    Pelfrey, definitely.

    Correia and Willingham? Not so much. Both were needed to fill out some pretty awful rosters... I still don't think the Correia signing was a bad one, the problem is that it...

    And I just explained why it doesn't. It's a trailing indicator, not a leading indicator. Just as the unemployment figures tell you too late that a recession is happening. Just as the timer going...

    Florimon, Fuld, Presley (Alex, not Ryan two-ss), Albers, Walters, ...? Zero as well, and there is griping about them all the time. "Oh, not them, though. The good ones."

    I find it hard to go from Ramon Ortiz got 10 starts = Gardy loves veteran pitchers. The reality of baseball rotations means that every season you're probably going to have 10 or more guys make a...

    This meme is really getting ridiculous. Gardy has had a bunch of young rotations and plays lots of young players in key situations. Cripes, down the stretch in 06, he was relying on Boof and...

    The Twins traded Worely because he was going to be buried here at AAA and be so far down the depth chart that it was addition by subtraction for us. And it was a chance for redemption for Worely.

    I'm not buying into him yet. He has started 4 games for Pittsburgh. While his numbers on the outside look good, and his K's are up, his BABIP is a tiny .210. Still good for a FIP of 3.87 which is...

    Nolasco, Gibson, and Hughes aren't going anywhere for 2015. I think that's been stated multiple times here. I think Pelfrey is going to get a spot regardless as well (even though personally I'd...

    I get the distinct impression they are lining up who it is they are calling up. May has been lined up with KC and will replace KC when he's traded or let go. Darnell was lined up with Deduno and...

    Well, I think the point is that it isn't Gardy's call. He might have some input. He might say "I don't want to start Deduno any more." But I don't think he gets to say "Call up May."

    Personally... I never place a lot of faith in sound bites or quotes. How a manager feels about a ballplayer could never be boiled down to a sentence.

    Repeating myself... I was shocked that Hicks...

    Lots of armchair psychologists here.

    He needs to go to AAA so he can get more experience hitting RHP from the RH side of the plate. That's all they need to say.

    Slow down. Phil Hughes as a Top 20 pitcher (or maybe Top 20 AL pitcher) may be a discussion. Gibson is not even close to that.

    Anyone who's played fantasy baseball or tracks this stuff...

    I have 37 starts and 18 at catcher in 62 games. I guess those pinch hitting games is where the 70% comes from. That doesn't seem like consistent play. I also am hopeful that we have leaders that...

    There is no rational justification for extending Kurt Suzuki. This hitting tear he is on will not last.

    Why has Arcia been playing every day for two weeks in Rochester if he's still "sore"? No one is allowed to play at the big league level with any ounce of soreness.

    Another rough-ish one for Tonkin, its time for him to go get some seasoning, maybe we won't even replace him with another pitcher.

    I think expectations for Santana are out of whack with his career .711 minor league OPS.

    Incompetence is a two-way street, though, so I do have to give the Twins credit for not giving away as many games as their opposition has. Especially last week when the Twins were fielding...

    I liked my mid 70's win projection before the season and I haven't seen much to make me deviate from that number. They're playing an absolutely brutal early schedule and haven't been blown off the...

    When Fuld comes off the DL, maybe you option Hicks at that point and hope he can find his swing in AAA. But Santana in center is not an option. I was surprised Steiny made that move. It worked this...

    What We Should Have Done

    The night that Escobar played Left Field and botched the ball to lose the game, it just occurred to me what we should have done.

    Plouffe actually played a pretty good corner outfield. Gardy...
