    I would have selected Sam Gibbons and his 11 Ks as the pitcher of the day. Meyers pitched well but had a lot of walks in 6 innings.

    Escobar has been one of my favorite players this season. All he does is hit and play great defense. How many doubles does he have now? If I were selecting a mid-season Twins MVP, I might be tempted...

    Joe Mauer, double play, yawn.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this elsewhere, but I have to believe that Pino, if he pitches well, would be a trade piece. His numbers at AAA are fantastic, but he's not going to fetch much as...

    Oswaldo's screw up led to the first run of the game and to the last one. Plus, he was hitless in the series. He's one of my favorite players on the team, but ick and ish and any other words anyone...

    Great job by Guerrier. Awesome job. I cannot believe he could do it, but a tip of the cap to him.

    Sooner or later you have to pitch to Cabrera and to Martinez rather than pitching scared. The Twins definitely need another effective, come at you reliever like Fien and Perkins. Think about the...

    Anybody know how many outs Mauer has had like that this season? It used to work, but it rarely does anymore. Too bad he is not comfortable pulling the ball.

    The son of former Twin's relief pitcher Mark Guthrie was the Twins' last selection. He is a ss, and he has a commitment to U of Florida.

    One thing I have noticed so far is that the Twins have yet to draft a catcher. Normally that position is a priority with the Twins on draft day, but they have a backlog at the position. Have they...

    Any word on top draft choices Bard and Chargois? Didn't Chargois have his Tommy John over a year ago?

    Please accept my pardon if someone has made the following point already. One way to look at the draft is to contextualize it in terms of the current top 10 Twins prospects (I'm only counting guys...

    Melky Mesa was just acquired by the Blue Jays along with TWins' old friend, P. J. Walters. For cash! Now, trade for Melky with the Jays.

    Mauer is really playing average baseball this season. 2 strikeouts today. His average is around .280, and he only has 14 rbis. He certainly is not playing like a superstar. I hope he starts playing...

    Didn't Gibson recently give up a homer (not last game) after something did not go as hoped in the field? I make be confusing Gibson with another starter, but it seemed to me it was him.

    I would hope that Hudson Boyd learns to be a strong starting pitcher, and I Hope Harrison adds more poser and at least 25 points to his batting average. The other breakout player needs to be Corey...

    About a month and a half ago Patrick Reusse published an article on the Twins' International signings, and if I remember correctly, there were at least 8 or 9 names of players he listed that the...

    I agree with Mike. Trade Dozier while his value is so high. Look at Plouffe two years ago. 24 home runs. Trade Dozier for pitching much as Span and Revere were traded. Put Beresford at 2nd base for...

    A similar argument to the one Thrylos can be made for Baxendale who dominated A+ ball and was only so-so in his promotion to New Britain. One could argue that Rogers' numbers at Fort Meyers also...

    Here's my observation (call it a pipe dream if you will). The Twins do the following this offseason:
    1. Draft a lively armed starting pitcher who can be kept on the roster in the pen as long man(no...

  23. Ryan's Trade Approach

    Shane, thanks for raising this topic. My sense of how Ryan works is not to acquire AAA or AA players in return because their value is not going to be that great. Remember when the Twins acquired...

    I'm excited for the Twins to play the Orioles I guess. So, one more against the Tigers. Gardy's guys need to extend the momentum and win the first series of the season against Leyland's club.

    I agree that Correa is the player of the game, but one guy who deserves mention as offensive player of the last couple of innings is Trevor Plouffe who drew two walks--he scored on one and Carroll...
