    Careful with using select trades as a benchmark for others, especially trades that seem very favorable to one team even at the time (i.e. Doumit and Beltran). Such deals are always possible, sure,...

    I think there's a pretty good chance that Suzuki, after the season he's having, wouldn't want to take an extension mid-season from the Twins when he could sign with a real contender in the offseason....

    The market is setting up perfectly for the Twins to trade Suzuki. I hope they don't fool themselves into thinking that a) they're a playoff factor and b) Suzuki will continue to hit way above his...

    I understand and I understand that things have tended to go negative the last few years. Less so on the minor league threads but there's always some frustration there over when prospects will be...

    And it's a matter of historical fact that in any other organization it would be a much harder problem to fix than the manager's Catcher Injury Anxiety Disorder. But the Twins are likely to struggle...

    Yesterday in the game thread, Glunn posed the following question:

    If you could be the owner of the Twins for one day, and could fire the GM, would you do it? If so, who would you try to hire as...

    Mitch Garver in the 3 year range might fit the bill. More advanced than both Pinto and Ramos were at that level, IMO. ...

    The obvious move to me is to cut a bullpen guy.

    [QUOTE=Jeremy Nygaard;249625]I think before the weekend it looked like an easy choice to send Florimon and Polanco down when Nunez and Plouffe were ready to return.

    But now that it's Monday and...

    I expect Florimon to stay on the 40 man roster too. He's exactly the kind of player you want to accumulate if the goal is to lose 90 plus games season after season.

    Guerrier too.

    Two consecutive games where Guerrier looks like he is in mop up mode and he gives up the winning runs. For cripes sakes major league baseball is a business and a major league baseball team like the...

    Suzuki isn't signed for 2015. Unless you think the Twins should give him a qualifying offer of $15M they HAVE to consider trading him.

    Yeah rushing to release Correia just when he's starting to pitch well makes no sense at all. Even if the plan is to bring up Meyer and/or May mid-year, why would you release a veteran starting...

    It is funny that even after giving up just one run over his last two starts (admittedly against a couple of teams from the weak AL East) that people still want Correia replaced. I'm not saying I...

    Yes....for the issues with Hicks and the Twins boiling over. Sometimes that final straw is something completely unrelated.

    The question is are you willing to lose games while Pinto figures out how to catch? He hasn't been good behind the plate. The truth is he's been outplayed by Suzuki (probably offensively, and...

    Look at his use this year. What young catcher could have been successful with the way Pinto has...

    Since the end of the 2011 season, the term, "rebuilding" has never crossed the Twins' lips, they've been half and half ever since then.
