The Minnesota Twins season has thirteen games to go, meaning that with most of the season now in the rearview mirror, we can better judge how each of the Twins’ offseason moves actually went.
I was extremely optimistic going into the season, as were most other Twins fans. Despite adding only two big-name free agents, the team looked poised to contend for a third consecutive division title and possibly go even further.
As we all know now, that didn’t happen. The Twins’ front office was arrogant, believing that they could work the same magic they did with Matt Wisler and didn’t need to bring back Tyler Clippard, Sergio Romo, or Zack Littell (they wanted Trevor May back, he chose to go elsewhere).
