    This seems like a very playtime imagination scenario. I do not see a scenario where Brian Dozier would be traded this season.

    Post All-Star Break 1993 through 2000 was a pretty dark time to be a Twins fan. Particularly the 1994-1995 strike (in general, this greatly changed how I viewed sports), Puckett getting hit in the...

    Just remember it the way I do: "With Presley in the outfield, we will have plenty of E's."

    Presley is a 4th outfielder. If they want him on the roster as a pinch runner and defensive substitute for Willingham/Arcia in the 8th inning, great, keep him for that reason. Give him one start a...

    Agreed. I was hoping he would make the team, partly because when we traded Revere I thought Worley was a nice "right now" piece. Not that I expected him to be an All-Star, but I thought he would...

    I don't think it's a matter of being crazy. There are certainly reasons that each of them could have more time in AAA. But what is really blocking them? For example, how is age 32 and slipping badly...

    Very similar to what I would have predicted. In spite of all the speculation that playing first will have a tremendous impact on his power numbers, I think the uptick will be marginal. Other than the...

    Give me the over, too. At least long enough that I will invest in whoever makes the icepacks and heating pads that are applied to Plouffe's neck from all that looking over his shoulder.

    I'll go with the kid that has the best walk-up music. And that, my friends, is Mr. Oswaldo Arcia. (2013 HRs = 24 in 479 ABs between Rochester and the big club...as a 22 year old!)

    I love prospect lists because I get to see what people who pay attention to this stuff (many as an occupation) think of players I probably have never seen play or even heard of. Generally, if many of...

    I have been having this discussion with a co-worker for the last couple of weeks. I think - assuming the good health of all arms - that Deduno gets the 5th spot, Worley goes to the pen, and Diamond...

    3) I will echo getting rid of God Bless America mid-game. It is forced patriotism, which I don't care for. The National Anthem at the beginning of the game honors the country and the flag, and that...

    Well, it's a policy not law, so there is some fluidity to it. But I think the kneecap thing is the glue that binds it.

    That's OK, there was also a weekly line on the number of PSH mentions. The house always wins.

    Certainly someone to consider. Other than his time with Toronto last year, I think he'd be solid as a fill in at 2B, 3B and OF, and would have value as a pinch runner on days he wasn't in the...

    Plouffe plays with urgency after watching Bocaton mash balls all over spring training fields. Bounce back Plouffe.

  24. Lesser talked about free agents: Who do you like?

    So, the hometown club has gone out and signed Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes, and I am pleasantly surprised by the activity. While I don't love either player, I can hear the upside arguments for both...
