  • #Hangout and Talk Twins: Pioneer Press' Mike Berardino

    Technical difficulties backed up kickoff about 10 minutes, but we were able to speak with the Pioneer Press's Mike Berardino for about an hour on Tuesday night. You probably already know that he's a pretty knowledgeable dude and he'd make any stathead's night.

    We also talked about the free agent market and a whole lot of other things Twins. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and we'll see you again next Tuesday night!

      It would be great if you guys put up an event invitation on G+ also for this. The Twins Daily account has never posted anything publicly over there. This might be a great first thing to share!

      Do the Twins feel pressure to get something done quickly(they should), and multiple things? The longer they wait, the less choices they will have to pick from.

      I'm not sure who runs the TD G+ account. Parker, maybe?

      Any Rule 5 draft targets that you would like the Twins to pick? I think they should draft a reliever or middle-infielder. Pressly worked out pretty well last year.

      While pitchers are more easy to hide on a 25 man roster,To me it is better to take the best avalible player.If there are 2 or more who are very close, then you take according to need.But that is just me

      What prospects would you trade? And for who?

      I asked this question on a Rosario thread. Is there any current update on timing for resolution about his suspension? Last we heard, MLB needed to look into the situation. I have not heard that things are official. Do you have any deeper update? Thank you.

      Do you believe the Twins offered Mike Pelfrey a 2-year deal? If they did why??

      I have been wondering if Terry Ryan is receiving pressure from ownership and Dave St. Peter to rebuild this team on faster time line than way he has in past. It seems to me if interest drops both in attendance and Tv viewership that is going to cost the Twins dearly in the future. This is something different than Terry experienced being in Metro-dome where they were doing business as low cost operation and built team on cheap by developing it from the farm system. Now there costs are much higher in Target field but if they get attendance and viewership rewards are much higher also. I guess to put into nut shell there in much more expensive poker game and I wonder if Terry can adapt to this new game.

      Actually, teams can make more than one Rule 5 pick, right? Obviously you would need the open roster spots, but I am pretty sure the Rule 5 draft runs until nobody wants to draft anymore (or runs out of roster spots).

      And if any team is going to have multiple open roster spots, it's the 2014 Twins!

      All of the phases of the Rule 5 draft go until all teams pass. I am fairly certain that the Astros had two Rule 5 guys on their Opening Day roster this past year. (Or at least leading up to Opening Day.)
