Twins ?

Recommended Posts

The Twins had a better year then I thought they would. Still sucks to lose though, especially to the Yanks. I hope they can find some more pitching and come back strong next year.

First thing on the list:  Figure out what to do with Molly

Next:  Thank Colon for his services but it is time for Big Sexy to ride off into the sunset

Do the same for Hughes, Perkins, Santiago, and Grossman

Give Granite the 4th outfield spot and tell Vargas and Park that the DH spot is open for competition. 

Sign a pitcher to back up Berrios and Santana in the rotation and give Berrios the opening day start (time to see if he can take the next step and be an ace).  If you keep Gibby, make him the 4th starter and bring up one of the kids for the 5th spot.  If not, put Meija in and repeat.

Upgrade the bullpen.  Above all else this needs to priority #1

Tell Sano to figure out how to stay healthy and fit.  Buxton needs to take the next step, Rosario needs to prove that this year wasn't a fluke

Need to figure out what to do with Polanco and Dozier with Gordon nearly ready.  

Will this be it for Joe after this season?

They got all they could out of that team and got 85 wins to show for it.  Now they need to start thinking how they can catch Cleveland. 

Big Offseason ahead

Qualifying for a one-game playoff is a joke.  Win your division or go home.

I'm for the top 8 from the NL and AL (top 2 from each division plus the next best 2 in each league). Do a best of 3 in the first round followed by either a best of 5 or 7.

I have a LEAGUE CHAMPS t-shirt for you next spring at the Hogg.  You wear a men's medium, right?  Or was it a small?

No MLB thread and it kinda fits here......Gardy just hired as manager by DET.

Should be easy to beat DET come playoff time if we run into them.

Next:  Thank Colon for his services but it is time for Big Sexy to ride off into the sunset Went off to Texas

Do the same for Hughes, Perkins, Santiago, and Grossman Perk called it a career, Santiago went to White Sox.  Hughes is going to give it a go while Grossman is the new 4th outfielder

Give Granite the 4th outfield spot and tell Vargas and Park that the DH spot is open for competition. Park went back to South Korea, Twins brought in Morrison for DH spot. Vargas might not make the team.

Sign a pitcher to back up Berrios and Santana in the rotation and give Berrios the opening day start (time to see if he can take the next step and be an ace).  If you keep Gibby, make him the 4th starter and bring up one of the kids for the 5th spot.  If not, put Meija in and repeat. Struck out on Yu (but could be a blessing), got Jake Odorizzi from the Rays for nothing. Just got Lynn on a 1 year deal Santana injury will be a concern but he gets healthy.  Berrios-Santana-Odorizzi-Lynn-Gibson rotation is a massive upgrade

Upgrade the bullpen.  Above all else this needs to priority #1 Boosted the Bullpen, but by how much? 

Tell Sano to figure out how to stay healthy and fit.  Buxton needs to take the next step, Rosario needs to prove that this year wasn't a fluke Major concerns with Sano,  I think the other two will be fine

Need to figure out what to do with Polanco and Dozier with Gordon nearly ready.  Could this be the last season with Dozier?

Will this be it for Joe after this season? Will be a big talking point this season

They got all they could out of that team and got 85 wins to show for it.  Now they need to start thinking how they can catch Cleveland.

They address their two biggest issues in the offseason quite well

Should look at a 90 win team this year

I’d be shocked if they win 90 with that starting staff

Well there now there is one gaping hole in the lineup

Polanco gets banned for 80 games for PEDs

Of course with Sano's ruling on his suspension lurking the Twins could be without their left side of the infield for a good chunk of the season
