The Twins are apparently sick and tired of being called cheap (which has happened a lot over the past few weeks…). Today they made headlines twice. Yup, the Twins at the top of news feeds TWICE in one day. Believe it.

First, very early, reports dropped that our very own Minnesota Twins are the “secret team” involved in contract discussions with the two biggest free agents on the market this offseason.

Is there ANY chance the Twins sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado??? Here is the answer from an ESPN piece reacting to an ESPN+ story on this subject. The original story was written by MLB Insider, Buster Olney.

Olney is hearing the Astros, Giants and Braves being mentioned as potential suitors for Harper; the Yankees and Padres as possible contenders for Machado; and the Rangers, Twins and Cubs as three teams that could sign either player.

Immediately, the story continues to say that Olney doesn’t believe any of these teams will really get deeply into discussions unless the players’ demanded terms start to waver.

Before you jump for joy, just remember that this new front office has been “involved” with big time free agents before. Look no further than last offseason when Shohei Ohtani was coming to the USA to change the game of baseball… The Twins were one of the finalists supposedly in on the Japenese pitcher/slugger.

I’m not getting excited and neither should you. This is a VERY convenient time to be reportedly in on the Harper and Machado sweepstakes. I’ll believe it when I see Falvine flying to pick him up in the Pohlad’s private jet.

Breaking the Bank on New Uniforms

Going out and grabbing Harper and/or Machado isn’t the only thing Jim Pohlad is ready to splurge on. He’s busting out the wallet to get brand new uniforms made for 2019 and beyond. That’s a lot of cash. You have to move a lot around to produce new uniforms. Hopefully we don’t have to sell Target Field…
