    I like Navarez a lot and since we have the funds, I would even go 2 yrs and 11-13 million Total. Ledt handed and great 60-65% platoon with Jeffers

    Agreed whole heartedly with this take.
    I don't know who I saw pose the suggestion on here first (all credit to them for this), but Omar Narvaez at $4mil for a season seems like the perfect Jason Castro impersonator to pair with Jeffers.

    The closest pitching BTV to Guillorme is Paddack or Woods-Richardson. Would you trade either for Guillorme? Would the Mets decline and seek a deal from another team given Paddack’s injury status and Woods-Richardson’s inexperience?

    Maybe Urshela was a salary dump, maybe he wasn't. One thing is clear, if the Twins want Arraez getting the majority of at bats at 1B then they needed to find a place for Miranda and Urshela was blocking him there. 1B wasn't Miranda's natural position to begin with. Farmer fills a hole. Miranda now fills a hole. Arraez now has his hole to himself. Polanco can stay at 2B. Gordon can stay in the OF or be emergency infielder. Farmer is emergency catcher. If Lewis or Lee or Martin make it this year, great! Push Farmer, push Miranda, push Kepler outta here if he's still here. Use money saved for an ACE and another shutdown arm in the pen. make the entire team better, not just one position, shortstop.

    As if the Twins should be trading "pitching depth" to the Mets. LOL

    I love this trade!
    If we have learned anything from the last few years it is that a utility infielder will find a way to get 400+ PAs. Farmer is a much better fit for this team and this role than Urshela, Arraez, Gordon, or Miranda.
    This also opens up a possibile trade with the Giants for Crawford on the cheap* (Giants pick up $10mil of his final contract year) to be the strong side of the platoon at SS, should the Giants outbid the Twins for Correa😂 
    Having Crawford/Farmer at SS keeps the seat warm for Lewis/Martin/Lee for a year with no commitment beyond that. They'd probably be a 3 WAR platoon in 2023. Not bad.
    *I have heard on pods that Crawford is being shopped spcifically to make room for Correa

    Guillorme is a great pull. Had to look him up. NICE!
    Mets might trade him for pitching depth as they have almost no MLB pitching staff in place...literally. It's kind of hilarious looking at their Roster Resource page right now. Scherzer, Peterson, and Diaz, are pretty much the staff at this point.

    After letting Palacios go we had exactly 0 legit SS. Now we have one and a floor to build on, plus a LHP killer that they want to focus on. Although he's not my 1st choice, he is a good choice. My 1st choice is Luis Guillorme, like Farmer & Hoerner he's been a frustrated SS that has been all over the INF not having much of an opportunity to play his position because Lindor is playing there. If given an opportunity to play SS on more of a regular basis he could also shine plus he bats LH.

    Farmer will likely be a utility infielder in 2023, he’ll mash lefties but will likely need to show he’s worth a pay raise for 2024 if the Twins want to hold him until free Agency.

    I’m of the opinion that a good way to regret something is to sign a 30+ year old sketchy defensive catcher to a long term deal. I’m a solid pass on Contreras, especially given the fact he’s literally the only good catching option this off-season. Someone is going to overpay for his services because he’s the only legit option and I hope it’s not the Twins. Jeffers and someone like Narvaez is fine for 2023.

    I’m of the opinion they have far too much open payroll this off-season to just pass on legitimately addressing shortstop.
    People are overrating the likelihood of Royce Lewis becoming even a decent starting shortstop. I think he has legit tools to become a good MLB player but putting it all together at shortstop is a much higher bar than elsewhere on the field.

    It's possible for up the middle talent to be "superfluous", but the Twins aren't there yet.  I see this as an evolutionary move, certainly not revolutionary.

    Lets be honest - The Twins didn't win with C4 as our Opening Day shortstop either.  One stud is not enough to win in baseball.

    I believe Farmer is the insurance policy at ss. If they can't sign one of the big $$ guys. Otherwise he can be a Garlick type with a better glove.
