Wow. I am amazed that so much angst can be generated over the decision to keep one bad player over one of two other bad players. This decision deserved to be met with one large, collective yawn.

Doesn't this actually mean that BOTH Bartlett and Colabello will make the 25-man roster, since Gardy has already said he will only take 12 pitchers North?

Ok, Ok, let's not get hysterical here. None of the three players in question--Parmelee, Presley, Bartlett--is good, so while choosing Bartlett over the other two is a mild surprise, it hardly...

I like all of your position players assumptions except for Mastro--I think Hicks earns another trip North out of Spring Training. As for the pitching, it's too early to worry about what to do with...

Get within shouting distance of .500 while seeing 3-5 young players advance and solidify themselves as everyday players or rotation locks for the foreseeable future.
While I would be mildly surprised, I would not be crazy shocked to see the Twins add Garza or Arroyo to the mix at this point. It sounds like we are willing to meet Garza's asking price per year,...

Thanks, Seth! Sounds like Gilmartin was on the fast-track in the Atlanta system before the injury last year. I think this is a great pickup in exchange a guy with limited value (bench bat & backup...
I like Pelfrey on a two-year deal for (relatively) cheap. The seond half aof last season he had the highest velocity (94-95) and so/9 (7.1) of his career, showing that there is definitely potential...

Definitely looks like we are exhausting possibilities for a poor-man's ace/#2 before settling for Pelfrey, which is good. I can't believe it now looks like 3/$36 for Arroyo, according to latest...
3/$27M is VERY reasonable, but I doubt he signs for that. My guess is 2/$24M from the Sox.

Hmm . . . seems like the Twins could have beaten that offer w/out seriously impacting the farm system. Curious.

I'm fine with not getting Rajai Davis, especially on a 2-yr. deal. Let's let Hicks, Presley and Mastro fight it out as place holders until Buxton is ready, since we aren't likely to be in contention...

This is very well stated. Obviously, if Maurer and Taylor were GUARANTEED to put of those WAR numbers over the next 5 years, this would be a great deal for the Twins, but since Maurer actually put...
Theilbar??? What did you not like about his 1.76 ERA in 49 appearances last year? Seems like we would want to see him actually give up some runs at the Major League level before we DFA him?

Hmm . . . I had always heard positive accounts of Cruz as a "clubhouse guy" and teammate, so I did a little searching after reading your post, and again, all positives. Can you post a link to...
We'll have to agree to disagree on Hughes. For what it's worth, Steve Adams at mlbtraderumors has done a pretty good job with FA contract projections, and he just predicted 1/$8M for Hughes. I do...
1. Sign Kazmir 3/$35-40M
2. Sign Hughes or Feldman @ 2/$20M
