Continued: Souhan: A request to the Twins — show us something

You, Twins front office: Don’t be afraid to bust your budget to prove that you’re trying to win. It’s the best marketing move your franchise could make.

You, Twins prospects: Hurry up. Your presence is required.

You, Twins fans: I know you’re sick of the losing, but thinking that current losing is linked to perpetual losing is to ignore Twins history. They were lousy in the early ’80s while grooming the players who won two World Series. They were lousy in the late ’90s while developing the players who would dominate the American League Central for a decade. Thinking that their prospects are overrated because their current team is woeful is a non sequitur.

Buxton, Sano, Alex Meyer and a slew of other prospects are the real deal, even if the Twins’ bridge to the future features more potholes than Washington Avenue.
