Report: Twins land Marwin Gonzalez on 2-year, $21M deal


The Minnesota Twins and utility man Marwin Gonzalez agreed to a two-year, $21-million deal on Friday, sources told Jeff Passan of ESPN after Jon Heyman of MLB Network broke the news.

Gonzalez is the latest addition for a Twins team that has already added sluggers Nelson Cruz, C.J. Cron, and Jonathan Schoop this winter to help a young core featuring Miguel Sano, Eddie Rosario, and Byron Buxton.

Minnesota finished a disappointing 78-84 in 2018 after reaching the American League wild-card game in 2017. The Twins’ revamped lineup could now potentially challenge the Cleveland Indians for the AL Central crown.

Gonzalez hit 16 home runs and slashed a modest .247/.324/.409 in 145 games last season for the Houston Astros. However, the 29-year-old Venezuelan hit 23 homers with 90 RBIs and a .907 OPS in 2017.

Young Yankee fan has epic response to Padres signing Machado (video)


Manny Machado cashed in big on Tuesday, agreeing to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the Padres. While many Yankees fans might have been upset to miss out on the free agent, there was one fan who was not crying over the loss. 

In a video captured by SNY, a young Yankee fan went on his rant at Spring Training after learning Machado won’t be in the Bronx next season. You’ve got to admire this kid’s energy over something that isn’t even happening. 

“Good, I don’t want Machado on the Yankees,” the kid. “I don’t want anybody from the AL East. I don’t want [Xander] Bogaerts, I don’t want [Mookie] Betts, I don’t want [Josh] Donaldson. I don’t want any of those guys.”

He even left the baseball realm to compare the possible move to quarterback Tom Brady.

“It’s kind of like taking Tom Brady from the Patriots and adding him to the Dolphins,” he said. “It just doesn’t happen.”

Sign this kid up for New York sports radio. 

No word yet on his opinoins on Bryce Harper becoming a Bronx Bomber.
