    The argument against Dozier is the obvious one given by the OP. There are just too many great and very good 2nd Baseman in the AL. Cano and Altuve (required Houston All-Star and he's deserving...

    Hughes, Meyer, Gibson, Nolasco, and the best lefty starter they have: Kris Johnson, Logan Darnell, Sean Gilmartin or one acquired in trade or via free agency!

    Correia and Willingham are trade-able. It would be crazy to trade Hughes, Morales and Suzuki.

    Meyer is a September call-up (probably), possibly earlier. We will probably not have to wait for next year. The Twins have the luxury of having a number of good starters at the Big league and AA...

    By the way, is anyone out there willing to bet that Kurt Suzuki will have a better batting average than Joe Mauer at the end of the season? I'm even willing to bet that WAR and other stats will...

    Joe Mauer and John Cena

    For those who are both Baseball and Wrestling fans, I see a parallel between the fans' reaction to Mauer and the WWE fans' reaction to John Cena. The casual fan will accept them as their favorite...

    After watching the Michael Sam publicity, I figured out what bothers me. It's not just the Christian athletes. I really think the TV, radio and written commentary spends too much time on the "up...

    People certainly have a right to speak about their religious views, and I have a right to hope they get to talking about the game or their playing of the game. If an athlete appears on Pat...

    At the risk of digging into that open can of worms:
    Dozier is having a great year as a player, but I don't think it's unusual or all that courageous for a baseball player to speak about his...

    Pat Mahomes on Anti-Rushmore

    Rather than some short-lived Twins like Livan (Sells Cartoon Balloons in Town) Hernandez and Sidney Ponzon, I'd pick one that had the Twins faithful all excited when he came up from the minors. Yet,...

    Back to my Anti-Rushmore (the four worst Twins), I note that I don't put Hosken, Bombo nor Disco on the face of that Mount of Shame. Hosken has a shot, and Disco had his peculiarities, but Bombo...

    The anti-rushmore - twins 4 all-time worst

    The positive Rushmore is easy, except for choosing between Mauer and Oliva.

    Look at it this way:" Of the retreads, Bartlett is gone fast, Guerrier has an outside chance of making some contribution at some point this season, and Kubel is contributing in the field and...

    Burton looked a little better last night. Better than utterly lousy, but still better. So, I expect the Twins will stick with him a little bit longer.
  16. Why Not Play Ball in the Snow - 4/16/2014????

    Why cancel the game? You baseball players and wimpy fans can't handle a little snow. They play football in the snow. Why not baseball? We're not the Orlando Twins - this is a Team from MINNESOTA...

    The Twins' Steve Lombardozzi was viewed as a light hitting player, but he had a .233 batting average. That would be the Lombo Line!!!!!

  22. Position Players/DHs Still Here on Opening Day 2016???

    As I look at our position players, I wonder who will still be here in 2016:
    Certain (95% Plus): Mauer (barring career ending injury, he's here)
    Probable (65% Plus): Hicks, Arcia, Pinto (If they...
