  1. Pineda knew about failed test 2 months ago. Did the Twins know about this before the trade deadline and therefore could have traded for a starter, for instance, traded Buxton for Thor?

    1. No. The team isn't allowed to know until the very end. Some officials learned the day of his final start.

      From LEN3:

      The team, however, is the last to know. The Twins were not informed Pineda had failed a test until early Friday evening. So a handful of Twins officials knew Friday that Pineda was making his last start of 2019.

    2. In July I was more envisioning a postseason rotation of Berrios, Odorizzi, and Gibson. Not sure that news of Pineda being suspended would have made me more likely to overpay.
