    But you're only using one constant: the catcher.

    Pitchers, umpires, and everything else that influences the metric change and in time, their inconsistencies are negated.

    No, but theoretically, the law of large numbers would balance it out.

    It's the main reason why I'm skeptical of short-term usage of pitch framing, particularly when the catcher plays for a single...

    Not me. I'm of the opinion that Meyer should be called up before he comes close to his innings limit. Get him 40-50 innings in MLB and shut him down for the season.

    Sure. If you can get a top shortstop, the trade makes sense.

    It's unlikely the Twins will get a top shortstop, as teams don't often trade them.

    I don't agree with this at all. Remember, LaTroy Hawkins was once a fireballer with bad secondary stuff. He failed miserably as a starter.

    Relievers can get by with two pitches. MLB hitters will...

    Agreed. Opening one hole to fill another seems foolish to me, even if I think closers are ridiculously overrated.



    Nick Burdi comes to mind... But having Burdi in the eighth and Perkins in the...

    I don't see a large value difference between Perkins today and Perkins 16 months from now, provided he stays healthy.

    I say hold on to Perkins until more information is available. If the Twins...

    Thanks, everybody. I think I've narrowed down the offending network. I have reached out to them, waiting for a response.

    Ortiz was pretty highly regarded as a prospect, he simply couldn't stay healthy in Minnesota.

    Yep. I've also been frustrated with past deadlines but the phrase "it takes two to tango" seems like the most likely cause for the lack of movement. Ryan won't give players away and I commend him for...

    Interesting. If that article is accurate - and there's no reason to believe it isn't - then it sounds like trading Suzuki is the prudent move. If he won't sign a reasonable extension before the...

    Yes. He's an above average MLB player in his prime seasons with no replacement ready to fill his role.

    Trading Dozier seems very foolish to me unless the offer floors you (ie. a top 25 prospect)....

    I'm a pretty big Kluwe fan but he needs to walk away and let this go, particularly after his Penn comments went public. He doesn't really have a leg to stand on at this point. Glass houses, throwing...

    Indeed. People don't realize just how good the Twins system is right now. That's why I'm not necessarily in favor of trading a guy like Suzuki unless the return is great. Upside prospects are great;...

    Law has always believed that... No reason to change his opinion due to the fact that Sano hasn't logged an inning in the field since he last wrote up a prospect sheet.

    I'm not bashing Plouffe at all. He's an adequate starter and I'm all for sticking him at third until Sano is ready.

    But a Koskie comp? That's a bad comparison. Koskie was a very good player....

    Corey Koskie posted a combined WAR of almost 16 in his last three seasons with the Twins.

    Trevor Plouffe is on track to post a WAR of ~2 this season, which would be a career high.
