pitching a whole lot better. I'm excited for his potential. It could be a big win for the Twins if he improves. But yeah the fact is he hasn't been good the last two years and the team control doesn't matter if he pitches like that. Losing Rogers sucks but isn't shocking. Definitely need one of the young guys to step up in the bullpen
  9. There is no reason to be concerned about this. Jose Miranda a year ago was left unprotected for the Rule 5 draft and was looking like a utility player at best. Prospects develop every year. There are quite a few names mentioned in the article and in the comments section that have the potential to be top 100 prospects. There is a draft every single year. It helps to be drafting higher in the first round, but plenty of our top prospects were drafted in rounds 2-7. The Twins have actually been terrible on hitting on their first round picks. Teams also sign international prospects every year. Every single year teams have the opportunity to improve/restock their farm system.
