    Thank you, comparing the Twins to Houston was just something impossible not to think about after reading that report.

    Quite possibly, though I think they are better equipped to be immediate impact players. Meyer/May may need more time to adjust just because they are pitchers.

    May be the right move in the long...

    I'd be curious, without needing specifics mind you, to hear how similar things are behind the curtain as what we saw unveiled from Houston.

    But I'd totally understand if that was a taboo thing to...

    I'm pretty sure the standard of 100% ready isn't real for any player on any team. It's an inexact science.

    Disappointing, I wanted them to get their taste ala Gibson last year. It's hard not to see this news as likely setting the Twins' window back another year at least.

    All part of prospect growth. Glad it's happening now and not next year.

    Surprising and risky from Boston. Just goes to show how unpredictable things can be though.

    I'm not necessarily dogging the Twins alone, I am using an asinine remark by Gardenhire in this example to illustrate the problem. We can certainly get away from glorifying it as "old school", that...

    We need to get away from nostalgia deals, this season should've been a fine lesson in that.

    While this is very true, I think there is a happier medium between marveling at a guy for being "old school" for not reporting injuries and wanting people to constantly check themselves out of action.

    Even with the negatives about this offseason, Suzuki and Hughes represent enormously positive accomplishments for the front office this offseason.

    To a degree, yes, you are sometimes going to have older placeholders. The problem is this team rarely targets younger players/castoffs to fill those roles and it couples that with giving multi-year...

    To the team's credit they have seemed more willing than in the past to do this. Still, when you given the Correias, Pelfreys, Willinghams, etc. 2 or 3 year deals they no longer serve the role of...
  15. It is an indicator, it's not foolproof,...

    It is an indicator, it's not foolproof, especially when the roster is young. Now foolproof? That's a roster getting OLDER during a rebuild - that's a guarantee you haven't turned the corner yet.

    Fuld is in his 30s. The rest I can't speak for when you decide to assign my argument to a hundred other posters and their griping habits as a scarecrow.
  17. And this is another great way to say what I am. ...

    And this is another great way to say what I am. The age of the roster during a rebuild does matter and does give a strong indication of the rebuild's progress. I'd also much rather roll the dice...

    The likelihood of it accelerating the rebuild are slim if you have a bunch of AAAA players or failed prospects. (Not your own players, no one wants anyone rushed - just guys that are younger)

    That's very true, I'd just like our administration to be a bit more brave and daring. Especially when there is so little to lose.

    Honestly? 90 losses and a 100 is a moot difference. And they wouldn't have had to play their AA players, they could've gambled on a bunch of DFA, non-tendered, AAAA players who all would've likely...

    Here's the sad part...the three catchers jokes are all well and good and deserved....but Chris Hermann may be the only logical choice to call up. We're that shallow offensively.

    And, to me,...

    Sure, he had some upside. But he's not young and it was extremely limited, especially given what he demonstrated in ST. And I would credit Gilmartin as a fine gamble. There haven't been enough of...

    This is HIGHLY frustrating. You have shifted the argument so many times you forgot what you responded to in the first place. The point is that they are NOT winning and they are not young. When the...
