    Sorry, my mistake. I thought I remembered something from your posting history that didn't involve Mark DeRosa, but alas, no. :)

    I don't know about that. Around the time of Hunter and Santana, it actually was quite likely a better move to keep the player as long as you were a contending team in a winnable division, then sit...

    Didn't you also predict the Scott Baker re-signing? Same source?

    Although now that I think of it, Lavelle Neal tweeted that Meyer wouldn't be promoted this year, which might be the best...

    It's certainly possible but the "not likely" part of your comment is the important one. Any pitcher that is capable of consistently keeping runs of the board to that extent (to pitch the lion's...

    Especially since we just added Pino to the 40-man 3 weeks ago.

    Although yeah, Florimon seems expendable. We have a lot of infielders now and he's not going to survive the winter on the 40-man or...

    Agreed, good to see he is performing like a more normal ballplayer again.

    Let him sustain this over a bit larger sample, maybe improve that groundball rate a bit , before promoting him to AAA.

    It's not just the July 10th decision -- being more informed comes with more (or even some) MLB transition data on Meyer and May, which they can only accumulate after a promotion. Don't you think...

    This is a good example of what I was getting at. In Gibson's case, regardless of when he came up in 2013, the fact that he came up and struggled informed our offseason decision-making (re-sign Pelf,...

    Pino is scheduled for his fifth consecutive rotation turn tonight. How is he being yo-yo'd? I know they optioned him in the middle or that stretch, only to recall him immediately afterward for...

    With the all-star break, fixed "spots" are less of an issue. The important thing is there is at least 1 rotation spot that is wide open for auditions, etc., and it has been more or less wide open...

    Didn't mean to come off as snippy, I just don't see the Twins are particularly eager to do anything with May and Meyer this season (except get them in the Futures Game).

    And I really doubt the...

    I think it's a stretch to assume Correia will be traded this month, just because he has an expiring contract (especially with Nolasco on the shelf and Pino/Deduno already covering spots).

    But he wasn't "awful every other start" either. Arguably he wasn't awful at all. Dating back to May 10, outside the scuffling three start stretch I mentioned, Meyer made 8 starts, pitched 5+...

    Meyer wouldn't burn an option year unless he was added to the 40-man/25-man and then sent back down to AAA before season's end. And actually, he would have to spend more than 20 days in AAA while on...

    You omit that June 25, the Twins named Trevor May to start the upcoming Futures Game on July 13. Seems a weird thing to do if you're planning to promote him within the week.

    It certainly is...

    Good point on the Futures Game assignment -- I forgot about that. That makes it pretty clear May was ticketed for roughly an August debut at best regardless of his injury. That wouldn't be a...

    It's unsurprising given the options, but it's also more than a little uninspiring. Herrmann's slash line has been decent this year at AAA -- but it's still largely AVG driven and his BB and K rates...

    Pino was called up before May got injured, and I'm not really convinced it was just fluke bad timing -- they could have easily worked May into the rotation anytime over the prior month. May was on...
