    What's not to like about that day in the minors?! I love this time of year. Exciting promotions that's we've been clamoring for and what not. Thanks to Shane Wahl for the GCL players to watch and...

    Well, here we go for a stroll down GM way:

    Ive seen you try to make this point in other threads and I don't think it holds much water. First, he said Ryan and Gardenhire, not just Gardy. Second, just because some new hires elsewhere hasn't...

    Yeah, super depressing. Wimmers at the time was the absolute Zenith of Twins philosophy pitching and we could all probably hear a collective groan with that pick. I understand about hindsight blah...

    Wow, where to begin? There seem to be a lot of exciting young men in the lower levels. Berrios and Thorpe may be figuring out their respective levels, Swim, Garver, Christensen,Kanzler, Burdi, Boyd,...

    Nice to see levi michael playing again and grabbing a hit. Some nice hitting performances yesterday all over the system! However I can't help but notice the conspicuous absence of May's start. Where...

    End of the first half seems like a good time to say thank you to Seth and everyone else who puts in so much time throughout the busy weeks putting these together. Ive followed you each since before...

    I love that the twins are picking Australia clean. Other of there strategies make me sad but this one I am fully on board with. Really sharp and Gibson may be another fun prospect to follow.

    That's encouraging from young Mr. Thorpe. Hes been improving in each start. So, who's dog did the Red Wings kick to get black balled from the all star game?!?!

    I agree with all the level-headiness in this thread. I am usually a doom and gloomer but for Thorpe being so young for his level, I think you just want to see improvement, which we have. The dip in...

    That really sucks. Another one of the Twins 'good' young pitchers goes down. Felix Jorge was ineffective, Yorman Landa, who knows on him, and now Romera. All three seem to be toast. Such is life...

    Am I missing something or has it been a long time since Stephen gonsalves has started?

    With all our favorite prospects playing well, I'm left to feel sad that Levi Michael is left out of the fray still with his injury, right when he was hot. Injuries stink, go twins

    That approach and mindset is sooooooo flawed and makes me so angry I can't even believe I'm a fan of this organization sometimes. Do the Twins realize that when they make a splash with one player...

    Brock - I agree in part. With there being a number of worthwhile prospects out there to get, it does make sense, in a sense, to spread your chips around and hope to hit on one or more. My point...

    Haha, yeah something like that! And as the person in your blog wondered about how pitchers did after coming to the Twins, I saw something exactly like that too somewhere (I know, really helpful,...

    I have to agree with you Thrylos and use your comment as a taking-off point. Others on this site in the past have compiled the stats of pitchers coming into the org and leaving the org and having...

    Yes and no. Rick Anderson coined that phrase and yes, has publicly said what we take as the meaning is not what he meant. However, our meaning has characterized his staffs for a decade. He is pitch...

    I agree in part. Thorpe so far is awesome and the Twins seem to have bumbled onto a market inefficiency (!) in Australian players. However, the rest of their international spending is frustrating...

    Right, and they did so when they were in a down cycle to boot. We don't HAVE to only be aggressive when the team is looking to contend, rather, we could be aggressive in order TO contend. The Twins...

    I have no doubt whatsoever that in a few years the twins "braintrust" will regret this draft. What an absolute joke. I don't care that I don't have eyes on these players like the scouts, I don't need...

    Sometimes I feel like its hard to be a fan of twins drafting. Climbing aboard the relief pitching train again in a deep HS start in pitchers draft?? Right.... Of coarse I'm not privy to their info...

    I really wanted them to grab Jackson when he fell, though I kne they wouldn't. I agree that this might be a mistake with jackson getting comps to wil meyer's career. I will hope for the best though....
