    Managers don't create talent but the good ones will maximize the talent on their roster. I don't think anyone ever accused Gardy of being a genius even when they were winning. The fan base has...

    I don't think the twins ever fully grasped the notion that they're rebuilding. If you have a bunch of pieces in place it makes more sense to take a flyer on veterans that are past their prime, but...

    I wouldn't cut him if no one wants him but I wouldn't be remotely stingy about any offers for him. He's gone at the end of the year regardless (unless they pull another Pelfrey on us) and this...

    I would agree that you move him to simply get him out of the way. I'm in the fire sale camp, the Twins need to look at what they have in their youth and respond accordingly this off season because...

    There isn't a veteran on the roster that the Twins shouldn't be shopping around, including Joe Mauer. The heavy touted prospects in their system still have to take their lumps once they get to the...

    What's the benefit there? Several TD posters seem to think Morales looks washed up and suddenly forgot how to hit but once the rust is completely gone I don't think that will not be the case and...

    I sort of felt that Morales was signed as trade bait from the beginning so hopefully he starts raking and they can unload him for something good. I think the Twins will resign Suzuki but I don't...

    Trade him. Trading veterans w/ expiring contracts is rebuilding 101. I like him but he's replaceable.

    I don't see their record improving much compared to the past few years but at least now there are several guys close to being ready so I agree w/ everyone else that it's time to trim the fat and...

    It's true there isn't much depth but the fact that the young guys coming up will struggle in their 1st few seasons is exactly why it doesn't pay to keep veterans around if they can bring in anything...

    Hopefully they shake things up for once before the deadline, they're still not any closer to being contenders than they were 3 years ago so w/ that and their stocked farm system there is no reason to...

    I don't think Buxton ended his 1st year in CR, Gordon is probably off to a better start actually. Speaking of Buxton, what's up with his nagging wrist injury? He's going to fit in well around here.

    I don't think 2B was ever a perfect fit for Rosario anyway (Polanco is probably better suited for future 2B). He should be our LF of the future but could probably hold down CF for a season or...

    Right. You can't automatically assume a developing prospect's minor league stats are going to define him throughout an entire career. Those that get it and work hard improve those that do not quickly...

    I don't think Santana has as low of a floor as some of the posters do, obviously he's not going to flirt w/ .400 his entire career but he looks like a pretty good baseball player to me and his minor...

    Apparently there aren't many consistent pitchers then because the kid's hitting like .370, nothing silly about that. Kid can play, he's a little raw but the talent is there and until there are 8...

    They signed the biggest FA deal in team history but they had taken $20+ million off the books by cutting bait on Morneau, Blackburn, and Doumit and their needs at pitching were so painfully obvious...

    I also liked that Tom Powers article. It's great to see the mindset change and the shuffling roster has been entertaining. Still not a huge Twins FO fan but could be swayed by more moves condusive to...

    Gardy seems like a great guy but his baseball decisions seem to become more baffling each year. I wonder how much influence guys like Steinbach, Molitor, and Bruno have on him. I'd think one of...

    Too soon to say he won't cut it as a starter, plus there can't be much of a drop off from a starting OF on a bad team and a strong 4th OF on a world series contender. He'll get there.

    The Twins have held on to players longer than they should have in most cases over the past few losing seasons, but I agree (at the moment) that they might be closer to contention than at least I...

    Take away the horrific start to his career and his numbers aren't quite so bad given his age/experience. He has no business anywhere near the top of the lineup though and that should've been...

    You don't have to be 100 ft tall to be a good pitcher, he's got plenty of potential.

    Agreed. When you have 2 good players at the same position you gotta move one if he can bring in something at a different position of need. Sell high. What are the odds Suzuki keeps this up for...

    So you're into Florimon but not Nunez? Anyone who's good enough to play regularly for the Yankees in the Eastern division ought to be able to contribute to the Twins roster. Florimon is a AAAA...
