    I think it is a myth that the Twins have a logjam at #5 or too much pitching. The rotation is improved and it has some depth (primarily Gibson and a late season Meyer) but it's still pretty shaky. ...

    Over his last 3 years, Correia has averaged 170 IP in the majors, and a 4.37 ERA. While there is nothing that is earth shatterning about those numbers, and his strike outs etc aren't in the least bit...

    I read somewhere I think that the same area scout who drafted Buxton is overseeing the scouting effort on Turner, but of course numerous scouts will study him.

    Now, if one insists on crediting...

    No it is dumb to bring up in every freaking thread. This thread is about if the Twins should sign Drew and/or Morales, and it is pretty clear that the Twins have the budget to do so. They have enough...

    The problem with the Twins lineup is that there aren't many good position players available. Really, there's Drew and that's about it (which is why I'd like to see them pursue him). I don't blame...

    Santana is coming off what could easily be a career year for him. Just two years ago, he was a pretty awful pitcher.

    It seems to me that we should be pleased that the Twins made this effort. It sounds like they are still trying to upgrade for this year, and willing to spend some money to do this.

    I understand your frustration, but decent depth doesn't come out of a microwave. The Morneau for Johnson deal--and the patience to make it happen--is one example of the Twins' commitment to build...
