Game 913 | May 14, 2019 | Derek Falvey, Thad Levine, Cory Provus
The Twins baseball leaders agreed that the long-term plan for winning teams had to come from building a strong minor league feeder system rather than free agency. Falvey said the Twins' farm system was currently ranked 5th or 6th among all teams. Levine said the team had offered long-term deals to a number of young players and that they were thrilled that Jorge Polanco and Max Kepler had accepted. Falvey said that some form of a salary cap might be part of the next round of negotiations on a Collective Bargaining Agreement with players. Cory Provus, the radio voice of the Twins, moderated the discussion.

The Twins top baseball executives said they were concerned about the team’s slow start but quoted Billy Beane as saying, “In April and May you evaluate your team. In June and July you make adjustments and in August and September you find out how you did.” In their fourth year as leaders, their team finished last in the A.L. Central with a 73-89 record.
