    "Working on secondary pitches and FB command" -- that is my priority. If these people are the cornerstone of the future, let's invest the time in making them as good as they can be.

    And not just...

    You may be right in this particular case but as a general policy I think you're slightly overstating things. There are very good reasons to keep a player in the minors besides penny pinching....

    They what???

    They did??? Awesome! Is that on youtube?

    Pavano turned out to be good for another couple years. How would a long term contract have worked out? Arroyo would require many more years than a Pavano comparison would justify.

    I really hope they don't rush Meyer. I've never seen him pitch but from what I've read his control is still inconsistent and his secondary pitches need work. Why oh why would you promote him before...

    I love it! At that price, he'd be worth it even if he ended up a reliever!

    Sure he could flame out, but given his history and his unfriendly home park, he's also got some serious upside -- and for...
  7. do they have to cut someone?

    couldn't they just wait till after the Rule 5 draft to sign Nolasco?

    All those guys would have a better chance than Duensing, who has never been able to get out right handers. Until he shows a hint of being able to do that, the idea is a joke. Unless you're trying to...

    p.s. This scenario is exactly what made me gnash my teeth when they foolishly, foolishly traded Ramos. The idea that Ramos was expendable because we had Mauer was insane. He was indispensable BECAUSE...
  10. Okay

    I'm one of those people, and yes, Nick just convinced me. This injury is a tipping point for me.

    I have always thought that what made Mauer uniquely valuable was the incredible offensive...

    I hope Slama signs with the A's and does well there, just like Breslow, Balfour, and Neshek.

    If the Twins didn't want to give him a shot, and they obviously didn't, they should have traded him...

    Deduno is at least worth watching -- he's interesting! If you're not going to win much anyone, I'd rather watch strikeouts, wild pitches, walks, and unpredictable ball movement, where anything can...
  13. Slama would be crazy to re-sign with the Twins...

    Slama would be crazy to re-sign with the Twins once he's a free agent. They obviously have never believed in him. I predict he's signed by the A's, and I hope he does well there.
  14. He's not going to make them winners this year,...

    He's not going to make them winners this year, and he's not going to help make them winners in the future. But if he makes people smile in an otherwise dreary year, that's not bad.

    If he started...
  15. Good point. I bet there isn't a team in the...

    Good point. I bet there isn't a team in the league that wouldn't have signed him to this deal. But the Twins offer him the best shot and making the major league rotation. No one would give him...
  16. I agree with everything you say, Nick, and it's...

    I agree with everything you say, Nick, and it's true -- it's a much better pickup than Kevin Correia.

    But "better than a two-year, ten-million-dollar contract to a below average National League...

    Why sign two good pitchers? I think the premise was they were trying to contend.

    Sure they can use castoffs and not-ready minor leaguers; they did that the past two years. But they wouldn't very...

    I think so

    Can anyone understand this post????[/QUOTE]

    Yeah I think he's just saying proceed with caution with Japanese players and scout them better than we did Nishioka.

    I like the idea of gambling on a...

    Sniff. The selfless generosity. They're all heart. They were still high on his future, but they loved him so much they let him go.

    "I would say now is not the time to trade either guy. Let contending teams become more and more desperate toward the deadline and drive up the value of our assets."

    That may be true in general...

    pitching worries

    I'm a little worried that the recent respectable streak is built on a mirage. I agree the offense and bullpen seem fine, but remain very concerned about starting pitching. Can we really expect the...

    Good point about Willingham's slow fielding on the Pujols rbi. He didn't seem in any hurry to throw.

    I don't see why that Bourjos fly wasn't catchable though. Willingham wasn't running hard, he...
