    Ooops. My bad. In any case, my argument is still that I want to see them continue to drag pitching into the system.

    Stewart is so young, I wouldn't worry about blocking him right now. What they need to worry about is finding better pitchers than their current rotation if they want to be a winning team in the next...

    I don't know what Dozier would bring back unless he continues to do what he's doing for a couple months but I think trying to sell high on some players is the best bet if the Twins really do want to...

    I feel like the only problem with LoMo in Miami was that the team was giving him flack for Twitter at a time when he was performing. That's what caused the personality friction. Since that time, he...

    I would point out that a lot of those teams, even the ones who have been relevant for a while like the Braves, Cards, and Rays, keep the farm system pumping and don't cling to players after their...

    I would be a little surprised to see Rosario and Buxton on the 2014 Twins. Rosario looks like he needs at least another full season in the minors and they probably won't rush Buxton.

    I think Mayo is probably the least credible of the major prospect writers so I have some bias here but I also think his picks in the past seem to be skewed by fantasy baseball in that he appears to...

    I think the moral of the story is Jim Bowden says a lot of things and, if he were any good at building a baseball team, he'd be working in a front office and not writing for a website (no offense,...

    To me it just looks like the front office has no interest in major league talent other than guys who can give Mauer some rest (like Doumit) or filling in a massive black hole (Worley and Willingham)....

    If they can gain a player they can use in the future and they're not planning to bring Morneau back, then they should eat whatever they have to. It's a sunk cost on a losing season. It can only help...

    I have the same concern about the coaches. There's not a lot of evidence behind it, but how many guys have recently joined the Twins from other teams and then suddenly taken a big step forward?

    Because it's getting better over time and both Fangraphs and BBREF would probably tell you that the other site's WAR is actually a pretty good estimate of the player's over-all value?

    It's...

    The thing is, those trades came down to other factors. The Rays probably didn't trade Young because of stats; they traded him because he had terrible make-up issues (insert pun here) and they got the...

    My issue with what Pohlad said is, if they know they have to build for the future, why do they keep clinging to veterans who could bring back players who could help them in the future? I'm not...

    I don't think money will be an issue because I don't think a lot of teams will have a lot of interest in Morneau. "Since the trade deadline" isn't really a signficant amount of games. Anybody can get...

    My problem with Ryan is that, once he made the trades, he decided that the team's best option was to sacrifice a year of control on Hicks and rush him up the the majors and then leave him there once...

    I would debate the point that the Twins have much of a chance to have an Orioles-like season. First of all, the Orioles basically tied math to a chair and beat it senseless last season leading to...

    Raw power was starting to show prior to 2012, great range, had a terrible 2012 that led to a diminished outlook for his future.

    LOL. This could be very true. Indians, Royals, and White Sox are all hovering around it each other it seems.

    The guys at the top of the rotation get more starts since you can take advantage of off-days to give them more rest. This is a very bad idea.

    I wouldn't worry too much. They are two very different prospects. Hicks has a lot more going for him than Benson.

    I think it's a lot better to start Hicks in AAA, let him see some borderline major...

    The Indians have a better offense than the Twins with decent defense. Their rotation is probably as good as the Twins. The Royals are average to above average in left field, center, third, short,...

    I agree completely that, long-term, Span is much more likely to stick as the every-day center fielder than Revere due to Revere's limitations with the bat and his arm. Span is a very good center...

    I still don't really consider Cabrera a third baseman because I think, as the season wears on, Feilder and Cabrera will end up splitting most of their time between 1B and DH if Inge hits well enough...
