  1. "Has been who never was" would be a good...

    "Has been who never was" would be a good description for Arroyo, who is 37 and has never been anything more than a run of the mill pitch to contact guy. Meanwhile, Pelfrey is just 30, and he's coming...
  2. Not an exciting move, but not a bad one....

    Not an exciting move, but not a bad one. Considering that the alternative was Bronson Arroyo, I'm very happy to see Pelfrey return.
  3. He's not terrible. He just doesn't want to get...

    He's not terrible. He just doesn't want to get benched for hitting a "showoff double."
  4. Isn't there a minor league portion of the Rule 5...

    Isn't there a minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft? I'm not an expert with the rules by any means, but I think it would be possible for a team to steal Kepler and put him at AAA instead of in the...
  5. I'm not a pro baseball player, so I obviously...

    I'm not a pro baseball player, so I obviously don't have any inside knowledge, but my guess is that it a lot harder to learn to draw a walk in High A than it is in Low A, especially in the...
  6. While we're talking abou guys who need a...

    While we're talking abou guys who need a promotion, I'm wondering why Kennys Vargas is still at Ft. Myers. He's clearly hitting well in the FSL. His numbers are much better than NB 1B Reynaldo...
  7. My guess is that Walker hasn't been promoted...

    My guess is that Walker hasn't been promoted because the Twins want his plate discopline to improve. He has walked in only 5% of his PAs this year, and he has just a .320 OBP. Sure, he has power, but...
  8. I agree with the fother posters about how great...

    I agree with the fother posters about how great this feature is. Could I offer one suggestion, though? I think it would be great if you always included Buxton and Sano's stat lines in the write ups....
  9. Aside from the glut of 1B/corner OFers on the...

    Aside from the glut of 1B/corner OFers on the Twins roster, I think the reason Colabello hasn't gotten more of a chance is his age. If he were putting up these numbers at age 23, he be the top...
  10. He might not even be the best Twins prospect...

    He might not even be the best Twins prospect right now! Most people rank Byron Buxton ahead of Sano.
  11. That Richardson stolen base came on an odd play....

    That Richardson stolen base came on an odd play. My MiLB app said he stole third, but he was thrown out trying to score on the same play.
  12. Haha, point taken. I admit those still aren't...

    Haha, point taken. I admit those still aren't great numbers, but it's a sign of steady progress that he's improving month to month. Also, Hicks has hit 6 homers, which is about 4 years worth for...
  13. Revere has a .288 OBP for the Phillies so far, so...

    Revere has a .288 OBP for the Phillies so far, so I think the trade isn't working any better for them, either. Regarding Hicks, his stats still look bad, but he has been much better as time for on....
  14. Not good enough to be a #5 starter

    I really think a "solid #5" is too much to hope for. Over the last three years, the only starting pitcher with a WAR lower than Correia's 0.8 is Nick Blackburn (0.5). His home run rate was almost...
  15. Why does Terry Ryan always have to follow a good...

    Why does Terry Ryan always have to follow a good move with an awful one? Last year he signed Josh Willingham... then ruined all that good will by bringing in Jason Marquis.

    Signing Correia...

    This move is so bad it defies words.

    According to Fangraphs, Correia had a WAR of 0.8 over the last three seasons. Only one pitcher (minimum 300 IP) was worse, and that was Nick Blackburn. Third...

    Words cannot express how awful this move is.

    I get that the Twins aren't going to contend in 2013. They need an innings eater. Fine. But why the #*$^ would they sign Correia to two years? Are...

    My dream is for the Twins to sign up a PCL team. The longer they wait to re-sign Rochester, the more my hopes grow.

    I live in Sacramento, CA, where the AAA River Cats play, and if the Twins get a...
