    The problem is that there aren't a lot of singularly great 16 yr old prospects like Sano. Additionally even the best international FA's have a poor track record of success. Aside from MCab 15 years...

    Swarzak didn't have trade value over the offseason for the same reason that Duensing doesn't have trade value now. RP's with below avg K rates are not valuable trade chips. The best you can hope...

    This thread wasn't really about pushback to keep Anderson as pitching coach. It was more about applying blame and credit equally. If you are going to blame Anderson for failing to make mediocre...

    It took Gomez 5 years to post a .700+ OPS. And he had a better offensive starting point that Hicks. The lesson that should have been learned was that Hicks looked really raw and he should have...

    For starters let's not call it an extension. We could bring him back in the offseason on a 1 yr deal but you make that decision when you see how the market is playing out and after any rookies have...

    Nobody should expect a .700+ OPS out of either Santana or Escobar. You can't look at <400 PA's for Escobar and believe that he is just getting it. Both of them appear to be fine SS's until someone...

    Except he isn't the same pitcher. He ditched his slider (according to fangraphs and Pitch F/X) and is throwing a cutter (a lot). These are substantial differences in how a pitcher is approaching...

    I think the twins are hoping that Eddie Rosario can be the CF option instead of a Jon Jay type. I would be very surprised if he doesn't get 2 months in CF this year.

    Except it doesn't. OPS, wRC and wOBA are much better.

    For whatever reason his Toronto (AAA) stats show up on the Rochester statsheet. I thought he was gone also but wasn't keeping that close of watch on the minors this year.

    But that just reinforces...

    My interest in Hicks has increased since he has given up SH. Clearly he needs time in AAA to work on this but he has tools at least.

    I wish people would stop using 25 PA sample sizes as evidence...

    Parmelee's future with the Twins is being able to take advantage of an AB here and a game there to show that he has some talent. He will certainly be glued to the bench for awhile (and deserves to...

    Why are we excited about a 31 yr old RP'ing prospect?

    It's too early to convert Meyer to a RP'er. If you do it now then he won't be able to handle a full season's innings next year.

    I'm not...

    I think I predicted that KC would pitch a gem in late April when there was a similar thread calling for his head. He did and we were blessed:cry: with another month. The thing is that he isn't...

    No, you don't mess with the players that are doing well. Dozier and Willy stay where they are at. Morales stays behind Willy.

    There isn't a huge difference in value between CF and 2B. Especially when most analysis said that Rosario played a tolerable 2B.

    There is a singular reason that he is playing CF. Aaron Hicks and the disaster that CF has been the last two seasons.

    He was projected as a guy that could stick in CF but would be a better corner...

    Burdi is not several years away. We should see him by next year at the latest. And this year is possible.

    RP'ers only throw 15-20 pitches in a game. It's going to be difficult to develop a 3rd pitch and use it enough that it is remotely effective.

    Using a single time that a college hitter squared...

    I don't expect the team to spend all of the money it could next season so a 1.5 yr commitment does not concern me at all. tbh it's almost perfect. If it works out they have him locked up through...

    Basically yes. If he signed then he couldn't play in the CWS and players aren't giving that up.
