    Today's reason why Cory Provos needs to be fired; in reference to Brian Dozier's .356 OBP, and I quote, "that's phenomenal for a leadoff hitter".

    I have no words.

    Who says no first?

    In the proposed trade below, between St. Louis and the Twins.

    Buxton and Meyer for Taveras and Wacha.

    My gut says St. Louis says no before the Twins, but I'm curious to see what everyone else...

    Can't wait to see the Jones boys (Zach and Tyler) throwing 98-100 mph bb's at batters in the 7th and 8th in a couple of years. Convert May to a reliever, get Bard healthy, and that's a bullpen...

    I'm not totally surprised by the Cats not making the playoffs this year, as the core of their roster came from a pretty bad Fort Myer's squad last year. If you look at the affiliates challenging...

    I like May, and I think he's a valuable piece, but he's a guy that is almost 24, and in his second full season at AA, he is largely the same pitcher. His ERA, WHIP, and K/9 are largely the same,...

    Prior to the July deadline, reports had the Orioles dangling Bundy. As far as wondering if we should give up Rosario (thereby leaving us with Dozier long term at 2B), a potential ace starter is well...

    If the Twins are really going to go after a big name, I would rather see them make a buy-low play for Dylan Bundy. You'll have him back at the end of next year from TJ, and he can then pair with...

    GCL Pitchers--Aug 9

    Meyer starts, Stewart relieves. The future of the Twins rotation in one game.

    Meyer--1.2 IP, 3H, 1 BB, 1 ER, 5 K
    Stewart--2 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 ER, 2K

    All in all not terrible. I'm hoping Meyer...

    How many more starts are the Davies/Blackburn pupu platter going to get?

    This is why I'm befuddled as to why he is up right now. It's a nice story, and I'm happy for Mr. Bernier, but is there any reason Dozier/Escobar and Florimon/Escobar shouldn't be manning the MI...

    Best Case Scenario 4 years. 2014 in A, 2015 in A+/AA, 2016 in AA/AAA, 2017 in MLB.

    IF all of them make it, and at this point, the odds are more likely that none of them do than all of them do, it...

    How much longer will "Blackie" continue to take up starts? If he's giving up more than a hit an inning against 18 and 19 year olds in their first taste of Pro Ball, I shudder to think what would...

    Where is Stewart?

    I thought he went to the GCL, but he has yet to make an appearance. When is he going to throw a pitch in a game that counts?

    Because K's are not the end-all, be-all of pitching. They require a pitcher to throw more pitches, therefore limiting their innings, and when you have a shaky bullpen, that's not a good thing. Of...

    Odds that every single Twins affiliate finish .500 or better this year? I have to think its pretty good.

    There is no reason to keep Hicks in AAA. He needs to be in the bigs, getting AB's, and if that means Clete Thomas collects splinters, so be it. Hicks and Arcia are foundational players for our next...

    Granted, the point was simply that Houston didn't think he'd be a starter, and he then turned into the best starter of the mid '00's.

    I see. So if Escobar was still on the South Side, the White Sox would be running away with the Central. Good to know.

    If you proposed Arcia for Kershaw to the Dodgers, straight up, they'd laugh at you, hang up the phone, then call you back so they could laugh at you some more. Getting Kershaw right now, the...

    My sources have told me that the issue with Santana is focus, in that he doesn't make the routine plays. If so, and if Gardy is still the manager, I GUARANTEE Santana will not start for long,...

    A guy who is a 3 means he is one of the 75 best SP's in the league at the time. If the 23rd pitcher taken in this year's draft turns into that, I think you're in pretty good shape. Not to mention,...
