While a majority of the Minnesota Twins moves and decisions at the trade deadline are to be decided, the Twins had some hits and misses throughout.
The Minnesota Twins had an eventful run-up to last month’s MLB trade deadline. For the first time in nearly a decade, the Twins were legitimate contenders at the annual player swap and with this year being the first time there has been one universal deadline to make deals, anticipation was high for a big move that would put the Twins over the top.
While the big move didn’t happen, the Twins still made some interesting decisions leading up to the deadline. Some of those moves built even more pent up frustration from the negative side of the fan base, while others simply have a concern as the Twins’ giant lead in the American League Central evaporated in the month of August.
One month after the deals and decisions were made, there’s still plenty of times to get things sorted out. However, in the world of instant analysis, it’s hard not to see how each move has impacted the Twins and how they (and the decisions that didn’t result in a move) could impact their season moving forward.
