    We seem to be back to the situation we had at the start of the season, where Pinto wasn't playing full-time...only worse? Gah. This is exactly the kind of situation I was afraid of with our roster...

    Wait until May gets past "Super 2" status to bring him up. Yes, he's pitching well, but the walks are still an issue that he should be working on, and frankly it's a problem that will almost...

    With Fuld joining Hicks on the DL, there's no decent solution for CF (but again, that's a self-inflicted wound with the absurdity of the way they shuffled Presley, Mastro, etc around in favor of...

    This. There's enough filler on the 40-man to find room for Guerrier, but the Twins are carrying too many pitchers on the 25-man right now, having an embarrassingly thin bench, and an imbalanced...

    The frustrating thing is with the current roster construction and Gardy's peccadilloes as a manager, there's absolutely no place for Parmelee on the Twins roster. We're carrying a gazillion pitchers,...

    I'm not going to worry about Gibson's K rate as much if he can the ground ball rate high and the walks don't get out of control. So far the walks are a bit higher than I'd like, but he's keeping the...

    I'm fairly pleased with Hughes myself. I always thought he could be a good value for the twins, especially playing at Target Field, and so far that seems to be true. I do think he's going to do...

    Willingham might go after this season if he keeps getting hurt, but I doubt he'll retire in the middle of this season. He looks like he still has something left in the tank, the question is whether...

    While I agree that based on merit Deduno should be in the rotation and is miscast as a reliever, I'm mostly ok with taking another turn or two through the rotation before making a decision on kicking...

    I am completely baffled by Bartlet making this roster. He's got almost no upside at all, hasn't shown anything this spring, hasn't played recently, hasn't played well in even longer, and doesn't have...

    If Bartlet makes this squad I might vomit. And I say this as someone who didn't want him dealt all those years ago. But he's done nothing to indicate he's got anything left in the tank, and with...

    Of these options, Morales is the one I like the best, which isn't entirely good. Dozier is a huge asset at 2B, both on offense and defense (assuming the second half of the season is who he is as a...

    If we couldn't get one of the top starters on the market, Phil Hughes was my number 1 target out of the next batch. I always wanted him, and I was ecstatic when we got a 3 year deal on him at this...

    This suggests that Pinto might well make the roster:

    I think it's a reasonable scenario, barring a trade that brings back a bench bat. Colabello is probably the odd man out because I suspect Gardy would prefer the known quantity, veteran presence of...

    I would prefer to have Pinto be on the MLB roster and catching at least 50% of the time, but I think the team feels he needs more working on his catching skills and will want him catching every day...

    since I also said that I'd want Pinto playing in no less than a 50% split with Suzuki, I don't think I've contradicted myself. I see a need to develop him as a MLB catcher, so sit on him in the...

    I hate the idea that Pinto won't be coming north with the team. I see zero upside for Fryer/Herrmann and a real need to develop Pinto.

    I agree with the status on the OF. But I'm really hoping...

    I really want the position players to read:

    C: Pinto
    1B: Mauer
    2B: Dozier
    SS: Florimon
    3B: Plouffe
    LF: Arcia
    CF: Hicks
    RF: Parmelee

    Hughes was always one of the guys I felt the Twins should target this offseason, and I'm pretty happy with landing him for both the length of the deal and the price. But his long term success if...

    I'd prefer to have Pinto be the starter with Suzuki the backup, and hopefully by midseason that's the case. I expect Pinto to eventually be an asset at the plate, but I think it is going to take a...

    The Twins should be looking at carrying 6 bullpen guys, considering they're expecting significantly better pitching from the starters, but with guys like Diamond & Worley out of options they're more...

    Willingham needs to play some in the field to show that he can survive out there; if he's an exclusive DH it would reduce his trade value as it'd be a message that the club thinks he just can't hack...

    I'm interested in both Jackson & Turner.

    If Jackson can stick at catcher with a plus bat, he'd be a nice fit for the system and with Pinto looking like a MLB-quality player the team could give...
