  1. Of the teams Bonnes listed, there are very few overpriced pitchers. The only two I saw, not including pitchers who signed this year (I wouldn't touch Verlander's contract with a ten foot pole), are Yu Darvish and Jacob deGrom. You can only count deGrom as overpriced, if you think his injury and age are significant. But there is no way the twins pay $36,000,000 for anyone, even the best pitcher in baseball. That leaves Darvish. It appears the Padres didn't have to give up too much to get Darvish, so a trade is a possibility. While this is a much closer call, I don't see a Darvish for Donaldson trade.
  2. I would add the Twins Kids Club membership. For $30 dollars you get a box of Twins goodies and two tickets for the kids when they are with a parent. The tickets pay for the box and the goodies are what the kids want.
  3. Saw Brash and Kirby pitch against Wichita. Both are excellent. With J. Rod., Seattle seems to have quite the farm system. If the Twins make any trades this offseason, I would love them to make a trade with Seattle.
  4. The problem with signing Shoemaker and Happ (or nearly any free agent last year) is that 2020 was a wasted year. Look at their stats and its hard to tell if they were good or bad. A major reason for that is the sample size was too small. I imagine the same could be said with all pitchers who were not "top 5" caliber. In the end it made it much more of a toss at the dart board than it should have been. For example in 2017-2019 Happ was great. so were his average numbers in 2020 because of him aging or due to small sample size? who knows. i would tend to give falvy and levine a pass for last year. however, Bailey and Perez were headscratchers.
  5. I agree completely with WSNYDES. I would put the main reason for the Twins poor performance in as sloppy play in the field combined with underwhelming pitching.
  6. Great article. I am heading down to Davenport this weekend to see the Kernels. This will be helpful to keep in mind when watching. One of the weird things when you first look at it is the relatively high ages for the players compared to 2019. I have to keep remembering, there was no 2020 and the Kernels are now high A.
  7. Excited for the season to begin. Already have our summer road trip planned. At the end of July early August, plan on seeing the Saints in Omaha, Windsurge in Northwest Arkansas and Twins in Houston!
