    Two thoughts:
    I think we are all going to be disappointed with the activity at the trade deadline. With comp picks no longer available for the "rental" players, trade returns are going to be very...

    Here, here. It would be a huge bonus for this franchise if he could end up being a quality MLB player whether that is for us or as a trade chip.

    All prospects are suspects until they actually do it. The idea that a player who is inconsistent or can't prove himself at any level of the minors should just be brought to the majors in hopes they...

    Very interesting. I wonder (hope) that a stop in AAA is in order before a recall to the big club. I believe there is a difference between AA and AAA and spending time there does offer something to...

    Its interesting to me that this topic has so much staying power. I am not criticizing this but am thinking it may actually be related to the thinking and emotions that go into these situations. IE...

    If the Twins ever find a real center fielder and Santana takes over at short - they could finally have the deep and flexible bench Gardy wants with Escobar and Nunez swinging the bats decently and...

    I'm so-so with Gardy. I generally think managers are overrated, period, but you can tell he really cares about winning. He is still grumpy after a loss and excited about a win - that rubs off on...

    This. Which makes me think that most of this is inaccurate and what is going on is no different than the growing pains that most young players experience. I also think people are exaggerating the...

    The center field mess has produced many unintended consequences. Santana's lack of playing time at short is one of them, and I think it will end up being a problem. I love Escobar and have since we...

    This is actually long overdue. My opinion was that he (along with Hicks) should have started the season in Rochester. If he ever is going to be acceptable defensively, he needs to play and play a...

    All this speculation reminds of high school where the shy girl is called "stuck up" because she is reluctant to talk to people. LEN3's "reporting" is not something I would use as information to make...

    Where Hicks should be playing is a moot point if the manager has lost confidence and isn't going to let him off the bench. Then, Rochester it is.

    I would rather let him flail in Minnesota and...

    Can we use this as the ultimate proof that the success or failure of player performance is, by far, on the player and not on the coaches? At this point, I am very glad to have received E. Escobar...

    Yep. I really like the idea of dealing the relievers I mentioned plus Corriea. This allows us to slide Deduno back to the pen and add Meyer and May (I'm not sold on Johnson). Now we have a...

    I'm now officially torn on the the Hicks situation. If he goes down, then Santana stays but won't be playing short. I'm at the point now where I think Santana is a more important prospect given the...

    Good catch. Its possible he just gets release to save Gardy from himself. Might be the only way Parms gets two months of ABs to see if he is a part of our future or part of our past.

    Don't Look Now but the Transformation has Begun

    Since he has a chance to solve a huge problem for us, Santana should be playing SS exclusively, whether it is here or Rochester. Why anybody (including Gardy) would think it is a good idea to start...

    I actually really like this idea. He's hopefully going to end up there anyway when Sano comes along. Plouffe in left and Esco at third would have been a far superior defensive alignment. We could...
