    And I'd still consider it a mistake but I think Revere will do better in the NL and that ballpark than he ever would in Target Field.[/QUOTE]

    I fully agree, he's made for the NL and that park and...

    Is this a serious answer? I haven't been around here enough to know if there is sarcasm involved in this answer or not. You serious here, Mav?

    Liriano has a UHR of 96.8 out of a scale of 100. League average is 21.4 for pitchers, so he is wayyyy ahead of the curve here.

    After listening to this podcast again, I guess I can conclude that I am a non-analytical person. I couldn't disagree more with the notion that Liriano is not a headcase.

    Did I hear correctly that Liriano is not a headcase?

    I would submit that the vast majority of umpire critics have never been behind the plate in a competetive game.

    Ahhh, sports officiating. One of my favorite topics to banter about. Piling on the umpire is one of the easiest things in the world to do. In my opinion, blaming an umpire for costing you a game...

    Do you really want the Twins to be going after 30-something journeymen from other teams scrap heaps at this point?

    I don't.

    Like Provus a lot. As 071063 mentions, he does a great job painting the picture, which I believe is the essential goal for radio PBP.

    Not at all a fan of Gladden as a broadcaster. His PBP is...

    My apologies, Steve. My post was out of line, especially considering I had the sitch completely wrong.

    Post deleted- didn't have my facts together enough to be spouting off about this.

    Completely agree. I don't care how many outstanding seasons the guy has had previously. The past is the past. MVP or not, that was then, this is now. Why should we give anyone time to make the...

    I couldn't care less if our players are white Minnesota natives or purple Martians. I just want the team to win, couldn't care less about what the players look like or where they hail from.

    Actually, I think it makes perfect sense that a "once-elite" pitcher doesn't have a consistent delivery. Liriano V1 (pre-TJS) had such electric stuff, he was able to get by without having sound...
  16. Capps closes season's first win / seamheads stand down

    All the seamheads foaming at the mouth at the notion of Capps blowing the save last night will have to put their angst on hold, at least temporarily. Hopefully it won't be long until the debate fires...

    I think it's kinda silly to think with any amount of certainty how any particular player is going to respond to TJS. As earlier stated, Liriano's arm was absolutely electric pre-TJS. Between...

    This is the definitive answer on the Mauer contract. Well done, Cap.

    Think of it this way, purely hypothetical of course, and from a defensive standpoint: Runners on 1st & 3rd, nobody out. You can choose to move the lead runner backwards one base (to 2nd) and put an...

    "I would always trade a run for a double play, even in a tight game. I don't think that move was inexecusable at all."

    To clarify, you'd rather be down 3-0 with 2 outs & nobody on than to be down...

    Liriano's arm pre-TJ was super-human, an other-worldly talent the likes of which is very rare. While other pitchers may come back even "better than ever" from TJ surgery, very few have gone under...

    Baker / Off-season maintenance

    I've asked this question several times, but haven't been able to find the answer yet. I am curious to know if Home Run Baker had any type of tests or scans done on his elbow in the off-season. This...
