    Is there any story behind the Eades performances? Have the Twins drastically changed his mechanics, or asked him to keep throwing a new pitch he hasn't mastered? Is he having physical problems? Or...

    You miss my point; his position has changed. Will his game change? He's now filling a run-producing position with little defensive value.

    Agreed. His apologists have insisted for years that we have to measure his value by his position, he "hits well for a catcher" and the complete lack of HR power is excused. We'll see if that's still...

    Depends upon your definition of success. With the lineup we've run out there the last few years it's a recipe for stats, not wins.

    Mauer reminds me of Warren Moon. Tons of talent, but when your...

    I suspected we were screwed when we renewed Gardenhire. He's washed up. He accepts the losing, accepts the poor defense and bone-headed plays, and his players know it. He also accepts the...

    You've never seen "pure" capitalism, and the US is getting farther away from it every day. Please remember the regulatory regime is priced into everything you buy, which is why $10/day is a living...

    I think most people aspire to rise through the ranks wherever they are. I work for a company with 300,000 employees and a CEO that makes $20M a year. In fact, if you took the 25 highest paid...

    [QUOTE=diehardtwinsfan;199180]This line of reasoning tends to bother me, whether talking about minor leaguers or anyone else in general. Everyone has a right in this country to quit their jobs at...

    MLB doesn't want anybody on their minor league team who's looking for a "living wage". They don't want anyone there because baseball's a little more fun than bagging groceries, or flipping burgers....

    Nah, the twins would need to pay $200M to simply get even with the endorsements.

    I'm in the declining revenues camp. I don't for a second think the Pohlads have changed their spots. It's all about the money, every time, and if free agent spending has changed that means the...

    [QUOTE...Those decision makers (the front office people, the minor league coaching staffs, etc.) are much closer to the pitchers, and who they are. There's so much that we, from a distance, just...
  16. Why dominate?

    My point is I don't see why domination is a requirement. The guys who will be successful in the majors will rise to a challenge (mental makeup). If you move a talented player up a level and he is...

    I don't think you can promote the players too quickly. If they've got the raw talent, as soon as they demonstrate they can hold their own at a level they should be pushed again.

    Anyone who wants...

    How much pitching can the Twins afford? Short answer is, much more than they're willing to pay for.

    Please at least provide a text option. I don't have the time to watch video (it's painfully slow compared to reading text) and I'd hate to have to give up the daily report. It's one of the first...

    "they still need to earn their paychecks this year, an that means trying to field the best team possible with the assets they have"

    I think management is evaluating Ryan by dollars, not wins. If...
