Suzuki is really batting 2nd?

by tobi0040 on 03-31-2014 at 12:09 PM
Why on earth is Suzuki batting second? Last year his OBP was .290, career .309. This literally makes no sense at all.If Mauer plays under Gardy for 15 years, it would be interesting to see how many more RBI's he would have at the end of his carreer with a guy that gets on base in front of him. Casilla, Suzuki, etc.http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/boxsco...cago-white-sox

Didi Gregorius?

Apparently the D-Backs are interested in moving Didi Gregorius and have discussed a deal with the Pirates.

This would certainly be worth a call. He is a slick fielding 24 year old. He may never hit a ton, but he has a respectable .250 average, .329 OBP, .693 OPS in 380 MLB at bats as a 23 year old (7 HR). His numbers in the minors were between .700 and .750 OPS.

I would not give up Buxton, Sano, Meyer, or Kohl. But he would be an upgrade at SS and he would fit in

Is Gibson going to be our fifth starter?

According to Rhett Bollinger, Gibson is the only one in the running for the 5th starter that will have another start.

Could he actually win the job and break camp with the team? Gibson as the 5th starter and Deduno in the bullpen would be ideal for me. I will never fault the Twins for breaking camp with the best possible team.


Team Direction, Payroll, Rebuilding, Target Field, and Discontent

by tobi0040 on 03-13-2014 at 12:57 PM
For years, the Twins were a money ball team that had a very good track record. Payroll fluctuated in the $50-60M range, yet the team made the playoffs in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, and 2010. That was about the ceiling, as the team made the second round just once in the six appearances. The villain that kept this team from advancing was always the metrodome. If the Twins had a stadium, payroll could go up and we could compete and make a serious run. Or so the through process went.

How long will Mauer stay at 1B

by tobi0040 on 03-07-2014 at 08:37 AM
When I first heard that Mauer was moved to 1st, I was thrilled. Then I started to wonder, why first base?

We have Arcia and Willingham in the corners. Mauer seems to be a better athlete and certainly has a better arm than both.

Sano is at 3B and has been described as a project there. I can't imagine him being a better athlete than Mauer, even at 30. I hear Sano has a good arm, but I am giving Mauer the nod there as well.

I can see Mauer playing 1B when
