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...
Gardy just set a new personal-best record for resorting to his safety zone of 3 catchers and 13 pitchers
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...

It would be some crazy irony if Bartlett made this roster because of his "veteran-ness"....

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...

I really want the position players to read:
I always supported Hendricks and wanted him to succeed. Back in the early 1980's I was part of a Marine Corps Expeditionary Force and we were practicing Desert Storm before there was Desert Storm....

Agreed. Every organization I've been in my entire life--professional, personal, recreational--has been positively or negatively affected by leadership and "chemistry." I doubt professional baseball...

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...
Not sure whether any one has been following it, but things have been getting pretty messy in Venezuela, and it looks like the country is in the middle of a democracy struggle (like some places in EU...

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'd consider 75 or more wins to be progress. I'd...
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...

Not sure there is much too it, but Gardy did mention in one of this interviews around Twinsfest, something to the effect of wanting to change the attitude of the club. I think he said "bring in...

TR: We're putting the band back together.
Johan Santana: Forget it. No way
Gardy: We're on a mission from God.

What assurances do I have that the gut feelings have been objectively eliminated from these metrics? Each metric produces varying results because they weigh different aspects of different...

Talked with Sano this morning and asked about the elbow. It's good, no pain, and he started throwing today and will throw again tommorrow. So things are looking up.
