    Could have chosen a couple other similar responses, but this encapsulated things pretty well.

    The Burton move was a great one, the kind of move the Twins have been known for over the years. (They...

    WOW!

    Honestly, great article Nick! You have encapsulated many thoughts I myself have had, and even put down in posts just tonight. I really, really hate to repeat myself, but your comments here...

    While not thrilled by the signing, or impressed by it, I got it. A very low risk and inexpensive veteran arm with a good track record who might help out. I admit to still being surprised when he was...

    Great post! And I'm 100% in agreement.

    Think about 2011 for a moment. That season was an anomaly. The Twins were coming off a division championship and a 95 win season. They lost some quality arms...

    And you could be right Nick. But I'm not really all that surprised. Consider some other moves the Twins have made this season. Bartlett "retired", but honestly, I think it's clear the Twins would...

    Anything you guys? I'd really like to hear your thoughts on where we're sitting now, and what we think 2015 and on will bring here. I confess to being intrigued and excited about the future of our...

    Jokin, you and I often share the same or similar viewpoints, but I'm going to disagree with you on this one.

    I am taking age completely out of the equation as there are simply WAY TOO MANY...

    Jim, the proposed call up of Meyer to potentially pitch out of the pen is based, obviously, on his innings limit/concern. I don't believe this scenario stunts his growth at all. It's by no means a...

    This. Absolutely.

    Though I disagree with trading Fien. Still young 30, not expensive, a real find and doing a great job.

    I still believe May would already be up, stopping the Johnson/Pino train...

    Agreed!

    There also a couple other relief arms not mentioned that we could include here. I do think Sano and Rosario potentially arriving early is a bit ambitious, but your point is well taken.

    I was a bit unsure of his selection, despite his athletic pedigree, simply because the scouting reports I read him anywhere from 50-65 at all skill levels. Now while those are all above average, I...

    And I don't necessarily disagree with you on this point. I don't think Pinto is as bad defensively as some worry. I think he played pretty well to close out 2013, and didn't seem to play poorly in ST...

    [QUOTE=JB_Iowa;258576]





    This continues to raise my question about whether you can totally "measure" the effect of the catcher. How much influence did Suzuki have over Kris Johnson last...

    This list is pure crap!

    I've heard from a good source, a former teammate's cousin's roommate friend that Brad Radke is dominating in his slow pitch church league.

    How could you possibly leave...
  16. Time to examine the infield and its future

    We've taken time in recent weeks to look at the current state, the rest of the season, and projections toward 2015, in regard to the rotation, the bullpen and the outfield. There have been widely...

    Surprisingly, considering where we thought we were a couple seasons ago, the biggest hole in the minors right now might be in the OF. Now, I'm not saying we are destitute there, but we are painfully...

    Interesting.

    I am on record for two things relative here. One is that I believe Suzuki has real value for next season, possibly beyond, even with expected offensive regression. He's a quality C,...

    Just to share and echo many sentiments here in my own words and opinions.

    No, absolutely no, Dozier is not a tradeable asset. Yes, if someone offers you a tremendous return you always listen. You...

    Snakebit? Somebody ticked off a Zoltar machine?

    If this is nothing more than a sore plunking, and I sure hope it is, you have to feel a couple games missed shouldn't make him gather rust with the...

    Optimistic proposition and following question.

    Despite possibly shaking off some initial rust, probably, let's assume the Santana of the second half is the same Santana, more or less, that he has...

    If they could pull that off, I'd be both pleased and impressed. Might dance a jig if they pulled off the 10-3.

    Im not even worried at contention realistically. I'm just thinking healthy, working...

    I guess I look at the C position from a more standard perspective. I look for a guy who handles the staff, catches the ball and sets up well. You also hope he can throw well, but especially in...

    Once again, just to be clearance, I think we're finding some common ground. I don't know Morales' clubhouse influence. Could be great! I just don't know at this point. But, his production could not...

    Yes, as, it might be a patch. Might indeed be nothing more than that.

    Not sure I agree with 2017 as a target date though. The majority of the players on this team will be intact through 2015 and...
