What to make of Twins starting pitchers after they add another in Mookie Betts trade

But the Twins did what good teams do, and that's adding starting-pitching depth ad infinitum. The Twins have had an inarguably good offseason, with much of that good stemming from landing perennial MVP candidate Josh Donaldson to man the hot corner for the next half decade. Donaldson's long been a thorn in the White Sox side - a career .

Are Twins shedding 'cheap' label, becoming attractive in free agency?

When it comes to perceptions about the Twins and how they operate in free agency, there are two narratives that sometimes compete with each other and sometime seem intertwined. First, there is the idea that the Twins won't spend big. Second, there is the idea that big-time free agents don't want to sign here because they prefer larger markets and/or warmer year-round climates. There is merit to both notions, frankly. Exactly a year ago, as luck would have it, I wrote extensively about the Twins ...

Twins betting on age-defying metrics of Josh Donaldson

The Twins' willingness to offer four years and $92 million to Donaldson is a matter of balancing what the big-picture numbers about age and regression are saying vs. what Donaldson might do as he gets older.

Josh Donaldson vs. the Twins: Huge success and a notable dust-up with Glen Perkins

Josh Donaldson has a .395 career batting average, .487 on-base percentage and .852 slugging percentage in 191 career plate appearances against the Twins, with all three representing the highest marks for an opponent (minimum 100 PAs) in Twins history. But how did he arrive at those gaudy numbers – which the Twins are glad he won't be building on now that he's officially signed with them? Here are some highlights and thoughts from Donaldson vs. the Twins in the last decade. *Donaldson's first pla...

Josh Donaldson says decision to sign with Twins over Braves, Nationals came down to money

The Nationals made an offer to free-agent Josh Donaldson this winter but talks didn't progress much deeper than that, the third baseman told NBC Sports Washington's Tim Shovers at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend. "I had a talk with the general manager [Mike Rizzo] and I had a conversation with Davey [Martinez] as well," Donaldson said. "Had a couple conversations with some of the teammates but nothing that was structurally or anything l...

Josh Donaldson joining Twins is best-case scenario for Cubs, Kris Bryant trade market

Donaldson has also been linked to the Rangers, Nationals and Braves - whom he played for last season - this winter, with the Twins being more of a dark horse candidate. He becomes the latest star free agent third basemen to depart from his incumbent team this offseason - Anthony Rendon left the Nationals for the Angels; Mike Moustakas left the Brewers for the Reds. For the Cubs, Donaldson's decision is the best-case scenario.

AP source: Twins, 3B Donaldson agree to $92M, 4-year deal

The Minnesota Twins and 2015 AL MVP Josh Donaldson have agreed to a $92 million, four-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. Donaldson, a three-time All-Star who broke in with Oakland as a catcher in 2010, averaged 37 home runs and 100 RBIs over his three full seasons with the Blue Jays from 2015-17.

Twins, Josh Donaldson have had frequent contract talks

KTSP TV's Darren Wolfson reported earlier today that the Twins and free agent third baseman Josh Donaldson have had “darn near daily dialogue.” Donaldson apparently likes the idea of hitting against AL Central pitching as opposed to that in the NL East, where he spent last season with the Braves. Last week, we learned that Donaldson has multiple four-year contract offers on the table. The Twins are among those having made the offer, along with the Braves and Nationals.

MLB Rumors: The Nationals are one of three teams to reportedly offer Josh Donaldson a $100 million contract

The third base free-agent market is all but dried up, leaving 34-year-old slugger Josh Donaldson as the last big name on the board. After a season in which he hit 37 home runs and drove in 94 runs for the Braves, Donaldson was widely considered the second-best option at third base this winter behind Anthony Rendon. When it was reported that Donaldson could end up with a four-year deal, it was difficult to determine what team would be willing to go that far for a player past his prime.

Josh Donaldson has multiple four-year offers on the table

David O'Brien of The Athletic reports the Braves have made a four-year offer to third baseman Josh Donaldson. If that's accurate, it would not seem that Donaldson has three four-year offers on the table, with the Nationals and Twins also reportedly having done so. Last year Atlanta signed Donaldson to what was, essentially, a high-priced make-good deal, agreeing to a one-year, $23 million pact.

Trying to make out Nationals’ lineup shows massive hole remaining

And, someone else -- whomever from the remaining free agent third basemen. Washington's desperation for Donaldson becomes more apparent when trying to decipher a lineup without him.
