Left-hander J.A. Happ and the Minnesota Twins are in agreement on a one-year deal, pending physical, sources tell ESPN.

And tomorrow we trade for Chad Kuhl. You heard it here first.



Print those WS tickets NOW!!!

Happ averaged a little over 5 innings/start in 9 NYY starts

So there you go. Bridging the rotation from Odor to the next group with Happ for a year, without killing the budget and extra years on an Odorizzi contract


WWWWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEf'nWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEE



Wrong Yankee....wanted Paxton.

Happ had a 1.05 WHIP. I like this a lot.



LOWERED EXPECTATIONS

#MNTwins get their 4th starter. Could do worse than Happ for sure.

Allegedly

There's some talk about a re-signing of Marwin

Twins do not care about winning the WS. Happ signing is further proof.

Go get CJ Cron while you're at it.

Disappointing and frustrating.

THIS

SOME fans care more about getting to the WS than the ownership does

Nod and wave that pennant, that foam finger, that participation trophy.

Wow.

DRINK THAT KOOL AID

I just don't see any downside to the Happ signing. He's been good in like 5 of the last 6 years (sub-four ERAs). He's left-handed. He's probably the #MNTwins #3 starter. It's a one-year deal. No, it's not exciting, but it's definitely not a "Homer Bailey signing" either.

I guess Happ could be considered a marginal improvement over Stinky in that he can get past the 6th inning with some regularity. Signing a back end bargain to add to a 3 man rotation is fine if you add something at least comparable to Maeda and Berrios for the other slot. We all know that they aren't going to do that, so I hope they let the top arms among our shiny coins compete for that last spot.

No Stinky
No Homer Bailey
No Uber
No Schnauzer

Castro signs 2 year deal with Astros

Tigers have "been in touch" with Marwin. Hinch must need a can banger.

It's probably their version of kicking tires.

The Twins made a Meh move to calm the Sheep.

They did not make a move to make the real fans feel better.

I might. This is gonna be pretty neat:

9:00 a.m. to 9:25 a.m.

“The Sandlot” Table Reading

“You’re killing me, Smalls!” Start your Virtual TwinsFest off on a hilarious foot with a trip to “The Sandlot” like never before. Twins players and staff, past and present, will bring a scene from this classic baseball movie to life during a table reading that features all your favorite characters: “Yeah-Yeah” (Luis Arraez), Timmy and Tommy (Tyler Duffey), “Squints” (Randy Dobnak), “Ham” (Mitch Garver), Smalls (Thad Levine), Benny “The Jet” (Royce Lewis), Bertram (Devin Smeltzer) and Kenny DeNunez (Tommy Watkins). Special guest, and WCCO Radio legend Dave Lee, will play the narrator.


I'm also looking forward to Tim McGraw closing it out with a concert.

I went to a Gardy party
To reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories
And watch the Twins again

When I got to the Gardy party
They all knew his name
No one recognized Ron
He didn't look the same

But it's all right now
He learned his lesson well
You see ya can't wear a uniform
So ya got to please yourself


People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Toby brought a rule book
There was magic in the air
N' over in the corner
Much to Ron's surprise
A pile of dirt laid by a plate
Time to get a rise

But it's all right now
He learned his lesson well
You see ya can't wear a uniform
So ya got to please yourself

Holy shit. Tom Kelly Jr was found dead in his hotel room in Arizona. He was 42 years old.

@JonHeyman
Twins upgraded the dollars in their 1-year offer to Nelson Cruz. But multiple NL teams are showing interest and it’s not surprising he’s waiting to see if a universal DH is adopted.


There you have it. Twins only want a 1-year deal

So true sigh

ESPN

Schoenfield: I'm not counting J.A. Happ as a big move, so I'm still waiting for the Twins do something interesting to keep up with the White Sox -- re-signing Nelson Cruz, in particular. No, he won't continue mashing forever, but he was the only hitter in the lineup who didn't fall off in 2020 from that record-setting team of 2019. They need Cruz or somebody similar (Marcell Ozuna?). You would think a team that has lost 18 playoff games in a row would want to go all-in, but the Twins seemingly have been content to go about 88% in the past couple of years.
