    I would think that Herrmann's greatest value would be his ability to catch, but even in AAA this year he's been more of an outfielder.

    I get that there's some value in positional flexibility, but...

    After hearing Dozier and Perkins recently talk about how the Twins are much improved and have a real shot, it's a splash of cold water in the face. Kind of refreshing.

    We've been waiting for Sano to come up and force the Twins' hand on this, but...

    I expect Plouffe to be signed to a new contract and Sano moved to left field.

    IMO, if you're going to sign Suzuki again (and it's going to take at least a two-year commitment), you're pretty much waving the white flag on Pinto ever being the catcher and you might as well trade...

    The Twins were lucky to be able to pick up Fuld.

    The consternation over losing Presley and Mastroianni had more to do with the Twins deciding to marry Aaron Hicks (and Jason Bartlett) as their...

    I think the fan base was jaded by the Livan Hernandez, Sidney Ponson, and Ramon Ortiz signings and KC reminded them of those guys who were brought in as back-of-the-rotation "innings-eaters."

    KC...

    I think there's a pretty good chance that Suzuki, after the season he's having, wouldn't want to take an extension mid-season from the Twins when he could sign with a real contender in the offseason....

    The market is setting up perfectly for the Twins to trade Suzuki. I hope they don't fool themselves into thinking that a) they're a playoff factor and b) Suzuki will continue to hit way above his...

    Lot of good points being made here, and not to be a drip, but I've got to dig back several pages for any mention of Worley.

    If Cuddyer represents the best way to upgrade the lineup, go ahead and sign him.

    What I don't want is for the Twins to sign him primarily for sentimental reasons. One of my biggest pet peeves...

    Herrmann as CF insurance? Has he even played that in the minors?

    I don't see the point when you could just throw Plouffe or Arcia out there...

    I'm not sure how much credit you can give to Ryan for drafting well the last couple years. The Rays had a lot of good young players coming up for a while, talent they never would have had the chance...

    Some of them (us) were already going berserk over the guy who was playing first and batting third. What was his name again? Wally Pipp?

    I don't know, according to Pythagorean W/L, the Twins are exactly as lucky as they should be.

    Context is important... as a Twins fan, when something like this happens, they appear to be unlucky if...

    Parms has been a nice surprise since being removed from the 40-man and reestablishing himself in AAA, but then again Chris Colabello was hitting real well for a minute there, too.

    We could trade...

    Every time the Twins have a runner in a run-down I expect them to botch it. They haven't been particularly good at executing those for a long time.

    I would have liked to see Gibson come back out for the ninth after 95 pitches.

    I don't think it's fair to Florimon to set him up to fail, either.

    Yeah... when Polanco pinch-hit for him I couldn't wrap my head around why P-Flo was starting in the first place.

    Yeah... he pulled up lame halfway between first and second. He looked fine going to first.

    Maybe someone in the medical field can explain how one can get a bone bruise from running. I thought...

    Kris Johnson?

    If they call up May, can he still play in the futures game?

    Pinto's caught Meyer's last two games. Bad game calling in play?

    Also... Meyer's getting clubbed around by lefty hitters. Could be a result of tinkering with the changeup.

    I'm finding it kind of weird that, now that Mauer isn't the catcher, Gardy has no problem letting his #1 catcher catch a day game after a night game.

    I wonder if either Mauer was asking for more...

    I disagree with not demoting him.

    He's not going to fight out of the slump by sitting on the bench, and the Twins can't continue to let him flail away out there. He's just not focused, swinging...
