I see what you're saying. WAR isn't a counting stat because it can count backwards, but it's a cumulative stat in that a player needs to play a lot of innings defensively or acquire a lot of PAs to...

The ol' ball under the glove trick, where you just let it pass on by.

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...

These comments on the Twins "Nearing the end of their patience" combined with posters that are fine seeing Hicks getting sent away... I feel like I watch baseball in a totally different universe.

TD seems to rarely come to a consensus on things, but one point that was made loud and clear on the debate over the interesting handling of OF depth in the early parts of the season was the...
Fun one about TD's favorite two debate topics:
Hicks has passed Mauer in OBP (.338 to .336)
What planet do we live on again?

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.

In news that has nothing to do with this game, anyone see our guy Drew lighting up the gun the other day?
According to PitchFX on a pretty decent sample of 7 career batters faced, he's got a nice...

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...
This sentence screams "mid-2000s Nick Punto."

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...

The Twins batters have been more terrible at not getting struck out lately...
What's the opposite of a silver lining?
05-05-2014, 04:20 PM
It's disappointing. At least he's going with Escobar since his bat has been pretty hot lately---- oh wait
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...
I agree. Furthermore, Suzuki hasn't done anything to be taken out of the lineup either. I know that Zukes isn't part of the "long-term plan," but sitting 1 GB, the fan in me wants to see the lineup...
Besides, if Arcia is up (and possibly Willingham too) in a game with Pinto at DH and Zukes at C, Pinto has to switch to catcher, and you've got 2 of Kubel/Hammer/Arcia/Colabello on the corners, that...
Glass half full take: At least he has over 200 professional games in the outfield. A certain other potential defensive OF replacement to start the year had roughly 0.

Apparently he is "ready" for CF... in Minneapolis

I'm watching on WGN, and they're terrible there too. I mean, you can catch heckling and full drunken conversations almost as clearly as the play-by-play.
Does Target Field sound this annoying when...

Huh, never heard of the place. Is that one of those sheep-farming cities Brian was talking about?
There had been a lot of concern in the forums that Hicks, Arcia, and Pinto would all start in AAA. Are we, as a forum, so disappointed that we can't get worked up about their demotion now that they...
One thing that I've been curious about is whether Presley deserves a similar opportunity at consistent at bats. The thing going against him most seems to be that he's got a couple years of age on...
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...
