    I love all the arguments and points of contention here about Perkins and trade vs. keeping. I'm in the "keep" camp because we need reliability in the 9th inning. It's that sense of security that he...

    I can create a scenario next year where a lot of pieces fall into place for Twins, like May, Meyer, Berrios in starting rotation, and Sano, Buxton filling out lineup next year and contributing, if...
  3. What's the upside potential for Dereck Rodriguez...

    What's the upside potential for Dereck Rodriguez after converting from outfielder to pitcher? Kid is 22 now. Looks like he did a great job for E-Twon with 3 scoreless innings.
  4. Hicks has to be depressed. He puts up and...

    Hicks has to be depressed. He puts up and O-fer(3), and gets pulled from the game on a night when the RockCats get 19 hits. Snap judgment: I don't see him back in Minnesota this year. Rosario and...
  5. Reading these rankings, and the talent that seems...

    Reading these rankings, and the talent that seems to be coming through the pipeline, I'm wondering how the Twins decision-makers go about building the 2014 ML roster. Do they projection, by...
  6. Just salivating over the possibilities after...

    Just salivating over the possibilities after reading the hitters we have in the system. As a long-time Cabrera watcher, anything comparable to the Tigers 3B would be great for the Twins. So if Sano...
  7. I am not opposed to a managerial change if it...

    I am not opposed to a managerial change if it makes the Twins better. That said, I don't think a new manager makes this current group of Twins better. We probably have at least one more season in...
  8. I want Sano up in the big leagues in September so...

    I want Sano up in the big leagues in September so he can stand on the same field and watch Miguel Cabrera hit and play 3B. Sano will learn more from watching Cabrera than any other player in...
  9. What's the upside on Reynaldo Rodriguez? He's...

    What's the upside on Reynaldo Rodriguez? He's putting up some decent numbers at AA, with like 17 HRs and 26 doubles.
  10. Got to like it when we get solid starting...

    Got to like it when we get solid starting pitching at AAA (Albers), AA (Pat Dean), High-A (Jason Wheeler) and GCL (Lewis Thorpe - wasn't this guy a swimmer or something in Australia?). And on top of...
  11. No freaking way do you hire Ozzie Guillen as...

    No freaking way do you hire Ozzie Guillen as manager. The guy's a walking timebomb and no way do you want him influencing any of the Latin players. ... Now then, as much as the Twins need guys like...
  12. Living in Tigers' territory, I can say without...

    Living in Tigers' territory, I can say without reservation that the typical Detroit Tigers fans holds Gardenhire and the Twins organization in high regard. They also are somewhat terrified that the...
  13. If the Twins send Perkins to the Tigers, then the...

    If the Twins send Perkins to the Tigers, then the Twins are essentially giving the Tigers the World Series. The Twins have to demand something like Castellanos and another prospect up front,...

    Perkins' value is only realized if you think the Twins have a chance of winning, and to win, we need a better offense, and better across the board starting pitching. If the Twins believe they can be...
  15. My hope is ... he grows up to be a fine...

    My hope is ... he grows up to be a fine upstanding young man, WITH A BIG LEAGUE FASTBALL, CURVE, SLIDER, ETC. And if the baseball thing doesn't work out, just be a fine upstanding young man.
  16. If you want to know how valuable a closer is,...

    If you want to know how valuable a closer is, look at what happened to the Tigers against Royals on Wednesday. Verlander 3-hits KC for seven innings. Then Valverde gives up a 2-run homer with 2 out...
  17. If you want to know where the Twins infield of...

    If you want to know where the Twins infield of the future is, take a look at numbers of Sano 3B, Rosario 2B, Vargas 1B, and how they rank in the Florida State League. I just finished looking at the...

    I'd like the Twins to time travel back to when Miguel Cabrera was available, and draft him tonight. That would solve our problem at third base.
  19. Seth - I'm a big fan ... of Vargas (and all the...

    Seth - I'm a big fan ... of Vargas (and all the other guys on your list). When is the last time we had such a range of great young hitters? As for Vargas, how is he able to hit for average while...
  20. Plouffe and Dozier aren't blocking anybody. If...

    Plouffe and Dozier aren't blocking anybody. If Sano and Rosario follow Arcia's development, both conceivably could bump Plouffe and Dozier from the lineup sometime next season. If Sano and Rosario...

    This 10-game roadie is a good measuring stick for Twins potential this season: Get 6 wins and we're looking like we might do something this season, but 5 wins or less reaffirms the fear that this...

    3 stars: Colabello - 3rd star; Beresford - 2nd star; Meyer - No. 1 star. I'm putting Beresford on my watch list.
  23. This is shaping up as a beautiful spring, even if...

    This is shaping up as a beautiful spring, even if the weather is crappy. Who woulda thunk the Twins take two from Angels, and the franchise's minor league teams are on fire (except Rochester). Let it...
  24. Arcia's job is to force the Twins to make a tough...

    Arcia's job is to force the Twins to make a tough decision. If he hits, he stays. There's no other way around it, especially if the Twins get pounded a couple more times by the Angels. The big...
  25. Why should we be patient? We're asking for...

    Why should we be patient? We're asking for performance - good at-bats, grounds balls, something. Right now, Hicks is overmatched, and needs to get his act together and show us he WANTS to play in the...
