    Is that right? I don't know where to get his minor league splits. That's kind of amazing, if true. He has a .665 OPS as a lefty this year, and .459 as a righty. If his righty stats could even...

    One thing to remember about Florimon is that, even though, he is a switch hitter, he is truly terribly against lefties, and actually relatively decent against righties. Escobar is a switch hitter...

    Well, a combination of Kubel, and the other guys on the roster, and the lack of much on the market make it nearly impossible. There's only a couple of Free Agent hitters that are likely to be any...

    I like this deal, but it really makes me wonder what the next deal is. TR has been saying that he has more work to do, and unloading Doumit doesn't sound like the end of that work...just a step...

    This is absolutely Terry Ryan's thought process on the matter, and it confuses me that people who really pay attention to the Twins don't get this. Terry Ryan was always willing to sign big...

    I like Gardner, and he'd be an upgrade and a nice leadoff hitter, but he's a just one year upgrade. He's a free agent in 2015. Trading anything of value for one year for Brett Gardner, just to help...

    I heard this also, and I thought it was strange that Sinker is the only that I've ever heard say it, especially, since I think Bernadino talked with someone with the Twins this week and got the...

    This comment about pitching well against the Central got me looking at hist stats, and I was pleasantly surprised. Hughes is widely known to have a 4.54 ERA overall, 4.90 ERA at Yankee Stadia, and...

    You should ask who the bald guy is at the table because Terry Ryan wouldn't make a signing like this. :)

    Franklin Gutierrez. He's been injured, he's been a great defender, he's still shows some flashes of skill with the bat, but he hasn't put it all together for 3 or 4 years. He could start in CF or a...

    People are seriously underrating Arencibia based on his low AVG and poor year last year. He's not Drew Butera. Butera has a sub .500 OPS and has never done anything with his bat in the majors or...

    Well, he a much lower BABIP last year than the rest of his career...if that bounces back to normal, then he's a bounce-back candidate. He's not a high AVG or OBP guy, but he also averages 20 HRs and...

    I think this is a good point, with one exception...the acquiring team has to have a couple of roster spots to take a flyer on these guys. I could see Seattle taking a pitcher and a hitter to add to...

    81-81 doesn't mean 0 WAR. It is Wins against REPLACEMENT, not AVERAGE. A replacement level team is full of minor league free agents and waiver wire guys and wins 50-some games.

    Mostly I think that Steamer has no idea how to value catcher defense, but I also question experts who think that Salty is a better than average defensive catcher.

    If you look into the catcher ...

    I didn't say that Doumit isn't good enough to play catcher for the Twins. I just think he's a better fit at DH, where they also have an opening. He might fit differently on a different team.

    I...

    I'm not talking about Doumit playing catcher for this team. I am talking about there being a team that might settle for Doumit and the Twins trading him to them. And if anyone expects Salty to be...

    There is a sort of a spectrum of offensive catchers from Saltalamachia (below avg catcher, ok career hitter) to Pierzynski (poor catcher, better career hitter), to Doumit (bad catcher, even better...

    If this was anyone other than Terry Ryan, I would think he was trying to keep the rumors out there to keep Saltalamachia's asking price high in hopes of team wanting to trade for Doumit instead. I...

    Interesting. That certainly makes me question my theory. When you pull out some 30-game samples, there's going to be more variability than if you look at the big picture. For all I know, one or...
