    "Just because he was out of shape".

    We are talking about professional athletes. How lazy and uncommited do you have to be to not not be in shape as a 20 y/o professional athlete? What kind of...

    I just tossed Thielbar in that group because I was not sure if they could get something in return. Yes, they should have done this long ago but our FO does have a difficult time committing to a...

    I hope they would make any trades that better position the team for the future. That's what you do with a bad team (ie. Astros) The only players on the 40 man roster I would not trade are Meyer,...

    This "silly" system offers a small degree of balance. With the gap in revenue growing even larger, it provides the teams at the bottom something in return for being a farm system for the Yankees,...

    They seem really high on Santana. He just is not ready defensively to play MLB. I think he gets a shot as soon as he gain consistency in the field. I recorded the St. Louis game and their announcers...

    Great post. Winning in this league is primarily predicated on drafting and development. You can’t correct the problem you cited (several years of bad drafting) in a couple years. The core problem...

    So, why have the Cubs, Pirates, and Astros not followed the blueprint above? The Astros payroll is about $60M less than the Twins last I checked. They should have made gigantic strides this year if...

    This is a really big year for our minor league IMO. Lot's of very young arms plus Meyer, May, and even Darnell. You could even look at Diamond and Worley in the same light as a prospect.

    Of course they want to make the 2014 team better. There are however several other influences to consider that resulted in favor of this specific investment and the decline of others. The pitching...

    I expect the average fan to fall back on the extremely parochial view that the problem is FA spending. I am rather surprised that a crowd as baseball savvy as this group continues to focus on FA...

    The answer is it depends on the terms of the deal and how sure the Twins FO is that Buxton will live up to expectations. (Not the Willie Mays expectations but high expectations). I think you do it if...

    Maybe my perception is off but was'nt Perkins a failed starter?

    Absolutely, I would much rather watch Hick's develop than watch Presley. Let's see what we have in him. If he develops enough offensively to play a corner spot, great. If not, he should have plenty...

    Put me in the "get him if he can stick at short camp".

    He is 23 and does not require a trade or draft pick compensation.

    Also, I agree with Mike, we can always use more assets.

    After 12 pages this might be the best point of all. Drew would not be likely to sign with the Twins unless we were willing to substantially overpay or nobody else wanted him.

    I think everyone...

    How does Diaz project? Can he play SS at the MLB level? I like to idea of an international FA in concept, at least in comparison to Drew. Theoretically, a "Diaz type" would be a long-term asset as...

    Any of the remaining options except Tanaka are stop gaps. I think there are better opportunity in the wings. There is a long list of Cuban players expected to become FAs before spring training. ...

    It is hard to argue that Florimon is part of a problem we have of several players posting an OPS of a #9 hitter. However another way to look at this problem is that Florimon's position is probably...

    There are very good reasons and they have all been given many times.

    Drew and Morales have little or nothing to do with rebuilding. They very likely would not be here when this team is ready to...

    From what I have observed, many fans elect to ignore the strategies of rebuilding because as fans they are desperate for Cano, Tanaka, Ellsbury, Garza, E. Sanatana, or even Jimenez type signings. ...

    How is “this line of arguing off”. Johnny made a very specific argument that they should have signed Grienke and Sanchez because they would have paid for themselves. We evaluated that premise listing...

    I think people need to put in perspective that until 2010, the Twins were a small market team. Revenues were just slightly above TB, OAK, and KC. So, it makes no sense to complain about the Twins...

    This is a really attractive tactic on the surface. Part of me really likes the potential. However, I have to believe rolling FAs is a tactic that will not ingriate the the twins to future FAs. I know...

    So would the Yankees. Dozier is 4 years younger with 5 years of team control. As players I would say they are roughly equal but Dozier could still get quite a bit better. It would not be...
