    I think the success the Cardinals are having with young pitchers should speak volumes to the Twins to get the young arms up here. May hopefully will be up in the next couple of weeks and Meyer...

    I think the Twins should listen on Dozier. If offer is good enough pull the trigger. Another tread showed the bust potential of any player to be about 80%. If you have 30 reasonably good prospect...

    Depends on the prospects, but do not see the Twins doing this. Dodgers would want a starting pitcher(Nolasco?) and at least one of the Twins top 5 and another probably top 20 prospect. Might look...

    Pohlad can give lip service to change, but he fired Bill Smith when it was suggested that the payroll go to about $130 million. Twins unless lucky will need a couple of outfielders for a 2 year term,...

    I thought the two pieces were very interesting. Pohlad is being a realist, but is he willing to commit the dollars to speed up the process. My best guess is that it will be 2017 before this current...

    Maybe this is not the spot for this discussion, but I view Dozier as a Brandon Phillips type, with more walks and maybe a little less defense. Is this good, yes, but in 3-4 years we will owe him a...

    Dozier has years of team control ahead, that is what makes him so valuable. Twins also have about 2 years before they are ready to contend. Moving a player now is a smart move. We need to see what...

    Suzuki, Perkins and Dozier, along with Willingham, Morales, Correria, and most of the rest of the relievers should all be on the block. Let's make a deal. TR's strength is identifying class A...

    This is very good for the Twins future. That is also why making trades for the right price could speed up the process. therefore Dozier should be front and center to be traded for the right deal. ...

    Trade should set a good benchmark for the Twins as the Cubs seem to be doing it the correct way. Twins need to take some chances and gain some top minor league prospects for 2016-2017. Best way to...

    Should be able to figure out where Parmelee fits in the next 2 weeks, rest is less certain. Much speedier move my the Twins than over the last few years, that is a good start.

    I believe Florimon is gone. Hope Polanco gets sent to New Britian as he deserves this promotion. You handle the rest internally, do not worry about organizational filler.

    Twins will have to do at least that well to compete for at least a wild card spot. Anything under .500 you call start the fire sale and bring up the kids for experience for next year.
