It’s MLB Trade Rumors season, and the Twins have begun the process of auctioning of Jose Berrios to two high-bidding National League contenders
With the MLB Trade Rumors winds blowing harder and harder, it’s a reminder that the deadline is controlled and operated by bad teams with big players. While some teams like the Cubs, Nationals, and Yankees are spending this week officially determining whether they will be buyers or sellers, the Minnesota Twins have fully embraced how terrible they are and are waving the white flag like it’s a Homer Hankie.
Hey, at least the Twins can win at something this year, even if it’s being so bad they control a ton of trade chips at the deadline.
One of the most valuable chips the Twins hold is starter Jose Berrios. What began as rumblings that Minnesota might move its ace have become full-throated shouts from the auction podium. Berrios is going to be traded, it’s just a matter of who ends up with the Cy Young candidate when the dust settles.
