  1. You are assuming that he was willing to resign with the Twins, which we never got any indication of. The Twins tried at least 3 times (that we know of) to extend him and he rejected every overture they made to him. By all accounts he wanted to test the open market, free agency. That screams I want to get out of Minnesota. The Twins would have been absolutely foolish to just let him walk in free agency if that is the case. They made the right move in trading him while they still had a chance.
  2. sounds like the Twins have already made multiple offers to extend him and he's turned them all down. Time to trade i guess.
  3. Can the Twins accidently improve moving forward this season? Not likely, their pitching is the worst it's been since the mid 90's. This team will get worse once they peak on this current winning streak. They will quickly slide down into oblivion forever and ever and ever.
  4. Exactly. What is his average now .100? We'll be half way through the season with a sub .200 average season from him and the excuses will still be flying in on this forum. I call a spade a spade.
  5. I agree, at 80 pitches there's absolutely no reason Pineda can't at least start the eight inning. Facing the lineup a third time is overrated that late in the game IMO.
  6. yes that is true but he's starting REALLY slow this season.
  7. I agree. I think a trade would be beneficial at some point to free up the spot at 1st or permanently move him to DH. it is what it is.
  8. Yep. I've never been impressed with dumpster diving moves or looking for great deals in tent cities.
  9. That's a reality of being a Twins fan unfortunately. It will take this team another 30 years to win their next world series with the way the FO and ownership are currently puttering along. That is if they get lucky. Been watching this team since the mid 80's and i see no signs they are willing to go to the next level. NONE.
  10. "HAD" not has until he can prove otherwise.
  11. We aren't going to see a return to pre 2020 covid attendance levels for the next few years i think. That's gonna hammer ALL sports franchises, not just MLB. I fully expect it to drag down salaries / reduce what owners are willing to spend on payrolls, and even cause contraction or relocation of many of the marginal franchises in MLB, NFL, NHL, etc. An Example is Tampa Bay which has consistently low attendance numbers and low revenue, but is being held hostage in a toilet bowl of a stadium by the City of St. Petersburg. In a few years they will be splitting games or will flat out relocate to someplace like Montreal (which i personally think is a terrible location given the LONG history of very low attendance numbers the Expos had in Olympic Stadium, another toilet bowl of a stadium), orrrr they may fold altogether.
  12. I have MANY Canadian inlaws and totally disagree with this post. Montreal IS NOT a baseball town period. In their 35 year history beginning in 1969 and ending in 2004 they only drew over 2 million fans 4 times, all in the early 80's. Most seasons they finished around 1.5 million fans and that is TERRIBLE. If the Rays must be moved, move them to Nashville or Charlotte. Almost every Canadian i know couldn't give two hoots about baseball. In fact most of them loath it. The Blue Jays are the one exception being in the mega metropolis of Toronto and even they are middle of league (low to mid 2 millions) in attendance in most years.
