  1. Honeymoon Period for Pitching Staff?

    So when can we start critiquing the off season investments in starting pitching? End of April?, End of May?
  2. Yes, small sample size for Bartlett, but he...

    Yes, small sample size for Bartlett, but he nearly cost us the game yesterday with the misplay of Kipnis' double. Likewise he couldn't put the ball in play with a runner at third. These are the...

    How is it possible to be optimistic after being 0-2 against the team they will likely battle for last place? The losses were the result of elements we considered a team strength, but the performance...
  4. FiveThirtyEight piece: Four Strikes and You're Out

    Fivethirtyeight.com - Nate Silver's new website and its sports page is a great addition to the world of data analytics in sports for the serious fan. Today they posted this article about umpire...

    As someone who travels for work, MLB.tv will be fantastic. I will no longer be relegated to follow the games on gameday. So great to see that MLB recognizes how ridiculous it is to pay for MLB...
  6. MLB.TV now included with MLB Extra Innings

    I just discovered that MLB.tv is included in your cable/satellite MLB package, like MLB extra innings.

    Here's the link on how to connect your mlb.com account to your cable/satellite provider.

    I'm not dead yet - said Josh Willingham as he rounds the bases for his first hit and homerun in a millennium.

    23 LOB and 0 runs through 7.

    I sure hope they are saving all their hits for the regular season.

    People are getting this upset about the 25th roster spot. So who else do/did we have out there to be a super utility guy, who will be the cornerstone of the team's resurgence?

    Presley, Bernier,...
  10. I am not sure if it exciting or depressing to...

    I am not sure if it exciting or depressing to think that a guy who hit below .200 last year is being relied on to be a key bat for this year's team. Besides Mauer, he is the only guy who has shown...
  11. With regards to Parmalee and Pressly - classic...

    With regards to Parmalee and Pressly - classic case of addition by subtraction. Neither are in the long term plans and they do not bring any added value to the clubhouse.

    Kubel and Bartlett -...

    Unprecedented losing? You clearly were not around during the waning years of the Griffith dynasty.

    This franchise has been competitive for the better half of the last 25 years. We have seen...

    Let the Kyle Gibson era begin!
  14. Mauer as the leadoff makes zero sense. He has...

    Mauer as the leadoff makes zero sense. He has to be in a place to drive in runs. He is the only guy on the club who makes consistent contact.
  15. How many times will Joe Mauer be stranded at...

    How many times will Joe Mauer be stranded at second base this season. Kubel - K, Willingham pop out.

    Mauer has to hit third - doesn't he? - if we are ever going to get any runs.
  16. In retrospect, the loss of Sano and Rosario could...

    In retrospect, the loss of Sano and Rosario could really hurt the team this year. It is reasonable to assume both would have gotten major league time this year to spark the offense.

    As it pans...

    So, Scott Diamond is . . .

    put in the bullpen
    waived
    asked to slip in the shower and sprain his ankle.
  18. I do hope he clears waivers and the Twins can...

    I do hope he clears waivers and the Twins can send him down. I think the Twins would benefit from seeing whether he can make adjustments and reemerge. The fact that the guy had success with the Phils...

    It looked like his shoulder was bothering him, maybe it was his elbow - looked like he tweaked his knee walking to the dugout. Some time on the DL, a couple of rehab starts and who knows he might be...

    Should have asked where people live - assumes that all who visit are from MN.
  21. Why all the handholding? If he is a major...

    Why all the handholding? If he is a major leaguer, he needs to start playing with confidence and smarts now. We know he has the baseball IQ, he needs to play with confidence and resolve. There is...

    Don't you want Hicks to step up grab the CF job by the throat? Anything short of that and you have to believe that he is on the outside looking in on their long term plans. With Buxton and...

    The more I look at the current 40 man roster and the free agent signings this season, the more I am convinced that the team is trying to compete - but are really expecting the youth movement to start...

    Is it clear that the Twins FA signings this past season reflect a long term strategy of trying to effectively maximize the long term impact of their highest prospects? Starting Meyer's clock too...

    Hindsight is always 20/20. Sure we can second guess all day long whether we overpaid for Nolasco. I would rather have this conversation in May when we can look at Nolasco's and Garza's numbers.
