    I think there was plenty of skepticism surrounding Burton last year, maybe the trade demands weren't widespread because as other posters have noted he had little trade value anyway. I was calling...
  2. I find everyone of Nick's points surprising,...

    I find everyone of Nick's points surprising, except Pelfrey, not sure why the Twins felt they needed to give him another shot. What's most surprising is the team being in the top 10 in runs scored...

    Maybe if he'd lob in a few more watermelons per inning (pitch to contact) he could make it into the good ol boys club. It's like the plan the past 3 seasons has been to wait for the future and hope...

    Maybe when there are viable alternatives at 2B and 3B but probably not.

    I've been down on the Twins all off season but have to say that they've actually been enjoyable to watch so far. Apparently ignoring your glaring lack of offensive talent isn't such a bad strategy...

    What's the deal w/ Ameries Minier (or whatever)? I thought he was supposed to be a stud at some point, or did I just make that up?

    Even weak hitting lineups will string together hits from time to time and when they do it'd be nice to see the bullpen, the Twins supposed strength, take care of business because they might not see...

    Lumping Mauer in w/ those other bums is a bit blasphemous. I really hope they don't use Deduno in Swarzek's role last year, pitching in blowout loses, his stuff is too good to waste in those...

    While this sentiment makes a lot of sense as a fan it tends to remind me of my perception of many players on the Twins roster. Despite 3 horrible seasons we constantly hear about how bad players...

    Losing Presley might not be a big deal but that could be said for about 80% of the roster. Last year he was our best CF at the end of the season and everyone is always posting about how meaningless...

    So after Antony blasts a bunch of guys for not earning spots they grant spots to Bartlett and Kubel, who've underperformed as much, if not more, as anybody. Sure the guys they waived haven't been...

    Twins waived Parmelee and Presley (claimed by Astros). Looks like Bartlett might actually make this team. Genius...

    Put me in camp 2 and not a believer in the difference between the 50th best player in the major leagues and 300th best player is extremely slight theory. At any rate, for $8 a beer you should be...

    Last year was really the only bad year Parmelee had in the organization. In 2012 he was sent down because he wasn't getting enough playing time and he raked in AAA. Not saying he won't flame out...

    I don't see what Kubel (or Bartlett even more so) brings to a team that is in full scale rebuilding mode. Even if they're "proven" and provide "veteran presence," there's no benefit to playing them...

    mlbtraderumors is saying Kubel and Escobar are in and Bartlett is out. Not sure what that means for Parms and Calabello. Parmelee is a former 1st rounder w/ a nice minor league resume, I'd hate to...

    Like that Gibson made it, tough to see Deduno get snubbed though. His stats over the past 2 seasons suggest he should crack this starting 5 easily plus his stuff just looks nasty, but he doesn't...

    One bad thing about having a bad team is that you don't have many valuable trade chips. Would've been nice to see at least one offensive upgrade via free agency. Last year was their worst offensive...

    Florimon's D is very good but I think elite is using the term a bit loosely. I've never heard his name in a national conversation about the best defensive players in the game and I view he and...

    If the Twins wanted to sign Garza or Ervin Santana I'd be all for it, Saunders and Johan Santana...not so much. Still not terribly optimistic about this staff though, it'll be hard to throw fewer...

    I like the idea of keeping the guys without options and spot starting several guys in the 5th rotation slot as well as seeing how those same guys come out of the pen. Come trade deadline take...
