    He should keep playing. Resigning should be only in case of a scandal or something.

    / or, if a manager's team has stopped hitting

    This is a very quick boring game. But at least Deduno is pitching well again. Do the Yankees have a lot of good prospects coming up or will they need to sign FAs again?

    I forgot it was a day game! Turned on the game just in time to see Florimonster get caught stealing.

    I thought we would be losing by more than this already.

    So, they pitched through the 6th inning without imploding, huh?

    So if by some chance this year's Twins (current roster) get "blown" up by management for a complete overhaul, who stays as the core, who would you probably keep, and who goes if they price is even close to being right?

    Keepers -- Gibson, Hicks, Arcia, Perkins

    Maybe keep -- Mauer, Plouffe, Thielbar, Diamond, Fien, Parmalee

    Available --everybody else

    I will now crawl into my foxhole and put on my helmet to shield myself from incoming fire.

    Did it sound like the game came back from commercial break and Coomer was in the middle of eating something and continued to do so through the duration of his mid-game recap?

    Mauer is a keeper without a doubt.

    You can look around other threads at TD for more serious discussion of this, but just for fun here, I'll add that Perkins and Plouffe are under discussion in a full "blow up" mode because they potentially could gain high-end but not-ready talent in return. Mauer, among your maybes, seems difficult to move for various reasons, unless he gets fed up and demands a trade.

    A tie is almost winning for this team.

    I guess I'm just so used to typing "losing". Muscle memory, I guess.

    That option is not in Gardy's managing for dummies book.

    They really need Perkins in the 8th.

    Get through the 8th and see where they stand.

    I never thought I'd be impressed with a bunt. Good job, Hicksie.

    So the Yankees can get people out by trowing ball at base runners now?
