  • When Terry Ryan built us up in the first place though it was never about spending money on free agents. It's going to take some time but I definitely trust him a hell of a lot more than I trusted Bill Smith to turn it around. We do have some position player talent down in the minors, the pitching is just atrocious though. We have a middle of the rotation type guy with Gibson and that's pretty much it as far as guys who are even close to making an impact.

    Agreed on the majority of Twins fans though. I can't even go to our message boards anymore.

    • I'm trying to decide who is more ****** in the next few years between the Indians and Twins. The Indians might have the worst system in baseball when it comes to the upper minors (Lindor could be great, but he's at least 3 years away) combined with ****** major league talent, and the Twins just have no pitching anywhere.

        I was simply talking about their ability to be competitive next year.

        That said, with the new stadium and robust ticket sales, they'll have to at least keep their payroll around 90 million.


        As for the Indians or the Twins, the answer is clearly the Indians, because nobody in Cleveland gives a damn about the Indians. They'd move the team, but there's no better options out there.


        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

        • Hiring Terry Francona would be a nice start, however.

            Well absolutely, there's little to no chance we make enough of a splash to be any more relevant next year than we were this year. They'll continue with their strategy of signing bargain bin terrible FA pitchers until they get lucky and strike gold with a few prospects. They have at least shown signs of turning away from their garbage "pitching to contact" pitching philosophy as of late, which at this point I guess is all I can really ask for.

              He's a fine manager, sure, but he can't magically fix things.

              • That's why he said nice start.

                • Fine fine. Maybe one of your teams can magically pull out a 90 win season like the Orioles, whose best pitcher has either been Jason Hammel (who got hurt), Wei Yin-Chen (randomness out of Japan), or Chris Tillman (who was asleep for 3 years).

                      • It appears as if our resident moral standard thinks that all asian people look the same. My world has been turned upside down.

                            No, I had never seen Chen and just assumed he came from the NPB.

                                The movie wasn't for everyone I guess. Alec Baldwin was exceptional.
