Cruz is a beast, pure hitter.

The team announced in a press release that Cruz signed a one-year contract with a club option for 2020. greenies were the best thing happen to baseball.

Let’s see what the Indians final roster is before we judge. 1:01; See All. 2:46; Cruz bringing leadership to Twins.

A lot would have to go wrong for this to be a 100 loss team.

Who would you rather watch?

I’m not getting the Logan Morrison connection. These posters won’t listen to science and logic. Some defensive statistics Copyright © Baseball Info Solutions, 2010-2020. A look at the injuries for Nelson Cruz, and the financial implications. It’s a meaningless game that has no consequences in real life, and thus nobody cares! Last year was the everything went wrong year, this one looks quite promising. Don’t sleep on schoop either.

After crushing 41 homers in his first year with the Twins, Cruz is hitting .320/.406/.634 in 2020 with 16 long balls and 32 RBIs in 49 games. The guy was caught cheating, if you’re still a fan cool, but no way can you make him out to be one of the best guys in baseball.

He could have provided no production for them.

People were probably saying the same thing about him back then.

The last time the Twins had this kind of raw power potential was 2010 with Jim Thome, Justin Morneau, Jason Kubel and even Delmon Young.

Slevin, they didn’t ask for the money back…so why are you?

On paper at least.

in a weak division with offense and starting pitching that isn’t great but ok with some guys ready to make the jump, I , and I’m sure plenty other, find your comment pretty terrible. Sometimes people who cheat have it catch up with them.

I hope he continues slaying. You’re probably mixing up the acquisition type with Cave who was DFA’d before the season started and a trade was worked out. I’m glad it has the option year. Dozier, forsythe, grossman, drake… you get my point. We’re rebuilding right now, so duh of course he’ll hit some home runs off of us. I hope my team doesn’t sign Grandal because I don’t want to root for a cheater.

therealryan, I agree…it seems that people are out for blood.
   vs. HOU 1 AB, 0 H, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 0 SB, Rookie Status: He stole money from Twins players. Unfortunately I’m still now 3-22 on predictions. Sounds like another Logan Morrison to me.

What if it was found out that Adam Kennedy was using PEDs in 2002?

Only a $300K buyout. Beyond that, the fact that Cruz was added on a one-year guarantee means that the Twins still don’t have a single guaranteed contract on the books for the 2020 season, leaving them with more flexibility than any team in the Majors from a long-term vantage point. The comment made by the other poster was insinuating PEDs. Hes one of the biggest cheaters in sports!

And Cruz has a cool nickname — “Boomstick.” No current Twin can boast of such a moniker. If Nelson Cruz gets his way, the Boomstick will stay with the Minnesota Twins for a while longer.

Machado and Harper will sign for an obscene amount of money and it might end up being a good signing. Nothing has changed.

Given the uncertainty surrounding Sano, Byron Buxton and fellow free-agent signing Jonathan Schoop, adding a player with Cruz’s perennial stability is all the more important for the Twins. Hilarytrump, what is the point of your reply. Like Tom Brady, I think he out works everyone else. For all we know everyone playing for the Twins in 2002 was using too. If it is, why don’t you put on the big boy shoes, take off the rubber pants, and just come out and say whatever is on that troubled mind of yours.

He was part of the Lynn trade. How about Assange, Snowden, every foreign leader the US wants to take out?

I think the cash could have been better spent.

That pairing of Mauer and Morrison, then, will be swapped out for a more powerful combo of Cruz and C.J. Like you said, 283 HRS in his 30’s is really good.

Prospects. PEDS work. at DH was awful last year.

Teams will sign anyone who can help them win. To simply state that trading Kluber levels the playing field on the AL Central is absolutely ridiculous. Yeah, TB may be a stretch, but the Twins have what?

Yes, injuries can affect a team, Yankees are one injury to a pitcher to have a middle pitching staff.

I think you were an underrated player.

I’m curious to see if a new pitching coach will make any difference as it seemed in the past few years the other teams too often seemed to know what the Twins pitchers were going to throw, especially Berrios (who has wicked movement on his pitches).

Cruz This isn’t black and white. Also, as a Twins fan I can tell you that Mejia is not on the roster bubble, he’ll either be our 5th starter or a multi-inning reliever.

TODAY: The Twins have officially announced Cruz’s signing. Cron I would expect a slightly above .500 season. One of the most pitcher friendly parks in the league.

He hasn’t been suspected of it since 2013, and even if he was, something would have came up by now.

The Twins have gotten better if you consider who is coming back from injury and who they replaced.

That said, to lose 90 all that has to happen is for most of the guys to have the same kind of year this year as they had last year and the other teams in the AL Central to be marginally better.
