What about Luke Voit? He seems like the kind of reclamation project the Twins like to sign.

He retired.

No he didn't.

Yeah, well, Stephen Vogt retired.

Nonsense.

You really won't know how good the offseason was until after the season has played out.

Grading it before hand is all just conjecture and poppycock.

We have better players in the Minors. The Twins FO went away from OF that can't defend which is the definition of Grossman.

Don't you know that offseason moves grading is conjecture and poppycock since they haven't played any games. Come to think of it, the drafts for MLB, NFL and NBA is conjecture and poppycock since the players haven't played any games at the professional level. And the ranking of teams for odds for the 2024 Super Bowl is conjecture and poppycock since they haven't played any regular season games for the 23-24 season.
I wonder why Vegas would take any bets since rankings at this point is conjecture and poppycock.

Why don't you just go grade your students tests before they take them MDK?

Why does my post bother you?
You make a snarky post to Matts post of grades for offseason deals that illustrates you continued desire to act as the thread police/reviewer.

If someone other than Matt had made the post, you probably wouldn't have posted anything.

Is it really surprising that a baseball writer evaluates offseason moves by different MLB teams and ranks them from good to bad.....Matt posts it and you couldn't let it go by....you had to add your pointless evaluation of his post

I would have replied the same to anyone.

I think offseason grades are meaningless.

and with your last statement....who is policing the thread?

Regarding the “outer boundary” of the infield, where the dirt meets the outfield grass, MLB will be paying attention to dirt in a way it never has before.

The outfield boundary is defined in the rule book as a 95-foot radius drawn from the center of the pitcher’s rubber, and each infielder must have their feet entirely within the boundary (meaning on the dirt).

For the first time, the dirt area of the infield had to be adjusted over the offseason in several Major League parks in order to comply with the letter of the law and ensure uniformity league-wide. The radius will be measured and monitored by LiDAR technology to ensure all parks are in compliance.

Finally, you might be wondering what happens if a pitch and play go off even though a violation of the shift rule has been called by the umpire. The answer is that, as in football when teams can decline a penalty, the offensive team can advise the home-plate umpire to decline the penalty and accept the result of the play.

So if, say, a home run is hit on that pitch, the shift infraction is simply waved off.

You can position an outfielder as a “fifth infielder,” on either side of second base, and you can move a corner outfielder to the other side of the outfield if you want.

Frankie Montas was damaged goods. Lost for most or all of this season.

Mahle was damaged goods too.

The Twins have had busy and good offseasons for that last 4-5 but it hasn't meant jack....you need depth to combat injuries and I think they finally have it (a team capable of competing for a title).

The last 2 offseasons they have been lucky enough to get Correa.
