    Aside fromMeyer – I don’t think they are any better than a year ago. Here are their career minor #’s: (Age)ERA/WHIP/K9
    May (24): 4.07/1.36/10.73
    Johnson(29): 4.38/1.46/6.36...

    Can I ask where you pull your data from/filters? I just ran a comparison from Baseball Cube, 2009-2013 MLB:

    ERA: Jackon 4.13/Correia 4.45
    WHIP: Jackson 1.35/Correia 1.37
    Innings: Jackson...

    3rd base is only one hole on this squad. Use the same positional WAR comparison for all other positions on this team. You'll find we are set at catcher (assuming Mauer's there). Dozier/Floriman...

    Arm Trouble

    I read Deduno has a sore arm now. It got me thinking about this year...from memory:

    Nick Blackburn who had an outside shot at making the rotation has been hurt all year.

    Cole Defries who...

    Wow. Seems like a pretty good deal for the Twins. I wonder where he'll be ranked on the Twins Prospect list? We are starting to collect some decent (ranked) arms at the lower levels: Kohl...

    I'd be surprised if Albers is even part of the team next year. I think he's a good story right now, but I'm clearly not the only one who thinks MLB hitters will eventually catch up to that 85 mph...

    True. But you can record an out with one pitch and a strike out takes a minimum of 3 (usually many more). Also you can record 2 outs when a ball is put in play (i.e. grounder to short) far more...

    I'm the first one to remind people not to get carried away regarding Berrios but you seem to be disregarding him because he hasn't played at a high enough level yet. He has really good stats AND he...

    LOL - yeah.....because we all know that there has never been a case where an 18 year old dominated rookie ball and then flamed out at higher levels. That was the point - a lot can happen between...

    Meh. I think these type of prospect ranking lists are purely for entertainment and don't mean too much to me. What's the criteria? Based on what they've done in the minors up to now? Based on...

    I don't know.....you can't really put it on the player to say if he's pitching or not. That's why you pay your medical staff. Players are an investment beyond one season. There should be some sort...

    Grrr. I was a huge Plouffe booster the last couple of years. I just wanted them to pick a position (anywhere!) and leave him alone for 400 ABs to see what he can do. Finally....he gets his shot...

    But then Souhan suggests that Ryan is going to be around long term? Ryan's quotes make it sound like he views this as a project (to turn things around) rather than an ongoing job. All I can figure is...

    Agreed. I was pretty surprised to see the 30th overall pick in last year's draft already showing up as "a bust". I took the article with a grain of salt. Yeah, he's disappointed this year. But at...

    You gotta let it go man. Slama does not appear to be part of their plans. Some of the other guys mentioned have done fine. Fien has actually been very good. Robertson has been a great situational...

    It seems like everyone is making this a “Slama vs. Gray” debate. It’s not. Slama was removed from the 40 man last year – long before Gray came along. Any team could have claimed Slama last year. ...

    Because the money they'll pay Baker is far less than what they'd have to pay a guy who isn't coming off a major injury. I'd rather see them go after a Sanchez/Marcum/Jackson guy and sign Baker than...

    To expand on why I don't think signing Baker is a good idea....I don't think this team will be competing for a title next year. So, signing Baker for one year w/incentives is just throwing $ at...

    The way I view next year's rotation is:

    1.) Free Agent. They don't have anyone close to being a #1 guy right now. Most expect a veteran "innings eater" guy
    2.) Diamond. This is a stretch as...

    I don't think that's a certainty at all. I'm rooting for Plouffe. But if you look at his month by month game logs, he had a red hot June and half of July until he got hurt. I don't think a hot...

    I wisg they would have given him more time at AAA before activating him. Plouffe had finally found a home at 3rd before he got hurt. Hopefully he just needs more ABs to get his timing back. If he...
