  1. A lot of people on TD seem to think that is the way it works. "Just sign Correa and Rodon."
  2. MLB's First Ever Black Friday Sale!!! 30% off all Free Agents!!! EXAMPLES Aaron Judge was 10 years for $450M, now 10/$315M Justin Verlander was 3/$120M, now 3/$84M. Carlos Correa was 8/$280M, now just 8/$196M. Sale ends at midnight tonight. Don't miss out!!!! View full rumor

  4. That's a smart approach. But if Boras wants to stretch this out to February, the Twins should withdraw their offer and go after Dansby Swanson. Good offensive numbers and Gold Glove defense. And cheaper!
  5. My belief is that the Twins will make a strong bid for a SS, but will not get one. There are several teams looking for a SS who have budgets that are $80M or higher than the Twin's. Farmer fits in perfectly. BUT, if the Twins do land one of the big four SS, Farmer can fill in all over the infield. I also think that if none of the young outfielders stands out in spring training, Farmer could take over LF until a better solution is found.
  6. Who is this "Buxton" guy? Does he actually play for the Twins?
  7. I wasn't sure if you meant the original post, DocBauer's response, or your post asking for "likes" so I "liked" all three.
  8. Both of these players have spent years, not weeks, in the minors already. So using your own logic, it's time to give them a shot at the Bigs.
  9. Bring both to Target Field - Martin in LF and Julien at 2B. Make the best deal for Polanco and Keplar as possible. Bring in two RPs, a catcher, one of the Big Four SS, and see what money you have left over for souvenirs at the winter meetings.
  10. My Opinion I would offer Correa a 10-year, $310M, front-loaded contract. The 1st year would be $40M and would decrease by $2M each year. This would benefit Correa because of the present value factor (money earned now is worth more than the same amount earned in the future). And it would benefit the Twins in two ways. It would lock down the shortstop position for at least the next five years and would give the Twins payroll flexibility as Correa's skills diminish.
  11. 1. Bullpen 2. Shortstop 3. Bullpen 4. Bullpen 5. Left Field 6. Bullpen Etc.....
  12. I wish the players would follow the conditioning protocols of possibly the greatest ballplayer in history - Babe Ruth. He hardly ever missed a game even when his hangover was pounding away.
  13. Contreras is a .240 hitter who drives in about 55 runs a year. Do the Twins want to give a big contract to an aging catcher with modest offense?
