    That's super interesting data on his release point. The vertical change would imply he's not got the same downward trajectory on the ball and would make his stuff more hittable.

    I'm not sure the...

    I'd go for another try with Swarzak starting although you can tell the Twins aren't real hot on that idea. I'm not sure he has the pitches to make it through the batting order 3 times.

    Diamond is...

    Yes to some regression.

    2011 AAA he averaged about 5 1/3 ip, whip of 1.5+, 11+ H/9 although 6.6 so/9 and that's about what he's doing this year.

    Maybe Albers can go 6+ but I don't see any other...

    Scott Diamond has unilateral arm weakness.

    Seriously. He had just barely started his conditioning program to prepare for spring training when his bone chip problem cropped up. This was reported...

    Agree. No disrespect to the player but this team is a better team without him.

    Without question.

    I'd do a riff on his accent but somehow that just doesn't translate well to a forum does it?

    RBI's are all about where you bat and Doumit is getting at bats higher in the order than Arcia or Parmelee. Someone will (undoubtedly) correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Parmelee has an...

    I don't look at their site at all but I have to say this is really cool. Think about how seldom a team has THE prospect. "There can be only one."

    Sort of true. Thing about Arcia is that he is hitting - he's the Twins best hitting OF at the moment. His hitting is also clearly improving. Gardy obviously loves his bat and wants him in the...

    1. I think this thread should be closed. I just read 8 pages of posts - the vast majority of which were NOT about baseball.

    2. I'd like a credit for 7 of those pages.

    Clete Thomas is leading off. Tonight's line up almost looks better if you read it bottom up.

    Ugh.

    Weird move. If these wasn't the Twins I'd say that this was a one week try-out and he wouldn't last the week. Have to believe there are better minor league FA at this point in the season.

    Kind of an odd move on paper. They must see something they like beyond the stats.

    Slama has been awful this year and didn't do much when he was up 2 years ago.

    I don't get the Fien bit. He hasn't had a bad outing since we played at Detroit and he's been consistently nasty. WHIP of .99 and second only to Perkins in K/9. He's better against L batters than...

    Carroll has been called an informal infield coach for the Twins. He's super reliable in the field, plays multiple positions well and while the reduced number of at bats has hurt his numbers he is a...

    Your point about a trade is interesting and might be on the money. But who would trade for a 5th starter at this point?

    Angels might take Pelfrey but what do they do with Blanton;)

    Pelfrey is actually markedly better than a month ago. He's getting a lot more ground ball outs and his stats have been trending up in general.

    Diamond has been having short outings. I suspect he...

    I agree, particularly about Thomas. Hermann looks nice but sending down a pitcher with the starters going roughly 5ip isn't going to happen.

    I can't see Fien getting sent down even if he has options. It would weaken the team. I wonder about Duensing getting sent down sometimes but I still can't see it. I assume Thielbar has options but...

    I think you are right. I thought he had an option left but I realize he wasn't on the 40 man roster when mlbrumors.com made their last list.

    So they have 4 right-handed opponents coming up,...

    Ouch.

    It's not Dozier. They've established last year that a long stretch working on his hitting in AAA isn't going to work. Maybe Bruno can do something while they are both here and Dozier is...

    Hicks and plouffe are on the 15 DL meaning they are still on the 40 man roster. So sending down Thomas shouldn't mean removing him from the 40 man and exposing him to waivers.

    It's when...

    Ah, thanks. I was surprised the normally tight lipped front office would have said anything particularly at this early stage.
