    I have a hunch the decision to keep Bartlett is related to the illness and reduced role of Terry Ryan. Can't prove it, just my gut feeling......if TR was completely in charge and engaged he would...

    Agree with ppearson50, I'm more interested in Kendrys Morales than Cruz or Drew. He would be an improvement on Kubel/Parmelee/Colabello at DH. At 3 years/$12M, or 2 years/$9M I'd consider giving up...

    I agree, but I think a lot of the timing had to do with the fact that Plouffe was on the DL and they still wanted to give Nishi a shot. They didn't want to field an entirely new Middle infield. Now...

    It would be fun to see these guys get a look in September, but I think Parmelee has dibs on any available at bats even if they come in RF. On the other hand, Parmelee has played exactly zero games...

    With 2 open spots on the 40 man roster (plus Nishioka, who could be dropped), there is no harm in claiming him. The Twins can always change their mind and release him later.

    The Twins are still...

    I saw Rosario play 2B in Beloit a couple of weeks ago. I thought he got some poor jumps/reads.....like he is still learning the position. I also could see the athleticism; he made an awesome relay...

    If changes like this are on the horizon, they'll wait until Gardy is back with the team. He is attending his daughter's college graduation and missing the Seattle series.

    I agree, I've wondered if 3B might be his best infield position. It's less complex than the middle infield, at least mentally.

    When I moved back to Minnesota in '03 I thought Gladden was unpolished, but for several years he has been my favorite Twins broadcaster. I like that he speaks his mind a little and how he gives an...

    DFA Nishioka and Mastroianni to make room on the 40 man. 1 will never get claimed, and the other is redundant with Clete Thomas.

    Thinking about how relievers often alternate good and bad years, I've wondered if there is a better way to use relievers. Phrasing it differently, I've wondered if bullpen construction/usage is a...

    Did you notice on the replay of Hunter's 9th inning hustle double that Denard was looking up for a flyball, with his arms out saying "where is it"? That explains why it took so long for him to get...

    My predictions: I predict Plouffe starts in RF Saturday, Doumit returns to the lineup at catcher Sunday with Mauer at 1B. Not sure when Hughes and Revere get their first starts. Burroughs will wait...

    So Casilla is the backup shortstop. Has he played any shortstop this spring? I don't remember seeing it in the boxscores.

    I still wonder if they're looking for a utility infielder on the waiver...

    I agree removing Nishioka is good option, but they don't need to do it yet, so they will at least wait until they need the spot. If they want to to make a waiver claim or sign Roy Oswalt they can...

    FYI - Beloit Snappers single game tickets went on sale this morning at 10:00. Katie said I was the first caller at 10:15, so I don't think there is a rush. Box seats are $7.50, and there was no...

    I'm also intrigued by Towles, but I think Butera is too well liked by Gardy and Pavano to be cut. Also, is Butera out of options? I thought he was, but Mackey says no.
