By August 31'st this is all gut based hypothesizing, but enjoyable and intriguing nonetheless.
C- Chris Herrmann (just a small gut feeling he takes the job for a while)
1B- Joe Mauer

Michael Cuddyer's has a long history with the Twins. As one of the favorite players of fans and teammates alike in Twins territory, he will be a free agent once again following a season which has...
Any of Rodon, Aiken, Kolek, Gordon, Jackson, or Nola would be quality picks in reality. All have very reasonable chance to be very good prospects and eventually contribute to a major league team....
I am a really big fan of Sean Reid-Foley, but I dont see him going to the Twins. I think he gets picked late first round by a team like the Rays or Cardinals. If he doesn't get picked in the first...

Hopefully the days of consistent inadequacy at shortstop will end soon, which it very well might with some promising signs from Vielma, Santana, Mejia, Michael, and Polanco. All could be the eventual...
I also am a big fan of Marshall, but in my first mock through round 2 (first 69 picks) I predicted him to the Marlins at 36. I do feel that the second round is a good spot to try and get one of these...
Three high schoolers that I think are good fits for the Twins in the second round (if they last) are Killer's grandson Grant Hockin (a solid and upward trending pitcher with a pretty sound delivery...
Thus far my hypothesizing has the first 11 picks going:
White sox-Alex Jackson
Personally I like Ryan Eades, but he is ranked where he is not necessarily based on his status as a prospect, but due to the other prospects that many value more than him (actually a testament to the...
Thrylos, I like how you ranked Zach Larson at 36. He is a guy I really look forward to seeing grow. I wanted to rank him higher in my full list (ended up at 61), but with another season to gauge, I...
Yeah I try to balance my evaluations by accompanying all of the major focus pints: results, upside, proximity to MLB, with a dash of gut feeling (I also will acknowledge guys with lower floors who...
With the season coming up and everyone getting excited with the new prospect rankings that are coming out, I am curious to see how the insiders and non insiders alike rank the Twins prospects (or...

What excites me is the supposed state of his current delivery and mechanics. I remember hearing on multiple occasions that he has solid mechanics in his delivery (however I cannot seem to remember...

I like these ideas. I truly feel as if the Rangers would love Arcia (he just seems like their kind of player), and who knows, perhaps thats helps for a good return. I forgot about Billingsley, but I...
Andrus is a nice shortstop, but both would just be a pipe dream. Honestly, I would love to also nab Kozma as some insurance for Florimon. Let the best one survive as the SS, while the other is on the...
Yeah I have a personal affinity towards Miller, so when his name comes up in the mill I definitely would try to act. It seems like a trade which could be done, but would need to be negotiated right....
Earlier today it was rumored that the Cardinals may be willing to trade Shelby Miller (or Lance Lynn, but Miller should be the target) for a SS. While the Twins do not have a SS worthy of trading,...
Probably my favorite part is how adement he is about reducing his walks. He walked six in 44 innings! Granted he was pitching against young hitters who swing away, but a kid with naturally good stuff...
Likely opening day lineup
1. Dozier 2B
2. Presley CF
3. Mauer C
4. Willingham DH
5. Arcia LF
6. Plouffe 3B
7. Parmelee 1B
8. Mastroianni RF
9. Florimon SS

I hope they do not sign Jimenez as my gut feeling is that he will fall apart again. I have more confidence in Liriano posting up a run of quality seasons than Ubaldo. A guy with that kind of...

If Beede solves his control issues, I'm pulling for him. He's been a favorite of mine for a while, and reminds me of all of the young Rays pitchers, which would be a huge plus if he could live up to...

And that is why we are having this discussion, to bounce around ideas. I appreciate your input, as it is through the conversation we can formulate the best plan (even if it is only among fans). My...

Personally my preference for Ellsbury lies with the idea of intentionally creating an outfield glut. Right now it is more difficult than ever to get top of the end starters if you don't bring them up...

Yeah I agree with the part about the front office. It has run its course and some youth is needed. Coaching wise, I would be fine with Gene Glynn for a year or two to groom in a new manager either at...

I understand many things can change from now and 2014, but if you were in charge what would be your plan for bringing our beloved Twins back to relevance? Wait for the young potential stars? Big free...
