    Reference my earlier comment about pinch hitting for Florimon in the late innings - I said that is virtually impossible with thirteen pitchers on the roster. I think that is a misuse of the entire...

    To me it is whether or not the Twins will score enough runs down the road to justify having such a weak hitter as Florimon in the lineup everyday. And we'll not know that definitively until many...

    Wouldn't the Twins have been far better off signing Solarte even as a six year free agent than casting their lot with Florimon? I sure think so and I find it hard to disagree with my statement when...

    A few years ago the Twins had the Yankees Solarte and somehow gave him up to acquire Florimon, it is all documented at www.baseball-reference.com if anyone cares to look. Why would they have done...

    Apparently just about everyone assumes Santana will be the next regular shortstop and I wonder if that is truly the case. How about Polanco and Goodrum? Do not both of those players fit into the...

    I am amazed that no one else has picked up on this soap opera shuffling of mediocre shortstops, it is so bizarre that the entire situation is too ridiculous to even make it all up. Just check out...

    Would not Polanco and Goodrum be possible shortstop solutions if Santana is not? After all the two of them are both quite young and could develop into fine players or, of course, they could both...

    I heartily disagree that one week's play constitutes "turning the corner", let's wait a bit before we rush to judgment, please.

    spycake questions hitters having sustained success in going the other way, a good question, what is the answer? And how does one research that? I would think many MLB hitters over the years have...

    Many posters are saying the Twins outfield alignment should be Willingham, Hicks and Arcia to start the season - that is fine hitting-wise but it would be a disaster defensively to have both...
  12. Minnesota Twins Roster Projection 3.0

    In just what alternate universe do Kubel and Bartlett have more upside than Colabello/Parmelee and Escorbar/Florimon? Perhaps if it was for spots on the Rochester roster, certainly does not shake...
  13. Having any combination of Kubel, Parmelee and...

    Having any combination of Kubel, Parmelee and Colabello on the final opening day roster is a sure recipe for another 90+ loss season. NONE of the likes of them belong any place close to a MLB...
  14. If Goodrum has a GREAT glove and I am talking...

    If Goodrum has a GREAT glove and I am talking Belanger great then there is no doubt in my mind that he should be the regular shortstop for years to come. How does Goodrum compare to Simmons also?
  15. The shortstop of the future will not necessarily...

    The shortstop of the future will not necessarily be Santana, could be Polanco, Goodrum or Trea Turner. Colabello is what you state - a AAA hitter, no proof that he will hit in the American League.
  16. Halsey Hall - you apparently like 90+ loss...

    Halsey Hall - you apparently like 90+ loss seasons also then as that is what will continue to be the norm with players like Florimon in the everyday lineup. He simply cannot hit, just look at his...

    I doubt that there is anyone that posts here that thinks either Kubel or Bartlett should make the trip North unless it is to Rochester, N.Y. and not the Twin Cities. I never did get management's...

    Wilkin Ramirez in my opinion should step us and claim his rightful spot in Rochester's outfield, he does not belong in the Twins starting lineup. But of course Alex Presley should accompany him on...

    It is said here that the Twins "certainly have the arms to put together a top 5 rotation". How do any of us know for sure that that is the case with the young pitchers, some will be fine, others...

    As mentioned here, saves per se are a complete joke and the rule(s) and/or stats governing them should be changed. For one thing why save your best reliever for say the last inning when your...

    I am 100 percent in agreement with this idea of dumping ALL of the assets and further building the farm system but are most fans on board with this? Plus we get mixed signals from ownership and...

    It appears that 120 pitches in a start is required in Texas, why is that not so in Minnesota? Isn't their standard about 100? No wonder the Twins need so many relief pitchers in any given season.

    As I have said before about Turner vis-a-vis great shortstop defenders. If a college shortstop is truly a GREAT fielder (Marc Belanger like) I do not think MLB teams should give any consideration...

    Isn't it almost implied in MLB circles that Burton and/or Duensing will be shipped thus no need for Twins management to be forward or not regarding the two pitchers? Sure seems to be the case in my...

    If Florimon cannot go wouldn't they simply use Escobar at shortstop for a few games?
