    Shane, I agree that winning trumps all, however everything we hear says the Twins clubhouse is a morgue. With the 162 game grind you need players who can pick others up, provide vocal leadership and...

    It is a little sad when your $20M + catcher turned first baseman provides so little leadership that you need to bring Bartlett and Kubel back to help change the culture in the clubhouse!

    Cutting Pressley is not going to hurt the Twins IMHO. He is a fringe player and we've got other fringe players who can replace him, like Mastroiani. Bartlett may not get the job done and if so,...
  4. MLB Weighs in on all Arbitration cases

    MLB creates a value for each of the players that are set to go through arbitration. They evaluated Plouffe against other 3rd baseman and estimated a "market rate" based upon his performance to date...
  5. Mauer?

    I realize Mauer has just made the FT move to 1st base, but why couldn't he be a potential solution at 3rd? There is no question it is hard to switch positions, however, in my opinion, Mauer would be...

    I like the logic (and the optimism!). It is hard to find pitchers with Pelfrey's size, FB velo and overall stuff.

    The other pitcher I believe will surprise in a positive manner is Gibson. He...

    Thanks for this info. I watched a video of him throwing and was wondering why he was considered a "soft tossing lefty". Not sure when the video was shot, but he was consistently 91-92 with his...

    I agree with those who say Collabello. Great story with his long minor league history and stats, but doesn't appear that he will ever be an impact player in MLB.

    My #1 reason

    We we need some life and accountability in the clubhouse! Who on the current roster is willing to be the least bit vocal? It's a long season and joe Mauer is an incredible talent but by all...

    I think we'd be better off finding a couple of up and coming pitchers vs. those on the back side of their careers. Both Haren and Lincecom are quickly deteriorating, but if I had to choose 1 I like...

    Does anyone have input on Madison Boer? I would have expected our 2nd round pick from 2011? to be on list or at least a mention in "others". Haven't really followed him, but wondering what the word...

    They need to hate to lose!

    When I think of Gladden, Gaetti, Hrbek, Puckett, Hunter I think of guys who hated to lose. I just don't get that impression with the current team and think some of those types have to be added. ...

    One other things while I'm hot! I was with an ex MLB player over the weekend and he is convinced a large part of the Twins problem is that some many of the players have spent their careers on losing...

    This is a HUGE problem for the Twins and Terry Ryan/Gardenhire own it. They know what you need over a long season in order to get a team to play at or above their potential. Let's face it, Mauer is...

    Mr Brooks--I think Terry Ryan should try to sign him to a multi year deal. Again, he's far from perfect, but I just don't see a wave of talent behind him in the farm system or via FA that would be...

    I agree with Brandon--There is no cavalry coming to save Twins pitching in 2014. Pelfrey will eat innings and is getting better. Coming off TJ surgery the odds are high that he will be better in...
