Worley needed a confidence building start. He got through 6 good innings... no need to risk all that progress being lost in one bad inning.

I would argue long term contracts to position players are inherently less risky than a pitcher considering the epidemic of Tommy John surgeries.
A pitcher has a significantly lower number of...

There's also the difference between being a position player at a premium position vs being a starter pitching every 5 days.
If you have player A and B are equal levels of talent at their...

No, what i'm saying is both of our statements hold equal merit due to the lack of a shred of tangible evidence on either side.

How bout this. I'll continue to root for the Team I've been a fan of my whole life, and you can root for a player on the team (I can only assume) you are a fan of to fail.

And yet Correia turned out to be a good pitcher.
It's almost as if guys who get payed to evaluate talent are better at it than the fans.

People still get killed for being gay. Having a crowd scream slurs me would scare the hell out of me if I was in a similar situation. In general people are OK... groups? Not so much.

Just to throw some more gasoline on the fire here...
The good Liriano showed up in Pittsburgh today. Liriano has 8 K's through 5 innings and has given up 3 hits and no runs so far against the...

that's the short answer.

I seriously doubt the twins didn't make serious offer for Grienke and Sanchez.
Aren't unverifiable statements fun?

That would actually be ideal. If Pelfrey and Correia play well enough to continue their success... The Twins either are somehow in playoff contention, or they are close but not close enough. Twins...

Good start by a guy who likely had 1 or 2 chances left before he forced the Twins to take him out of the rotation. If Pelfrey can turn into a solid rotation guy... The Twins could have something...

This is an unforgivable error.

So Twins draft 4th. What are the odds Appel is available at that spot? And that the Twins draft him?
I really feel like the Twins should bite the bullet on a Boras client for this one. They...

I really don't understand the compulsion to define a statistical category for defense.
Defense is just not something that can be defined on stats alone. Certain stats can get your a vague...

oh look. This thread again.
Yeah let's fire the manager for not wanting to overuse his bullpen early in the year by not pulling a starter who looked like he was finally getting it together.

It's not to say that THIS year Mastriani has much to worry about with his 25 man roster spot... but Let's face it... He's on his last or 2nd to last year as a viable backup for the Twins (and there...
04-25-2013, 05:58 PM
That's obviously not my point. What I'm saying is people present their baseless speculation as some sort of proven fact. Or in this case, claim to have any knowledge whatsoever on Mastriani's...

It's almost as if a bubble player tried to play through an injury knowing was one of his last chances.
04-24-2013, 07:26 PM
Yes we should. There is a lot of talking out of one's ass that happens on a forum. People claim to know that the Twins could have signed player X but were cheap... or Lowballed player y.
Slowey had a right to privately go to management, the public and defiant nature he chose to voice those concerns lost him any right to sympathy for how he was treated.
Slowey complained about...
oh the poor thing... used 3 times in 4 days! what's next? Prison camp?
So the Twins picked the wrong starter about to stop producing meaningful innings to hitch their wagon to. The horror.
I'm convinced. The Twins used Slowey as a scapegoat to distract from growing rumors that TC is actually a bigfoot (which completely explains his raw animal-like power)
