2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)HI John. That's for doing this chat! It's frustrating as a Twins fan that the team never makes a move to get better. All we ever hear from the front office is that "they're trying hard, but other teams ask for too much in return". Yet, guys we could use, like Rafael Betancourt, Felipe Lopez, and Cla Meredith get dealt for almost nothing. Are the fans being lied to? Why are the Twins never able to get in on deals like those?
(Kirby from Minnesota)
The Twins strongly believe in their player development system and prefer a homegrown team. It's worked for them in the fact they've been highly competitive throughout the decade. However, I think they've cost themselves a shot at making at least World Series appearance by not making a big in-season move. (John Perrotto)
