Are we sure Dunn wouldn't still be thrown out if he bunted?

The asking price should have been high, you just don't trade a 30 HR guy for beans. Also I am glad the Span asking was "more pricey", give me that Meyer trade 7 days out of 7.
I know opinions on...
He is batting like a very different player, so something is up.

I appreciate the enthusiasm. I really do. But no. No pretty much across the board.
Hughes is still young, a former top 100 prospect who had #2 starter potential "ace" ability. His career has been...

Even players we perceive as having little or no value can end up helping. At the time Liriano had 'no value' and now we have Escobar. At the time Morneau had 'no value', and to Pittsburg he was of...

Longtime lurker, but I had to register to respond to this…Trading Hughes would be detrimental and I think shortsighted (on the same level as trading JJ Hardy for Jim Hoey) for a team that's close to...

I would also point out that trading a guy like Morales right now proves that fans don't always understand the human aspect of player development. Let's be honest, if you are a free agent, and you...

I think building the foundation of the team is essential. The Twins could try to trade for Price, for instance, but it doesn't solve all the problems at once.
Also, if the Twins are looking to...
I like Dozier right where he is. His base running is improving so you want him near the top, but he has some pop so that a first inning HR might put you up 2-0 instead of 1-0, which is huge, like...
If you want to move Mauer down in the lineup, sure I can understand where you are coming from a bit. However moving him down isn't going to "take the pressure" off of him or whatever. Mauer is a...
I would go with:
Santana (for as long as he keeps this up)
Dozier batting behind Mauer is going to be the ideal situation. And it is actually quite good to have the best homerun...
Deduno needs to be replaced.
He was a decent fallback option for Pelfrey to keep the kids in the minors long enough to delay their service clocks, but that's no longer an issue and the Twins have...
I think there were initial concerns, as he doesn't quite fit 'the picture' of today's 6'3+" 220+ thoroughbred pitchers.
I kinda figured he'd 'compete' his way up the ladder at a much slower...
If Gardy says the reason Correia is staying in the rotation is the money he's making, it almost sounds like he'd make the move if he could but the FO is forcing him to keep running out Correia.
I get that Gardy isn't going to throw Correia under the bus and I don't think I'd want him to (not that I agree with his entire take - but I don't think he should say "Correia sucks, get me someone...

I'd feel better if Gardy said "interestingly, if you trust fip, Correia has been extremely unlucky this year." That would mean that (a) the decision to keep starting him was being made for baseball...
I think it says he read the newspaper. linking to a newspaper would be an interesting trick.

I'll be honest, I kinda want Touki too. More of a risk, so I don't really expect it, but it would definitely put a smile on my face. Lots of guys have 95+ fastballs, give me somebody with a monster...
If he remains as dominating as his last start or close to it for several starts he'll have to get promoted. But I am not pushing the issue until the last month of the season. We have a lot of...
Remember how negative posters were when they drafted him?
You're either a lawyer or Jon Stewart :)
E. Tim Keefe in 1880, although he only pitched 105 innings, so I'll go with the #2 guy there. One Pedro Martinez.
Pedro's opponent batting line is...
13 strike outs tonight, no walks and one hit in a complete game. Jeepers.
Last 5 starts:
0.89 WHIP (18H, 10BB)
so next year, if no one comes up, I can criticize the farm system? The timeline keeps moving back a year..
As for Pinto, he never plays, so not sure what value he has added yet. Hicks can't hit....
I think I agree with you here. Is the 5th pick going to be much better than say the 15th? They all seem pretty equal or have fairly equal upside and downside. I guess it depends in what you value...
