I can try to explain it.
Quoted from this article "high stress, high pitch count innings can be really detrimental"
Innings Pitched | Baseball Guys
Gibson's best secondary pitch is the...
I am not sure how Liriano's performance this year is relevant. The only way the Twins could keep him under control for this year was to make him a qualifying offer. The contract he signed is evidence...
They need to learn as much as they can about Florimon this year. He is not a utility option. He either starts at SS or take him off the 40.
Escobar's long term major league role will likely be...

Lots of small sample discussion here. Hopefully the Twins aren't using stats in these size samples to make a decision. Evaluation of the coaches and staff at the games should carry much more weight....

The Yankees need to stay under luxury tax for next year so they would not take on a 2014 contract. They did get creative in the Wells deal that may be a possibility. Somehow Angels have 2014 burden....

I am certain they would not be willing. This would be a steal for the Twins.
Last year the Reds gave up a couple of C prospects for a guy they would use in the set up role in Broxton. They weren't...

Some need to be traded. I don't think any of them can get more than we got for Liriano. Maybe Burton. We might be able to buy prospects by sending cash with Willingham or Morneau. Plouffe probably...

I think I am on your side. The reason he is the only good trade chip is also very valuable to the team. They really would need to get a good prospect for him.

If they are going to trade Burton at his highest value, they should do so soon.
Deadline trades last summer for relievers.
To White Sox: RP Brett Myers
To Astros: P Matt Heidenreich, P Blair...

On the topic of trade chips and considering players in the decline phase...
Perkins is probably the only good trade chip. He has a reasonable contract and is pitching well. He will fit a team in...

His contract and performance make him valuable. Some teams won't trade top prospects for closers, but we need to find just one team willing. It would definitely be a sell high (as were Span and...
How is Santana's defense at SS?
06-11-2013, 05:13 PM
I still think they can find plenty of at bats for Arcia.
In a six game week, Doumit, Willingham and Morneau can each get a day and Parmelee two (with an occasional Mauer day off). That's 5 starts...
He should move to AA when he is ready. That doesn't mean he has to be ready to dominate. Learning how to deal with struggle is an important part of development. There really should be no other...

I can only read the mixed reports on Gonsalves listed above where some see a steal and others a reach. That is not unusual for high school guys. He certainly is a risk. An older college guy in that...
It really has been an encouraging year for prospects. Nearly all of the better prospects entering this year have performed well. That never happens. Hopefully the Meyer injury is a minor one.
06-10-2013, 06:17 PM
I am on the side of another 4 weeks in AAA. If he continues to do well in AAA, give him a half season in the majors.
06-10-2013, 05:55 PM
Selecting on both extremes of high school power and more polished strike throwing college player seems like sensible balance in the draft.
I think Parmelee is a better option than Arcia or Herrmann.

According to baseball reference...
Runs scored 248 (11th)
Runs allowed 266 (8th)
Mike Berardino reports that Alex Meyer is on the shelf with a sore shoulder.
Good news about Butera...
The next time the Twins move someone off the 40 (Mastroianni return?), Butera will be a candidate. Ryan implied that he was not eligible when they made decision about...

I think all of those fall in the large enough sample umbrella. Could this be a change in approach with the goal of increasing power? The side effect being increased strike outs.

Time to pitch and defend.
06-08-2013, 06:37 PM
Time for the statue in the other corner to pay off.
