  1. I think the struggles of one of the top pitching prospects in AAA is a bigger story, but I get others don't agree.
  2. Kiriloff played first last year, and was great. He is a first baseman. Why not Terry? Because he most likely isn't close to the player the others are. Might be. But not likely.
  3. Gordon and Arraez were moved out of desperation. I don't get how context seems not to matter to how we think about their decision making.
  4. I think top end starting pitcher is the biggest weakness. We just don't know about any of these guys other than probably Gray and maybe Ryan and Ober. But none of those is elite. LF is fine. Any issues there are short term. 1B? I'd consider Larnach there, but his arm has been surprisingly effective in LF. Arraez is fine there. Really, 3B is the biggest issue, and if the incumbent doesn't hit, Lewis should be there this year. If you look at the bad teams, there isn't much the Twins could use.....other than Montas, imo.
  5. Ya, MN is definitely winning the weather war the last few weeks. The last 6 here have mostly been not great. At some point that will change.
  6. All good points on why I would care. Thanks for the good post.
  7. No one is concerned about playing time for bench players, we are concerned how often Lewis plays if he replaces a bench player on the roster. And, is anyone really defending it? I think people are open to it not being stupid, proving the FO doesn't care, etc......
  8. Hey look, it is below normal temps an pouring again. Sigh (yes, I know you don't care, so what).
  9. Come one. They aren't keeping Lewis down until 2025. Sigh.
  10. Wow, just looked at Fangraphs....even with his D Gio has negative WAR (meanwhile, that other guy Dicky mentioned is 2nd in WAR, so, pretty close). I guess 3B is the spot to upgrade. If only Lewis could play there.....
  11. Which was what I was trying to do....clear up roster space. When you look at the leaderboards, there just isn't a lot of space to "fix" this roster right now.
  12. Those moves were made last year out of desperation. But it would still have been a good question (not that I actually care what the FO or manager says in public).
  13. So far. Where else are you improving the roster? 3B is either Gio or Lewis or Miranda. 1B is either Arraez or Miranda or ? DH? Surprisingly, Sanchez is now hitting around 20% better than league average. Not one OF needs replacing. If you like Miranda or Lewis at third, you aren't dealing for one of those. People love Arraez, so he's your 1B or DH, I assume. That leaves C (where they Twins have one of the better combos in the game, that's how bad C is this year across the league).
  14. So, don't trade for a really good SP? I'm ok with that, but people need to stop complaining they aren't trying to win this year then......He's also a top 20 pitcher so far this year.
