Agree, though I wouldn't describe that as the reason for him not being on the team now, in relation to Meyer.
But this is my least favorite argument ever for the types of prospects that Buxton,...

He just needs to break out his good old "Quick Swing" for a few weeks to get the mojo back, then he'll be fine...
I find the K-rate to be extremely disconcerting, however.
I would really like to see them get Brad Miller from the Mariners. I like him a lot. Is not a great defender, but would see him being similar to Bartlett in that regard (pretty average), and a...

Favorite Twin(s): Kyle Gibson or Trevor Plouffe at the moment. Kirby on an all-time scale.
Favorite Pizza: Meat Lovers

I think they would move him pretty fast if he shows anything close to what he was after being drafted. That's the big if with him, though.

I liked what I saw (briefly) from Travis down in Spring Training. Looked like a more contact oriented swing than I'd seen from him before.
Big fan of Nate's, I hope you are right! I think...

Rochester's opening day starter is Scott Diamond.
New Britain's is Pat Dean.

The only reason I didn't peg Stewart for the SP pick is he's not going to get a ton of innings, much like Berrios at CR last year. I do think he will dominate in the Midwest League though, and will...

I've honestly come to love the MiLB Opening Day more than the MLB one over the years, so today is going to be a fun one for me.
All the Twins' affiliates begin their seasons this afternoon/evening...

Haha, that wasn't a literal statement, but he's by far the #1 guy on my follow list this year!

You're probably right!
I will say to those who view the projections as too optimistic: A lineup with 1 guy hitting above .280 (per both mine and Seth's lists) is a terrible lineup. (But the...
Hicks and Gibson!

Dang, missed the only guy I care about this year! Be good to Max, iTwins!

Suzuki: .240/.290/.345 (even this is pretty optimistic, I think)
Pinto: .270/.320/.415, 12 HR's (like his track record enough to believe)
Mauer: .345/.425/.490, 16 HR's (fresher legs = somewhat of...
I think people read too many positives from AB Walker's season at Low-A last year. Frankly, I don't think he should have even been playing there with his college experience/success (he should have...
I would hope it's Deduno, but I think he'll be put in the 'pen to start the year. Once he's fully up to speed I would assume he'd be the first guy to takeover whatever SP spot opens up. I think...

Because we don't need a Second Baseman.
Don't kid yourself, Franklin can't play SS (or shouldn't, depending on the tone you like). I'd rather have Brad Miller from the Mariners. He's not a...
I don't know exactly how they determine "partial" or "full" tear diagnoses from the MRI, but when I tore my ACL I basically remember them coming to this conclusion because there we're markings...

Did you happen to stand by the guys on the radar guns for any of these guys at all? I just ask because when I've watched, I could tell a guy like Hermsen wasn't throwing as hard as others, and when...

This is actually something I would like to see the Twins do more of. There are reasons when it comes draft time you always see scouts/etc... talking about how such-and-such guy was "successful...

I've always thought May was going to be a reliever. He's likely going to get there via the Glen Perkins path (which is not a bad thing), but when he does (and on the route there), I think you'll see...

Nobody was allowed into the Red Sox Minor League area last year when we spent the day there. No idea if that's changed or is just a rule for certain days, but from what I remember you couldn't even...
I agree. Revere has the "quickness," but at the top end Hicks would overtake him.
I never liked the routes Revere took, but he was quick enough to make up for most of them.
Hicks has the...

And as Seth says, Kepler may be disappointing in the fact he's been in the system for so long already. But in that same breath, he's still only 20, which makes him younger than guys like Eddie...
