    I probably wont use it since the selection is horrid, but I'm sure some people will be getting the biggest beers then can.
    It will be fun to people watch.

    When Worley was traded, I said something along the lines of "if Vance comes back with the Pirates, Anderson needs to be fired."

    I've followed the Twins for a long time. This may be the most...

    This. Rebuilding doesn't mean throwing a guy into the fire who isn't ready. When you have a guy who isn't ready, you get a vet on a short term contract to hold the place.

    He has 15 starts in A+. He's only 20 years old. It's not as if the Twins have been making him slog through one level a season.

    The Twins have the youngest pitcher in the Midwest League (Thorpe)...

    I agre that AAA should very rarely be used for top prospects. . . it is an area for marginal prospects and former MLBer's to be housed who can contribute to an MLB roster when needed.

    I'm of the...

    The Twins number one priority, is to have a better and more entertaining product on the field. The Twins realize that they have to stop the exodus from Target Field. Making wholesale trades in the...

    With Nick Gordon's family tree, we probably should've insisted on his first born in his deal, too.

    Chris King @StatsKing · 18h
    Looking back at my chart for Berrios, it's crazy how he locates down and to both sides with all pitches. Rarely finds the heart of...

    Eduardo Escobar . . .

    I know this is the Danny Santana story and I don't mean to derail any conversation but we've seen a few late bloomers like Span, Cuddy, Dozier, Plouffe. Maybe Escobar is...

    There's a lot to digest with this signing. I'm on board with culling underperforming veterans who will not be part of the future: Kubel, Burton, Correa, Deunsing. (Even Willingham if the Twins can...

    With the MLB Draft going on I put together a database of the Twins minor league system and wanted to see the impact the draft has had on the Twins organization. Some interesting (at least to me)...

    They didn't trade prospects for him. They're not hurting anything. They will still need to make an assessment of where they are on 7/31 and trade those who should be traded if they're not in...

    It's inexcusable to play Kubel over Parmelee at this point.

    I don't hate this draft.

    Just about every guy picked 3-10, taken individually, seem to be a decent pick. Clay might have been a round early, though it appears there are projectables there the...

    Let's focus more this this from my 10-round mock:

    Round 9 (Pick 260 -$150,600): OF Max Murphy, Bradley.

    I found Trevor Plouffe's comments to be a little enlightening -- and I hope that Hicks can learn to trust the process and that it then produces results:

    Obviously, Worley was terrible last year and this spring. But, they gave up a #1 draft pick for him and another guy who may never make it. He cleared waivers. Why not do everything you can to get...
