  1. WTF
    Jacksson got a reaction from RpR in Post Lock out Moves: Potential Twins Trades   
    BEFORE any consideration is given to taking back a bad contract to enable the Twins to add attractive pieces, the trading away of Josh Donaldson and his contract needs to take place.  Arraez needs to be retained to play 3B until the next wave of talent arrives so that a MLB ready 3B is not needed in return.  So, the question remains, which team(s) would be interested in Donaldson if the price is right?

    More interesting would be to see dollar values on what it costs the organization each year to have a player at each of the minor league levels within their system. I'm talking, not only the cost of the player contract itself, but also the manager, coaches, trainers for that level as well as an allocated portion of the cost of other system wide personnel within the organization. That said, what is the cost to DRAFT a player. Not just the bonus paid out but also an allocated portion of all scouts compensation along with an allocated portion of the cost of other system wide personnel within the organization. Only when calculating this cost out can the observer gain an understanding of the TRUE financial cost of: "MISSING" on a draft choice, losing a player on waivers, losing a 6 year minor league free agent, trading a prospect, and releasing a player with multiple years within the minor league system.

    Want Aggressive?
    What would it take to get Realmutto?
    What would it take to get Starlin Castro?
    What would it take to get (one of): Paul Goldschmidt, Wil Myers, Brandon Belt?
    Failing on Castro, What would it take to get Joe Panik?
    Which relievers are available out there at what cost?

    Unfortunately, unless his bat comes alive and/or he begins to hit LHP, I don't see a long term future on the Twins for Max Kepler.

    Where are the RH power bats? The LHB friendly Metrodome is long gone and the current stadium is where LH power goes to die. Management has known about this ever since groundbreaking on the new stadium. SO WHERE ARE THE RH POWER BATS?

    Good thing the Twins were so fat and happy with pitchers that they were able to let 6 year minor league free agent - Derek Rodriguez walk and sign with San Francisco as a free agent. Look at him now.
