    Something that hasn't been mentioned is that Corner OF are cheaper to acquire either via free agency or trade than a good 2B. Maybe if he shows enough with the bat we've got an awesome asset in a...

    Dead on. I could see if he had one year or maybe even if we only had a couple years but we have five years with the guy and I believe his value will only go up. I guess he's been doing it long...

    Let's just look at the last few years of free agent signings and trades to patch up holes.

    2010 our last good year they got Orlando Hudson and traded for JJ Hardy to patch the middle infield. ...

    I like Rosario too, in fact I even adopted the son of a gun. However, I'm just not sure enough of a guy with half a season at AA and possible character issues. Still kind of unclear on the "drug of...

    I guess I'm one of the few who would like to see this team try to contend now, even if it's unrealistic. You can't keep trading for the future . . . especially with the future. Dozier is under...

    What sets him apart and gives him a chance to be a top of the rotation guy is those ground ball rates. I just remember seeing his minor league lines and it was always a ridiculous like 3:1 or 4:1...

    That's my question too. He actually played the bulk of his games there prior to last year. Figured the first half they wanted to keep Santana there. Not sure why he wasn't getting reps there...

    What do people think Beresford's chances of getting a shot at SS for the Twins? I see he barely played there last year. I'm thinking partially because he was playing with Santana at AA. I can't...

    Also just glanced at Fall league stats, he had a 3/1 K/BB rate in 14 innings in the AFL, that's also encouraging. Still early but hopefully he's figured something out control wise.
  11. I don't have time to do the legwork but one way...

    I don't have time to do the legwork but one way to get around this would be to take the two best and the two worst games out to see how he did. That's pretty common practice in statistical measures...

    This one just stung because it was the bullpen that gave the game up and that's probably our strongest part of the team. Don't blame Plouffe either, he didn't put that guy on 3rd base to begin with....

    What's with all the positivity. The Twins suck so quit trying to put lipstick on a pig!

    Actually I'm hopeful this year is what I wanted from last year. I wanted to see some youth show up and...

    Eddie Rosario - 2014

    I was a bit surprised to see Mr. Rosario still sitting there when I glanced at the adopt a prospect thread today. Just a bit though as I can see the boredom behind a guy that is going to be sitting...

    I just turned the radio back on. Why did they pull Florimon? Injury?
  18. I hope you're right

    Hicks has a minor league average of .269 and only batted over .300 once in rookie ball. I'll be happy if he can hit the .269, especially after last year. The 20 dingers is more of a possibility but...
  19. Not sure honestly

    I know I've read that somewhere that discipline is a better sign than something like batting average and translates better as well. So a prospect is more likely to replicate discipline than a high...

    Me and a buddy were just discussing how odd it was that Hicks was as bad as he was last year. One thing that has been pretty consistent for him is IsoD and I also understand this generally...

    I was in the send him down to AAA camp at the beginning of the spring. I'm more than ok with this plan. I'm hopeful that taking the winter off helped him clear his head and work on the fundamentals...

    Gotta hope he falls through, give him some time in Rochester and hope he gets one more shot in a Twins uniform sometime this summer.

    I still can't fault the Twins for trading for him. Guy looked like a solid mid rotation pitcher plus you're getting a guy in May that has big upside/power pitcher. I don't think anyone saw this...

    I think the issue as others have stated is that he's not good enough to play SS, only 2B. Otherwise, I would totally agree with you.

    Really? Is that what the Twins think or what you think? I can see the Twins maybe trusting Diamond more but if they both have good springs, Worley has the better track record overall and I hope...
