Boone's Days as a Twin (Very) Numbered?

Postby d18Mike » Tue Jul 26, 2005 10:44 am

This from Rototimes ...
--------------

Bret Boone's days with the Twins may be numbered if he doesn't pick things up offensively.

''Every day is an evaluation process. We need production,'' general manager Ryan said. ''Bret Boone's no different than a lot of other guys.'' The St. Paul Pioneer Press even suggests that Boone ''could be gone by the time the team returns home from the East Coast trip on Monday.'

He looks washed up to me. Not just because of his offense, but he is also playing very uninspiring defense for a former gold glover. Some of those misplays in the series vs the Tigers were pitiful.

RotoWorld:

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Twins may be interested in Alfonso Soriano.

The Twins reportedly spoke to the Rangers about a potential trade yesterday, and would be willing to part with J.C. Romero, Kyle Lohse and/or Joe Mays.

Yeah, I'd be willing to part with those guys for Soriano, too, but realistically speaking, I think he'll be much more expensive than that. The names Francisco Lirano and/or Scott Baker absolutely have to be mentioned if the Twins want Soriano.

I just traded for Boone in my league too. Oh well, I have Kennedy at 2B and only gave up Romero. Set up guys are 10 cents for 12 on the wire...

I wouldn't part with Scott Baker if I were the Twinkies though. He seems pretty legit and he is probably better than Lohse, Mays and Silva already.

Man, if he gets dropped..It just seems like the guy is an emotional wreck. Hopefully he picks it up, I always enjoyed watching Bret play.

I've never liked Boone. It wouldn't disappoint me to see him released.
