Monday Morning Minnesota: Joe and Jake, but not that Jake (except that Jake is also mentioned too)

I’m good at concise titles.

The newest of Twins, Jake Odorizzi, had a down year last year, but fangraphs thinks he’s just an adjustment away from returning to form. It is always nice when pitchers you acquire are good at pitching, I hear. Phil Miller of the strib talked with Joe Mauer about his plans after this year when his current contract is up and also I am crying. The Sports Daily looks at some dark horse MVP candidates for the upcoming season. The Twin on the list is probably...

MLB.com ranked Palacios the 27th best prospect in the Twins system. The deal looks even better when you...

Justice: Odorizzi gets Twins closer to contending

As first steps go, the Twins could hardly have done better than right-hander Jake Odorizzi. Now what? Isn't that the bottom line? If this is the only upgrade to the Minnesota rotation, it may not be enough.

Outside of that one thing, I’m successful and well-balanced. That said, the first team that I thought to pair with the Twins was the...
