Needs to be the Front office on pitching.

If not, will be a long last 3 months of the season.

You know it. I know it. The problem is that Falvine refuses to spend for anything more than stop gaps, while their stable of future Cy Young award winners work there way through the system.

This is good news

No

It’s great news



Starting in 2023, the schedule will feature fewer divisional games, and every team will play at least one series against every other opponent, including in the other league. The exact format is still being determined

Arráez went to the DR to stay and train with Nelson Cruz for a month, putting himself through Cruz's rigorous offseason regimen.

Says he lost 11 pounds and his body feels great.

This pitching staff is going to be horrible. It's a team with no aces and no great RP options either. Ryan, Bundy, and Ober are 3-4-5 SP's. Rogers and Alcala are ok, but there's no one else. This team needs two top SP's and two stud bullpen arms to even compete. Good luck.

They do have some young arms...but some of these youngsters are getting old. Balazovic (23), Woods-Richardson (21), Duran (24), Winder (25), Strotman (25), Canterino (24). For some of them the time is now.

I'm tempted to trade Donaldson, Polanco, Sano, Kepler and let all of the kids play. 2022...just like '82.

OR

They can deal 3-4 prospects and Arraez for two stud SP's (Montas, Mahle), sign the best bullpen arms they can find, sign Pineda, get a SS (or play Lewis), hope Kirilloff and Miranda are ready...I wonder what the plan is?

Minaya resigns with the Twins. I guess the bullpen is set.

Some are believing because of this they'll throw most of them out there, and IL them when they need a break. Alleged Trial by Fire.

And if it goes bad, then you can bet they'll trade the EXPENSIVE guys off.

Jimmy's mad about the agreement. He voted for it most likely because they'll get kickbacks on the big spenders. Twins are tightening the belt.

Spent all that on Donaldson, then clam up.

Guess they figure they need one big contract to use as a reason they can't spend. It's the Twins way.

The Twins have traded Mitch Garver to the Texas Rangers in exchange for shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa.

The Twins didn't trust Garver as a catcher anymore. Looks like a decent move. IKF played in 158 games for the Rangers last season and stole 20 bases. Supposedly a really good defensive SS. Jeffers better stay healthy.

Ronny Henriquez is a 5'10" fireballer.

Jeffers and Rortvedt

and nothing behind them to catch

SMH. Bad trade.

Garver could play first and DH

Trade effing boat anchor Sano

But again, no one wants him cuz he's a strikeout turd.

NL DH material.

I don't have a problem with the trade. I like Garver's bat, but he is a weak defensive catcher. He can play 1B and DH, but so can a lot of guys on the 40 man roster. Garver also has had some durability issues up here.

Kiner-Falefa is an elite defensive SS just entering his prime. There aren't any in house options there. Lewis hasn't played since 2019. Martin doesn't project to play SS in the majors.

Ronny Henriquez adds another high velo strike out pitcher from outside the organization, since we never seem to draft those in the first place.

Strange trade for Texas. They traded for Jonah Heim last year and also have Jose Trevino there. And then they have Sam Huff waiting in AAA. They have guys like Nate Lowe and Willie Calhoun to play first and DH. Seems like they should have dealt Kiner-Falefa for pitching since they just signed Martin Perez as their #3 starter.

Twins will need another backstop with just Rortvedt and Jeffers rostered. They must like Jeffers a lot. I wonder is Astudillo is coming back?

The vibe seems to be that Astudillo will be moving on. Even if he were to stay the Twins don't trust him at catcher.

I'd like to see the Twins bring in somebody to compete with Rordvedt to be the backup. He is great behind the plate, but his bat is a complete liability.
