5 Thoughts: The Twins hand out a couple of extensions



The Twins signed Jorge Polanco to a contract extension. Do we like the signing? What are the other comparable deals around the league?

They also agreed that Max Kepler gets his extension. Do we like THAT deal? And are there other deals in the MLB that we think mirror his?

Does this mean they should go get your big-name free agents? Would you go get closer Craig Kimbrel? What changes about the winter plan now that these two guys are in the fold for the long haul.

Any other Twins contract extensions on the horizon? Which players would you approach with this type of deal if you’re Minnesota?

Are these contracts the new Moneyball? The next market inefficiency?

Derek Wetmore, Phil Mackey and Ramie Makhlouf discuss on this week’s Emergency Edition of ‘5 thoughts’
