    Slightly preferred Jackson there but you can't be upset taking a talent like Gordon. Very excited for that young man's future.

    Travis has continued to play LF in recent games for the Miracle. Although it's still early in the season, the Twins are clearly letting him develop his fielding abilities as a corner OF. ...

    What kind of contract would you give Drew (mostly talking years...)? Do you think he will sustain his talent long enough to be a real piece of the Twins once we are a contender? (think 2016-beyond)....

    Perhaps Suzuki is better defensively, but I am far more interested in evaluating young talent that is part of the future. I would hope Pinto would get to work on defense behind the plate in the...

    Really? We don't have a ton of cash tied up in future payrolls. I would have to think one of the chief benefits of this would be the ability to retain our own homegrown talent. Neither one of these...

    This is a reasonable move. I'd much rather have Pelfrey at 2/11 than Colon at 2/20. Pitchers coming back from TJ are always questionable, but Pelfrey had a strong second half of the year. If you look...
