  2. Does Torii Hunter's Contract Bode Will For Josh Willingham Trade?

    Torii Hunter had 12 or 13 teams chasing after him?!? And signed for two years and $26M? Then how much must Josh Willingham, who hit twice as many home runs as Hunter last year and makes half as much, be worth?

    I thought of this question on Sunday as I was podcasting with Aaron Gleeman. A quick look at the top free agent outfielders made me even more interested. Below are the top five free agent outfielders. Letís go through them as a general manager who is looking for right-handed ...
  3. Episode 68: Live from GleeManor

    The Star-Tribune Twins Blogger Picture from...2003?Aaron and John are at GleeManor being filmed for a documentary and talk about Scott Baker signing with the Cubs, Torii Hunter's post-Twins career and return to the AL Central, poor Mike Redmond, how the local media has and hasn't changed in their decade of blogging, why the Tigers and Blue Jays seem more willing to make big moves than the Twins, and their planned trip to see Hannibal Buress. Here are:

  4. The Twins Binary Hope

    In the latest Gleeman and the Geek podcast, Aaron Gleeman and I argued, as we are apt to do. Among the questions raised was one that stuck with me: what is the goal of baseballís regular season? Certainly, it is to make the playoffs, but beyond that, is there an advantage to posting a high win total?

    The answer to that question influences the path one thinks the Twins should travel this offseason. The AL Central champion had only 88 wins last year, the lowest amount for any division. ...
  5. Gleeman and the Geek: Ep 67: Trade Rumors and Claire Forlani

    Aaron and John talk about trade rumors, last week's aftermath and "the older gentleman" not paying his bar tab, terrible facial hair, local media moves, which starting pitchers Twins fans should dream about, having a Joe Maddon fetish, Claire Forlani and effective advertising, Denard Span versus James Shields, targeting Braves and Rays, and where to hide the dead prostitutes before next week's episode. Here are:

  7. Gathering The Pitching Rumors For The Hot Stove

    This weekend is the unofficial start of the Hot Stove Season, because this weekend the MLB General Managers are having their annual offseason meetings in Indian Wells, California. It's not the more hyped "Winter Meetings" that take place next month, but it's still 30 GMs and their assistants, all in the same place, and rumor-mongering galore. Irresponsible, glorious, rumor-mongering.

    Twins fans have more reason than most to pay attention. Terry Ryan indicated in his TwinsCentric interview ...
  8. The Case For Trading Span

    We're approaching the time when a long-time Twins player is going to be traded away. It will likely be Denard Span.

    In our interview for the 2013 Offseason Handbook, Terry Ryan was careful, but stated the obvious. When talking about Chris Parmelee being a regular, Ryan admitted "We're going to try and fit [Chris Parmelee] in there somewhere, without tipping my hand too far."

    Fitting Parmelee into the lineup as a regular means playing him at first base or in right field. ...
  9. Gleeman and the Geek: Ep 66: Interviewing Terry Ryan

  10. Twins Will Seek Competition For Trevor Plouffe

    In the TwinsCentric interview with Terry Ryan last week, (the 9-page entirety of which you can find in the 2013 Offseason Handbook), we asked about his confidence in Trevor Plouffe.

    John Bonnes: Are you comfortable with [Trevor] Plouffe at third base?

    Terry Ryan: Well, he needs some work too. Defensively, heís a work in progress.

    JB: He hasnít played that much at third base in the minors, right?

    TR: No, he hasnít, but heís and ex-shortstop

  11. Gleeman and the Geek: Ep 65: Warm & Fuzzy WolfHammerl

    The Minnesota Twins add some coaches and drop some players. From Surly Darkness Days, Aaron and John review their beers against thrash metal, break down the changes, wonder what the new coaches mean, debate the relative value of Ron Gardenhire, recap their motorcycle adventure, review the players who have been droppped, collect on old debts, speculate on might fill the 40-man roster spots, wonder if Scott Baker will re-sign and tease the next podcast including an interview with Terry Ryan. Here ...
  12. If Twins Will Trade Justin Morneau, There's A Way Toward Contention

    According to the Washington Post, the only legitimately good first baseman on the free agent market, Adam LaRoche, is in talks to re-sign with the Nationals. In the 2013 Offseason Handbook, I think the next best option we found was Carlos Lee, who slugged just .365 (and is 36 years old.) Whatís more, there arenít a lot of good options on the free agent market to move to first base. For instance, Kevin Youkilis is available at third base, but if he can play third base (and it looks like he can) heíll ...

  13. GATG Ep. 64 Postmortem: Geek On Wheels



    John show of his motorcycle minutes after the podcast - and moments before he realizes he's killed the battery, which will undoubtedly be talked about at length in Episode 65.
  14. Twins Purge Matt Capps And Seven Others From 40-Man Roster

    The Twins cleared eight players from their 40-man roster yesterday in moves that affected suspects, prospects and Matt Capps. Because there were actually forty-three players on the 40-man roster, the moves left five spots open which will be filled throughout the offseason by free agents and other new players as well as Twins prospects that the organization wants to protect.

    Of the eight, the biggest name was former closer Capps, who was acquired by the Twins by trade in 2012 and has ...
