    Pryor was probably going to be the guy Seattle DFAed to make room for Morales but I say it is a worthwhile flyer, maybe give him some time in September.

    On this we agree. The Twins are making decisions regarding Meyer based completely on what is beneficial for him and his long term development, not based upon fanciful notions that they might compete...

    Apparently going to work out of the pen. If the Twins were desperately trying to hold on to being competitive Meyer would be up in the pen too. They have wisely determined they aren't going to make...

    I certainly think the Twins should call up Meyer before the end of the year. I also think that if the Twins were competitive right now he would already be up in the pen. Since they are not, they have...

    I have answered this and I don't especially want to keep hijacking a Dozier thread, but I'll answer again.

    It has nothing to do with age, it has to do with the fact that Meyer has two specific...

    Great post. This complaint always struck me as so much narrative over any actual facts.

    I still think he should have been replaced two years ago, but not for this reason. And I actually think he...

    As I said - 2012 was a good draft. And Sickels ranks Correa higher, but BA, Law, mlb do not agree. I'll stay with the majority and say they whiffed on the top player. But it was a good draft, Correa...

    What actions?

    He knows he is planning on calling up but isn't going to announce it until he has to in case circumstances change. Isn't that being prudent?

    I understand criticizing the eventual...

    All rookies don't come up and immediately perform at peak level. What more proof do you need?

    It was his first start in 4 weeks, I imagine he had a pretty strict pitch count.

    Catching is a different animal.

    And yes, players can come up and plug a position for a stretch of games. Parmelee played a game in CF and it didn't kill the Twins. But this analysis is based over...

    I don't think the handling of those three prove anything one way or the other, certainly not that it is the Twins MO to hold people down long after they have proven to be ready. There is plenty of...

    If they both came up today they wouldn't technically be rookies but I would consider them so for the point I am making. It puts excessive strain on a staff to have two guys without the innings built...

    Starting pitcher, corner bat, catcher, extension for Dozier. I'm not sure if this will get them back to the same payroll as this season.

    I don't think it is misleading to point out they guaranteed...

    Perfectly fine stopgap while cheap and waiting for Sano. I suspect Plouffe won't be in his way once Sano is ready.

    I was on the move Plouffe to LF idea, but the reality is that he just doesn't hit...

    If a kid enrolls in a 4 year college, he needs to spend three years there before he is eligible to be drafted (there are some draft eligible sophs who are older when they start school).
