    If I'm going to watch bad baseball and try to hope for the future....it's sure as hell a lot easier to convince myself it'll get better when the guys aren't 35-40. Especially if they have zero trade...

    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)...

    Can't we just be happy about the success of a Twins MiLB player without taking a swipe at the front office for not promoting a 20 year old pitcher to AA after 15 starts?

    There's still a lot of...

    You want to trade the best pitcher the Twins have had in years for salary relief? Pelfreys contract is not going to hamstring them at all

    The Twins played their first game at the old Met. I was 9 years old and already quite familiar with the place as a Minneapolis Miller fan, but having a big league club in town to cheer for was...

    Assuming $30 isn't your life savings :), it's just a fun thing to do.

    As for whether you're an idiot, I don't know you well enough -- but Mark DeRosa is telling me to go ahead and vote yes.

    I think what would change the nature of the Twins would be finding 6 of 8 fielders who can field and hit above major league average.

    Just a couple thoughts in response:

    1.) Has anyone really ever called Kevin Correia an Ace? He was the Twins best pitcher (arguably) last year, but no one puts him in the "ace" category.
    2.) We...

    Perhaps this was mentioned in the last dozen or so posts that I skipped past, but what about a double switch?

    Pinto in for Florimon and Escobar in for Suzuki.

    Of course, I would immediately...

    I don't see it as "pessimism" to expect the most probable outcome. That's realism.

    The bigger issue is that, even putting aside the various prospect setbacks, having a highly-rated farm system...

  17. The Surprisingly Simple Solution to the 25th man question

    I have nothing against Parmelee or Collabello, however neither bring much to the team other than a decent bat at best, no defense, no speed, no intangibles. They need to use that 25th spot on a guy...

    Coworker of mine told me that we'd have better weather in March than we did in February. But there it goes snowing again, and it's been cold. I guess by some metrics it was more temperate, but it was...

    Frankly, I have a hard time with anyone who feels optimism is a requirement to be a "real fan". I don't think it's fair to throw a criticism like that around just because people are taking a sober...

    Exactly, and I'd guess two or maybe three of those guys will be in Rochester on March 31, meaning the whole "stepping up" conversation is a load.

    Also, ripping Hicks is just insane to me. He was...
