    I will agree with this.

    But I also agree with jorgenswest that a year from now, the "average age" thing at the big league level is likely to look very different. Top MiLB talent tends to arrive at...

    I'm on record as saying I'd be willing to go two years on Suzuki at $12M or so, and I could see stretching that. But three years is a non-starter. At that point, he's trade bait.

    This rumor would...

  4. Time to examine the infield and its future

    We've taken time in recent weeks to look at the current state, the rest of the season, and projections toward 2015, in regard to the rotation, the bullpen and the outfield. There have been widely...

    I feel the same way. I guess the twins are also trading up for better draft position next year. After getting swept by the Rays, I am starting to come around to the trade away everyone. (I don't...

    Some things are measurable, eg. strikeouts, walks, strikes above/below average, blocking runs above average, caught stealing, catcher ERA, etc.

    The only way Suzuki looks good defensively is is if...

    I don't disagree about the Astros' ineptitude and bad PR here. My point is that they did nothing against the rules. Oral commitments do not count as contract offers, unless they are in paper and...

    AND it looks like both those trades could be sow big returns long term for the Twins. May has been fantastic this season and Meyer is progressing with moments of near brilliance in AAA. If both...

    Like Denard Span and Ben Revere?

    I understand the Ryan doesn't move players when some people want him to move them (never mind that peoples' notion of "sell high" is often unreasonable) but let's...

    Wow. i love these threads that are premised: "If he signs a team-friendly contract"--one/two years at jouyneyman's wages. Recall Willingham received 3 years and $21MM. Suzuki will be in demand...

    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....

    If one loves Suzuki so much, why not get something for him now and then sign him in the offseason. There is no other smart move to make with regard to Suzuki. Sure, there is no guarantee then, but...

    I agree with this statement, don't get me wrong. However, this is where the culture comes into play. If Gardy, as the manager, has established a culture where players do not feel comfortable...

    You keep shifting the argument. You said roster age is "meaningless". It's not meaningless - it's generally an indicator of how well your drafting and development is going and if those kids are...

    It sets the bar for what is scarce, above average available pitching. One can hope that a lackey for a GM looks at fangraphs and thinks a big number for -ERA is a good thing. In terms of starting...
