So I figured I’d give it a shot to answer them. Not a ‘view from the other side’ but a Twins view from this side. I should ask what Twins fans feel about the Jose Berrios trade. After a couple of poor starts, he’s done a very nice job for us. Twins fans were thrilled with the trade. In a poll at Twinkie Town (they really should get a better name): 45% graded it an A 31%...

It got late, early, this season, but for next year, it’s getting earlier, earlier too.

Photo by Stephen Pond/ During the dog days of a lost season, Twins fans have been forced to find their own angles regarding our favorite baseball team. Even though, to paraphrase Yogi, it got late, early this year…there have still been opportunities for conversations regarding trades that were made, and that weren’t, and players that seem to be figuring it out, as well as those who don’t seem to be.
