Myself, I respect Jeter as a player and understand what he has meant to baseball. But, being the face of the Yankees and the ESPN does has made me not a...

Ripken announced during the season he was retiring, so his tour started in July

Mauer was over .400 until June 21(his 46th game played)
his lowest point was .353 on Aug 1 (game 79)

Morris is ok, but its too bad the Twins/FSN cant/wont hire an analyst who played baseball this century.
Im guessing Terry Ryan offered Colabello in a trade to any team (with the return being any warm body) but no team took him up on it because they know the Twins are in a numbers crunch and could...

The hate and dislike comes from his pitching pace. Paint dries at a faster than Pelfrey pitches.
I liked Coomer as a change of pace from Bert. If he had a full season, I would probably get tired of him, but he seemed to offer up some commentary about pitch sequence and what the batter is...
I know this time of the baseball year is a lot of wild speculation and dream scenarios, but why would the Yankees trade Gardner for Plouffe when the Yankees have about 10 teams calling them up about...
I hope the Royals swoop in and give Pelfrey a bigger offer.
or there is a clause in his contract that say he has to speed up his pace.

maybe a discussion for another day, but the broader issue here is (and Minnesota Twins fans are aware of this with past injuries) that concussions are not limited to the football field and hockey...

I think the 'good fit' isnt on the Twins end, but on Molitor's end.

Minnesota Twins hire Paul Molitor as coach - TwinCities.com
that should probably answer the questions "why now?" and "is Molitor is a manager in training?"

what about the years he went 12-14, 11-6 etc with essentially the same bad talent on the mid to late 90s?
Radke was good. Very good. He is in the Twins HoF. He wont be forgotten by those who...

when? when the attendance falls through the roof at Target Field and need a promotion to rally around.
but really, Radke is a good representative for the Twins and a great player and is the Twins...

Im not a smart enough baseball mind to figure this out, but is Ubaldo a 'better' version of Sam Deduno? (you know, live ball, doesnt quite know where its going, gets ground balls, etc)
the thing I am thinking about is that Twins fans have to let David Ortiz go.
There is a whole wave of Twins fans, young people to mid 2000's bandwagon fans to only want to bee seen at Target Field...
Kubel was not on the roster.
there has got to be a way to move that energy from burrowing into the catchers noggin to something else
padding on the front and back of the cage?
some sort of breakaway mask?
the 'outwards facing...
as best I can tell...
BOS: Breslow, Ortiz
PIT: Morneau, Liriano, Garrett Jones,
ATL: Luis 'I want to be the closer' Ayala
does 'outright' mean they are off the 40 man roster and are free agents, or do the Twins still own some sort of rights?
Aaron Hicks made some brilliant plays in the field.
As mentioned above, that throw at Yankee Stadium where he gunned down Vernon Wells was 'holy [redacted]!' worthy.
here is my prediction: Liam Hendriks to 'long man', Swarzak to a 6/7 inning role. Swarzak is following in the step of Matty Guerrier

Im not a Pelfrey fan because anytime there is a runner on base, the pace of the game slows way down. And Pelfrey allows a lot of base runners
