    "Nolasco throws a lot of breaking stuff, and in his first two starts we've seen too many flat pitches and floaters. But at the same time, this is a guy who's pitched in southern Florida for the last...

    I know this will seem very conspiratorial. It feels like MLB just bought Tanaka for the Yankees. The first year is paid for already. I hate A-Rod, but I have a feeling that the Yankees are not...

    Part of me wants them to decide to just do the surgery now. My nightmare for this is that they wait a couple more months before pulling out the blades. This shouldn't be that hard to diagnose. There...

    I'll give him credit for Meyer out of those 3. Even a blind squirrel would have picked Buxton.


    Edit: He also made a few other good picks and signings to be fair. But He has missed about as...

    I think that there is still a chance he figures it out. If we let him go, I think he ends up somewhere else. I will be pissed if we remove him from the 40 man, but keep Pedro or Cole, or (insert...

    I think I would be much more worried if Doumit and Hermann were the only options. Pinto makes the idea of a Mauer switch to first base much more palatable in my opinion. Trade Doumit. Hermann moves...

    If he is honest he probably would blame himself a bit. Frankie has 2 clunkers in 17 starts. Even after giving up 10 runs his WHIP is better than any Twins starter, as is his ERA. I would trade...

    "Vance Worley is one example of a professional who never quite mastered this pitch. "

    Does anyone know if he is working on it now? It would be a shame for the staff to allow him to leave that for...

    No. He needs to be able to work himself through jams. He is too inconsistent to come into a tight situation. I think his make up is as a starter.

    Of course Hernandez was recalled. Just ignorant. Hey Ryan I want my MLB TV subscription refunded!

    Agree with everything MWW said. They have to start transitioning to the future now. Not next year. Hicks is a great example why. He is getting his struggles over with now instead of next year or the...

    Thomas needs to be on a very short leash. If he keeps hitting like he has been known to, than I want to see Hermann and Arcia get all of his at bats. I know Thomas is our "only" CF but he still needs...

    Fine with me, unless they decide to do something dumb like send Hicks down. .356 OPS in April vs .707 OPS in May. He is figuring it out. He needs to stay up and keep tasting success. If Sizemore...

    He is on pace to nearly double his strikeout number of last year 88 vs 150ish. It seems to me he is driving the ball with much more authority this year. His Slugging % is up around 30 points and he...

    MLB might even ask a team to keep drafting him just to block him from becoming a free agent. Boras has screwed up enough of the system as it is.

    Deduno will make the roster if he continues pitching like he has the last few games. I think his ability to miss bats and induce weak contact is to valuable to let go. Florimon in my opinion has...

    Carroll should not be starting. He is a bridge to young talent at best and he is probably not on the roster next year. This season is over. There is no point in Carroll taking time from younger...

    I think Nick makes a great point. I have wanted to see Deduno this year as I have the high hopes for him still. I reacted with anger when I saw the front page, but this cools me down quite a bit. ...

    Ok. I say we get 5 pitchers that...
    1) throw a lot of no hitters
    2) don't walk batters
    3) strike lots of guys out
    Seems simple enough.

    Thanks John. Interesting analysis.

    Did I say anything about tanking? I said if we aren't going to compete then sell out for development. The downside is a few extra losses that replacement level players like Butera, Mastro, and...
