    He took a masking agent, and believing it was for the reason he suggested seems thick to me. The ONLY reason you don’t run that by the Twins staff is because you don’t want the answer.

    Thanks for making my point. "Uninformed fan" is exactly the kind of comment I was talking about in my post, and you led off with it. Well played.

    Unfortunately, while it's certainly the smallest of small sample sizes, I left Phoenix after the weekend thoroughly unimpressed with the Twins AFL contingent.
     
    None of them looked ready to contribute to the Twins any time soon, to me.

    USAFChief reacted to gunnarthor in WARNE: Twins Unequivocally Did the Right Thing at the Trade Deadline   
    The issue of selling at the deadline rides on one question - were the Twins contenders for the playoffs this year? The answer was yes. The new, smart FO didn't know that. The trades themselves look ok enough but it's not like we received anything overly great back. So we punted on a winnable season and that was only salvaged by the players who won despite the lack of resources from the FO. 
     
    I don't know much about social media but it seems quite small to attack the tweeter in question as much as you did. Perhaps there is more to it than what you published on TD but his tweet wasn't mind bending.

    It’s rather...illogical, since you claim to argue from logic...to state there can be varying levels of certainty in a debate, but then dismiss another’s claim because there’s “no evidence” for that position. And then spend paragraphs dismissing or refuting the very evidence you claim isn’t there.
     
    Illogical to claim you can’t use results to argue process, then spend paragraphs showing how trading Kintzler didn’t have any actual effect on results.
     
    Illogical to make claims about Otani and international FA money...which weren’t made at the time of the trade. And also haven’t proven to be worth a penny yet, BTW.
     
     
    The Twins were in contention for a postseason spot for EVERY single day of the 2017 season. Every. Single. Day. Including around the deadline.
     
    And speaking of which....Fangraphs’ playoff odds? As a logical argument point?? Really??? Those numbers are concocted out of thin air. They’re based on nothing. They are virtually meaningless. They are a guess, just like your guess, mine, and the guy you’re dismissing’s guess.
     
    They HAD NO business trading away pitching at the deadline. None. In fact, They should have added pitching. They were a contending team in need of pitching. Still are, BTW. That’s every bit as logical as your position...and my opinion (held at the time) is the one borne out by events. Not yours.
     
    To argue otherwise is, well, it’s illogical.

    Thanks, ChiTown. I know I'm hardly the personification of perfection (probably a lot closer to the other end of the spectrum), but it is EXACTLY this reason I am barely present on here anymore - and I'm sure I speak for a broad range of posters. I won't say any more on the subject because you handled it a lot better than I ever could ... but thanks.
     
    And by the way, kudos on keeping it down to 1,285 words.

    I thought it was reasonable for TR to return to stabilize things when Smith was let go. A year or so while ownership sought out a young GM from outside the org.
     
    But it's now passed the time that should have happened. Too risk averse, too resistant to change, too cost conscious. Too old-school, and I'm generally an old school fan.
     
    We should already be well into a new era. And that opinion wasn't formed by a horrible seven game stretch to open 2016.
     
    Nice blog, BTW.
