If a player of little to no importance to your team doesn't want to be here, do you force him to stay?
I'm not certain that's what happened, but that would justify it for me. Worley asked to...

I agree. I think when talking about Guerrier earlier Antony said that he's not in the business of holding guys hostage. Worley likely wanted out, and the Twins got what they could.

I believe the improved presence the twins have had in international prospect pools are a direct result of the increased revenue from the stadium.
Everybody focuses on payroll... but from the...

got a source for that?

The PR is negligible at best. Most of these people are the people who were gonna equate letting Morneau walk as a free agent to Torii Hunter anyway.
If anything this a shrewd PR move because...

And I suspect it's Andrew McCutchen.

the online equivalent of my favorite common man overplayed soundbyte. "I'M PULLIN MY TICKETS!"
that guy's decision on his tickets was made well before this move.

The PTBNL could be a prospect that helps the team in the near future, maybe a reliever close to the majors for all we know. The money saved could be instrumental in tipping the scales in the Twins...

IMO we have to wait for the PTBNL to judge this trade.
If you look at the PTBNL Butera brought in, it's possible there's a talented player coming the Twins way, but the Pirates in exchange for...

twins daily has learned that a billionaire avoided paying taxes.

the twins should sign every top international free agent. They never bust
07-02-2013, 05:46 PM
The Twins are not making the playoffs. Period.
I know I didn't break any news there, but people need to realize this when they discuss who deserves playing time.
Hicks was trending up...

It's amusing you start your post off with an argument nobody is making to claim nobody is making another argument.
The Puck's post brought up his spot in the rotation as an argument and stated...

Bonderman.... ahhh memories

It's not an excuse, it's reality.
Spot in the rotation has nothing do with Correia. That's an indictment of the front office not the player.
06-02-2013, 12:48 PM
Yawn. Correia is better than all the haters of the signing said he'd be, and he's not as good as his incredible April.
It's almost as if a guy getting paid #4/#5 money is playing like a #4/#5...

I'd rather see that hypothetical rotation with one of the inevitable soft-tossers in between. I like a rotation that varies from power to control pitcher to mess with hitters timing.
Hicks looks like a kid who made a big jump and is struggling to adjust. I think he's finally starting to come around. I really don't care what his end of the year stats look like as long as he...

Worley needed a confidence building start. He got through 6 good innings... no need to risk all that progress being lost in one bad inning.
05-12-2013, 08:27 PM
I would argue long term contracts to position players are inherently less risky than a pitcher considering the epidemic of Tommy John surgeries.
A pitcher has a significantly lower number of...
05-12-2013, 06:36 PM
There's also the difference between being a position player at a premium position vs being a starter pitching every 5 days.
If you have player A and B are equal levels of talent at their...
05-11-2013, 11:52 PM
No, what i'm saying is both of our statements hold equal merit due to the lack of a shred of tangible evidence on either side.

your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries
05-11-2013, 05:16 PM
How bout this. I'll continue to root for the Team I've been a fan of my whole life, and you can root for a player on the team (I can only assume) you are a fan of to fail.
05-11-2013, 02:24 PM
And yet Correia turned out to be a good pitcher.
It's almost as if guys who get payed to evaluate talent are better at it than the fans.
