    You question Santana because of previous reports on his defense , but you let Nunez slide by on that, saying with work it can be acceptable? Huh?

    LOL. Now we're cherry-picking statistical practices. This method and any others you find convenient, by the way, are the reason people ignore good statistical analysis.

    I've read on and see that...

    Older players rarely matter at all. Who are the 17 yr olds holding their own?

    Amen, brother.

    Amen, brother.

    Bravo. I thought I was the only one who thought the Twins decision-making has basically been clownish the whole Ryan era, in spite of an award or two and the respect he seems to command. And...

    I think the question with the bat is whether MLB pitchers find a hole, and he looks terrible, or whether he just reverts to his minor league numbers. I suspect it's the latter, and that puts him in...

    Good piece, Nick, well said. Twins mgmt on and off field is clownish. That's my take, but people need "foot in the door" articles, I suppose, more than my "door in the face" comments. But somehow...

    Sorry, didn't read all the comments. The shortstops mentioned are all flawed and likely very costly. Lowrie is the Todd Walker of shortstops: no range yet the current metrics don't kill him. ...

    It's possible he could be a SS, but every remark I've read by evaluators is that his arm and range aren't there. His errors are a result of his relative inability to get in proper position to field...

    Sorry, Seth, if they're going to wait until June, they're going to wait until mid to late June. Super 2 isn't safely escaped from until the summer solstice!

    I always love it when people forget who is managing.

    Except in the bullpen he could pitch in low-leverage situations. Meanwhile the Twins are pitching Samuel Deduno 2-4 innings in games that are basically lost.

    The only reason the Twins should EVER bunt is 1....

    The only reason the Twins should EVER bunt is 1. traditional bunting situation, and 2. Florimon is up, and pinch-hitting isn't an option (e.g. the stud hitter who would win the game for you is your...

    Yes, it's not like a guy can hit well over a 10-day stretch or that this particular guy is old for his league. ;-)

    First, Kubel did not turn down a major league offer to sign a minor league offer with the Twins. Show me one player who has done that, and I'll show the most absolute exception to the rule to ever...
  17. This is a depth the Twins haven't seen for quite...

    This is a depth the Twins haven't seen for quite a while. Unfortunately, it's very low-quality depth, but the first step is to have a choice, so that's progress. My biggest fears with this team are...

    Trea Turner looks to stay at shortstop. I would be shocked if the Twins passed on him. Having trouble remembering the last top ten college middle infielder to succeed, though (or to even be top ten...
  19. First, it's really, really sad when you're...

    First, it's really, really sad when you're constantly cheering against your GM's rumored moves. Second, Bonnes, my friend, stop with the "money to burn" thing. All money matters. Just because...

    Well, Terry Ryan, for one, would do something like this from the other side (unfortunately) and Bill Smith would have given up more. So maybe you need to correct your statement about GMs to exclude...

    Check out his stats versus teams other than the Twins. They're not good, as the Twins were 20% of his starts.

    Hrbek, but only because we really only got a 4.5 year good (great!) stretch from Morneau. Morneau should have been better than Hrbek, and I have only a little doubt he would have been. Morneau at...

    Larsen is the one rookie-ball hitter I've noticed stats-wise. Not to be a downer, and perhaps this is obvious, but this type of guy, with all his production, is still extremely unlikely to be...

    He'll get a start for Ft. Myers then maybe one for NB. Then the AFL.
  25. Um, yeah, Kepler's a no-brainer. Does the same...

    Um, yeah, Kepler's a no-brainer. Does the same hold true for Sano? They were signed the same year, but not really, as Kepler signed at the regular time and Sano signed late, if you remember.
