    I think the one thing that kills me most about the lack of anything substantial this offseason, is that the FO seems to be punting on another one of Buxton's prime years.  To me, that is the biggest offense.  I get he is hurt often, but when he is not, he is a game changer in his prime.  Last year sucked., and he was 28.  He is 29 this year, and punting that season means they will have literally wasted his best years.  That sucks.

    Some things never change. Twins should TOTALLY sign a veteran 5th starter so they can block their MiLB pitchers longer.  We all know this is going to be a rebuild year.  Let's see what the pitching pipeline can finally do

    I appreciate your optimism here, but the "hope for a tide turning season" feels very on brand for the Twins.  Why go out and create your own fate, when you can sit back and hope?!?

    If they make the World Series, and Sonny Gray is the #1 starer, that means they won some playoff series!!  I'll take that all day!!  I mean, eventually, yes, gotta get better to win a World Series, but this team has been ass for so long, I just want a playoff series win to start with.

    No, but what's the alternative? I'd fire Falvey immediately and let Thad oversee blowing it up as the interim. Sadly there is zero chance they will actually do that. But a season of 10K fans in the seats and awful TV ratings might be enough to spur the Pohlads to actually take action.

    Yeah, seems very pennywise and pound foolish to constantly ignore FA's and use prospects to acquire talent.  I get there are outliers, and examples to the contrary, but this FO has been pretty much "wait out the market, try to get a bargain or last man standing, if not, we can flip prospects".   That seems like a sketchy strategy, especially when you can literally acquire talent for just $$$ in FA, and use your prospects as cheap labor.  Obviously there is a balance.....but this never swimming in the deep end gets old
