    Lots of people are only playing the cards we have in our hand right now. I think LF is wide open in this org and they could easily grab another bat the way they did with Willingham. Rosario has not...

    Guerrier threw a ton of very good innings in a 4-5 year window and used up his arm. It's what happens to middle relief guys that experience some success. It was fun to see him come back, but he has...

    Pressley was most likely picked because he can go multiple innings and the bullpen is gassed right now. Deduno picked up Correia Sunday, Swazcak started last night and Gibson is not solid heading...

    I don't mind a Wise Old Man at the end of the bench, but Burton was already sitting there when Guerrier sat down, and the other end of that bench was full of guys like Correia and Nolasco and Hughes....

    He's getting older, maybe he needs glasses.

    Seriously, I would not be surprised, but I also wonder if he's disproportionately affected by the new craze of video gme defensive alignments. He...

    All true. I expect two things to happen as a result: Pinto will sit on the bench and continue to rust, and eventually Suzuki will start breaking down and we'll have Pinto and Hermann full time for...

    Both Colabello and Parmalee said the same things when they returned from the wilderness as improved hitters (I know, but humor me for a moment): "I'm more aggressive now. I waited too much for great...

    Once May or Pelfrey (or Johnson or whoever) is ready they should trade Correia to Texas for a CF or SS. Don't hold out for anything great, just shore up the roster a bit and free some room. His...

    They were too worried about blocking Hicks/Buxton, too concerned about Willingham's feelings to not consider playing him more at DH and less in LF, and way too optimistic in assuming guys would stay...

    If anything I'd put Santana at SS while he's hot and let utilityman Escobar play CF while he's hot. Then when things need to change just send out Santana to learn SS at AAA.

    "What, a Fryer, Herrmann, Florimon bench doesnt do anything for you?"

    It would be kind of cool if they had Florimon start catching. Who else could claim a five C roster? I mean, if you want to...

    The Twins are doing a bad job solving the problem at SS, but I do cut them some slack in cases where there's a prospect coming that makes it hard to sign a real player to a real deal. What CF wants...

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. Why, in Rochester alone there are three outfielders on the roster: Chris Parmelee, Wilkin Ramierez and someone named Chris Rahl. And there are four,...

    Diamond and Deduno were already pitching last year and couldn't have picked up an extra 30 starts. And bargain bin signings do work out if your goal is just filling holes in the short term. It's not...

    Escobar, Florimon and Nunez are your options. Dozier is playing well at 2b and they won't create a hole there to take a chance he fixes things at SS. So who's left in the org?

    I think a lot of teams have a lot more than $5m of dead wood each year. It's not much at all in a world with a $0.5m minimum salary and total budgets running over $75m. Think of it as two guys not...

    Mauer has had 57 PA and even with the strikeouts his OBP is still .388. If you want to play small samples and chasing endpoints, how about five multi-hit games in his last eight? How about the fact...
