    I just think its ridiculous starting the season March 31. The season should never start before April 10. Play more doubleheaders.

    Ok, Ok, let's not get hysterical here. None of the three players in question--Parmelee, Presley, Bartlett--is good, so while choosing Bartlett over the other two is a mild surprise, it hardly...

    Scouting and evaluation isn't just about finding talent. Sometimes it means spotting a lack of talent or potential, and when it is especially clear-cut, you may as well act decisively.

    Any amount of improvement matters if it comes from players who will still be contributing when the team returns to contention.

    If it comes from bouncebacks by Willi, Kubel, and the like, it will...

    He can hit homers if the pitch is in a certain place, but when the pitchers stopped pitching there a while back he has been unable to adjust in a way to punish their adjustment. If he did find such...

    If budgets worked on a strictly year by year basis...fine. Putting all your eggs into one year's basket that restricts future flexibility? That's foolish. And the label I would give to that kind...

    As I understand it the dissent is that the Twins didn't sign the top Baseball America int'l free agents THIS year. I'm not at all concerned if the Twins don't satisfy these types of dissenters. And...

    Drew hits better than Florimon but not 8 figures more. Florimon is top 3 with the glove and its nice to have that at the SS position when you don't have Tulo or Segura.

    Nothing embarrassing...

    Yes, I think his performance last year and the year prior are most likely better comps than his prime years nearly a half decade ago. He's declining, and clearly. You don't really think his fall off...

    No.

    Hicks in RF, Buxton in CF, Rosario in LF, Arcia at DH, with several other young players ready to come up and be the 4th OF/DH/1B.....Even is Hicks can't play as a starter, you are covered with...

    I like the Kubel signing and the moving of Doumit. If Kubel hits, great, if not. I'm still happy with the risk/reward and the moving of Doumit. The Twins are trying to move Colabello too, which is...

    Our favorite team has backed themselves into the too much starting pitching corner after 3 straight seasons of losing 90+ games. The FO has chosen to go with several familiar, veteran inning eaters...

    Deduno

    I continue to be surprised by the number of Twins Daily posters (who based on their posts in other threads) seem comfortable tossing aside Sam Deduno.

    I'm not going to understand it but let's...

    Correia was definitely better than Pelfrey. Deduno... Well, he didn't pitch much but when he did, he was better than Pelfrey.

    The question here shouldn't be Mike Pelfrey's 2013 stat line and...

    This is an absurd standard to set. If I didn't know you were serious, the statement on itself would appear overtly sarcastic.

    You may be right, or maybe the Twins' scouts just really like Nolasco and Hughes. I'd like to think it's both, but I have no way of knowing.

    What I believe is that these two pitchers are good...
