    Assuming $30 isn't your life savings :), it's just a fun thing to do.

    As for whether you're an idiot, I don't know you well enough -- but Mark DeRosa is telling me to go ahead and vote yes.

    I think what would change the nature of the Twins would be finding 6 of 8 fielders who can field and hit above major league average.

    A few years ago me and my buddies were walking along at the State Fair, and we came across the Giant Yellow Slide -- a towering three level structure that is a central fixture at the...

    Just a couple thoughts in response:

    1.) Has anyone really ever called Kevin Correia an Ace? He was the Twins best pitcher (arguably) last year, but no one puts him in the "ace" category.
    2.) We...

    Perhaps this was mentioned in the last dozen or so posts that I skipped past, but what about a double switch?

    Pinto in for Florimon and Escobar in for Suzuki.

    Of course, I would immediately...

    I don't see it as "pessimism" to expect the most probable outcome. That's realism.

    The bigger issue is that, even putting aside the various prospect setbacks, having a highly-rated farm system...

  9. The Surprisingly Simple Solution to the 25th man question

    I have nothing against Parmelee or Collabello, however neither bring much to the team other than a decent bat at best, no defense, no speed, no intangibles. They need to use that 25th spot on a guy...

    Coworker of mine told me that we'd have better weather in March than we did in February. But there it goes snowing again, and it's been cold. I guess by some metrics it was more temperate, but it was...

    Also, it's just flat out insulting.

    Frankly, I have a hard time with anyone who feels optimism is a requirement to be a "real fan". I don't think it's fair to throw a criticism like that around just because people are taking a sober...

    Woah, a guy can dream I guess, but let's not get all starry-eyed with the optimism. :)

    Exactly, and I'd guess two or maybe three of those guys will be in Rochester on March 31, meaning the whole "stepping up" conversation is a load.

    Also, ripping Hicks is just insane to me. He was...

    Sure John. They can all sit in the minors for months. You really think they'll cut/trade 4-5 veterans in the middle of the year, and bring up youth? Does any team turn over that much of their roster...

    At least five players are likely to have their statistical rookie seasons in 2015 - Buxton, Sano, Meyer, Rosario and Santana. At least three of these will be among the most heralded Twins rookies...

    I'd keep Segura. Great value in the 24th round. Quality outfielders are easier to find than quality 2nd basemen. Don't want to get stuck with Brian Dozier ha
