    Yes. You sell high. Billy Beane, etc...or anybody in anything, you sell high. And the thing is, he's a FA at the end of the year. Handle him right and you can go back after him after the year (if he...

    The market is setting up perfectly for the Twins to trade Suzuki. I hope they don't fool themselves into thinking that a) they're a playoff factor and b) Suzuki will continue to hit way above his...

    I'd need to be even more blown away than that to trade Dozier. All the chatter to trade him just doesn't make any sense at all.

    He's pretty darn close to establishing himself as a top 10 2B, if...

    That's why the placeholders are needed until the true talent is ready. People are getting hung up on the ages of the placeholders. You could've artificially dropped the age of the major league...

    This meme is really getting ridiculous. Gardy has had a bunch of young rotations and plays lots of young players in key situations. Cripes, down the stretch in 06, he was relying on Boof and...

    Epstien has a nice roster. Still losing. They will be losing more as they dealt 2 of their top starters.
    The ballplayers over 30 likely to be with the club next year are Nolasco, Perkins and Mauer....

    Unless they somehow get back to .500 before 7/31, Willingham and Morales should absolutely be traded. So should Corriea and Burton if they have any value. Suzuki should either be traded or signed to...

    Some have commented on this thread and the decision to close it.

    Read through this thread again and try to do so objectively. I just read it for the first time and the amount of hand-wringing...

    Honestly, this debate is like the Kyle Gibson paradox from last year. :banghead:

    Premise (1):Kyle Gibson succeeds at the ML level immediately
    Conclusion: The Twins waited to long to promote...

    Who said Polanco stays to play SS?

    According to a fly on the wall, this is happening in Minneapolis right now:

    Gardy: Can the kid play center?
    All: No, he's never played center.
    Gardy. Ok,...

    Here's what I know: the calf injury isn't serious.

    The rest is just my opinions. I don't understand why "financial considerations" would have anything to do with it. The Twins kept Gibson down...

    Baseball in the Big A

    As a SoCal transplant, I savor every opportunity to see my beloved nine when they come to town, so I plan to be at all three games this week. While most sports venues in California are great game...

    Hicks should have started the year in AAA. If he's turned the corner, it will show in AAA.

    Ok...here I go.

    I am not an apologist. Just a realist.

    I think a manager or coach, maybe more so in baseball than some sports, is treated much like a QB in football. When the team wins, the QB...
  16. How much credit does Anderson get for Hughes

    Most of us have been hard on Anderson and for good reason. Most of the Twins' starters have underperformed in the past 3+ seasons and the rotation has been dreadful.

    With that said, how much...

    Nice game today though. Single, double, walk so far.

    Nice to see a typical Mauer game. I hope he can string several together.

    Heck, for 3M I'd change my name to anything the Payer chose for me.

    My preference would be to have an obscenity and a rare fruit included in this name. The only names that would make me a little...

    I am on the "wait" bandwagon. And I'm there for a few reasons.

    One, Correia is indeed projecting better/decling numbers for one simple reason, he's pitching better. And was pointed out previously,...

    Super Two, Working on secondary pitches and FB command, AAA all star game, July Futures Game in MN, and trade deadline - all possible reasons to delay until mid-July or later.

    It was a spectacular catch... Why not enjoy it and leave it at that? To my knowledge, nobody has said his defense warrants a demotion. It's mostly people saying his defense has been inconsistent,...

    To echo Jokin....THIS.

    I ran through Hicks' milb stats and compared them to Gomez and Hunter both to satisfy my own curiosity. While Hicks has not completed his second year in ML ball, I also...

    I'm sure there will be another AAAA CF hit waivers again soon.

    Of course the way things are going, the Twins would likely put themselves in the position that they'd have to DFA Fuld to get him.

    Jesus Christ, Chief. You can never have too much pitching.

    (before anyone gets insulted, this is a riff on a quote from Terry Ryan in an interview with John in 2012)
