First I will say AGAIN, Deduno is the best starter on this team. Nolasco might be as good, Hughes certainly isnt, what the Twins really should do, is dump Correia, can a Diamond, Gibson, Gilmartin, Johnson choice be worse than Correia? I highly doubt it...yes there would be uncertainty but you prefer an automatic loss?
I think K Gibson is the most overhyped over rated prospect I am aware of in the Twins system. I kept hearing all these reports, Gibson is ready, when we bring him up..he will stay..etc..
Truthfully, he was terrible and for him to have a chance at the major leagues..something has to change and radically
Wow...you are a real twins fans, you listen to every snippet you can, you come to twinsdaily multiple times a day, slide over to twinsbaseball.com out of desperation....you can never get enough Twins Baseball..then whatever you do, listen TO Hangouts with Seth...and Im sorry I dont know the other guys name, but THEY TALK BASEBALL!! Congrats guys, love your show! Cant wait for the next one!
Recently I complained about GATG and their lack of baseball, so I downloaded their recent podcast. Dont bother, it was wayyy worse than the one I complained about. I wonder what their goal is, comedy? ouch...Cant be baseball, remotely touched on...my advice to you, watch for Seths podcast or any other but GATG unless you for some reason need to listen to senseless drivel....avoid or completely waste your time. I am aware that Bonnes can ban me and you never have the benefit of my opinion again..but
Should the twins pursue Arencibia, catcher non tendered by the Blue Jays?
He would be cheap, he has power or do you like Salty...better?
If we sign Arencibia...then you have a veteran presence...and Pinto plays the most...isnt that what we want?
After my blog complaining bitterly about gatg and their non baseball talk, their last episode was what I want and very enjoyable. I still dont like the drinking references..but it was much improved.
The next Free agent the twins should sign is Mike Pelfrey. His second half last year was very good. Before the FA signings I said Pelfrey should be number one, now here is what I want the Rotation to Look like.....
For those of you waiting with great anticipation about where the best beer in the Cities is or what the social behavior of Bonnes and Gleeman is going to be, look no further just download the GATG episodes. For me, I am sick of them, I have no desire to listen to two drunks give their opinions on night life in twin cities or their drinking habits they are so proud of. Please Twins fans recommend other podcasts that are really filled with Twins content, I wont be going back to the circus named,
I read post after post about the projected rotation for Twins in 2014, many exclude Deduno entirely or at least have him at number 4. Cmon folks, quit listening to the experts, trust your eyes, Deduno has GREAT stuff, don't believe it, ask Gardy...
Any other pitcher who didn't pitch like Deduno, would be praised and hailed as savior of Twins pitching, but because his style is o unorthodox, he is like a fastballing knuckleballer.....we (twins nation) have to rely on other peoples opinions

I believe Joe could play cf, would love to see him there. I would also like to see him take balls at 3b. Thoughts?
First what is good about the Twins?
1 Middle infield Florimon and Dozier....No change needed, Florimon needs to hit more but if he doesnt his defense warrants his inclusion
2 3b- Plouffe didnt have great numbers but I think his hitting is passable...we dont have to make a change here...I would like to see Mauer trained to play 3rd...also Mauer in outfield....would be great, can he play center? I wouldnt bet against him..he certainly can be a lead off hitter
ready -1b, of, or SS
Choice of 2aa prospect
and A Prospect
What do you think? One thing I wouldnt do is take pitching unless there was a guy that blew me away...(twins have invested heavily in pitching in drafts and trades, now build the rest of the team
Not only was he bad in start 2, he wasnt that good in start one
Maybe he will be ok one day, but dont hold your breath
