    I thought the Twins made a mistake extending him. They had him under team control for 2013.

    I think the versatility thing is key. Escobar has a major league future as a utility player, while Florimon is a shortstop and shortstop only. If Florimon is optioned, what do the Twins do with...

    If Gibson got the correct calls by the umpires, his line would look a lot different. He is hitting the edges great. He just is the victim of bad umpiring, at this point.

    Nunez was used in RF today.

    I hope it is a sign the Twins view him as a utility player and not a regular shortstop. It may be a role he can play on a winning team.

    What does Alex Presley have to do with any of this? If you're suggesting that I was somehow in favor of cutting Presley, you're barking up the wrong tree. Personally, I think Presley and Mastroianni...

    And my point is that I don't really care about the trade. I've never seen either player actually play baseball.

    The Twins obviously didn't like Sulbaran for whatever reason. They see something in...

    I may be repeating what someone else has said but, maybe, just maybe, Mauer knows what he's doing. Maybe he's part of that small 99.9% group of players that are taught to look for a particular type...

    Can I add a reason to like Mauer? He chose baseball over football. (Yeah, baseball offered the more immediate payday, but he still made the choice.)

    Not only that, from ages 14-30 at least, he...

    I believe this is far less frequent that you imply. It is very difficult to perfect pitch recognition and swing mechanics -- not unlike pitcher mechanics, really. I might guess too that "great...

    I was going to jump in on this very issue, but Bombo said it better with the hard data. On the current Twins roster, Mauer's game really dictates that he should be leading off, and batting 2nd with...

    Was Rod Carew a great hitter?

    I really don't understand why we don't accept that not making an out is the key to offense.

    Yeah, some hitters don't make outs AND hit homers. They're rare.

    I think talent outweighs leadership almost all the time, especially in baseball. 95% of this game is batter versus pitcher, man versus man. Mauer could give a great Herb Brooks like speech to Pedro...
