    Bert probably would have had TJ surgery in 1982 had the procedure been as common place as it is today.

    Still I agree that the extra starter probably comes at the expense of a bench player and...

    Yes, it does tell us it's a case of bad luck. It also tells us that that the ER is a poor indicator of whether the save will be converted. If the number of games you are going to lose with Kimbrel,...

    The issue with this stat is that we are testing for the effect without knowing the cause. We can get results, but they don't tell us why they occur. We can only presume the answer is "because of the...

    So I should assume the bit about Garver dropping bombs was a bit more colorful before the radio edit?

    That is only an assumption and you'd need another metric even to get results for that premise.

    The bottom line is, we can only assume that the catcher was the influencer in the umpire's decision,...

    Well if biases are to be taken out of the equation, Pitch Framing should be irrelevant. It relies on the belief that catchers dictate what the umpire is going to call 100% of the time and doens't...

    I wonder why they waited four days to get an x-ray?

    Ft. Myers does have a lot of old people I guess. Maybe that's just how long he had to sit in the waiting room at the walk-in clinic?

    Less obstructed playing time for younger players like Parmelee, Arcia, Santana, Pinto or Vargas and a free 40-man spot to add someone like Meyer or Rosario.

    But you're missing the point. Kimbrel is clearly an elite pitcher. However he is inserted into a position where his eliteness has little effect on the game. His eliteness isn't going to produce...

    I might suggest your homone levels may be quite a bit different than that of a professional athlete. Even the ones that don't get them artificially.

    I like Perk but would move him for a good package. Closers should be expendable and offered to any sucker who will pay for them. They are simply manufactured out of the "next man up" philosophy....

    I'll only be upset if they again trade a vet who takes up one 40 man spot (and who would be off of it as a free agent come November) for two AAAA guys who both require 40 man spots.

    This happened...

    I think the majority of the time people blame the person responsible for putting these pitchers on the roster.

    Well, of course and Anderson.

    Yeah, we can't play the hindsight game with players but we can play it with philosophy, and with the dearth of front line arms in the system in 2010, the Twins absolutely should have been looking for...

    And how better to prepare the fans who will be upset about a trade, than to have something like this leak. Good news in my book as a trade looks very likely. The Twins are going to have so much...

    He did screw the Twins, which may be a reason the team didn't really deal with him again for about 12 years.

    Still, it was a provision in the CBA and if the client was aware of it, the front...

    I'd think that would do the opposite. Being able to say you're going to college is the best leverage these players have. Also, if MLB required a decleration, they could then require further...

    I agree that they do, I just don't agree that they should. 25-year-old rookie pitchers shouldn't be the norm when the guys are top 100 prospects. There's nothing wrong with a little stress for a...

    That being said, I don't believe they need to be completely "ready" to be called up. It seems that the Twins require...

    The Twins do seem to have a knack for building a pretty decent, even if underwhelming bullpen. However there has been a lot of luck involved. Afterall, the only reason Perkins, Duensing, Swarzak,...
