  1. I remember this incident and this team. Mauch...

    I remember this incident and this team. Mauch was a big platoon guy and when you look at the roster you can see the many platoons he used. Our rotation wasn't to bad. But the bullpen was god awful....
  2. I'm most surprised by Plouffe's plate discipline...

    I'm most surprised by Plouffe's plate discipline and his hitting to right. Reminds me of how Brian Harper turned around his career and became a lifetime .300 hitter for the Twins. If he can sustain...

    What has happened to B.J Hermsen? I'd think he is soon to be a release candidate.
  4. Most of us are all pretty disappointed that at...

    Most of us are all pretty disappointed that at least one solid bat wasn't brought on board. I actually feel sorry for the young man that will be drafted in the 2nd round this year. Because how he...
  5. This roster will be in flux for the first 2...

    This roster will be in flux for the first 2 months of the season anyway. So I am ok with giving Kubel a shot. Especially if Gardy would change his philosophy on platooning. A DH of...
  6. If they go with Suzuki at Catcher instead of...

    If they go with Suzuki at Catcher instead of Pinto you have one more glaring hole in an already terrible offensive club. So, no matter who has to go, be it Diamond, Worley or whoever. The Twins must...

    Does Florimon have options? Why isn't Escobar...

    Does Florimon have options? Why isn't Escobar being considered for the everyday shortstop job? He seems to have a better bat. And we need every bit of offense we can get.

    Autographs at Twinsfest: I have a collection of about 60 Autographed Twins Baseballs. Ranging from Bernardo Brito to Rod Carew. I'm amazed at the poor quality of the younger players autographs. ...

    I sure hope Bartlett can win the SS job....

    I sure hope Bartlett can win the SS job. Sentimentally, I think he can. He was a great clutch hitter when he was with the Twins and one of my favorite players. Logically, I don't think he makes the...
  10. I guess Kepler's numbers don't show it. But when...

    I guess Kepler's numbers don't show it. But when I saw him in Cedar Rapids the ball just jumped off his bat. And even though he has grown into his body I think he has enough talent to be a corner...

    Joe's career as a first baseman might be short...

    Joe's career as a first baseman might be short lived. But he can handle LF or RF. Very bad news on the prospect front with Sano's elbow and Rosario's suspension.
  12. What do you guys know about Burch Smith, rumored...

    What do you guys know about Burch Smith, rumored to be available for LH Relief, from San Diego. Minor lg whips look great. Big kid, under control.
  13. Is Dougie hearing anything on reclamation...

    Is Dougie hearing anything on reclamation projects like Baker, Johan, etc?
  14. What about Justin Turner for Plouffe competition,...

    What about Justin Turner for Plouffe competition, reserve infielder who can hit?
  15. What reclamation project would you go after? ...

    What reclamation project would you go after? Halladay, Johan, Daniel Hudson? What is the latest on the Korean pitcher Yoon?
  16. I don't know a thing about FIP. Could care less....

    I don't know a thing about FIP. Could care less. All I know is what I saw when Pelfrey pitched. And he was just not a very good pitcher. I don't know how his efforts last year merit a significant...
  17. I'd like to have Arroyo in the rotation. But a...

    I'd like to have Arroyo in the rotation. But a 3rd year is an awful lot of risk. I'd assume that if they sign Arroyo then a second pitcher of Pelfrey's ilk would also be added. I would rather the...
  18. They're both Twins Killers. But no way I trade...

    They're both Twins Killers. But no way I trade Mauer for either of them. Not even close.

    The Priorities that Terry Ryan needs to look for in a FA Starting Pitcher:

    1.) Age - He needs to be young enough to be around and contributing when the new wave of talent comes aboard in the next...

    My concern is that Terry Ryan will wait till the market establishes itself and he will cringe and pull back on aggressively pursuing anyone in free agency other then the scrap bin variety. I hope he...

    My Prospect Outlook: Glad they opened this forum to those of us that aren't really writers or bloggers. Just Twins fans with opinions. I throw this out for discussion.

    Can't Miss Prospects: ...

    Moxie, that team had talent and lot's of moxie. That's what has been missing from the Twins for quite awhile. Those guys were not intimidated by anyone. Give them a little pitching and they were...

    "Several players that are likely to be added to the 40-man roster include: Logan Darnell, A.J. Achter, Max Kepler, Jorge Polanco, Kennys Vargas and possibly Pat Dean."

    Wouldn't waste a 40 man on...

    I think the drop in payroll the last two years would cover the posting fee. And 10-11 million a year for a young #1 type pitcher is worth the gamble. But it will never happen. This is the risk...
  25. I'm all for being patient and waiting for the...

    I'm all for being patient and waiting for the next wave of young Talent. And in 2015 the starting lineup should be pretty decent. But this group could also take it's lumps like Hicks and Arcia did....
