    I could definitely see him not having changed his approach, because he is being pitched slightly differently this year. He's been seeing 3 percentage points fewer fastballs, 3 more in changeups,...

    As the saying goes, hitting is contagious and when you have Sano, Rosario, and Vargas for teammates it's hard not to catch it.

    This is kind of what I was thinking, from what I understand in a scouting perspective, floor is the worst case scenario barring him turning into Rick Ankiel or Brandon Webb the last few years.

    Seth just gave Sano a new nickname. Mauer is Baby Jesus, Sano is Short LeBron.

    I think it is worth trying to start the year with this bunch of stuff, at least as long as the non-Tommy John/major shoulder brigade are being expected to go get 7 or 8 decently pitched innings. I...

    I would say he has a very strong chance. It comes down to how much he catches the rest of the way. If he catches 80-110 games a year for at least 3-4 more years, which I think he would do if they...

    If I was them I would do both, every time. In high school I had shoulder/lat weakness that cause me to drop my elbow and it messed with my elbow. I also broke my hand and had hand/wrist weakness. ...

    I would think Diamond is one of the ones who Gardenhire would let stretch out to 110-115. After 110 I would pull him and don't worry about it. His left arm in the next couple years is potentially...

    I wouldn't say he's worthless. He's .306/.379/.546 vs. righthanders. Good for a 144 OPS+ compared to other lefties vs. righties. He's just being weighted down by a .147/.185/.225 vs. lefties. Good...

    We'll stick with the 2002-2007 and 2008-2012 time frames because I see the idea of pre-Dave Duncan and post-Dave Duncan type argument. (Data from Fangraphs)

    I figured this team had a chance to win around 80 games if the bats did what most people thought they would and the pitching was even slightly below average. In their last 29 games, they are 15-14. ...

    Patrick Wisdom is the biggest reach in supp round so far. He hit in the past but serious draft-itis this year.

    They have to go BPA, if they have him higher than McCullers, Eflin, Smoral, even Piscotty or Gallo as hitters, you take him, but I have a hard time seeing them being that high on him when BA has him...

    Baseball America has Eflin 31 and MLB.com has him 25, so there's that. Smoral is also 24 and 28 respectively.

    By Baxter are you referring to Byron Buxton? Personally I think they should go for both. You can never have enough prospects. Even if it feels like they have a million toolsy outfielders, of Hicks,...

    I would think it's Span, Revere, Benson. I really think Benson is behind Mastroianni in the order of call ups because 2 (at minimum) of the four will have to get hurt before they can even think...
