We kept our focus on the Twins. Here are our topics!
-For discussion: Which shower beer goes best with your shower Reuben?
-The bullpen: Such as it is.
-The rotation: it's not bad!
-The lineup: Also not bad (Do the All Star managers still get to pick players?)
-Wait, are we actually a little optimistic about the Twins!?
Hey, gang, it's been awhile since we rapped at you. Spring is soon approaching and things are... looking cautiously optimistic for Minnesota sports teams?
A lot has happened in a short time. In this (half) episode, we delve deep into the storied history of 2022. First we take a quick look at the CBA agreement and then go through a second by second recap of that fateful mid-March weekend (as well as the other recent signings).
We'll have Part II out before long (featuring a look at the Wild), but we wanted to get this out before the hot stove overtakes our takes. Enjoy!
First, we have a quick Fantasy Update* (thanks again to @velcrojared for the theme). Please let us know everyone's names (and smash that like button) because we're very confused.
Then, we forced ourselves to move onto the Twins. We take a quick look at season, have a brief overview of offseason goals, discuss next year's rotation (including some discussion of a weird pitching strategy of nibbish and DK's (hmm, maybe we'll talk about that more someday)), and then go over some hard truths about position players.
Thankfully, we discovered it's a lot more fun to talk about fun teams, so we go over our predictions (and hopes) for the playoffs. To give you an idea of how much credence you should give us, our first prediction is very wrong!
*I should note that ben's bens were actually tied for 1st place in the baseball league. The league page has him noted as both tied for 1st or in 2nd. However, you're first in our book, ben. Congratulations to the co-champions (and sorry for the omission)!
