    Those fools at baseball reference.com have him at 38 WAR. And he's already 29.Ha! Worst signing ever. I think the Twins should trade him straight up for A-Rod. They should fire Terry Ryan and put...

    Can you please share your fantasy draft with the advanced metrics nerds?

    Right on brother. I have a three time batting champion, good defensive catcher(great at framing) at 512. I should hook you up with my ex, she forgets anything of merit done after an hour.

    I honestly don't see Dozier as Major League ready. Carroll has on base skills and is a better defender. They should give Dozier regular playing time at AAA. Carroll will bat second and probably do...

    He was a part owner. I'm not sure that qualifies as GM. Murky waters. I hope you all understand my initial point. A manager definately has say on who he doesn't want on his team and what type of...

    There have been player managers but, as far as I know, there has never been a manager GM. I will have to go meditate in the desert for forty days to solve that riddle within a conundrum.

    Gardy's input is who he doesn't want on the team (think Lohse) and what type of player (supposed closer etc.) he does want. But he has no say on who gets traded to get that player.
