Schoop. The classic blueprint Twins signing. Had an outlier career year two years ago. Has stunk since. But Twins assume he will regain that form and replicate the career year in perpetuity

He just played hurt last year. When healthy he is a Top 5 second baseman. I'm willing to roll the dice that he's healthy.

A couple "quote of the day" entries in there

Still pretty young and has Dozier power....wonder what Dozier wanted for a contract......plus he is 4-5 years younger than Dozier.


Like I said, he had Dozier power...for one year.


Simply not true. On a per AB basis Schoop has shown a lot of power every year.

Tim, you've turned into a bit of a Falvey-Levine nuthugger, haven't you?

Cards just traded for Goldschmidt for essentially one year. I'm ok with one year contracts.

However, the Cards will try to sign Goldschmidt to a multi year deal before he becomes a free agent next winter. And if he costs too much, they will let him go. They were smart enough to let Albert Pujols go.

If Schoop has a decent season, a one year deal won't make any sense if the Twins don't try to sign him to a multi-year deal.

As the Preacher in Blazing Saddles said applies to the Twins' Front Office,

Oh Lord! Do we have the strength to pull off this mighty task in one night...or are we just jerking off?

I see it as the Twins making a one-year run in 2019. Because by 2020 the White Sox and the next wave of Indians prospects will be up and contributing, and this will be a very difficult division to win. The Indians are susceptible this season, and the Twins are the closest competition.

But, according to your same likely source.......

Buxton and Sano will be full blown SuperStars in 2020 and so will be Lewis Thorpe.
Which leads us to our next batch of full blown SuperStars in 2021, Lewis and Kiriloff.


There’s just so much Superstarring in the AL Central Division, I can’t stand up.


But reality says, we’re all chasing New York and Boston.
Like always.

Who said anything about Falvine? I was talking strictly about Schoop and his Dozier power. Compliments to both Schoop and Dozier. Absolutely nothing about Falvine.

Twins signed Schoop and you like his power. It's for only $7 million. That's a compliment to Falvine.

As soon as any of them are actually worth a shit, the White Sox will trade them for prospects.

I'll have to take your word for it being $7M. I didn't even say to sign him, just that he has power.

Schoop is without question a power hitting second baseman. Anybody claiming different is simply denying reality. Seems like a very good fit on a reasonable contract.

How about Charilie Morton as a target for the Twins? He's getting up there in age at 35, but he can still strike guys out and would probably become our next best starter after Berrios. The biggest question mark with Morton is health, but it seems like he only ends up on the DL once per season. Not too bad.

The Twins have interest in free-agent pitchers Yusei Kikuchi, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen, La Velle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune reports. They’re unlikely to “make a serious bid” for Kikuchi, though, Neal writes. As for the two relievers, the Twins are more interested in Allen than Miller, whose injury issues have led to some concern from Minnesota, per Neal. Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey was in the Indians’ front office in 2016 when Allen and Miller formed one of the most dominant late-game tandems in baseball. Now, both Allen and Miller are coming off underwhelming seasons in Cleveland.

I wonder if Allen and Miller have anything left in the tank?

I'd actually be willing to take a look at them
So I guess I'm a "hoper" too.
But damn, Miller was awesome for awhile

Charlie Morton is off the table....he signed with some other team.

He was dominant last year.. Astros are another team that doesn't make too many mistakes but if the Rays are signing him.
