I tell ya, not a single tear was shed for Gibson moseying on out of town.

 

They basically replaced him for a pitcher with the same stats. If Homer Bailey is a starting pitcher for the Twins in a Postseason series, they haven’t done enough this offseason.

 

Would love to see them sign Donaldson at 3b and then make a trade for a quality starter.

I'll take a pitcher with the exact same stats that at least shows 1 iota of self confidence over Gibson any day.

(wasn't a fan) :)

well two of are starters are out to start, pineda is out till mid may for the 60 game suspension, and hill is out till june with a injury, surgery in October. yes both baily and hill are cheap, so that hopefully frees up money to sign someone better, or like a Donaldson. still the same beat goes on, we wait till all the good players are gone, and we pick up the scraps, we have done this for years, and nothing has changed. on that note, we did have a great signing last year in cruz, but that again was a chance because of his age which worked out great for the team, and probably was the reason we won 101 games last year.

Now that's an intimidating lineup.

This should be a fun summer.

"Twins win again, 9-8" or "Twins drop another one, final score 10-7".  

 

I think those will be the 2 most common headlines on top of the Sports section this season unless we do something to improve our pitching,

Rosario and prospects for a SP i'm hoping.

 

 

 Interesting note that Donaldson has worn #20 for the majority of his career. He would need to get that from Rosario if he wants it in Minnesota.

 

I like the signing at 3b, good upgrade on defense and some nice power at the plate. Now I would like to see the Twins go get a quality pitcher somehow via trade.

I think there is likely a trade coming at some point.  They seem to have a bit of a back log of position players and an obvious need for pitchers (both starters and in the bullpen).  Something will have to give.  They have a tough lineup in place which should give them a chance to win, hopefully they don't squander it by not finding a top end pitcher and some help in the bullpen.

Well there’s the trade, but was it a good trade?

 

I think Graterol for Maeda is fair given the salary and control of a starting pitcher. Maeda makes just $3.125MM per year through 2023. That's a really, really good pitcher for next to nothing.

 

Short-term gain. I like the mindset to trade a future piece for win-now piece. Still don’t think it’s enough to beat the Yankees but it’s an improvement.

Well today should have been a super exciting day for Twins baseball and fans. This was to be the start of a long season with really really high expectations.

 

I know there are bigger things happening in the world right now so forgive me for my bad attitude. But that doesn't take away the disappointment and frustration I am feeling today.

 

Hope this virus goes away sooner rather than later and lives are spared. I have a feeling its going to be a long ride and things will get worse before they get better. Hopefully something can be salvaged of the baseball season. Maybe shorten the number of games or have lots of double headers?

 

I remember back after 9-11 how awesome it was when baseball resumed again. Really hope we can get that again this season.

I so miss sports.

Was really looking forward to this season.

Household chores and yardwork aren't the same without baseball on in the background.

Maybe they will start airing simulation games using The Show 20.

 

I heard they are airing simulation games using NBA 2K20, with real life announcers.

 

Not sure why anybody would watch that though.

    • I’d say it depends on how fast we want results and what the public will tolerate.  I do think a closure during their most vulnerable time is worth serious consideration.  We close the season for other fish for the same reason.  Now we’re realizing the never ending supply of quality panfish does really have an end.   It’s really going to be up to us to understand and accept the facts about how we affect the fisheries.  Getting this information out there and talking with each other is a big help.  I personally know several people who have changed their view on filling the live well or bucket with the most and biggest panfish they can to self imposed limits.  But I also know several people who are still proud as can be to bring home that pile of upper end fish, and worse yet making several repeat trips and bringing others with to do the same.  It’s hard to tell friends what their doing isn’t helpful.   One group of people can substantially fish down smaller lakes in 1-3 years and they’re fine with that.  On to the next lake.  I literally heard that just yesterday.  The limit was dropped on that particular lake to 5 this spring and that has curbed the number of trips they’ve been taking out there.  To me, it doesn’t get to be any clearer than that.   Minky, your practice sounds like what we need to get that 10% group of takers to adopt.
    • Wanderer, any ideas? Would the reduced limit and one over 9 or 10 inches be enough? Should there be a short season closure in the late winter / early spring?  Only catch and release in May and June. I love catching them, eating a few and releasing the rest.
    • here is a new idea to try:  
    • I would have to say that Wanderer is the biggest turkey so he gets my vote. 😀
    • I was out at a local lake last night and found the gills on beds with a few crappies mixed in.  I was learning the lake and planned on keeping moving and targeting bass but couldn’t resist pulling a few pannies in.  As always it was fun but I didn’t keep any and ran into several beds. They were topping out at a solid 8 inches on the board.   As I moved along I could see someone down the line, I thought maybe he was fishing bass also but he didn’t move until I got within about 75 yards.  When I got to the spot he was fishing there was another set of beds but I couldn’t see a fish on them.  Threw my bait in and didn’t get bit.     I’ve been that guy before but I’ve seen that scenario play out too many times to be OK with it anymore.  I know the panfish get hammered all winter and that’s probably putting the biggest hurt on the population but stripping the beds is something we really need to curb IMO.
    • Yes - absolutely thank you to Borch for running this again!   And thanks to everyone who entered!  Having the contest and getting some encouragement helped me get more back in tune to the spring turkey season than I have been lately.  And learn the lesson (again) to not under estimate what’s available and what can happen for anyone.
    • Yes- a cheap go pro knock off. 
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Thanks once again Borch for doing this. 
    • If I could only keep 5 or 10 sunnies this size (around 7 1/2) for the increased chance to catch & release 10+ inch sunnies it would be worth it!
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Shoot Rick a PM to make arrangements for your prize.     Thanks everyone!  It was a challenging but fun season.
