    Are you worried Pohlad can’t afford another yacht?

    D, because we had to pay almost all of Rogers salary and still got back a questionable starter. Rooker wasn't going to ever be a full time player so no loss there. The PTBNL better turn out to be a diamond in the rough.

    My head is spinning on this one. I hate this trade. Hopefully more is coming.

    Your wish is granted. With the lockout there can be no trades.
    This will sadly drag into March and hopefully get resolved in time for another quick Spring Training before the season starts.

    The Padres say 👋
    Also, tone down the condescension... again.
    Strictly going by the numbers, the Twins are down roughly $45m over previous payrolls. They CAN afford to sign a $150m deal should they choose to do so. We can argue the merits of signing a contract that large but this franchise is certainly capable of affording a contract of that size. They took on a nearly $200m contract over ten years ago, they can certainly do the same today.

    I'm also not trying to defend owners either. They only acted first by starting the lockout. The players would have waited until either the All Star game or August and went on strike when it would hurt the owners most.
    Neither party is willing to negotiate until they have to. How dumb was it that they met for 7 minutes on the final day before the lockout started.
    Players make way too much money and owners are also greedy. I would love it if the owners would be forced to share more revenue with their state if their stadium was paid for with state funding. It would be a nice FU by the players to make the teams distribute more money back to the state.

    Don't forget that nearly all owners never pay for their stadiums.
    Until they disclose their financials they can tell you that they are losing money without having to prove it. Atlanta is the only team that has to disclose their numbers since they are a publicly traded stock now.
    I can't wait to hear teams cry about having a floor for payroll and they claim they can't afford to get their payroll to say, 80 million. If that is the case force them to either sell the team or comply. With all the revenue sharing and all other sources of income teams bring in I can't see how any team can't do that.

    I am willing to bet it will be Gordon at SS at the start of the year.  Unless we pull a trade off for a cheap decent SS.

    They are just trying to do whatever they can for Oakland to lose interest in them so they can go to Las Vegas.  Pretty sad when a team with so much his history will be moving soon.

    I saw a very disturbing post saying the A's will be cutting payroll and aiming for a $50M budget. That means everyone is available.  Could be a great way to rebuild the rotation by dismantling theirs.
     
    Chapman & Olson would be great to acquire as well. But the main objective should be pitching, pitching, and more pitching.  I would not have any issues trading prospects (lottery tickets) for proven talent.
