    While it is well-known that the majority of Suzukl's defensive value is derived from his distracting the batter by coughing or spitting loudly just as the ball is thrown, the metrics just aren't...

    At the risk of being accused of lacking modern sensibilities, I still am suspicious of the thinking that closers are overrated and so utterly fungible. If so many relievers have the stomach and the...

    None of these three have been foundational arguments expressed on Twins Daily over the past three years, IMO.

    Yeah, Pino is what he is, a #7-8 starter who's an upgrade over Walters, Hernandez, DeVries et al. Same with Johnson, a decent #6-7 guy. Both solid pick-ups this winter.

    I'm in the same camp. The most glaring and damaging deficiency with the Twins is that it appears they have no philosophy and discipline in place regarding the disposition of moveable assets. They...

    Gordon hasn't even done his first load of laundry as a minor league ballplayer. He'll likely get everything he can handle in Etown and fall instructionals.

    I would doubt that Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago combined have 5 prospects in the top 50. KC will likely be a force, but the future looks pretty bright in the division for the Twins.

    Another fact about quality and quantity: there are 30 teams, so by definition there will be teams that don't sign a "Top 25" guy. The Twins have signed one or more such high-ceiling prospect in each...

    I agree with this. He's certainly not worth getting all worked up about, especially about unrelated past sins, real or otherwise. Worley was "surprised" by everything, it seems, from the moment he...

    Fair enough ashbury, it's your ball. But you know, when several people "take the bait", what's wrong with allowing a little leeway? You'll note that as the first one "baited" by a commenter...

    And let's not get carried away wi9th Tonkin either. He was brought up as one of many examples of good results. And the argument wasn't that there aren't plenty of examples of bad results.

    I read somewhere I think that the same area scout who drafted Buxton is overseeing the scouting effort on Turner, but of course numerous scouts will study him.
