    That's a hell of a dip he's got in his lip for that picture. Twins might wanna chat with him about that.

    Forget the dingers, where are the doubles? That's my bigger concern. (For Mauer)

    I think you meant central Minnesota, not way up north. Geography tells me Star Lake is central Minnesota, and Minneapolis is in the southern third of Minnesota. (I grew up on the Iron Range and take...

    You missed a key word from the quote: "vocal" leadership. Everyone knows Mauer isn't a vocal guy. Doesn't mean he isn't a leader.

    No surgery is 100% safe or 100% effective. You don't open up bodies and slice and dice unless you absolutely have to. You'd hate to hear of a surgery go wrong when it may not have been 100% necessary...

    Um, what? Please do explain. I wasn't aware Kirby scored all the teams' runs with solo homeruns to win the World Series.

    The highlighted pieces of this quote are, by definition, a...

    Honest question: Will people hate on Buxton if his power peaks in the teens for homeruns like they did/do for Mauer? We all know that leading the league in average, OBP, and Gold Glove defense...

    I know the play you're talking about it and popped into my head when thinking about overrated Jeter. He catches a foul ball, takes about 6 more full strides, then dives into the stands. And of course...

    I think it's more about budgets and revenue flows....There's just simply no way the Twins can compete with the Uber-markets like New York and LA. Those teams get more in their TV deals than the Twins...

    He got an additional $714K per year, not exactly a hefty raise (in ridiculous baseball money terms). It's basically an extra $5 million thrown in from the Dodgers for not having to risk 10 years on...

    The Dodgers have TV money coming out of their ears. This contract could be paid for 100% multiple times over even if the Dodgers decided to LOWER ticket prices. Yes ticket prices have gone up, but...

    How can they ban Bonds, Clemens, McGwire, etc when MLB didn't even test for steroids when they played? I'm not saying they didn't use steroids, of course they did. But the league didn't have any way...

    It amazes me how many players are guilty until proven innocent. I really hope none of these writers ever get called for jury duty.

    anyone know what a second round draft pick is worth? For example, I believe I've read that a 2nd rounder in the NHL has about a 25% chance of turning into a player that plays at least 82 games (1...

    The team has bigger problems if they allow the manager to trot him out there for 150 games if he has a season like last year. Just because you sign a guy to a deal (MINOR LEAGUE DEAL) doesn't mean...

    Smart move. It's a huge risk (potential massive injury) play with pretty low reward (one run), especially considering players are now a $10M+/year investment. How does the game of baseball benefit if...

    Makes sense to me. Helps the team now, and buys time for Pinto to develop more. And it's only $10 M a year. The Twins will still have truckloads of cash to put towards pitching

    Fun Fact: Joe "People call me nothing but a singles hitter" Mauer outslugged Fielder last year .476 to .457

    Granted, it wasn't Fielder's best year by any means, but still.

    Don't kid yourself. All we need is Buxton covering the entire outfield and 2 extra guys stacking the infield.
