    Also, question, does anyone have an opinion on the difference...

    Why is it assumed he would not clear waivers? Wouldn't the claiming team have to take his contract? Didn't he sign with the Twins because no one else offered to give him as much money?

    At first I was not excited about a reliever in the 2nd round thinking they don't carry as much value. But now I'm remembering how much the Twins were willing to give away for Matt Capps. How much...

    Talking about the risk of drafting a college pitcher with TJ surgery... Is it more risky than the floor of a high school position player? The more I think about it, the more reasonable it sounds to...

    Benji, I agree about the added bonus for Hoffman. Even with TJ he still probably reaches the majors before a high school SS or P. My dream is for Kolek to somehow fall to 5. But, I think Gordon is...

    I went with Hicks based on minor league track record. You'd expect someone to struggle jumping directly from AA to the majors, though his struggles in 2013 were beyond what anyone could have...

    I'm not that hIgh on Kepler so I'd start there. For me Rosario is not an option. With all the trouble the twins have had developing middle infield players, if they traded the one that worked out I...

    It's hard to get a handle on how to grade the Japanese players. For pitchers, there are a couple places to start. One, what's his fastball velocity? I'm sure there are radar guns in Japan, but you'll...

    I don't get the concern with the 40 man. After 180+ losses over the last 2 years, I hope there's someone fans can live without.

    I like the move. The situation reminds me a lot of Kyle Lohse. Good stuff but never really put it together with the Twins. Lohse moved on at age 27 and with the change of scenery had a very good...

    Maybe I got dazzled by the ERA, K and WHIP stats but I don't know much about him beyond the stat sheet. Though a low HR rate when you call the Great American Ball Park home is pretty impressive.

    I thought Cingrani's numbers were pretty great. If Sano or Buxton is too much, who would be reasonable? Arica? Kepler plus Hendriks?

    Cincinnati has a bevy of starting pitching. Any chance they'd entertain moving Cingrani? Not that I'd do it, but what if Buxton or Sano was in on the deal?

    Good FA pitching rarely comes to market and when it does, the cost is out of the Twins range. Who might be available in trade. It seems the Twins have the prospects to get anyone available, but who...

    Offseason trade targets

    I'm as excited for the Sano/Buxton era as anyone, but the pitching prospects still seem a ways off. Is there anyone you'd trade them for? What if David Price was available?

    I think it depends on what TR plans to do with Gardenhire at the end of the season.

    It seems Sano would NOT be a Gardenhire guy - brash, confident, not a light hitting middle infielder, etc. If...

    Sorry for the old terminology.

    Will Morneau be ranked high enough by Elias to be subject to compensation?

    Where would Morneau rank in terms of potential 2014 1B free agents? What determines Type A and Type B free agents?

    Not that the Twins would be in on it anyway, but is there anything to get excited...

    I'd take the under. I think the division will be better with the Royals added to competitiveness. Plus the Twins are in rebuild mode so Willingham and Morneau could be gone by July. Their best...

    That's exciting about Cuellar and the chage up. I wish Berrios (and everyone else within the Twins system) could have a change up like Pedro/Johan.
