    For those Twins Fans who still complain that the Twins operate under a scholarship program, consider this. The Twins entered spring training with eight players being out of options: Trevor Plouffe,...

    Trade Plouffe for whatever you can get. Move Mauer to 3B; They said on one of the Twins games that Mauer was taking grounders at 3B at one of the back fields. If he can throw runners out from home to...

    Diamond will be the 5th starter, IMO.
  4. The key to this question is the word...

    The key to this question is the word 'successful'. To me successful means making the playoffs – and more than just the one game for the wild card teams.

    The Twins have gone from last to first...

    Maybe the fact that this is a potential contract year for Willingham will make a difference too.

    I think Cuddyer has grown as a person since he left the Twins. I think he has grown as a player, into even more of a clubhouse leader.

    I wish him only the best.

    Nice story

    Nice story. As for SS, I'm thinking Polanco in 2015. Polanco's only hitting .294 in the Dominican Winter League, with a .744 OPS. (FYI - Oswaldo Arcia is hitting .262 with an OPS of .882 in...

    I suspect Worley will be gone. It'll be one of the starters. Even though he started Game 1 in 2013, he'll be gone before opening Day, 2014.

    Mastroianni and Thielbar, maybe. But not the rest. Too much potential upside.

    Surprising news. I expected Hendriks to be one of the long shots to make the rotation.

    The Twins signed Jason Bartlett to a minor league deal, with an invite to Spring Training. I think he'll be the starting SS.

    If Sano is ready, I'd say promote him and solve the 3B issue. i would...

    Swarzak and Duensing will be signed soon. Both are good pitchers and deserve their salaries.

    I'm not crazy about offering Plouffe a contract - especially for $2 million. I don't care for his...

    My prediction: Jason Bartlett will be the Twins' starting SS. I know, I know, it's a long shot. He took last year off. But if he's still got the SS skills and the hitting skills, I think he'll be...

    Good compilations, but I have a question: How come the total number of teams listed for Nolasco and Garza listed is 11, but there are 14 (or 15) teams totaled for Jimenez and Santana. Why?

    Would...
  16. OK, the Twins signed Ricky Nolasco. I think it's...

    OK, the Twins signed Ricky Nolasco. I think it's a very good signing, but I have a question. The Twins had 39 players on their 40-player roster. With just a few days until the Rule 5 draft, will the...
  17. Arroyo would make a good addition to the rotation...

    Arroyo would make a good addition to the rotation in 2014, but hopefully by 2015 or 2016 we will have Meyer and May up, making Arroyo unneeded. A two year contract with a team option year for year 3...

    I suspect Achter will be gone - selected by the Cubs in Rule 5 draft.
  19. I agree with Twins Best Friend – They don't need...

    I agree with Twins Best Friend – They don't need a "mentor" for Pinto; they already have one: Joe Mauer. He may not be catching, but that doesn't mean he's lost all of his knowledge and skills....

    I agree... I rated him A-, meaning he needs a little time – less than a year – in the minors.
  21. Here is my list, for what it's worth. The A+ to D...

    Here is my list, for what it's worth. The A+ to D scale after each name is NOT a standard grade scale. It is a readiness for the Major Leagues scale, in my opinion. A+ indicates someone who is...

    The 2013 Twins starting pitchers, however, ranked dead-last among MLB teams; that means they don't have many C/C+ starting pitchers on staff – they're mostly even lower.

    We need at least three FA...
  23. Cody: I appreciate your analysis, but disagree...

    Cody: I appreciate your analysis, but disagree with it. I hope the Twins trade Plouffe, not shift him to RF. He's way too inconsistent at the plate, and not a good defender. The Twins need to trade...

    I don't know – but the Twins added him to the 40-man roster. Interesting move for someone who is not on Seth's 50-man prospect list. But then Ibarra basically came in from nowhere.
  25. Sorry - I meant move Dozier to SS, not to 3B.
