    Not every Latin player is flamboyant like Yasiel Puig. The OP makes it seem like having Latin players is assumed to create a more boisterous and outspoken clubhouse.

    If Souhan is going to focus on personality, he's guilty of giving Puck a free ride for the shenanigans he pulled after retirement. Hard to imagine Mauer being less than a model citizen.

    Taxpayers give money to companies all the time....

    Taxpayers give money to companies all the time. IMO, it is naive to think that pro sports teams are somehow more beholden to taxpayers than other businesses. Maybe they should be, but they aren't.

    And that he should also hit more homers.

    Because, homeruns.

    I assume there will be a contingency of Twins fans who will complain and say that Iglesius should be playing, right?

    If Pinto is your best DH option, he should DH. You pinch hit and run 1 time a game, you don't give up 3 at bats in case you might need to hit or run for him in the last at bat.

    RBI isn't overrated, its incomplete. What's missing is the denominator, RBI Opportunities.

    I'm guessing other cities feel the same thing. And Peterson really only missed like 4 games.

    I don't think anybody necessarily missed anything. Although it may not have been communicated entirely in the media, it does sound like the Twins, Sano and his doctors believed it to be a partial...

    That article says that he probably tore it in his last intrasquad game. So, Dr. Andrews didn't actually miss anything unless he was using some sort of hybrid MRI/time machine to examine a future...

    While I agree that it would be nice if we would all spell players' names correctly, I'm vastly more concerned about the substantial number of posters on the internet who do not know the difference...

    I'll apologize to the entire community in advance for the radical view, but I don't find Twins baseball to be particularly ruined. They're just in a down cycle. It's happened before, and it will...
  14. I finally figured out why people hate Mauer so...

    I finally figured out why people hate Mauer so much. Thank you. They hate Mauer because he puts up good numbers effortlessly. There's no grit, getting after it, battling his tail off.

    By your...

    You just made a pretty convincing argument why Mauer's playoff stats don't matter. Dude hits a double, has it taken away, still draws a walk, and then stands on base for the rest of the half inning....
  16. So it is Mauer's fault the rest of the team...

    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...

    Mauer's best 5 season are all above 140 in OPS+. Puckett had 2.

    My vote is Killibrew, Carew, Mauer, Puckett and that wouldnt change if Mauer retired tomorrow.

    Be nice if Mauer had the word...

    Mauer is the better player. I loved Kirby! I was at Cooperstown for his HOF INduction and at the Metrodome for his funeral. The arguments for Mauer are objective where as the arguments for Puckett...

    But he made that heads up play that one time and dove into the stands to catch a foul ball on another occasion all while playing for the Yankees; ergo, he's a great defensive player. Grit,...

    This is so darn inaccurate and I hear it all the time and I don't know if it is confusion or something else.

    Here is how Target Field was funded: 1/3 was paid by the Twins and 2/3 are paid by...

    Yes, let's look at that more closely.

    Players lost:
    Morneau- Injury issues that nobody could predict, honestly, was it worth trying to bring him back this year?
    Alexi Casilla- You arguing the...

    Money does not guarantee wins, but it sure helps fill gaps.....and I think the Yankees showed for two decades money can win, oh, and the sox and tigers and rangers all say hi too.

    Man, I just hate the Yankees and what they stand for. I'll admit that a lot of that has to do with them dominating the Twins in the 2000's. Is this a bad idea for them? No, they can afford it. The...

    Strange, but I thought this was significantly less than I thought he would get. I thought he'd get another 3-4 years, meaning another $90-120 million.
