  1. Gotta be happy for Hicks...but...heres what I would do with him....

    Pitch batting practice to him at only one pitch..fastball below his knees...he would have to prove he could hit that and WOULD hit that..before he plays again..how many? 100 a day or more..even if he has to have his own batting practice...I just cant believe with two strikes he can not tell that this pitch might be called a strike...also I would prep him that when he has two strikes SWING at the next pitch...not to say other twins arent guilty too..Colabello for one has struck out on multiple ...

  2. The Fireballing Michael Tonkin...

    When I watch twins relievers, Tonkin is by far the weakest. He supposedly can throw in the high 90's so why is he trying to get people out with off speed stuff?

    BC..his heater with little movement is getting smashed!

    His wind up is so open, he doesn't fool anybody, the pitch comes out..and the hitters see it..clearly and teach him a lesson. His stuff..(fastball) allowed him to get by in lower minors..but Michael guess what? You aren't in Kansas anymore dude..just because ...

  3. Minor League/Major League Salary Question

    How do salaries work when a player is called up? I assume, Santana for example, is now making the MLB minimum 400K? If he is sent back down, does his salary revert to minor league? And how much is that for a player like Santana?

    thanks in advance

  4. Loving the New Gardy..

    Wow Gardy is no longer in love with the Mendoza line! Love todays lineup, Gardy is desperately trying to get some hitting in the lineup..absolutely love Santana being in, love Parmalee call up...love ANYBODY is spelling Kubel for a bit..(he will rebound)

    One thing concerning..is Pinto finally starting to hit again..but sitting..but Suzuki is Superman!..I know the cape will tear eventually..but loving seeing him fly!

  5. Shortstop found, Johnson not viable...cf?

    Escobar clearly took command of shortstop, will he continue to hit? Not at that rate for sure..but at least he gives you the possibility of making contact...

    Kris Johnson? No Way.. Wait for Jose....

    CF? I really like Fuld but History suggests...He will falter...Trade a AA prospect for established CF? I certainly wouldnt put all my eggs in The Buxton Basket

  6. Rosario Selfish and Reckless...Twins should sever ties...

    Do I understand this correctly? Eddie Rosario a top prospect for the MN Twins, smoked pot KNOWING..he could be tested for illegal substances?

    I wont engage in the merits or dangers of smoking MJ. However if you have the world in front of you and YOU HAVE TO SMOKE WEED...isn't is just a matter of time before your character catches up with you? I have to believe it is....

    I think this shows long term weakness and once he comes back if he puts up great numbers..I urge the ...

  7. Noworleyasko

    How long will Nolasco be allowed to damage twins? I think the answer is for a long time. He looked terrible today. Last year Gardy continued to pitch Worley, even though it was apparent that meant a certain loss. So hopefully Mrs. Colabellos son will keep saving these pitchers but how long can that last?

    Col..will slump sometime..then ruh roh...

  9. Fuld should start in Center...

    I was so hoping the Twins would pick him up. I was thrilled in hearing the news of his acquisition, He will be an upgrade to Aaron Hicks in every way. Fuld can immediately bat lead off and we wont have to see the huge Hicks look terrified to play. Hicks might have the physical tools.but I dont think he has the mental tools..there is no pressure on him, that is until now.

    Gardy please start Fuld on Tuesday, bat him lead off..and let him play himself out of position. Its ok with me ...

  10. The one Deduno Strategy that would make sense....

    Gardy might just be as stupid as a fox. First if you have read my posts in the past, you know I am the President of the Sam Deduno fan club..(is there one?)

    First you have all this money in starting Rotation and you have Gibson who surprisingly has performed very well..but you also know Deduno is filthy and can beat ANY body..yes, Yankees you heard me right!...

    As much as I love Deduno, I have to admit a problem with him Late in the last two seasons.he has come up lame...so ...

  11. The funny thing about Gardy and Bartlett

    When Bartlett was just coming up and had talent, Gardenhire constantly jerked his chain, he couldnt do anything right, Bartlett proved he could play with the Rays...and now, a washed up Bartlett who cant play, makes the team....oh well give those kids some at bats in the minors..I guess...

  12. Deduno to Korea!

    Thats what I would do if I were Sam What else has he got to do? He was the teams best starter last year he would be no worse than number 2 this year..

    AND Gibson was horrible last year, only hype saved him. I dont get this, I guess the bright light is..Deduno is in the bull pen for one reason, when there is a hiccup in the rotation and there will be..Sam will be there to save us again.

  13. Mauer Playing First Base Hurts Twins

    Obviously you want Joe in the lineup wherever you can get him. The problem is he is playing the one position we can reserve for far less talented players.

    Colabello should come North, but where do you play him? Yes he can DH, but why wouldnt you put Mauer in the outfield or 3b, talk about competition for Plouffe...Another issue now with Sanos arm, can he play 3b? He might have to play first...yes I keep Joe in line up no matter what, but we are wasting him at 1b

  14. What the Twins Really Should do with Rotation

    First I will say AGAIN, Deduno is the best starter on this team. Nolasco might be as good, Hughes certainly isnt, what the Twins really should do, is dump Correia, can a Diamond, Gibson, Gilmartin, Johnson choice be worse than Correia? I highly doubt it...yes there would be uncertainty but you prefer an automatic loss?
