Ryan was interviewed the other day and said that the last year or so Krivsky is the one who starts the trade negotiations and Anthony is the one who does the FA and contract negotiations and he...
Yeah. And the Rockies get some $$$ too. Twins' equivalent (if not more, because of MLB-readiness and team control years) is something like May and Darnell. I'd do that in a heartbeat.
I would have no issue with signing Arroyo as a number 3. Now that Hughes has this role, Arroyo is redundant. With Nolasco a number 2, Correia a number 4 and a bunch of people fighting for number 5,...
Allegedly Ryan was not willing to give away that second round draft pick for a starter, I just cannot see him giving it away for Drew plus paying him 3/$36M or something. I just don't see it, but...
And Ryan inherited a team 2 years away from a world championship and a year away from a 90 win season, managed to trade its core away and end up with a perennial 90 loss team. Or do we want to...
And Ryan gets rewarded for 2012 with the removal of the "interim" title and gets zero blame for 2013.
Guess when "Terry Ryan" is on the plaque, the plaque is made from Teflon.

Agreed. And also to add to that argument is that more than half of the Twins' losses were decided by 2 runs or less and that they lost close to 80% of the games that were either decided by 2 runs or...
This is way too one sided... and silly. Because Smith was an administrator and he delegated baseball personnel related decisions to his direct reports. Those are the ones who made those decisions...

The only thing is that perceived "value on basepaths" is based on SBs and SBs are situation (hard to steel with 2 outs) and manager (some like to run more than others) dependent... SBs are like...

Seth, why don't you right something about John Buck and about Bronson Arroyo while you are still hot?

The off-season is still young

Last season was the best of the last 3 on the plate for Davis. His slash line: .260/.312/.375 ; his career slash line an almost identical .268/.316/.377. He will be 33 next season so about to...

a. An important point in that list of current Twins' OF is that 7 of them are on the 40 man roster (and I do not view Rosario as an OF at this point and Buxton will not be up there in 2014) and...
And all that said, Rosenthal is tweeting that the Twins and Arroyo are heating up. Hope it is a smoke screen by his agent to get someone like the Phillies to make it happen...
Today Ryan this morning was talking about Pelfrey and (Johan) Santana. Allegedly they have a 2/$10M offer out to Pelfrey.
That said, I will be surprised if they sign another pitcher. If they add...
Really got to be careful with those inaccurate PED accusations. Totally uncool.
Pridie tested positive for street drugs not PEDs.
a. An increase in BABIP indeed means that he faced more batters. He just struck them out at a lesser rate than in 2012. K% is a rate thing.
b. Yeah it would, but a team needs 22 more guys and...
No way :)
Ks are not balls in play, so they are not counted in the BABIP...
So you feel that the Twins will get a bargain and will be able to do much if they have $70M committed on 3 players...
So you think that a 5/$125-150M extension (on top of his current contract) would make sense for the Twins? Because that is what it would take. And we are talking about a guy whose FB velocity...

I think that the most amazing thing about this article was the fact that a major reporter in the major Seattle paper wrote it and the editors published it.
Imagine that happening in Twins'...
Cannot use cumulative measurements to compare 2 players when one has 3x the PAs in a given time.
Not sure that Gardner brings anything to the table that Alex Presley does not. Gardner has a career 97 OPS+ (2000+ PAs), Pressley 98 (850 or so PAs). Presley is 2 years younger. Gardner could...
From 2000 on the Twins were the definition of mediocrity cumulatively:
Their W-L record was 1152-1117
They finished first 5 times
They finished second 2 times
They finished third 2 times
1982? Bruno, Gaetti, Hrbek, Viola were already in the majors, Puckett was a rookie in E-town, Gagne was a Yankee at the beginning of the season and players like Blyleven, Reardon and Gladden were...
here is another name in that pipeline: Chase Mullins. Really big (D tackle size) LHP who can reach high 90s with his FB. Missed all last season after TJ surgery. Interesting to see...
