    They will bring him after the deadline when there is more room on the 40. They just have to. Service time doesn't matter anymore as he will be an old man six years from now.

    I think you are looking at A C prospect like a pitcher in rookie or A ball that has high ceiling but lower floor. A risky prospect. The Twins don't need more AAAA players or relievers.

    Why does everyone think he will settle for a one or two year extension? He is coming off an All Star year. His value has never been higher and the FA catching class is weak. If I am Suzuki and...

    The premise of the article is long term deal. Most of the arguments for Morales seem to be based on a one year deal that it seems highly unlikely he would take. I believe the Twins promised or he...

    It probably has to do with posters like me who have lost some perspective about respectful posting. I blasted a newbie with snark on an off topic comment and it was toxic enough that I haven't seen...

    I agree. Only in baseball are Aces up your sleeve and loaded dice allowed. Most definitions of cheating would include some type of unfair advantage over the competition (i.e. more money to spend to...

    I like that plan and my only quibble would be that I value Suzuki more than I did when the Twins first got him. Maybe he will tank shortly and I will change my mind again but right now he is a...

    I agree. I think you would have to overpay him to give up Free Agency. With catchers looking scarce for next year that only increases his value. If I were the motorcycle I would wait for the...

    Fortunately the Yankee's are their own worst enemy. Revenue advantage has not proven the cure all to WS victory but it does appear to allow teams to be good and not have to sit at the bottom of the...

    gunnarthor, Thanks for the positive spin! Tough losses in all three games this series but I agree that we are getting closer to having better pitching. Most all the top prospects should be up by...

    The logical side of me agree's with Tobi and the group that wants to invest MLB experience in Meyer and May. The sentimental side of me wants to give the long-shot Pino a chance. I am a sucker for...

    You bet and I am willing to acknowledge all of that, but every pitching coach does that. The question is can he make just any pitcher good enough to be a good to great MLB pitcher? I doubt it. The...

    Yeah my thoughts exactly. We checked out Cola and Kubel the first couple of months here and although they had hot starts they were liabilities after a while. Waiting on Morales worked out in the...

    I think I agree with you here. Is the 5th pick going to be much better than say the 15th? They all seem pretty equal or have fairly equal upside and downside. I guess it depends in what you value...

    I think the Twins have that plan already in place but it won't happen until after Gardy's contract is up. The reason they resigned him was to take on the transition years and leave the new manager...

    Hard to believe he went from one of our best pitchers to being waived but just like Worley he doesn't have a lot of movement on his pitches they are too straight. If he doesn't keep the ball down he...

    I am just guessing and somewhat full of it. I don't understand why they let him go for nothing when they could have tried to build his value back in AAA. I am just trying to find a reason why they...
