  1. DH forward plan makes sense in 2 ways... 1. Go with Vaughn and he mashes (Yermin can start season if they want to tweak service time) 2. Sign Cruz for 2 years, Trade Vaughn for Burnes/#2, and Eloy becomes DH year 3 when Coespedes is hopefully LF starter and Colas or new FA is RF.
  2. What options on the market pitched more than 142 inning s in 2019? Not many tbh
  3. Depth adds are needed for sure. But the yankees added Kluber and Talilon, so let's not laud them for addressing full season needs either.
  4. I've been outspoken about Bauer at the right price. But people acting like Lynn isn't a huge move are on the spectrum also. My point is that LaStella, Richards and all these fringe guys are not going to change the fact that this team is already awesome
  5. Deflection. Is this team not the best in the central? Are they world series competitors with only the yankees and blue jays as legitimate threats? JR was never spending 60 mil this off-season. And anyone who thinks they are not better is just silly.

    Twins sign Simmons to 1-year/$10.5MM deal

    18 games against the sox at a 350 clip combined with 220ish elsewhere probably puts him right in line for 260ish
  7. The crow to be had here when moncada is another 5+ war player, Vaughn is the real deal and madrigal wins a batting title is going to be so delicious. Should they have signed Bauer...yep. but this idea that one free agent was going to tip the scales from the best team in the division is really getting tiresome. I've never seen a more pessimistic group of fans in my life. Why do you torture yourself?
  8. So getting the 3rd best starting pitcher available, the best closer in MLB and allowing your absolute stud DH prospect actually play is an underwhelming off-season? Okay cool. Glad that this team will be a 95 win embarrassment.

    Twins sign Simmons to 1-year/$10.5MM deal

    Is this a case of another 220 hitter against the league and 350 slap dick menace against the sox? I hope not
  10. I've been here for several years...only posted for the last two. I can't remember a time I laughed harder. All the Rep your way!
  11. Good point about moving onto talking about Cruz again. Similar to Hendriks, Cruz has been perusing this forum post and has decided to stay with the Twins in light of seeing bat shit crazy fans arguing for pages on end...

    No HOF Players Elected in 2021

    His Facebook post. It's very interesting. But he basically calls out the media in a very big way and asks to be taken off the ballot. He brings up some very legit points...but it also seems on par with his polarizing style they disliked in the first place

    No HOF Players Elected in 2021

    Schilling is a really interesting case. His regular season numbers are good, his postseason resume is legendary, and since his retirement he is a total dick in life. The letter he wrote today probably keeps him from ever getting in at this point
  14. Ah. I got you now. Took me a hot second.

    Because he is a troll and we are all dumb enough to fall for it.

    Marcus Semien to the Jays 1YR/18M

    Seriously. Raga, imagine being a twins fan this off-season.
  17. Pretty fair deal for both sides. And a good bump in salary over the #2 best catcher in baseball...

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    so is Bob getting played to get another higher offer? No way any other team in baseball will give him 37-38 a year. I just don't see it.

    haha. oh yeah. the playoffs in the NL is gonna be a bloodbath the next 3 years.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    Why? He goes to another league, will massively underperform and in hindsight everyone will be glad that Sox didn't pay him 38 mil a season. If anything this is best case scenario as the Mets/Dodgers/Padres can all beat the hell out of each other and the Sox can destroy their division. Bauer was a dream. We all wanted him...but just because he was the shiny object. Also...if they went record breaking AAV....that is NOT going to get good return on investment.

    Hey, positivity! Love it. You should really try it sometime. It's nice

    You said Lynn and Keuchel are both due for regression without giving any reason why. Post one positive thing you've said this off-season. One.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Kluber replaces tanaka (I'd rather have tanaka given kluber's injury) and talilon is coming off a 2nd TJ. They are flat ...and according to resident negative Nancy...you regress automatically if you are over 30.. and yankees have many over 30.

    You didn't answer my question. How have the Rays, Twins or Yankees improved this off-season? Heres a fact check...they haven't at all. And you are deflecting.
