    terrydactyls got a reaction from yeahyabetcha in 7 step plan for offseason   
    If you are just going to throw out off-season goals without any pathway to achieving them, why not set your sights higher?  How about: just sign Max Scherzer, Kevin Gausman, Robbie Ray, Carlos Rodon, Marcus Stroman, and Noah Syndergaard as starters, Javier Biez, Freddie Freeman, and Carlos Correa to strengthen the infield, Chris Taylor and Sterling Marte as utility players.  Okay, front office, now go get it done.  Oh wait!!  Get three of four outstanding relief pitchers while you're out shopping.  And pick up a Snickers Bar for me.  Easy - Peasey.

    I vote for adding a glove guy like Iglesias and spend big on Buxton and pitching.

    You certainly pulled that response out of thin air.  The commenter never said he was satisfied about any win total.  All he mentioned was that the Twins won more games than any other last place team.  Dispute what he said, not your opinion of something you think he might be vaguely implying.  Or try something completely different for you - say something positive about the Twins.

    terrydactyls reacted to beckmt in Velocity Is (Still) a Problem for the Minnesota Twins   
    Movement to me is the key, along with command.  A 98 MPH fastball with no movement will eventually get hammered.  A 93 MPH fastball with a lot of movement is a big issue to batters.  With Mario Rivera most players knew what was coming, with the movement they still could not hit it.

    I'm an old fart so I'll use old school language.  It's quite possible that he just figured out what worked and went with it.  Or he matured.  Or he gained confidence in his abilities. Hard to display these statements with graphs, charts, 8x12 color glossy pictures (go to Blockbuster and rent Alice's Restaurant), or any other visual aids, but it works for me.

    Watching players in the Metrodome trying to find fly balls.  That was hilarious.  What a crappy stadium.

    I respect your opinion, but I disagree with almost everything you say and the assumptions you make.

    And who were the three big spenders last off season - the darlings of the hot stove league?  Philadelphia, Toronto, and San Diego.  How many made the playoffs?  None!  Money apparently doesn't buy happiness or a division winning team.  Make smart moves, not expensive moves.
