He'll be making $22M a year over the last 3 seasons even. He'll be almost 40 by then.Rats. Missed out on Bryce Harper. 13 years, 330 million. While it'd sure be exciting to have the Twins be players for a guy like this, they years/money is absolutely ridiculous. Those long-term deals almost always end poorly. Albert Pujols can barely get to first base at this point, and he's still got 3 years left on his deal.
I believe the field has warmers underneath so that helps. The grass is usually pretty green by opening day regardless of the weather. Just a few days with sunshine and temps in the 30's should melt snow pretty fast at this time of year.Berrios just named the opening day starter.
...in just 3 and a half weeks, folks. And what if we get another 7 inches this Saturday/Sunday? And 6 more inches the following Tuesday-Wednesday? Not saying we can't melt all that snow, but...
Last year, it was Santa's finger that was hurt in October, nothing done until February, then he would be back in May which became August.It really does seem as if the Twins consistently have problems with diagnosing and treating injuries. Now, in this case, Sano sustained the injury while playing in the Dominican, and came to camp already injured. But, whatever treatment the Twins adopted clearly did not work as expected.
I seem to remember reading/hearing that one of Falvey and Levine's goals was to revamp the medical side of the operation. seems like they've still got work to do.
On the flip side, this opens up 3rd base for Marwin Gonzalez to be the everyday starter. If he gets off to a good start, what the bleep do the Twins do with Sano when he's healthy? The Twins have to find out if Sano is going to be part of the solution going forward. He has to play. Could wind up being at 1st base if Cron doesn't produce. I can't see Sano taking AB's away from Cruz at DH.
just goes to show you, it's always something.
How do people know this for sure? He underwent a debridement procedure previously. My understanding is in most cases, that takes care of the problem. It didn't in this situation for some reason so he needed another debridement. The stitches were probably put in while he was in the Dominican so that maybe has something to do with it.This is on the Twins' medical staff. They seem to be no better than Dr. Nick.
I agree the medical staff has a history of weird outcomes, but I can't see how this one is on them.How do people know this for sure? He underwent a debridement procedure previously.

Bring back scheduled doubleheaders (not the day-night ones). I know it will never happen because of $$$$$ but it would be fun if they could do it once in awhile. Maybe like each team does 2 scheduled ones. I'd pay extra to see two games.Imagine a home opener on April 18, when the average high temp is 59. In reality--in 2019--there's gonna be a game here two weeks from tomorrow.
