    I do. IMO the way to build a watchable major league team is to accumulate major league players. Trying to build a major league team by constantly getting rid of major league players in favor of...

    Is it wrong I was ready with my answer before I even clicked on the thread to see why?

    I like how they are terrified of Abreu, yet made no attempt to sign him.

    Another thought...I bet Brian Buscher would listen if the Twins called. Combine his LH bat with Plouffe at third (Plouffe +Buscher = "Bluff") and we'd have an .800 OPS third baseman for the price of...

    He spent the winter working out, including putting on a bunch of muscle and spending three days a week in the cage with Rod Carew. They knew where he was. They're just being dickish. It's not...

    Meh.

    All this talk about attitude is interesting and fun, but it is dwarfed 100-fold by results on the field. Thome was known as one of the nicest guys in the game, but the results of his hitting...

    I agree with Seth. Willingham might be the best DH candidate looking at the roster in a vacuum, but it is never a good thing to look at the roster in a vacuum. The strategy should be to maximize...

    So it is Mauer's fault the rest of the team wasn't as good as the team's Puckett was on? I have never understood that at all, in terms of "value".

    If you could start a team, right now, and you had...

    The Twins appear to have several good pitching prospects in the system. It is critical they develop these prospects into major league assets. They have not shown much success in those areas. They...

    I also measure by the W/L column. Many of the other factors mentioned above are a measure of progress but to me, they don't indicate success.

    I'm waffling on Drew. Maybe the Twins are also. Does having Drew help them be better? I think so, I'm pretty sure. Does drew help them enough for it to "matter". Well, I think a team should always...
