    I would be ecstatic if we carried 12 pitchers all year in 2014, especially if the other 13 guys were actually all healthy.

    If he's smart, Collabello is spendng all off-season working on his 3b skills. I'm really curious now to hear how much Doumit will want to catch next year, that could really shake things up.

    Any idea if his contract will have one of those clauses where if he isn't added to the major league roster by X date he can ask to be released?

    I would be willing to bet money that this really was a situation where they said "Joe, it's your decision, but here's a deadline we'd like to know by so we can adjus our offseason plans accordingly"...

    While I think Kelly and MacPhail were good at their jobs, the Twins only had 4 winning seasons out of the 8 they worked together (the only winning seasons in macphail's ten years and Kelly's 15 years...

    I think calling it a fraud is a bit harsh. It's not like people were throwing games or juicing up (at least on our team) or playing dirty or anything. Did the schedule weighting help them? Maybe. But...

    I think Hicks, Mastroianni, and. Pressly compete for CF in ST. If Hicks doesn't cinch it, you start him at Rochester and give the opening day start to whomever is healthier and hit better between the...

    I think Hughes would be an interesting addition. If I recall correctly, the Twins tried getting him as part of a package for Johan.


    His career arc reminds a bit of Liriano. Inconsistent, marred...

    I don't think Plouffe is going to net us anything right now. Better to let him ride and hope he builds up some value by the trade deadline. I also am not excited about the idea of jumping Sano up to...

    All this talk of sending a huge package of players for Price is starting to give me flashbacks of Herschel Walker.

    No matter how good a starting pitcher is, at most he will be contributing in...

    I think it greatly depends on what position you are looking at.

    At this point, no pitching prospects should be traded. In fact, I would say we should be trading any pitching prospects until we...

    I'm strictly wondering about who even gets an invite to come to ST as a starter. I'm not even going to begin to guess at what Terry Ryan will do in FA or trades.

    MLB really should be pouring craploads of money into better catching gear. Mauer is the squeaky clean, no-ego, home town boy that MLB needs as it's poster child for a long time.

    Who gets a shot to start?

    I think everyone's in agreement that we need at least a couple of starters from outside our organization, but I think at least a couple of our "fringe" arms are at least going to get a chance to earn...

    I'm totally with you on Colabello. People are so ready to throw this guy aside, but he was ROY in the International League. I do realize that there are a lot of guys who have success at AAA but not...

    Seventh Coach?

    Who do you think the Twins should add to their staff?

    Personally, I think we need to go outside the organization and bring in some fresh blood.
    Top qualifications for me would be:
    Fluency in...

    My initial poin of this post wasn't that we should cling to Gardy no matter what.

    My point was more that he is NOT a terrible manager. If he needed to go just to have a fresh face in there is one...

    What can I say, I had a slow day at work.

    Really what they should do now is send Gardy to Venezuela or Dominican Republic for the winter so he can learn some Spanish and find an assistant hitting...

    I think you need to do a little more research. Let's look at your three examples.

    Joe Torre:
    Mets: 77-81, fired without having a single winning season.
    Braves: 82-84, made the NLCS his first...

    Gardy's Record

    I've started hearing the complaint come up again that Gardy can't win in the playoffs, and we'll never be a championship team under him. This argument always annoyed me, so I finally decided to...

    Who do we hold accountable for blowing away the team strikeout record? Hicks and Arcia could have been ROY candidates if they had actually connected with the ball more often. Plouffe, Willingham,...

    Yeah, I don't think we'll be hurting for OF, we've got Willingham, Doumit, Arcia, Parmelee, and Thomas, and if we really needed it Plouffe and Escobar can cover OF as well.

    My guess is Escobar...
