    Interesting. Maybe I was just thinking of the 40 man pay bump. I think I was thinking once a player made the 40 man roster he was automatically awarded the minimum salary which I believe is around...

    I don't think that's true. Once he was promoted to the Big League club his salary should have become guaranteed for the year. I might be wrong......but I don't think I am.

    Why does Dozier keep coming up in these discussions? 27 year old All-Star at a very shallow position still under team control. These are the type of players you build around, not trade away.

    Why would it be a stretch at all? A veteran with an expiring contract on a team out of contention and he for all intents and purposes he has pitched better as of late. I would almost say I think it...

    I'm not buying into him yet. He has started 4 games for Pittsburgh. While his numbers on the outside look good, and his K's are up, his BABIP is a tiny .210. Still good for a FIP of 3.87 which is...

    Why even risk paying him $15M in a QO? He will be 36, he has had injury concerns the last two seasons, his defense will just keep dwindling and if they were ever going to get anything for him in a...

    I don't mean for the rest of the year. I mean for the next 2-3 years with this big money extension talk. He would have to tank pretty hard to get his numbers to career norms at this point, but what...

    Maybe he's busting out of it?

    Last 29 AB:

    12/29, .414, 5 2B and 9 RBI. He has only walked once and K'd 5 times, but he looks more aggressive at the plate and the hits are falling.

    So if there is such a shortage of catchers, especially hitting the market, why are teams so reluctant to give up anything more than a C prospect for him? To the right team who is making a run and...

    I honestly think there are some on this board that if they took over the team would DFA Correia, Burton, Deduno and Matty G tomorrow and call up 4 prospects just because the Twins are "rebuilding." ...

    Agree 100%. He will be 31 at the end of the year, is hitting 60 points better than his career AVG and OBP in half a season with us, and you want to lock him up now!? He is much, much more likely to...

    As much as I was all for DFA'ing Burton in April, the last 7 weeks he has been much better. In 9IP in April he gave up 3 HR, walked 8 while only striking out 5. Since then in 22IP, he has given up...

    9+ years he has spent in the Twins minor league system. One of those things I truly love about baseball. The guy is 30 years old, finally going to get a taste of the big leagues. Good luck Yohan!

    Which moves did the Twins miss out on when they had the nucleus to win it all? Sure there have been some bad moves....mainly the Nishioka and Hardy situation. Ramos can't stay healthy in Washington,...

    I'm hoping this recent stretch of good pitching from KC will give him just enough trade value to land a prospect of at least a little value at the deadline, and I'm hoping that's the Twins plan as...

    Too early to even think about getting rid of Nolasco. You just don't sign a FA like that and give up on him after less than a half of baseball. He wasn't exactly helped out by that defense...

    3 hits, on base base 4/5 times and twice those hits came with two strikes. Really hope this gets things going for him, he hit the ball solid all day.

    The Twins took a different approach in it was not a planned rebuild. The 2010 team won 94 games and had a roster that was primed to do it again in 2011. What they didn't plan on was missing 328...

    Well I certainly didn't say it was do-able, if I were the Twins though I'd be hard pressed to give up anything more than that with the current OF in the system.

    I really think it depends on the prospect. Fien and a C prospect? Get it done. THe real question would be what to do with Jay after this season.

    I agree with his 2nd point about learning to hit RH pitching from the right side on the fly, and I think most of us agree it should be in AAA. But I strongly dislike he used the phrase "embarrassing...

    Well the Mets are still paying Bobby Bonilla 1.19M every year until 2035 and he hasn't played for them in 15 years so....that one is pretty bad.
