    I always supported Hendricks and wanted him to succeed. Back in the early 1980's I was part of a Marine Corps Expeditionary Force and we were practicing Desert Storm before there was Desert Storm....

    I see Wilkins as an outfielder that is stashed at Rochester in the event of an Injury. I see no clear path to him making the roster.

    I remember well the struggles Tori Hunter went through before he finally stuck in the show. Hicks ability to have good at bats deteriorated as he struggled with MLB Pitching. If I was the manager I...

    I cannot imagine the Twins extending him. It is all down hill from here given his age and recent injuries. There is always a need for that veteran bat off the bench, but that is a luxury a contending...

    Nice lineup. I love your optimism. One note: Arcia belongs in leftfield and Hicks in right. Need to take advantage of Hicks' range and great arm. Also, I suggest getting rid of Willingham. Kubel...

    Making the list and making it and staying in the show are two different things.

    For a team to be greater than the sum of its parts it needs players who are more concerned about the team than their own situation or stats. Pelfrey is demonstrating leadership in taking Meyers under...

    I do not know if one can really say that. KLaw did rank the Twins system as number two and that doesn't sound like hating to me. Now having said that I do think he is a bit full of himself and does...

    I have been a die hard Twins fan since 1965 when a team of Twins coaches came to my home town of Minot ND and in the old cement ballpark with a 500' centerfield fence game us a skills clinic. I was...
  16. Patience, Patience, Patience

    This article is soooo true. How many times was Tori Hunter sent back to the minors before he finally matured as a player to stick with the big club - 2-3? As with all sports patience is required when...
  17. If i recall.....

    I remember a time when they did run prospects to the big show as quickly as possible. Realizing this predates the current regime, but Calvin Griffith purged his roster in 1981 and 1982 and brought...
