The Twins never seem to put an emphasis on pitching. What's the point of scoring all these runs if you're going to make JA Happ a starting pitcher that can't stop anyone. So many past ther prime leftovers when it comes to pitching.

You mean besides trading for Odorizzi and Maeda and signing Pineda twice? All in the last three years?

They messed up this year....but it's not like they've done nothing. This FO took a pretty much last place staff, and had them in the top 10 in 2019 and 2020. Didn't work this year, for a lot of reasons. But not lack of effort.

Pineda was another teams leftovers and he spent a year injured before he could pitch for Minnesota. The Twins were Oridozzi's 3 team in 6 years and he was traded for cheap. I'll give you Maeda. He's pitched pretty well.

They literally went from ranked in the upper 20s in ERA in 2017 or 18 to top ten in 2019 and 2020........

It sucks trading berrios but it's nice selling high for once

It doesn't happen all that often...however, it would be nicer if it would happen when they just have a lot of depth and can afford to trade them.

It is crazy how many Olympic medalists are from MN!

Another gold medal this morning - this time from MN wrestler Gable Steveson

One of the most amazing finishes I’ve ever seen in wrestling. Gable’s an absolute stud.

Apparently I read that he just lost all of his confidence on the court in his performance and then the coaches lost enough confidence in him to even put him on the court, so then he became disillusioned as last season wore on to even work towards getting more playing time and wanted a new start somewhere else.

Rumors are that Rosas is trying feverishly hard to come up with a package to land Ben Simmons. 

Not sure how that would even be remotely possible, but obtaining, and then using these larger, expiring contracts fits the narrative. 

As expected, he's taking the same approach here as they took in Houston, trying to think 2 steps ahead when making acquisitions, in the never ending quest to put star players together.

Philadelphia’s asking price is apparently in free fall, as teams know that Simmons doesn’t want to be their, and everyone knows that Philly doesn’t want him. 

But I still don’t know how the Wolves would manage to put together a package that is more enticing than other teams potentially looking at Simmons.
