    Exactly. Let the kid work on his fielding without so much pressure. It takes a huge amount of time and reps to become a major league fielder. Let him bust his butt and make his mistakes in the low...

    Of the three you listed, May is the most likely to implode, given his prior reputation for shaky control. Deduno isn't a precision pitcher either, but he misses bats better than any other Twins...

    How fleeting is fame. Has everybody forgotten about Ryan "Elvis" Pressly? Last year they were talking about him like a Trevor May type developmental prospect. Great stuff, lacks polish. Seems to me...

    Fly ball pitcher. Good grief, why does a major league baseball team want a pitcher whose stuff winds up going over people's heads? Is there no way Tevor May can throw a pitch that results in a...

    Not quite ready to give up on Florimon. Late last season his stance and decision making started looking better at the plate. This season he got a slow, delayed start because of his appendicitis. I...

    Kubel: We got lucky. His injuries are healed, and Kubes is now back to his form from a few years ago. Looks like he's in good physical shape, and I always thought his arm was above average strength...

    Kyle Gibson now passes the eyeball test. He throws on a good downward plane, gets good sink while bending it right or left. His ability to change speeds is key because it gives his stuff one more...

    Pelfrey's got good control of his two-seamer, but he's throwing waaaaay too many of them, and hitters are adapting. He's got to start mixing in a cutter that bends the other way. Even if he can't...

    Chris Colabello sounds like the kind of man you'd like to have on any team, any sport, in any capacity you can get him. The best thing about Twins Daily really is not just baseball news, but also...

    Wow, do I like Colabello's attitude. I hope he's seen some footage of Manny Ramirez. There's a guy that could blast to all fields and adjust to different speeds better than just about anybody.

    First legitimate use of Google Glass: Project a strike zone rectangle for umpires to train their eye.

    Gibson's got the stuff to dominate. He's got the build to last into late innings. Make a whinny, ya big stud horse!

    AJ, after reading this, I'd like to meet you just to shake your hand for this perceptive essay. It's so true that we can miss much of the experience of life, as we do so many things by habit and...

    Parmelee should stay. Much as I liked Kubel in his previous stint with the Twins, it's Parms that is more likely to find his form and go on a tear sometime during the season, and he's a better...

    I like the photo...tending to the temple.

    Aaron Hicks, y'all! This is the year, when he steps up and starts bangin. I can just feel it!

    Not backwards at all. From a developmental standpoint this seems completely logical, assuming the team wants to bring along young players and possibly help older veterans regain their previous form. ...

    I've always liked Jason Kubel but right now his niche is the same as Parmelee's, and Parms wins that battle.

    I've always liked Jason Kubel but right now his niche is the same as Parmelee's, and Parms wins that battle.

    So now the Twins start the year with a whole bunch of mediocre pitchers. Is a .500 season their lofty goal?

    Hurraymeh. Wowmeh. Yippeemeh.

    I get the impression that Meyer still needs to work on being more artful with his heater. If batters can tell when he's about to unload a fastball, then maybe the answer is to learn how to...

    I liked the action Gibson had on his sinker. He had it running to the right and down, almost like a lefty slider, but of course from a RH release point, so it's harder to get batters to wave at it. I...

    Don't see much harm in giving a guy like Santana a cup of coffee. Maybe he'll get jazzed and look like a superstar, maybe he'll get over-excited and look like a fool. Either way it will provide some...

    I've got nothing against Kurt Suzuki, but he's definitely not the future catcher for this club. Why not start Pinto, who may be the future backstop, and have Herrmann or Fryer back him up? What's the...

    What Gibson said reminded me of early Frank Viola. In his first year he was clearly over-anxious and didn't pitch very well. After he learned to relax, he became Sweet Music.

    And who names a ligament Ulnar, anyway? Hey Ulnar, get a clue! Yeah you, ya weak little ligament that likes to pop, just to piss me off! Hey Ulnar, Thor called, he wants his hammer's name back!
