I'm predicting a 39-1 start to the season.

Willingham is 35. Will be 37 in 2016. He is already a bad OF. Do we really want to jam up the DH spot and give Gardy chances to continue to run him out to LF?
Signing Willingham to an...

Why would you project them to be better than 90 losses if you are anyone other than a Twins fan? We have improved 2 rotation spots and that is it.
If we add a couple of those hitters that have...

Even if it is a 1 year contract?
Oh ok, carry on. Thanks.
If we signed two guys and lost the 2nd and 3rd round picks, wouldn't we just be able to take someone risky in the 4th and pay a little
More to get them to sign rather than go to college? (Like...
I've jumped the gun too many times already on Buxton. He is still so young, I want to see how he does in AA before I say anymore about the kid. Holding him to Trouts path to the big leagues isn't...

In other words, more precaution should've taken place in July, perhaps recognized he needed to get surgery then, meaning he would be in his 6th month of recovery right now? If there were concerns...

If Sano does in fact have the surgery, it would be another strange scenario that would hand Plouffe more undeserved playing time. I say that and instantly look at a player who in many ways was in the...
Stephen Drew > Pedro Florimon.
But, this doesn't mean you hand over 12 million a year + a 2nd round pick.
Pedro Florimon + 12 million + 2nd round Pick > Stephen Drew
If you want to upgrade...

I said it, hah!

With Rajai Davis off the board, The Twins already have short-term CF options. Hicks and Pressly. Hicks could actually be an answer for that position until Buxton arrives. Don't give up on the guy. He...

Not sure how you could view it is anything other than good news if the Twins aren't calling to offer more years.
If we sign Garza and the deal is 3 years and 45 million, I'd be EXCITED.

Good move by TR.
I'd be content if we are done shopping, but hope for a trade for a SS or SP and sign a bat.

Everyone just stop about the money. It's truly about the roster spot, 40 man and 25 man. Doumit didn't hit well enough last year to deserve to be on it, considering the current level of the team. He...

I agree, he won't be cut. I disagree though and say he should be, if they sign Suzuki.
12-17-2013, 11:52 AM
There is money available I believe, but who is left worth signing for a bat? Suzuki isn't going to be expensive, Stephen Drew would be some of that money, but he costs a 2nd round pick in a "deep"...

It's odd that he hasn't signed yet. He should sign somewhere before the Tanaka frenzy begins. If Tanaka gets posted, Garza gets less money IMO. It's risky, because if Tanaka doesn't get posted, Garza...

If we sign Suzuki and intend on platooning him with Pinto, it makes even more sense to cut Doumit. Potentially we are looking at a roster of Doumit/Pinto/Suzuki/Kubel/Willingham/Parmelee for DH...
12-17-2013, 08:56 AM
As I just said, I'm okay with writing off Doumit period. He is not a part of this teams future after 2014. If he hits the crap out of the ball, he still won't be back, IMO.
12-17-2013, 08:55 AM
If Twins sign Suzuki, would you guys be upset if we just cut Doumit and kept Fryer on 40-man? Even though I think he is terrible, the Twins apparently do not. Knowing that, doesn't Fryer actually...
12-17-2013, 08:35 AM
Considering there are no big name free agents other than Garza left on the market that the Twins will go after that do not cost a 2nd round pick, it appears the Twins have left room to add a big FA...
Exactly. The only times would be at beginning of season, after All-Star break and at beginning of Post-Season. Also occasionally after an off-day, if you were to skip your fifth man, but how often...
PS it isn't changing anytime soon.
Worley and Deduno are more likely to be in Opening Day rotation than Diamond or Albers are. Also, The pitching prospects we have that are near the bigs, are RHP...
I'm actually perfectly fine with an entire rotation full of RHP.
Let me break this down for you:
As a generalization, Target Field has been a little harder on Left-handed hitters, correct? We...
