    A lot might come down to eating some portion of some of these contracts to basically buy better prospects. I would absolutely do that in Willingham's and Correia's cases. I don't think the Twins like...

    I am generally on board with a full fire sale. Fien and Plouffe could get a good return. Duensing a marginal prospect (same return for Correia). If I could trust that Gardenhire would use Plouffe in...

    I just hope they get some young arm from A ball or lower instead of any kind of AAAA player. Top hope could be a Aaron Slegers caliber pitcher.

    May should be starting after Correia is traded and Meyer should be in the bullpen after either Fien is traded or Burton is dumped.

    I think it is good for Hicks to get back to that level and play well. He then gets his baseline reset and can move to AAA to build on it. And then . . . starting CF out of ST 2015!!!

    Haha, I know that awful feeling, Jeremy. It has happened to me lots of times, with a wide variety of things I have written.

    Garver and Murphy are impressive. Murphy cannot stay in E-Town anymore,...

    I like these three trades a lot. The Morales for Marlette trade could certainly happen. I am not sure what the Reds would want to offer for Willingham.

    Pinto and Herrmann can hold it down. Trading Suzuki is an obviously choice.

    It is beyond my comprehension how anything other than a trade happens. There is no other reasonable way to go about this. Suzuki could bring in a Travis Harrison or Max Kepler or Stephen Gonsalves...

    Yeah he needs to be promoted to play at an appropriate competition level. He is really dominating.

    This is pretty close, I think. I bet Pinto makes it as a catcher. With that, then Vargas can DH:

    1. Buxton, CF
    2. Mauer, 1B
    3. Sano, 3B
    4. Vargas, DH
    5. Dozier, 2B
    6. Arcia, RF
    7. Pinto, C...

    Tomshaw is 25.6 years old in Fort Myers. Not very exciting.

    Adam Walker can probably get a taste of New Britain in August. The power potential rivals Sano and Vargas.

    I honestly don't see the payroll issue as all that relevant for now. The Twins are going to have to turn to the youth, and they are cheap. If there is a fire sale in the next two weeks (I hope!),...

    Williams still struggling in low-A. Maybe pushing him to Fort Myers would actually give him more confidence. The treatment of Williams here is rather puzzling.

    I would trade Plouffe in a heartbeat now. Maybe a Deibinson Romero trial would make me feel better before doing so.

    For what it's worth, Dozier's career WAR is 7.3. Plouffe's is 2.9. Maybe bringing those two together in a conversation doesn't really work?

    Well if the option is to platoon him with Arcia after Sano arrives, then fine. We do know that this would require a change of manager, however.

    Trevor Plouffe is 28 with a career triple slash of: .241/.304/.411 (.714) in 1685 appearances. There is no disputing the general and total averageness of these statistics. It's not going to get any...

    Absolutely on Lively. Willingham for Lively seems possible. Amir Garrett might be worth looking into.

    Patrick Wisdom might be a good player down the road, as far as the Cards go. Or the Twins...
