The Rays’ pitcher that isn’t Chris Archer, and now he belongs to the Twins.

Hope you Twins fans were staying bright-eyed and bushy-tailed tonight, as the Twins actually made a big (?) move! Former Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi is now a Twin, for a low, low cost. All they have reportedly given up is Jermaine Palacios.

This is kind of insane.

As much as I love Palacios, this is a HUGE return for a minor league infielder. The Twins have had Jake Odorizzi on their radar for quite awhile. To get him for only Jermaine Palacios?

/slow clap
