    Twins looking inspired by the 2021 Giants blueprint. Gausman and DeScalfani being middle aged guys with long track records of #5 starters after being top prospects so long ago that no one cares, and the Giants unlock both of them for cheap in a jackpot offseason. Bundy fits that profile of former top prospect who is now a journeyman #4/5, small chance he becomes more but maybe we’re lucky. Either way, we need bodies in the rotation.

    I mostly like this plan because it contains multiple Iglesiai.

    I .... don't get it. Maybe they just have a lot more young talent than I'm aware of, but this feels like they're jumping the gun, or trying to load up on a loaded market for flipping purposes, but still ending up paying full price.

    I agree. I don't see a downside to the MVP vote bonuses. If he's getting those votes, the money will be well spent.
    Awesome job by the front office. It would have been devastating to lose our best player since Mauer and Johan.

    This is a pretty team friendly deal. Makes me wonder what took so long?
    Really looking forward to watching Buck for the next 7 years.

    I have thought about this one a lot since you spoke about it on the podcast - and the more I think about it the more I like it.
    I mean, yeah, who wouldn’t be super pumped to see one of the amazingly talented shortstops available sign with the twins? But realistically if we have to pay one of them over $20M that’s going to hamper our starting pitching big time. Plus I highly doubt any of them would be looking for a short term deal. 
     
    I like the idea of Segura - offensively he is a massive improvement, and defensively he’s not Simmons but Polanco also wasn’t a stellar defensive shortstop and we had him there. 
     
    And as much as I loathe the idea of trading someone like Arraez, signing Segura would mean we could potentially float him as a trade candidate, which might be the kind of piece that - when coupled with a prospect - gets some looks in exchange for pitching quality.

    So the Twins hire Jayce Tingler to be their bench coach after he was just fired by San Diego for managing a team full of stars to a 79-83 record and a third place finish in his one full season as the Padres skipper.. Why am I not surprised? On the plus side he does speak English and Spanish.
