    Without a doubt, trading Dozier would be a very strange move, thus the need for a ridiculously good offer. I can't see much likelihood anybody offers anything close to good enough. If somebody...

    Hate to pile on, but anytime you have to start with "If the Twins sweep..." you're really reaching. It's possible, but unlikely.

    I don't see much reason to rule out trading anyone, but that...

    I certainly wouldn't expect someone who would otherwise be a really good starter should instead be slotted in as a long-reliever just because of the hand he throws with (not sure how that was somehow...

    In regards to Johnson/Darnell being in the pen, wouldn't it make sense for a team loaded with right-handed starters (Nolasco/Hughes/Gibson/Meyer/May/Stewart/Berrios) to want a left-handed long-relief...

    Pelfrey seems like he should be in the bullpen next year, to me, assuming he's even healthy. Before he was signed we had Hughes, Nolasco, and Correia guaranteed in the rotation, needing to fill two...

    Tossing out random thoughts on this: Pitchers often speak about having the "feel" on any given day for their pitches. Would the large amount of warmup relate to trying to find their "feel" that...

    I may not represent everyone here, but I think most Bison fans have reached a point of indifference to the UND We-Don't-Have-A-Mascot-Anymore. Maybe if we actually play again in some sport someday,...

    Not watching the game, just glanced at the gamecast online, so I'll assume this was of the variety of getting Perkins in the game to help "keep him sharp" or whatever they call it? My question is:...

    I can't really disagree with any of your analysis per se, but we're also running out P-Flo and his .325 OPS at short right now. Ozzie Smith can't overcome that batting line with his defense, so I'd...

    Didn't he sign for like half a million dollars the year we also got Sano?

    I just hope Polanco gets a start before getting sent down again. I realize it's more emergency move than anything else until somebody gets off the DL, but getting called up and then not playing...

    I was just glancing through his Adopt-a-Prospect writeup since I'm not familiar with him, but Brandon Peterson is having quite a season. He seems like another one of our now numerous hard-throwing...

    It's easy to see how things could potentially still work out this season and have a chance at the playoffs, but it's also pretty easy to see how unlikely that is. Maybe if they'd won 2 or 3 of these...

    Pino gets this start while they decide which of Burton, Guerrier, and Deduno to let go, then transitions to the pen when they bring up May? Please?

    I've kind of assumed that's what's happening here. Santana is hitting well enough that he should be in the lineup for now. Since Escobar is also one of our better hitters at the moment, that means...

    I'll be honest, I kinda want Touki too. More of a risk, so I don't really expect it, but it would definitely put a smile on my face. Lots of guys have 95+ fastballs, give me somebody with a monster...

    Somebody already mentioned it, but now is when the Sano injury really bites. There's not much to see in AAA to come up and help our hitting lineup (Deibinson Romero for Kubel?). If Sano was there...

    The only real fix to this problem is just accepting that two of our five best hitters right now are catchers and playing them both anyway. If you drop Kubel off the roster to put Herrmann on it, I...

    How could you not want somebody named Touki Touissant on your team? I haven't looked through the whole list but I'd wager on him having the "most-fun-to-say" name in the draft.

    And yet they've been doing it regularly this year, enough for a sub .200 BA to have a near league average OBP. Apparently Major League pitchers don't subscribe to your philosophy. Why are they more...

    You left Casey Fien off your list of candidates. Non-closer relief pitchers are never what people think of for All-Star games, but there's almost always one there.

    I'd love to know what kind of reputation he has with other teams at this point. Do they groan when they see him getting ready to pitch or is he still just some semi-random guy in the Twins' pen?
