    Pulols didn't get the contract from the Cards, why would the Angels pay for his past performance?

    He got his contract because they thought he could lead them to the World Series in the first...

    Contracts are not given as a reward for past performance. Past performance has to be considered as it relates to future performance, along with teams needs and marketing. In Mauer's first 5 full...

    I'd trade for Greinke in a second, you get a #1 starter for an extra 2.5 million per year. Gonzalez is a wash, no need to consider the trade. Gonzalez maybe a year older, but plays 160 games a...

    How is Greinke and Gonzales worst contracts than Mauer? Greinke was an All Star and Gonzales makes less money and is having a better year.

    Kemp is a good comparison, he make less per year but has...

    The Twins would either have to eat a lot of money or take back some equally bad contracts. No way they trade him, can't take the PR hit along with eating 20+ million.

    I guess I had higher expectation of Mauer, coming off an MVP season than you had, but there is nothing wrong with being an average player if that what everyone expects of Mauer. Just don't see the...

    I don't think Mauer problem is that of style as much as a decline in proformance. By the time he was 26, he had 3 batting titles and an MVP award and was a top 10 MLB player. Over the next five...

    Everytime they ask about injuries, they say healthy and there would be no reason to hide an injury. Even before the concussion last year, you could start seeing some signs of a decline. It used to...

    Considering trade offers should always be looked at if you are not contending, certainly on players who are not signed for next year. You would have to blown away with an offer for Hughes or Dozier...

    The problem for Pino and Achter is not being on the 40 man roster. They have competition that are putting up similar stats and are already on the roster, so it make it difficult for them to get call...

    Completely agree, I have not been a huge Hicks fan based on what he done, but I can't blame the Twins for bring him up after the huge spring training. But once he showed he couldn't hit, they needed...

    The Antony comment shouldn't surprise anyone, Ryan is the one who promoted him to his position. Also Ryan has been in regular contact with Antony, so it sounds like Ryan has had input into the moves...

    Why so serious? Just because you have a headache doesn't make it a tumor.

    This really shows the problem with signing players like Correia and Pelfrey to 2 year contacts. The Twins have marginal big league pitchers holding back prospects and the pitchers you signed really...

    I think people try to sell his struggles as just a slow start, but you can see these problems last year. His strike out increased and he could hit with RISP. His average began to drop fast last...

    From what I read, I would be disappointed if the Twins passed on Gordon. I understand he more of a high risk player, but Nola sounds like the middle of the rotation guy. I'd rather go upside at 5...

    In the major, but he went from a average player (excellent fielder) to an All Star. Hicks is a sub .200 hitter and not a very good outfielder, and trying to give up switch hitting.

    The problem...

    I don't think finding a centerfielder is as difficult as we are making it. The most important thing should be Hicks development. Now he collecting major league service time and hitting below .200. ...

    Toronto just picked up a AAA CF for cash. This is not this complex. Send Hicks down for development and get someone else until Fuld is back.

    Completely agree, Hicks has been sub .200 over the since last year, so saying he getting a raw deal is hard to see. He does have some talent, but he needs to start showing it on the field. He young...

    Revere was actually a pretty highly rated prospect after a couple years in the minors, 59 by Baseball America and 36 by Baseball Prospetus in 2009, so he was a good draft choice. He's turned out to...

    I don't think the discussion is potential over productions, it just that Rosario is more valuable at second than left field. If Dozier is 40/40, nobody talking about trading him. But it Rosario...

    I agree, the Twins are several years away, if Rosario can be good as second, his value is higher to the Twins. I would think the Twins could get better value for Dozier then moving Rosario to the...
