It’s finally December. The year is getting colder, but in Major League Baseball, the hot stove is just beginning to heat up. Free agency has already seen a few major splashes, but as per usual, the Minnesota Twins have exercised their typical patience. Fortunately for Twins fans, with December comes the Winter Meetings, a time for an abundance of hope.
At these meetings, MLB teams and agents typically have a lot of discussion over free agency, trades, and other issues in a sunny location. This year in San Diego, the Twins (who are in the midst of a pivotal offseason), need to have a successful Winter Meetings to set the tone for rest of the Winter.
The Minnesota Twins need an active Winter Meetings in order to have a successful offseason.
Last season, there was no Winter Meetings due to the lockout, but this season, teams will have plenty of things to do amidst what expects to be one of the busiest offseasons in recent memory. For the Minnesota Twins, a successful Winter Meetings can be a huge boost for a very apathetic fan base.
What does a successful Winter Meetings look like? Well, no one is expecting the Twins to make three or four splashy signings, but the team can follow a few different paths to make their time in California a success and start the offseason off right.
