Revere broke his ankle yesterday so he's out a while.
Span has been moved down to 7th in batting order today
I 100% believe this as its not in Terry Ryan's DNA to spend money on people he deems unworthy. Problem is that other organizations have deemed our players worthy thru years that Ryan/MN front office...
Why ever compare players then??? How few are gonna have exact ages/experience

think Logan Darnell has a better shot than Albers, whom Ive heard Reusse say the Twins dont think too highly of.
Ive been a big fan of Hendriks and want him to get another shot.
With only 62 innings pitched, there is no reason to put a 25 yr old (in NOV) on the 40 man. Nobody is gonna take him & have him pitch all of next yr......think of all the better prospects that get...
With DeVries having elbow troubles all year & the way he's pitched.....I hope its not the dreaded misdiagnosed TJ injury.
Hernandez is/should be tried as more of a lefty reliever....esp long...

Ryan is combing the minors for the next Eduardo Escobar & Pedro Hernandez.
How the times have changed.
The end of Gardy is near which means the end of Rick Anderson is also.
How much of their success leaving MN has to do w/'change of scenery', which I attribute to leaving Andy's reign.
Is there any other reason than its his first full season away from Rick Anderson
Would like to get a longer everyday look.....not like this team has too many right handed hitters
He'll move to SS soon.....wonder if JJ Hardy is available!!
Bill Smith didn't get to stick around to see his prospects flourish so why should Terry Ryan?
Don't root for Twins to lose...tho I caught myself doing it this yr.....but rather for specific...
Under no circumstances would I think that Terry Ryan would even take a sniff of Hughes, who I really like.

Twins currently have the 5th worst record in MLB & on pace for 93 losses......that should answer the question.
Good managers get fired every year (world series winners Charly Manuel & Mike Scoscia...

I'm not turned off by Sano as 2 current all stars struggled in their time @ AA also....Bryce Harper & Manny Machado....at the same age but used their time to learn.
I'm a huge believer in him but he just haant had the time in as well as closing any games that matter
Today on ESPN 1500, Jeff Dubay has been arguing that the Twins closer is top 5 & is astonished he was only added to all star game as an injury replacement to Jessie Crain. He is very solid but...

To contradict myself, I think 28 starts is enough to judge Anthony Swarzak but 22 starts from Liam Hendriks isnt.
Some of that comes from minor league numbers & some is the age difference of 3 yrs...

I 100% disagree with ya.
Anthony has had 28 starts with a 5.79ERA w/ .835OPS and has only pitched 146 innings in those.
However, he's found a nice niche as a middle guy w/3.92ERA & .722OPS.

missed Polanco/Keplar and would BUT what team is gonna Rule V them & keep a low A kid for a whole year when most dont even do it for older more established guys.
Sano & Rosario. Dont get a feeling...

Agree.....I believe Aaron is gonna get some RF experience before next July
11 for last 26 over 8gms raising his average 27 points to .261 & his slugging 43 points to .400
Baby steps, but you gotta start somewhere.
Needs a big 2nd half to get back into prospect standings.

Unless Im missing someone, I dont see their being 'that' difficult of decisions for 40 man.
Darnell & Albers are easy adds. I would guess Deibinson Romero maybe. James Beresford, I wouldnt. Those...

100% w/ya on Nick, but I would bet he does get another shot.
Albers/Darnell will both get 40 manned as their isnt a shortage of spots they can take.....nice to see what they have when they are ready...
