    How much of a necessity is having a lefty starter? Target Field appears to play well for RH hitters and is tougher on LH, so you'd think throwing RH starters out there would make sense. The Tigers...

    I picked Willingham. I also predict a two-year extension next October/November for $16-18MM. Twins will need a DH in the lineup with all the kids.

    Well, if they want me to buy a ticket, they're going to have to do better than an outfield with Presley and Parmelee in it. I think fans are getting tired of the Twins putting AAA-AAAA talent on the...

    The Brewers just traded Aoki to the Royals for Will Smith. Aoki would have fit in nicely as a bridge to Hicks-Buxton-etc. and would allow for one of Willingham/Arcia to DH and push Doumit to the...

    I agree completely. And Gibson is 26 years old. If he's not good enough to be in the rotation from opening day 2014, then he's just not good enough.

    If they sign Pierzynski, I would not be surprised at all to see Fryer on the 25-man roster in April as the back-up catcher. Pinto needs to be playing 5-6 days a week at AAA to iron out his defense. ...

    Hendriks has another option year left. It will be interesting to see what happens with Worley, Diamond, and Deduno, who are all out of options. If all three are in the rotation come April,...

    I like Molitor on the staff, but it should be at the expense of Vavra or Ullger with someone from outside brought in as well; this organization needs some new blood in coaching/leadership roles.

    I'm probably in the minority, but retiring numbers should be reserved for upper-echelon Hall-of-Famers only. Now, "upper-echelon" is definitely subjective and I don't have any specific criteria for...

    I've been following the Twins daily and religiously for about 35 years or so... and this is about the lowest and most apathetic I have felt about the team during that time. It's their prerogative to...

    My god. How many fourth and fifth starters does this team need? They have Correira for next year. Deduno will be back healthy. They seem intent on giving Diamond and Worley another shot. Albers,...

    Mr. Hendriks has one option left. He was called up (added to the 40-man roster) in Sept. 2011, and was optioned to AAA in both 2012 and 2013.

    Not that it should have any bearing as to where (if)...

    Unless Gardy stops shifting him between positions all the time, it will be awhile before we know about his defense. Last night he was in RF, today it's LF again. Give him one position and let him...

    I've always loved the idea of Mauer at 3B. We are hearing that Sano would be adequate there defensively, but Mauer would seem to have the range (and of course the quarterback arm) to be one of the...

    One thing to keep in mind is that Diamond, Deduno, and Worley are out of options next year. Knowing the Twins, they will want to give them all another chance as they won't want to risk losing them...

    Since Rochester is the wild card, why are they playing Pawtucket instead of Durham, which had the best record in the league?

    Doumit has value on a contending ball club. Just not the way the Twins are using him. He'd be a nice bat off the bench, and an adequate fill-in for Mauer at C or our RF-du-jour against a tough lefty...

    Deduno, Diamond, and Worley are going to be out of options. That's going to have an impact on who starts in the rotation next year. I can't see any of them clearing waivers for an outright...

    Escobar is in the lineup today for Rochester. Brandon Warne tweets that Hicks and Mastroianni are also in Norfolk with the Wings. I'm betting they activate Ramirez from the DL for today's game.
