  1. Will the real Twins please stand up?

    This has been a strange year for the Twins. I don't know if most realize it but take a couple of horrendous stretches out that amount to about 3 weeks of games and the Twins are 8 games over .500. The Twins had a 10 game losing streak and another where they lost 11 out of 12. So which team are they closer to be being? The one that was gawd-awful for 3 weeks or the one that has been pretty decent about 85% of the time? If a hitter was batting .290 for the season but that was done by batting .250 ...

  2. Sano's first contract

    I wrote this article in June right after Sano was promoted to AA. Even though I clearly state that this was a conversation for next March IF Sano did well in AA, it was still ridiculed by a few short sighters. I wanted to repost and see what everyone thinks now.


    "Now that Sano is in New Britain I thought we start speculating on how the Twins should handle him. I would love to see the Twins be proactive with him like the Rays were with Longoria. I think you go this agent ...

  3. Wimmers, Bard and Chargois

    Any update on any of these 3? I am starting to get worried about Bard especially. In over a year as a professional he has thrown 7 innings. I hope that Wimmers can follow the Gibson recovery plan and can get back on the mound for a hand full of starts this year and then go to the AZL.

  4. Why is Buxton still in CR?

    I wasn't upset last week when Buxton wasn't promoted because I thought it made sense. The Kernels hadn't clinched until the middle of the week and then when they did it was too late. Fort Myers was off all weekend for the Florida St All Star Game. Why would you promote somebody so they could sit around all weekend. Then when you had to wait till Monday you might as well as let him play in the all star game. I kept waiting all day yesterday to hear news about the promotion. Still waiting. ...

  5. Twins should be proactive with Sano and his contract

    Now that Sano is in New Britain I thought we start speculating on how the Twins should handle him. I would love to see the Twins be proactive with him like the Rays were with Longoria. I think you go this agent next Spring and offer something like this.

  6. Twins top 10 prospects 2014

    First we need to decide who will drop off the list after this season. Hicks and Gibson are locks to lose their prospect status. I also think Arcia will play enough games this year for the Twins to no longer be a prospect. So that opens 3 spots on the top 10. I also needed to account for a player or 2 not playing wel and dropping (see Benson, Joe). Speaking of Benson, I also think he is going to spend a large chunk of the season at Target Field an no longer be considered a prospect. So I needed ...

  7. How happy would we be

    I was looking at several current and fromer players to see who some of our top prospects would compare to, maybe get a glimpse of what they might look like in a few years if everything went right. Would an infield featuring Adrian Beltre (Sano) and Robinson Cano (Rosario) excite you? How about an outfield Devon White, Magglio Ordonez, Kenny Lofton and Shawn Green

    Now Beltre made the majors at 19 and was full time in the majors for his age 20 season. Beltre is about 2 ...
