    Agreed though I am not sure it was as much because of the improvement of the manager, but having a new boss generally makes people put forth their best. As a manager you tend to get the best results...

    It is a bit extreme, but losers stick with losers because if not, they would have a hard time looking in the mirror. Also, I know he is a nice guy, but Joe Mauer not demanding a trade or being vocal...

    What a joke and an insult to the fans. Removing Gardy was less about Gardy as a manager and more about holding individuals in the organization responsible for not doing their jobs well. Whether...

    I don't believe they need to make a "big splash" but they need to address their needs which are numerous. "Smart splashes" would be smart, but free agency is tough for a team that is not attractive...

    But what you fail to acknowledge is that bad drafts and missed free agents happen to EVERY team. The best teams are the ones that go outside of their ideal model to compensate for these mistakes...

    On your first point, I don't see how a player like Ellsbury blocks anyone. The job of the manager is to manage players to keep them happy while also putting the best 9 players on the field. If you...

    Well if that is the case, I can always follow the Twins through this site and through the box score until they get as serious about winning as I am. Opens up some time and money that is probably...

    This entire coaching staff;s tie is up IMO as well as Ryan's but it is due to accountability more than anything else. How can you hold players accountable when your are having a third straight...

    Perkins, Morneau and Pelfrey should all go, as well as Duensing and Doumit if anybody will take them. TR is making a huge mistake if he is holding onto Perkins, the one real asset we have. And both...

    Which becomes a huge issue if you don't have pitching. Pedro Floriman is a fine MLB SS if we have legitimate pitching. Where he becomes an issue is when you have terrible pitching and terrible...

    So bring him up when Gibson hits his innings limit or when one of the other starters gets hurt. My point is that you have already seen Hendriks in the majors, now it is time to give him possibly a...

    The Twins need pitching and pretty much only pitching. Why? Because we have stunk at developing our own pitching and we are too afraid to sign any top free agent pitchers. We don't need more...

    I am ok with Correia as a #4 or #5, not a #1. That being said, that isn't Correia's fault. A good signing that will go overlooked because the Twins made it their top SP signing rather than a solid...

    In my mind Terry Ryan's grade goes hand in hand with the Twins major league production which has been poor. Sure our farm system seems stocked, but that doesn't mean these prospects will turn into...
