    Why pay if you find a way not to?

    Another thing I never liked about BR was the lack of consistency from article to article. There were several catchy article titles that really failed to deliver...

    But this really isn't a reason. SD made this move to dump Headley and save money before he becomes a FA. I think they would have taken most anyone in return.

    Headley is an excellent buy low this...

    you just aren't making sense. Basically you are all over the place.

    just another reason to hate BR.

    The problem with this situation is that to be a writer you need published work but to get published work you basically need to start for free. I have thought about...

    Dominating requires stuff as much as results. Basically the Dodgers sold high on his results. this was still a massive overpay for butera though.

    If you look at this year's results he has a 6.5...

    I think May would have been an option if he hadn't just spent a month on the DL. Kind of silly to give a kid that is a prospect his first big league taste when he is rusty.

    Meyer is a case where...

    It's very difficult to build that established core if you keep trading from that core for maybe's that maybe will become that core in 2-4 years. I would like to have a few guys in place before the...

    The Garza's comparison is interesting. Garza's biggest issue was that all he wanted to do is throw fastballs and he basically fought with the pitching coaches about it. To the point where he was...

    Adrenaline has very little to do with not feeling the pain while playing baseball. While you are playing baseball your body is still loose and warm. The problem comes when you stop playing and your...

    Why would they have to carry more RP'ers? With more rest pitchers could stay in the game longer and reduce the need for so many RP'ers. The big problem with this is that it requires less brilliant...

    The Headley trade shouldn't be looked at what kind of package can X player get. This is a straight up salary dump of a struggling player that is becoming a FA in the offseason.

    Butera didn't bring in a dominating A type of prospect with potential. He brought in a non-dominant RP'ing prospect (SP'er for now) that doesn't project as an MLB'er. One that was later traded for...

    The problem is that the Twins don't have the pieces to get someone like Leake (or anywhere close to it) and a contender isn't going to trade one of its starters unless absolutely necessary.

    Are you honestly blaming Suzuki for Nolasco's disaster, KC's normalness, Deduno's ineffectiveness or Pelfrey's complete ineffectiveness?

    I think it's silly that this site seems to blame the...

    This isn't how baseball works. It's a team sport and you could have the best player in the world and still lose 96 games. To build a good team you need a core of really good players (such as...

    I'm perfectly fine with Suzuki for 2 yrs and double his salary for the same reason you say to not trade Plouffe. Pinto would be the starter but there are a lot of AB's for some crappy AAA guy and if...

    I think they would trade Cingrani but certainly not for guys like willy and Suzuki.

    This thread is a painful read.

    Why on Earth should the Twins trade on its only good, established, young players because he will be a FA in 5 years? His value will still be very high in 2-3 years....

    I would certainly move him for a pitcher like Alex Wood. He shouldn't be viewed as untouchable but this team should not be in a hurry to move him because of Rosario or Polanco.

    Suzuki - Deal. I don't think he will want an unreasonable amount. I like Pinto but the Twins have no depth at catcher and if Pinto struggles or gets injured the Twins won't be worrying if they...
