This suggests Gardy at least is on board with Pinto splitting time with Suzuki. Interesting he suggests pairing him up with starters he connects well with.

How long do they keep up the Bartlett experiment? 0-19? Has he looked as bad at the plate as those numbers suggest?
I have been hoping that Gibson wins the 5th starter battle, but I really...

What jmlease1 said.
I know you are there on the ground John, and so may have more insight than those of us thousands of miles away, but honestly taking Fryer, Mastro and Bartlett north instead of...
Done. Maybe now Summit will export to Australia...

Dozier, Hammer (traded late June/early July), Mauer, Sano (up after the Hammer trade) all around the 15 mark.
Not optimistic about Kubel

Comparing their best 5 seasons:
Mauer: 7.8, 5.8, 5.7, 5.6, 5.4
Puckett: 7.7, 7.1, 5.6, 4.9, 4.3
Mauer: 171, 144, 144, 140, 140
Puckett: 153, 142, 139, 132, 131

Is the projection what you think the Twins will take North, or what you would do in their place? For me they are a little different. What I would like to see:

I like JB_Iowa's distinction between progress and success.
Progress to me will be continued player development and roster refinement such that they can put a team on the field in September that...

Take them with a grain of salt if you will, but a couple of interesting performances to note here:
Solid hitting from the MI trio of Escobar,...

Hicks, Tonkin..... Sano :)
To me, signing Drew is a no-brainer. SS is just about the hardest position to upgrade and the pipeline of internal/development candidates is very thin. Getting a comparable upgrade via trade will...

Thorpe has been doing well in the Aussie league. It's not a great standard, but probably equivalent to Low/high A ball so a level of competition higher than he has routinely played against. Through...
Bonds, Clemens, Maddux, Thomas, Glavine, Bagwell, Piazza, Biggio, Raines
Steroid-era holdovers are going to make this a very crowded ballot in years to come, if it's not already
Outside of Correia and Deduno, the rest of the Twins starters somehow combined to deliver 600IP for -6.0 WAR (6.0 WBR?)

Done. It's been a great piece of work the past couple of seasons, and time and effort you guys put into it is much appreciated.
Jamey Carroll's perfect inning in relief.
I enjoyed rooting for Dozier, Arcia and Pinto during the year.
Its depressing to think that as of June 12 the Twins were 29-33 and hoping for...
Fair play to McCann for backing up his pitcher, but I can't see how he doesn't get tossed for doing it.

I think if Gardy gets a 1 or 2 year deal then either Jake Mauer or Dougie Baseball will be good chances to succeed him after that. It's probably a bit early for both, but I'd like to see one of them...

6. The heart of the lineup - Mauer, Willingham, Morneau seemed to provide such a bedrock at 3-4-5 at the beginning of the year. I think most people felt that if there were some vaguely competent...
Arcia will be fine. Let's not forget he's only 15 months removed from hitting at Ft Myers. I would expect .280/.350/.450 with 20 HR as a minimum by 2015, with the potential to be better than that.
Is there a base level of production from a replacement catcher that would render the marginal upgrade provided by Mauer behind the plate not worth the risk of further injury?
If the option for...
Hat tip to MLB.com for this, but apparently Brian Dozier leads the AL in XBH since 1 July.

Good point. I hadn't really considered that, but it makes sense to me.
