    The only reason the Twins should EVER bunt is 1....

    The only reason the Twins should EVER bunt is 1. traditional bunting situation, and 2. Florimon is up, and pinch-hitting isn't an option (e.g. the stud hitter who would win the game for you is your...
  2. Yes, it's not like a guy can hit well over a...

    Yes, it's not like a guy can hit well over a 10-day stretch or that this particular guy is old for his league. ;-)
  3. First, Kubel did not turn down a major league...

    First, Kubel did not turn down a major league offer to sign a minor league offer with the Twins. Show me one player who has done that, and I'll show the most absolute exception to the rule to ever...
  4. This is a depth the Twins haven't seen for quite...

    This is a depth the Twins haven't seen for quite a while. Unfortunately, it's very low-quality depth, but the first step is to have a choice, so that's progress. My biggest fears with this team are...

    Trea Turner looks to stay at shortstop. I would be shocked if the Twins passed on him. Having trouble remembering the last top ten college middle infielder to succeed, though (or to even be top ten...

    First, it's really, really sad when you're constantly cheering against your GM's rumored moves. Second, Bonnes, my friend, stop with the "money to burn" thing. All money matters. Just because...

    Well, Terry Ryan, for one, would do something like this from the other side (unfortunately) and Bill Smith would have given up more. So maybe you need to correct your statement about GMs to exclude...

    Check out his stats versus teams other than the Twins. They're not good, as the Twins were 20% of his starts.

    Hrbek, but only because we really only got a 4.5 year good (great!) stretch from Morneau. Morneau should have been better than Hrbek, and I have only a little doubt he would have been. Morneau at...

    Larsen is the one rookie-ball hitter I've noticed stats-wise. Not to be a downer, and perhaps this is obvious, but this type of guy, with all his production, is still extremely unlikely to be...

    He'll get a start for Ft. Myers then maybe one for NB. Then the AFL.

    Um, yeah, Kepler's a no-brainer. Does the same hold true for Sano? They were signed the same year, but not really, as Kepler signed at the regular time and Sano signed late, if you remember.

    I don't see that as an issue here. While the Twins do stupid things in the name of "image," they aren't going to mess this up to make a few bucks.

    I keep reading that Hicks may not hit. I don't think that's going to be an issue. He's been rushed, but I'd think he'd hit better next year than Clete Thomas is hitting this year. Eventually he'll...

    The question is simply: is Sano good enough that you want to control him through 2020 instead of just 2019?

    It's not like he won't learn something in AAA. It will be the first time he...

    There's essentially nothing different between Hicks and Thomas this year. Neither should be in the big leagues. I'm amazed that it seems to be unrecognized that Thomas sucks incredibly.

    I hope nobody tells Gonsalves that the Twins passed on him three times.
  18. Yeah, I'm disappointed Meyer hasn't had a...

    Yeah, I'm disappointed Meyer hasn't had a strikeout in two months, too, but geez, at least understand why. There should be a test prior to logging on.

    And the first question is if you know how to...

    How dare you suggest a platoon!

    Part of what makes Rosario a top prospect is his position, but his bat still projects better than what the Twins are throwing out there (Thomas?) after ditching...

    Yes, sorry, Kepler is the clear leader for future 1B. Also, Plouffe does have some value right now. NY would love him. Dozier I'm suggesting trading if he gets off to a good half-season next year,...

    Shaping the Twins infield going forward

    I'm bringing up this subject because of something that's been bothering me. The Twins best infielder this year is Brian Dozier. He's entering his prime years, and we can expect that he'll be better...

    Romero doesn't have to be a big-league player. He can stop-gap the rest of the year, and the Twins can find someone on a one-year contract next year. Unless you're going to do a straight platoon...

    Get what you can now. This season is lost. To re-sign him, you will have to commit to multiple years, and NOTHING Pelfrey has ever done makes him worth multiple years. Sorry, folks, we just let a...

    I think Andrew Albers will be pitching for the Twins yet this season. I assume he's either on the 40 or needs to be placed there next year, so that's not an impediment (there are many candidates for...
