    Correia needs to go for nothing more than fan's psyche! May and Meyer will likely not be instantly better than Correia, but it signals a glimpse at his potential and even if/when they fail, it will...

    I wont get all technical and spew a bunch of numbers at everyone, but look at Kyle Gibson. As a groundball inducing pitcher, he greatly struggled with Mauer catching because Mauer was terrible at...

    I agree with you Seth. Having a good veteran around the younger kids (prospect or not) gives them some leadership that is different from their coaches. These types can teach the younger players how...

    Why does no one mention moving Perkins. On a potential 85-90 loss team, couldn't Fien or someone else be given a shot to be the closer? This was hashed out last year as well, but other than Perkins...
  5. Hicks' BA is looking solid, but he still is not...

    Hicks' BA is looking solid, but he still is not getting any extra base hits! Two 2B's and 2 HR's so far is a little discouraging. I also notice he is playing RF, while Rosario is in CF. I don't ever...
  6. Don't trade just for the sake of trading. Dozier...

    Don't trade just for the sake of trading. Dozier isn't elite, but he is definitely in the next tier. If Dozier can mantain his level of play into next year this conversation will fit the Twins...

    Thyros I really wish there was a down vote option for your comments. Your "smartest guy in the room" routine is unbelievably obnoxious.

    If Dunn dropped a bunt down successfully and reached base at a .600 clip from bunting, I still don't think teams would change its approach. Dunn IS dangerous because he has about as much raw power as...

    I think there is a difference between being "athletic" and havng "fluidity/(insert whatever adjective you want here). I have spent 11 years coaching HS and college basketball and sometimes the best...

    There aren't two that aren' going to be a part of the future. Kepler may be the only one. The problem isn't the prospects on the 40, but the "veterans" on it that have no place on ANYONE's 40 man....

    I am still in the camp of bringing May and Meyer up and putting them in medium to low leverage situations out of the bullpen a la the Cardinals. It saves innings on their arms and they can get a...

    Actually, send Pinto to AAA and let him play everyday. Suzuki is playing well and hopefully he can maintain. I'm all for versatility, but being bad or average at a lot of things doesn't make you...

    I agree with you on the command vs control issue. BUT, this guy has a .125 BAA and isn't walking people at a terrible rate. 100mph heat is hard to hit period. There is less need to paint the corners...

    I don't get all the "hate" for Nick Gordon. There are some very reputable analysts/scouts that have him as a top 3 prospect. I look at the tools and if he develops to the projections, I see the...

    The Pitching depth is looking so much better in both the bullpen and the rotation at the upper levels. Ryan Pressly was pretty decent last year with the Twins and this year at Rochester there are...

    I have a hard time seeing Sano on the big league roster at this time next year. He will have missed a year and will likely start the year in AA again. He may need a month to get his feet wet and then...

    According to an article on the MN Twins site, Hicks started switchi-hitting at age 11.

    Next year's starting OF will be Arcia in LF (.815 OPS), Hicks in CF (.735 OPS), Parmelee in RF (OPS .800). Buxton won't be up unless he absolutely FORCES his way up. If he does, Arcia, Parmelee and...

    I'm not just picking on you Brock, but to those that think Hicks in RF provides ANY value are going to be sadly disappointed (if they can be even more disappointed). Hicks was supposed to be...

    One thing I LOVE about Polanco is his ability to compartmentalize his defensive struggles from hindering his offense. I am sure he is mentally tough, but I would be willing to bet Dougie M's...

    Escobar is a little too much of a free-swinger for Gardy to put him in the leadoff spot.

    I was right there with you. The upside is that the Twins are flirting with .500 with guys like Hicks and Florimon providing TONS of empty at bats. Arcia, thought to be a major cog in our offense, has...
