    It's never that simple. It is nice to have minor league that can set an example an mentor younger players. Also, it seems reasonable that the FO is planning on having an at AAA very soon. Let's...

    Mike and Jokin just summed up the good and the bad of Suzuki quite succinctly
    in just two posts. I would add that Suzuki has changed his approach (late in his career) and that change has made him...

    Hick's last 10 games are pretty encouraging.

    Ave. 406 OBP .500 SLG .563 OPS 1.063

    I put this together about a week ago when someone made an off-hand comment about the Twins being cheap. I presumed the more likely case was they were acting in a manner consistent with the data they...

    Extending Perkins was a bit of a head scratcher for me. I would have traded him last year. Of course, this assumes a suitable return could have been obtained and that may not have been the case. ...

    It's a lot easier to list the players on the 25 man I would not trade.

    Hughes
    Gibson
    Arcia
    Santana
    Dozier and I would consider trading him if the return was high enough

    I agree. That's why I am thinking it will be possible to get a pretty good return in the next month. I guess the point his that his value is highest at 3rd base so from an asset management...

    I could see giving Romeo a shot just in case we got a good offer for Plouffe at the deadline. It would be nice to get an idea of what we could expect. Then again, maybe we keep Plouffe long-term as...

    It is becoming easier to understand their frustration with him. Maybe he needed to hit rock bottom. I am still hoping the kid can get it together. Heck, right now I would be satisfied to see him...

    IMO volume of content is not relevant. These topics are of interest to all of us and we all have opinions. Therefore, much is written. Nothing wrong with exploring what our favorite team is...

    Sure, ride this out. It is good for the present and great for the future if he can prove he belongs at this level. We have a guy that has really learned how to pitch through a long MiLB career. ...

    I recall that "flipping" a free agent in this way was a concern and I have to agree. That tactic has a price long-term. For this and other reasons, now is not the time to trade Hughes.

    I could...

    That makes no sense to me. With a little polish Santana looks like he will be a great SS and with a little more plate discipline, a great lead-off hitter. Plus, he can be your back-up CF when...

    Hicks needs to learn to hit RH against RH pitching in the minors for the rest of the year. I would think Rosario has a better chance of being our CF next year. Maybe they move Rosario to AAA for...

    It is not a matter of "not blinking an eye". It is a matter of perspective. Some of us look around the league and see that teams who are not in the top 10 in terms of revenue have down cycles and...

    The bottom line is none of this is really hurting the Team. It cost the owners some money but that is the extent of the problem. Next year, use him in long relief or 7th inning RP or not at all. I...

    Anyone care to guess which of the 2-9 picks our favorite team will attempt to convert to a starter?

    Good point regarding the comparison of Span and Hick's OBP!

    I think you missed the point. Those people like many here feel they were qualified to judge competence of those doing a job they are not qualified to hold. Anyone who has not run 100M+ firms or...

    It takes a substantial skill set and a great deal of experience to be qualified to conclude the FO is incompetent. Hey, this is the internet and everyone is welcome to an opinion but the insistence...

    Apparently you have forgotten what happened last year. We all love seeing this level of productivity. That is why there is some concern that Arcia is still demonstrating very little discipline. ...

    I think you have it backwards. By this I mean that fandom tends to create a form of analysis and opinion that would be firmly rejected in a profession environment. The fandom affect is much more...

    It would be a great move if they could get value for Colabello but I seriously doubt that happens until he proves he can handle the adjustments teams/pitchers are making.
