Funny how every time there was a runner left on third, it was a Twin.

Source: #SFGiants close to hiring J.P. Martinez as assistant pitching coach. Martinez recently worked for #Twins as assistant pitching coordinator of their minor league system; he supervised pitching operations at team's Alternate Training Site in 2020. @MLB @MLBNetwork

Who is JP Martinez? Did the Giants confuse him with FP Santangelo?

The Twins finally have to decide on Rosario this week. Should be interesting.

If we are going to kick the tires on guys who are going to sign somewhere else, can we at least make them worthwhile players?

I'm hoping the Cards, as some projected, will get Odor and force the Twins to look elsewhere.

Seems like any new pitcher will be via the trade route. Perhaps that clears up some after having to announce what they're doing w/Rosario.

A few weeks ago, our La Velle E. Neal III reported that the Twins and Saints were working on a deal to have St. Paul replace Rochester (N.Y.) as the organization’s Triple-A affiliate — a fairly seismic shakeup for the two biggest baseball entities in the Twin Cities.

While a lot of questions remain — including how to finance the up to $20 million required to become an affiliate and exactly what becoming an affiliated team would mean for the Saints’ brand — we seem to be inching closer to a final decision.

Baseball America, which has been ahead on the reporting on the massive nationwide overhaul of the minor league affiliate system, reported recently that a full list of 120 affiliates for the 30 MLB clubs could be announced this week.

But in between La Velle’s report a few weeks ago and the official announcement sometime in the near future, the Twins-Saints story was advanced in a different way — via a hat tip, literally and figuratively, from Twins manager Rocco Baldelli.

In a video message posted on Twitter on Saturday, Baldelli thanked Twins fans for their support, told them how much the Twins miss them and reminded them that because of Covid-19 the organization had to cancel TwinsFest and the Winter Caravan this season.

The text of the 88 second video was nice. The subtext was far more interesting.

In the video, Baldelli is wearing a vintage St. Paul Saints cap. If that was some sort of mistake, I’m sure Baldelli wouldn’t have tweeted it out — nor would the Twins’ official Twitter account have retweeted it just minutes after he sent it.

So we are left with the possibility that it’s just a massive coincidence and Rocco just likes vintage caps … or that the Twins-Saints affiliation is close enough to being a done deal that Baldelli is already wearing the merchandise of the new Class AAA team.

“I’m really excited to see what the Twins have in store and are coming up with right now,” Baldelli says in the video.

Yes, let Stinky walk and go after a frontline pitcher. Either show some balls, brush off the sticker shock and sign Bauer or part with Eddie and or Sano and or the requisite shiny coins and get a top of the rotation guy who can...gasp...pitch 7 strong innings.

Would probably be better than Smeltzer, Thorpe or Dobnak.

Awesome! Rocco already promoting the new AAA team in St. Paul. This is going to be great.

He's into wearing vintage hats.

Had a nice chat w/ #MNTwins reliever Caleb Thielbar. 2 headlines:
1) he credits Tyler Clippard for advice to refine his offseason regimen. He hit the weight room sooner than years past.
2) As an ex-Saint & July CHS Field participant, he loves idea of Twins AAA moving to St. Paul.

The reorganization of Minor League Baseball is expected to be announced as soon as Tuesday, with the Twins reaching deals to have their top affiliates in St. Paul and Wichita, Kan.

I was hoping they could get AA closer. Could you imagine getting AA to Sioux Falls or something like that?

Some in cyber nerd world with Twins Colored glasses believe they should work something out with the Cubs and swap Bryant and Rosario with Bryant as the backup 3rd base option.

And also find a way to deal for Darvish.

No Twins affiliates in the land of Christie Noem.

@MillerStrib
I-35 will serve as Twins’ prospect pipeline, starting in 2021. Top three affiliates will be AAA St. Paul, AA Wichita, and (with a slight detour) high-A Cedar Rapids. Adding Wichita and its brand new stadium is huge coup for Twins

It sounds like the people of Wichita were pretty upset at having to settle for a AA affiliate. They spent a lot of money on a new stadium for the purpose of luring a AAA team.
