    I like the comparison to Cuddy. I don't like the promotion/demotion idea, but the options shouldn't matter since they've both used theirs for the year, so they can go up and down as much as they'd...

    Agreed. Heck, if we're going to pass judgement on a SSS, he has a lower K% than last year. His minor league OBP was consistently in the .350-.400 range. Will he achieve that in the majors? Maybe...

    Even though the Twins have had a tough stretch, the lineup just feels a little more exciting with Danny, Ozzie, Eddie E, and Josmil-ie.

    It's one halfway decent start in AAA. Don't forget, he threw 3 CGs in Rochester last year, and 1 was a shutout. He has the potential to dominate AAA hitting...sometimes. Let's start pointing...

    Sounds perfect. I mean, who's better on the bench: a player who's maybe marginally better defensively than the other solution at SS (Florimon over Escobar) or a player who has over 400+ more...

    My glass half-full take: it won't be long before players start coming off the DL, and it's almost impossible (I hope) that PFlo and Herrmann aren't casualties in one of those moves. I have a vision...

    Big picture, I totally agree. There's a clear opportunity to upgrade the SS position, and there's money to be spent. If the 2nd rounder can be justified, it would be great for Ryan to pull the...
