The Minnesota Twins’ brain trust of Derek Falvey and Thad Levine has been at the helm for nearly five years. What’s their batting average in that span?
The Milwaukee Brewers’ FanSided website, Reviewing the Brew, recently took a look at the Brewers’ president of baseball operation David Stearns’ batting average as a GM, breaking down his success in his job. The Detroit Tigers’ FanSided website followed the same formula for Al Avila. I think it’s time for us to do the same for the Falvine Duo of the Minnesota Twins.
Each of other teams has one person who is primarily in charge of the personnel moves for their team, but it’s a little different in Minnesota. Derek Falvey and Thad Levine work together on almost everything, so we give them a batting average.
We’ll use the same formula the previous articles have, looking at each free agent signing, trade, and waiver claims and determining if each move was a hit, an out (a miss), or a walk (a draw). If it’s a draw, just like a real walk, it doesn’t count for or against Falvine’s GM batting average.
This will be an interesting process, and I think it might be even higher than I think it is. We’ll start this off with Waiver Claims, as we need to get through those first before we head to trades and then free agent signings where a good chunk of their batting average will be decided. Let’s get into it.
