    Runs batted in...

    First, I want to state that I have always been a Joe Mauer fan and always will be. My frustration with him stems from his mental approach at the plate. #3 hitters are supposed to drive in runs. ...

    Bartlett !!!!

    I can't believe Bartlett is on this team. This has to be a "Gardy" thing and is a prime example of why I can't wait to kick Gardy to the curb and install Molitor as the next Twins manager. Really,...

    I love this signing. We're finally making some progress on having a major league "like" pitching staff. It's too much to hope for, but I would love to see Kazmir on a one year deal. We need a LH...
  4. If the Twins will give the type of contracts they...

    If the Twins will give the type of contracts they have to the Corriea's and Pelfry's of the world, they should jump at the chance to sign Hughes to a 2/16m contract. If we like what we see, extend...
  5. Unless the Twins kick the tires on something like...

    Unless the Twins kick the tires on something like this we have no idea what it would take. As long as Buxton, Sano Meyer are no part of it, it needs to be considered. Price is a true #1. He's still...
  6. Not high on Arroyo, never really have been. I'd...

    Not high on Arroyo, never really have been. I'd rather see the Twins target Kazmir and Hughes. (My pipe dream is Tanaka , but...it will never happen). I've got no problem with 3 year contracts for...
  7. It's true, Kazmir dominated the Twins last year. ...

    It's true, Kazmir dominated the Twins last year. But I still want him. He's a good fit, and yes, whoever gets him him will have to pay at least 10-mil per year, maybe as much as 12-mil for 2 or 3...

    I for one would gladly take a "2-year rental" of Shark. However, if he performed, I'd make every effort to sign him longer term. AussieTwin's list is a good one, but I think "Shark" would be near...
  9. This is the right move. It was bound to happen...

    This is the right move. It was bound to happen sometime and now it's sooner rather than later. A vet catcher (preferably one that hits LH) would be a perfect bridge for Pinto and his continued...

    Thrylos...Great article. This is why we go to Twins Daily, to read a well thought out, well written piece about our favorite baseball team and how they could become fun to watch again (someday). We...

    My answer to Shane's question would be Chuck Knoblach.

    I'm sure Terry Ryan (or the Pohlads) don't read any of this stuff. But really, you guys are the backbone of Twins fans and to a man, NONE of you have any faith in Terry Ryan. And I agree with you...
  13. After last season's major disappointment, I'll...

    After last season's major disappointment, I'll believe it when I see it when it comes to Terry Ryan and Dave St. Peter & Co. E. Santana makes waaay too much sense and fits waaay to well into the...

    I agree 100% with MyHouseIsYourHouse: The best targets are in order:
    Tanaka: Young, good stuff, could be a #1. Expensive, YES. But worth it.
    Kazmir: He's 30. He looks like he's made it back. ...
  15. develop starting pitching:

    There is no doubt that developing your own starting pitching is the best model. It's cheaper and provides stability going forward. But when your starting pitching has fallen to the depths the Twins...

    Val...just a couple rebuttal points: Oliver and Greenwell never won a Gold Glove. Oliver and Greenwell couldn't steal bases. Oliver won a World Series, but in 1971 the Pirates were Clemente &...
  17. Shane, I think you're spot on with your guess...

    Shane, I think you're spot on with your guess that the free agent pitcher is B. Webb. He fits the profile. Some years ago he had one of the best power sinkers in MLB. Injuries have affected his...

    I agree Mauer should hit 2nd. As a #3 he has never knocked in 100 runs. Even in his MVP year with 28 HR's he didn't knock in 100. He should bat 2nd. If Maestro has to start the season in CF, you...

    The Twins rhetoric and their actions don't jibe. I have no problem NOT over-paying for mediocrity, IF you pay for QUALITY. However, the Twins claim no one of quality wants to take their money...

    Great HAL-9000 reference Brock! Although S.O.V. Dave can be annoying at times, that's no different than the rest of us. Plus, he's made 1,962 posts and I just reached 40! I bow to his...

    Very interesting. With his stuff, he could be solid in the N.L. With his head, the Pirates may have just tossed $14-mil out the window...

    Great signing. We should all say the rosary every day in hopes of keeping him healthy.
