    Let the dealing begin - I wanted him back but if it isn't going to happen then we have to get something for him. The other bright side is that Pinto can come up and catch nearly everyday and we can...

    Here, here. It would be a huge bonus for this franchise if he could end up being a quality MLB player whether that is for us or as a trade chip.

    I'm so-so with Gardy. I generally think managers are overrated, period, but you can tell he really cares about winning. He is still grumpy after a loss and excited about a win - that rubs off on...

    Dozier's Baserunning

    We've all certainly been a little frustrated with the management of our hometown 9 the last couple of days. Here's something to discuss on the positive side:

    Brian Dozier has turned into a damn...

    Here is my theory which is, of course, conjecture just like everything else. It seems to me that Gardy had an inordinate amount of sway during the Bill Smith era and I see signs of it now when Rob...

    Morris is considerably better than Bert. Bert is kind of fun in that he is irreverent but he offers no insight. Morris will actually say something informative even if it doesn't reflect kindly on...

    The greatest condemnation in this situation is that Hicks has shown no actual production to indicate that he is ready for the majors. One of the Moneyball lessons is to place more importance on...

    Sticking to the title of the thread.....I'm giving LEN3 no credit. In all the years he has covered the Twins, the only thing I've learned from his work is where good restaurants are in Ft. Myers. ...

    Can we please stop with the "maybe they will pitch better when the weather gets better" mantra? As far as I can tell, the weather is the same for both pitchers. If they can't pitch in cold weather,...

    Here's a simple but useful way to look at it - call it Bill James in the 5th grade. First of all, nobody gets more frustrated than me watching Florimon bat. Its not even the lack of hits but the...

    Everybody is assuming that, if the Twins call, Drew will sign. In my opinion, anybody willing to wait out the market this long isn't looking to go to a last place club. If he is willing to sign, a...

    This whole thing is starting to give me a headache. Having said that I don't even know what I would do if I was the GM. Here are a few things that I do know: I don't trade any decent pitching...

    I believe that the moderators do a good job and if people try to write articulately without belittling or berating anyone, there will be precious few problems.

    Use of the words stupid, etc. don't...

    While he didn't have a great series, I really liked the way Arcia approached his final two at bats yesterday. He was at the plate looking to do damage, not coax a walk or hit blooper the other way. ...

    Well, since he is well short of 1000 ab in the big leagues I guess we disagree.

    I don't know that he really did get two good chances. From memory it seems that he got his abs in snippets without getting consistent abs for an extended period of time. With relatively few abs at...

    I love Kirby but the only way you can justify saying Kirby was better was the post season heroics and that had a lot to do with the team he had around him. Mauer is a better hitter and was better...

    I agree with this scenario if they keep him. I still believe, however, that if he proves to be a solid centerfielder, the Twins should trade him. As we saw with Span and Revere, good centerfielders...

    Can we stop with the "Twins ruined David Ortiz power" business. He turned into a great hitter, partially because he could use the whole field in Fenway and because he started taking special vitamins...

    Good Lord - this is the kind of stuff that drives people away from TD. There is no downside to this in any way, shape or form. They can cut the guy tomorrow if they want. Opposition to signings...

    I assumed all along he was signed to be a starter. I have been generally skeptical of framing statistics but the numbers in the article seem meaningful.

    I don't think this is that complicated. Nobody knows what Florimon will do at the plate this year; no person or model can accurately predict this. Based on his track record, its not likely that he...

    OK, color me skeptical. I'm sure it works in certain circumstances but not in others. Another factor not discussed is that pitchers have to be able to pitch to the proper spot in relation to the...
