My Rule 5 Pick

Posted by huhguy , 06 December 2016 · 1,196 views

Community Blog Post
There are some real intriguing arms in this draft. With Falveys guidance, I think there is a good chance the Twins strike gold in this draft. That said, i want to explain my choice and the one I hope the Twins will make.

There are probably at least five arms to look at and all of them have their different merits. Can we all agree that the Twins will n...

Hunter Greene - Why wouldnt this work?

Posted by huhguy , 09 October 2016 · 944 views

Community Blog Post
Its interestng to see a player who could be drafted as a position player or a pitcher....Why dont we draft Greene, play him at 3b/ss and use him as a reliever as well? This would be a great boon to the roster, you wouldnt have to carry an extra pitcher, when you bring him into pitch, you insert your utility infielder....feedback please

Have you noticed that Wheeler has been dominating, but seems to be an after thought with the Twins?

Twins cant win with Sano at 3b

Twins dodge another bullet today as Sano bungles 3b again

So you wanted Sano at third?

After watching Sano just drop a pop up that any little leaguer would have caught, it is time for me to comment.

TRUTH Sano is a better outfielder than a 3b, you clamored for a trade of Plouffe, then for Sano to move to 3b, what now brown cow?

IF Sano is ever to play the field, the only position for him is currently occupied....by a horrible contract.....

An announcer worse than Gladden?

Community Blog Post
Ok, I was wrong, I thought Dan Gladden was the worst announcer in baseball, but go listen to Palkas first homerun for Rocjester....I will give you some idea...Palka at Plate, kills the ball..announcer, says, this game is going to be tied.. then says ADAM BRETT WALKER (a black right handed hitter) Palka is a white left handed hitter, has tied the game u...

This just in...Sano can play of

I know I am going to get my come comeuppance on this topic. I am impressed with Sano in OF, his instincts speak of playing a skill position for most of his life. Does Sano make mistakes? Bad mistakes? Uh..Yeah he does and has, and wil in the future. His bat justifies his existence in the of.

I know many of you have clamored for him to be at 3B, but...

2b - Nobody
3b- Nobody
SS - Escobar, Nunez
LF -Nobody
CF- Buxton

Pitcher - Nobody

Thats a really pathetic evaluation. This shows how poor Ryan and Staff evaluate talent. When you look a...

Time to blow up the Twins...

Lets face reality.... The Twins Organization...does not know how to evaluate talent....Thats the number 1-3 problem.

Terry Ryan...(i have been a defender of him in the past) got a lot of credit for the Nathan trade, developing J Santana etc...but who the heck has he drafted? I know, I know..Mauer.but even on Mauer the organization was divided....The pr...
