    Hoping that my man Kris would have his first start of the season today, but rain in New York changed all that. I will post his starts and achievements throughout the year, and hope to make contact...

    sorry, all - I thought I was just editing a sentence, and this ended up being posted twice. I'm new at this. Anyone tell me how to remove one of these so there's only one left? Thanks.

    Kris Johnson -2014

    2014 is Kris Johnson's first in the Minnesota Twins organization. He will begin the season as part of a potent Red Wings starting rotation in AAA. The 6'4" lefty starter came to the Twins as part...

    My takeaway from the first series is:

    1) Way too many mental errors and fundamental mistakes. I cringed way too often (see 9th inning yesterday; instead of 2-outs no one on, we have 1-out man on...

    Can't speak for everywhere, but most of Eastern South Dakota (Midcontinent Cable) carries FSN. I remember when the Twins tried to create their own network a few years ago, only one small local cable...

    Early in the season, I think the Jasons have a better chance to contribute than the waived players. None of them (Bartlett, Kubel, Presley, Parmelee) is a long-term answer. I also think, given the...

    Neither my brother nor I were very big physically, growing up in a small town in South Dakota. We played every sport we could, but baseball was the great equalizer. He could play second base and I...

    Posters here have summed up the final decisions pretty well. I see Presley v Bartlett, but with a real likelihood of picking up some other team's final roster cut to be our backup CF/4th OF, and...

    I've subscribed to Twins Territory Team the past few years, because it includes a field tour and some other stuff and Gameday audio for the same price as just getting Gameday Audio all by itself. I...

    In a year of experimentation that we're facing, with prospects (hopefully) coming up and the team not yet ready to contend unless a ton of things click, I don't see the Twins spending big dollars on...

    Success this season is a combination of performance and optimism. The disappointments of the past seasons have rested largely on the failure of both. We saw prospects struggle mightily (Hicks,...

    Like so many, I don't like Drew on a long-term deal. Other articles have pointed out that his market is limited because few teams need a SS, and only one of those (Mets) are likely to shell out...

    The Twins traded JJHardy and brought in Nishi because of the desire to increase the speed of their lineup. While we have some speed available (Presley, Mastro, Hicks) we don't have a base stealer on...

    What do you think Beane is asking for him? What's his starting point? I think he hangs up if we don't include one of our top 10 prospects (or 2) for him. We don't have a lot of "sell-high" players...

    The fears projected on this thread are substantial, and given the history of baseball, likely. But the key to each of the roster projections are the "second half" or "September" lineups. While the...

    Still, the reality right now is:
    CF Hicks/Pressly
    2B Dozier
    1B Mauer
    LF Willingham
    RF Arcia
    DH Doumit
    3B Plouffe
    C Pinto
    SS Florimon

    The problem with the free agent pool is that they are marginal addition by addition. Would Eric Chavez be a reasonable option at 3B and a regular DH? Sure, but then what do you do with Plouffe? If...

    I agree with those who are coming to the conclusions that there are not very many outside options for the Twins at this point. Salty wants too many years and is not that highly-rated defensively...

    The biggest PR splash would be Tanaka, and in a way, the lowest risk given his age and incredible track record. I posted this elsewhere (but in an old thread) but I think the math necessary to sign...

    I'm just going to address #1 because I think Tanaka is the key to a lot of things. This is a rare opportunity, and while there are serious unknowns, I think you have to use Darvish as a baseline. ...

    My bad on Gibson. He's in there for sure. So Johan, Hughes, Deduno, Meyer, Gibson. AND a Shandy? Dream is getting better and better.

    A Year From Now

    Much has been said about the speed of ascension of our prospects (and I love that series of articles), but the Pollyanna in me put them all together and dreamed of a day in August, 2014....
