    I don't follow the minor leagues like I once did but isn't the FSL notorious for not allowing homeruns? I see this Walker has 20 with 2 months to go. They have lots of decisions to make in the next...

    I hope they rush him. He's questionably listed at 6' and likely to break down with that frame. I know they're some exceptions like Pedro Martinez and Tom Gordon but very few 6' right handed pitchers...

    He's also great trade bait. If 15 other team wanted his services now they will want them in 6 weeks too if he plays well.

    Nice article and I'm glad the law geeks are fighting this but they are going up against a gorilla. I hope they are successful as cable and satellite basically have a legal monopoly thanks to...

    Dollars and years trumps. Many of the mid-lower level FA are cashing in for the first time. Players get tremendous pressure from agents and the union to take the highest bid. More money means...

    I saw the puff piece headline and didn't need to read the by line. This 3 year old and counting failed project is not Gardy's fault alone but a little turnover in a business is healthy. Especially...

    Interesting, Wonder what the war of Twins players departing via free agency would be compared to those they acquired.
  8. He has an awful lot of timing mechanisms going on...

    He has an awful lot of timing mechanisms going on right now which screams streakiness. Any event he's a great looking hitter taking extremely professional AB's. He's the right man at the right time.

    Terry Ryan is the fall guy for the Pohlad's cheap ways. TR is okay with that and knows it's part of the deal. He will spend close to every penny the Pohlads allow him saving room for incentives,...

    The only remaining question is whether General Manager Terry Ryan and others running the organization are prepared to let go of the last remaining tie to the old culture and spend that money

    Is...

    Would you give up an impact arm for nothing more than a solid 2b prospect?
  12. Get back to me when for the first time they sign...

    Get back to me when for the first time they sign a single meaningful player where they had to outbid other teams. Like a meaningful player before Xmas. Delusional.
  13. Seeing is believing and until I see them sign a...

    Seeing is believing and until I see them sign a single high or evn quasi high caliber FA pitcher/player, where they have to outbid other clubs, I can't dream of them signing any player other than...

    I'm outraged at the amount of outrage present in every single forum post on this site.

    That's a very profound emotion considering the subject matter.
  15. I didn't like the move and think he should have...

    I didn't like the move and think he should have continued. If he walks Butler then yank him. Could have easily thrown 1 pitch for a double play. More than anything I like the demeanor of this...

    I don't understand why they demoted Hicks. For friggin Clete Thomas to get all the playing time? I'm sure Clete is nice to puppies and little kids but he's almost as overmatched as Hicks and ...

    The story is really the same old story. Morneau unable to get a big hit in a big spot for his team. That at bat was not just bad but absolutely pathetic.
  18. I think this season is more reflective of the...

    I think this season is more reflective of the kind pitcher he is than last year. Nothing he throws has snap or late break. He's a lower tier MLB starting pitcher at best.

    Seth,

    1)Do you see Sano getting a call up this year? It's impossible to think he wont be a starter for the twins next year.
    2)Is he the best prospect in Twins history?

    Seth,

    Has Gibson confirmed to you that he's on an innings limit? Somewhere I heard that he was asked about it and said the Twins haven't said anything to him about one.

    There seems to be a difference between "advanced stats" and "saber" stats. Not sure there is a clear definition between the two because many people who like them or reject them lump them together. ...
  23. They are yet again an absolutely unwatchable ball...

    They are yet again an absolutely unwatchable ball team. It's as bad as watching the Wolves play mid-season. Blame Gardy or whichever player you want but this in on the Pohlad family. Winning will...

    The starting pitching is not just terrible it's terrible with question marks. Of the new guys, 2 are coming back from arm surgeries and the other lost his starting role with pittsburgh last...

    This staff is going to be a disaster. They literally have zero chance to even be competitve. 100 losses is a legitimate possibility.
