Max has not had a good April. The Fort Myers LF has struggled mightily at the plate to start the season. Max is 3 for 27 (.111) to start the young season and has done little offensively since the 2...
You could also spin that start the other way. If not for horrendously bad Perkins outing (and a bad Plouffe throw) they're 2-1 coming out of Chicago. If Mike Pelfrey doesn't forget how to pitch in...

I don't see it happening. First, because the Red Sox likely won't part with the prospects the Twins want (need) for a stop gap solution like Dozier. Additionally, the Twins have been sorely missing a...
No. I want to see him put up solid numbers in consecutive years before offering him any long term deal. Plus, with him being under team control for the next 5 seasons, it may be in their best...
I've been able to talk myself into not panicking over Nolasco. I've convinced myself that Hughes will have more outings like innings 2-5 yesterday (rather than the 1st inning) as the season...

How many starts did the Twins give Jason Marquis in 2012 - 7 or so? I'd put the leash at that point for Pelfrey. If he continues to turn out starts like the first two, I think the Twins make a move 5...
IF the pitching staff ends the year with another season of league high ERA, then MAYBE I could see Rick Anderson getting the axe.
I just don't see Gardy getting canned before the prospects take...
We're only 4 games into the Miracle's season so the numbers don't reflect too much right now; none the less, here's Kepler's stat line from the first 4 games:
All I learned from yesterday's game was that Direct TV makes a quality remote, as mine was rather viciously spiked into the floor after Deduno uncorked the game losing pitch.
Other than that, I'd...

This was the biggest reason for me signing up for Direct TV. There were no cable options for getting Fox Sports North, yet I couldn't watch the games online as I was in the "home market". Thanks...
Oswaldo Arcia. I like my players to have a little energy (life / passion) at the plate. Nothing drives me crazy like a player looking a strike three then just slowly walking back to the dugout with...

Hicks has a great deal of talent. It appeared in (all too infrequent) flashes in 2013 - but you could see the potential there. Hopefully after taking his lumps last year, he's ready to adjust and...
The craziest part is that Cabrera's monster deal likely means the Tigers won't be able to resign Max Scherzer in the coming offseason. Scherzer would look good in a Twins uniform...

I hope this means they're on the cusp of another move. Be it a waiver claim or a trade. If they did this to facilitate keeping Bartlett on the roster (and they plan to use him as the 4th OF)...
Hoffman was a member of the Tigers farm system, I believe. The Twins signed him as a minor league free agent in December.
What a difference a year makes. Best of luck in Pittsburgh, Vance.
Chris Herrmann being optioned was the surprise for me. With all of Gardy's talk about flexibility and having a versatile bench, I thought Herrmann was a sure bet to make the team.
I've given up...

Will they be a good team? No, I don't believe they will. However, that doesn't mean they will be the worst team of the last four years. The rotation has improved from AAAA filler to quality starters....
I hope he clears, but I doubt he will. The Blue Jays make a living claiming all sorts of players on waivers, this feels like another one they'd take a crack at.
It's too bad he never worked out...

"Asked", "Pushed" same thing. ;)
I like the move. Gibson deserves to be a starter and I think Deduno can be quite good out of the 'pen.

Arizona Diamondbacks - 80.5 Over
Atlanta Braves - 87.5 Under
Baltimore Orioles - 80.5 Over
Boston Red Sox - 87.5 Under
Chicago Cubs - - 69.5 Under
Chicago White Sox - 75.5 Under
I like the trade from both sides.
The Nationals were (are) close to contention and needed a reliable CF. They dealt from a position of strength (starting pitching) to acquire the piece they...

If he's healthy and can contribute - awesome. If he's not healthy or simply isn't better than one of the other bullpen options - oh well. It's a minor league deal, and not at all a risk for the Twins...
