Hope Odorizzi can throw 'em some strikes right from the get go & not so many walks. :happy1: I'd rather see 3-4 solo HR's than 2-3 innings where they score 2-3 runs. :sad: :bonk: Go Twins :cheerleader:

Well this is starting out like crap. Load the bases in the 2nd with no outs and don't score?  :doah:

Was thinkin the same then Dotch. :tut:  :bs: We had some other good chances but they couldn't get it done.  :thumbs: :pouty:  :sad:. This is hard for me to say, kind of like agreein with you know who, but NY just played better this series. Their starters were better & so was their bullpen. Even their defense & especially their bats bats in the clutch went right for them. Still was an awesome season for the Twins  :cheerleader::cool: & if you'd told me in April that they'd take the division with 100 wins I'd probably called you. :crazy:

Yes, this season was more than we hoped for.  The success probably surprised the front office guys too.  We'll see if they can build on it for next year.

Trouble is that while they were building to beat the teams in our division, they weren't built to beat the best teams in baseball.  You have to have some semblance of starting pitching, and they had far too little of that.

But it was a good run.  Hopefully we'll have fewer injuries next year, retain some key guys, find some starting pitching, and make it a little farther next year - and beat 'dem Damn Yankees!

Yankees had a lot of injuries too, more than just about anyone else, but the timing of those injuries played a part in how this series went IMO. They were pretty healthy at the end of the regular season & we had a few key guys go down. :sad:  Not much can be done about that. :pouty: Some starting pitcher depth, another quality lefty in the bull pen, & holding on to most, if not all, of the FA's they signed this season would be a very good start on next year. :cool:

Kepler and Polanco are the only guys locked up to long term deals.  Everyone else (literally) is up for Free Agency, eligible for Arbitration, or not signed.

Twins Salaries and Contracts - Team Future Payrolls

Castro, Cruz, Pineda, Odorizzi, Gibson, Parez, Schoop, and Romo are free agents next year.

Sano, Buxton, Rogers, Adrianza, May, Torreyes, and Berrios are arbitration eligible.

Yeah, you probably don't want to keep all of those guys, but that is also a lot of players to give raises to.

I see where they have an option on Cruz & Perez for next season & that would be a great place to start. Your right though, that's a lot of guys to give raises to & I don't think they will be able to. Falvey & Levine are going to have a busy off season, that's for sure. The way the game has went, I see the price of good relievers going up quite a bit  & I'm hopin we can get a couple of the young guys who came up at the end to work out there. I heard Smoltz say towards the end of the game that he thought that Graterol would be better suited as a starter for next year.  :scratch: Lots of questions to be answered & interesting to see how much $ the Pohlads are willing to spend to try to win. :confused:

Yeah, you probably don't want to keep all of those guys, but that is also a lot of players to give raises to.

My guess is Castro, Schoop, Romo, are not coming back.
They will probably offer Odorizzi a multi year deal to come back. Both Pineda and Gibson might get offered something around what they were paid this past season to return on short term deals.

Sano, Buxton, Rogers, May, and Berrios will all be back next year on arbitration or new deals like Kepler & Polanco did this past spring. Adrianza will depend on price.

What about Cron?

I'd love to see Romo back but I don't think they'll want to pay him what he can get elswhere. Liked Schoop too as he had some big games for 'em but Arraez will most likely take that job. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cron back as they picked him up on waivers so his deal wasn't a lot of $. With him being hurt towards the end & not playing a lot I'm not sure :scratch: how many other teams will be interested. Hope so!

I think Sano's future is at 1st base if he plays a position or DH.  I am hopeful they will fix Cron's thumb.

Between Sano, Cron, and Cruz... do you think they keep all 3?  I hope so.

They say Cruz had a positive influence on Sano.  I'd like to see Sano's improvement cemented with one more year under Cruz's wing.  If they don't resign Cruz, I'd be afraid Sano would lapse back into old habits.

Seen (MLB) that too, article said they don't have to make it official until after the WS though. A bargain too, only $12 mil, they thought he probably would've got more & a longer deal as a FA.   :happy1: :cool:

Yday's game showed that it's not only the Twins pitchers who have trouble getting the Yankee hitters out. :tut: :sad: Hoping Verlander gets it right today.

Yup, when I looked at the score & saw they were up 5-0 over the Astros so I just kept scrolling on by. Couldn't care less about the Fankees. 3rd highest payroll overall in the majors but the highest payroll of any team in the playoffs. And their fans? Well, if you can't say anything nice about someone... :rotflmao:
