    Eh, I think he's still a prospect. The chances of him ever being a long-term roster solution drop to virtually zero but given that he's left-handed and had a history of being a control guy, he's still in the mix.

    It doesn't take much for a lefty to continue being a prospect because they're so in demand on a typical MLB roster. If Gilmartin was a righty, I'd agree with you. He'd be a non-prospect at 86mph.

    Seth, you always look for the best in prospects. I'm not the slightest bit surprised that you disagree.

    At some level, you need to almost blindly accumulate top starting pitching prospects because the burn rate is so high. For our favorite team, 5 is scary, 10 is about right, and 15 is an abundance of riches. I've heard both Brad Pitt and Andy MacPhail say they use roughly a 3 to 1 ratio. Three top starting pitching prospects, yields one solid major league starter.

    Great deal for the Twins. Doumit was the epitome of a boring Twins year last year to me--not only was he terrible, but I have nothing invested in him as a fan either (unlike Plouffe or Parm or Colabello, etc., who you're interested to see if they develop to any extent), so he is a guy that I have wanted gone for a while now. As Gleeman and the Geek said this week, he has negative value for the Twins, so just being able to dump his salary is great, and on top of that, they grabbed a nice lottery ticket. Gilmartin probably won't ever amount to anything, but that's ok. Any value will ever give the Twins is a bonus.
