  1. The Twins would not be as good as they are if not for Correa. He's the type of player/influence this team has been lacking for a long time.
  2. Maybe the Twins need to keep Correa just to end that 0 - 18 streak!
  3. All three are long overdue. Tovar set the table for three HOF's behind him in the batting order. Gladden was the gutsy player with determination just like he expounds as a broadcaster. Gardy was the face of this organization, did way more for it than he'll ever get credit for. You gotta love all three of them!
  4. I remember Chance getting a weak infield single in a game and the Twins dugout made a big deal (joke) out of it, getting the game ball for him because he had been 0-40+.
  5. Tovar RF, Carew 2B. Oliva CF, Killebrew 1B, Allison LF, Rollins 3B, Cardenas SS, Roseboro C, Kaat P. 1970 starting line-up with 4 HOF's. Ulander coming off the bench and Perranoski and Worthington closing the game. They talk about Kaat's pitching but I believe he won a few Gold Gloves and he was a very good hitter too. Used on occasion as a pinch hitter. No one mentioned Griffith's outright releasing him after going 10-2 and trying to come back from a broken leg. The White Sox scarfed him up for a couple of 20 win seasons. I guess some things we'd just as soon forget. The best color analyst I've ever heard. All I can remember of Tony O was his offense and defense spectaculars and how important he has become to this organization.
  6. The Twins have a perceived strength at catcher and they need to keep it. Might be better to see how the upcoming season goes and either way it goes an in season trade might be more prudent.
  7. I don't know why they would even consider trading Garver. In my opinion catcher is the most important position player in major league baseball. Even though Jeffers and Rortvedt put up some disappointing numbers this season they are good catchers. But they are no Garver. The Twins have a strength at catching and need to keep it. Trying to plug a leak while creating another just doesn't work and this organization has proved that in the past. The fact is the Twins don't have a lot of asset strength (depth) to trade... except for maybe 3rd base.
  8. If Royce Lewis hadn't been injured I'd say move him. But with the merry-go-round of injuries this year and the lack of depth in the minors for middle infield I'd say keep him. I believe Polonco needs some some stability and to switch him back to short in the middle of the season won't do anything for the team nor for him. They committed to this move and should build upon it for 2022.
